Hey, My name is Abraham. I live in Addis Abeba, Ethiopia which is in east Africa. I am 19 and a half years old. I just showed signs of puberty. I only have pubic hair. I don’t have arm pit hair. I have a high voice like a child and overall I look like a child. And people assume that am 7th grader and don’t believe me when i say am freshman at college. I am having a hard time at college, they don’t take me seriously, the professors are making fun of me. I really am in a hard place right now. I get depressed everytime and hate myself. But when i try to talk to doctors here they don’t take me seriously they think am just a spoiled brat.
I think this approach is fine. I must say having been doing this for years, treating hundreds and thousands of men I have been underwhelmed with the results with topicals. Injections can cause peaks and valley and I have many younger men inject twice a week that smooths out the peaks and valleys. I think it is appropriate to follow the advice of your primary doctor and endocrinologist. I have just seen too many men spend months or years with gels with sub optimal results. Many men are diagnosed with depression and are not really depressed (I have no idea if this applies to you), but the presumed depression is base dupon low T.
My recommendation would be to pursue this but if a few months pass and results are modest consider another approach. Pellets are one approach to have smooth levels of T and are placed every 4 months.
