Smile - 2 % Testosterone Cream 2 % Testosterone Cream

Hi, I just filled my compounded hormone presciptions yesterday which are Tri-est, Bi-est, progesterone and Testosterone, all are creams. The Testosterone in the 2% and has no directions for amount to use, just says apply as needed.. I know that this is a high dose.. I use to take this a long while back and don't remember the dose I used then.. Can anyone tell me how many mg.'s would I be getting if I used like 1/8 of a teaspoon of the cream?.. that is the smallest measuring spoon I have. I surely do not want to take too much of this.
Also when I had my hormone levels tested (blood tests) My Testosterone level was at 14, does anyone know if this is really low and what are the normal levels for a 46 yr old woman? I had a complete hysterecomy down 12 years ago..
Thanks,

Re: 2 % Testosterone Cream


When I started on 2% testosterone cream <I now use a 1% cream> my instructions were to use .25ml 1x per day for about a month, than go to every other day, than a few times a week, than as needed. .25 is literally a little dab.

You should call your doctor and find out how much the doctor wants you to use. And you can call the pharmacist also. My pharmacist was always very helpful in helping when I had questions. The pharmacist may even be able to give you something to measure with. My pharmacist provided me with an open ended syringe to measure my creams.
