Testosterone Bloat

Hello, just wondering if anyone feels bloated and full while using their testosterone cream, like you just had a big meal? Also was wondering if anyone has gone past a few weeks on the cream before they felt their libido come back? I heard the norm is 2 weeks. I'm at .5mg/1ml for 14 days now, lots of energy, but no libido. My saliva and blood both showed low testosterone . Thanks for any imput

I don't feel bloated or full when using my testost. cream. Progesterone cream has made me that way tho'.

I think it can take awhile for testosterone to kick in the libido, not sure of an exact timeline, as everyone is different. You may need a bit more if you don't feel it after awhile, although I have heard of women who don't get a benefit in that way at all.

Good Luck!

Testosterone Bloat

Hi tjj You are on a pretty low dose of testosterone cream... 0.5mg/ml is roughly (depending on the density of the base) .05% testosterone. For comparison, mine is 1% (10mg per gram of cream, where a ml of cream is about equal to a gram), which is 20 times stronger. Usual women's dosage is from 1/2% to 2% .

So, if you're going to see results, I would guess it would take a much longer time than for those of us who started on a stronger dose, but then you might not have to back way down on your usage as many of us do, to avoid symptoms of too much testosterone.
