Compounded Testosterone

From No Uterus - No Ovaries - Yes HRT - Surgical Menopause

My gyn just added compounded testosterone to go along with vivelle dot. It is 1mg/0.1ml cream in preloaded syringes. I am to apply 2mg/0.2ml to inner thigh every morning. Is this too much? I'm not sure. I definitely DO NOT want to grow a beard. Any advice? My levels in March before Hyst were: Total, (Inside) 12.3 ng/dL 14-76 Free, (Outside) 0.5 pg/mL 0.0-4.2
