Androgel questions for women. Anyone?
I have just started taking 1 pump 4 pumps is equal to 5 mg of androgel. I am a 45yr old mother of 5. I mention the 5 kids because it's hard keeping up with kids ages with the extra weight. Does anyone have any experience either theirs or a friend's you could share with me? I am a newbie here. I had 4 facet injections in my back joints and 2 depo-medrol cortisone last summer and they put 40lbs on. I was a size 4 and have slowly crawled up to a size My eating habits have always been.

Page 1 of 2 1 2 Last Jump to page: Results 1 to 10 of My eating habits have always been high protein, low carbs She told me I might benefit from androgel daily to strengthen my back.
She said she has prescribed it to women for low-libido, but I would be her first to prescribe it based on it's bone-density benefits. She wants me to try it for 12 weeks and see if it helps both with back strength and weight loss. I also started a walking, cardio and some weights using my Nautilus gym at home so no free weights that she has recommended. I don't want to put weight on, but I can't find anything on the internet except "females shouldn't take androgel".
I'm going to try her advice, so that doesn't help. I was surprised I couldn't find anyone's experience just internet searching. I want someone's honest opinion, experience or advice and hope to find it here. I was hoping for something???? This is my second day on it and I amazed at the difference in my sweat. I walked 8 miles this morning and my daughter wouldn't even go near me. I know walking 8 miles is nothing compared to some of you other ladies pics here Possibly try and move the post to the steriod discussion forum or another one where men are more apt to read.
Some of the guys in this forum give great advice. Are you pre or post menopausal? Okay, here's the thing The increased muscle mass can help you burn OFF the fat eventually but losing weight while you're actually using the gel might be tough. To start with, you're probably going to find you're unusually hungry, particularly if you step up your resitance training.
If your goal is to feel better, be stronger, have strength to hold your spine sturdy, then don't focus on the short term, think big picture. Also, be aware there's a break in when you start taking the androgen supplement regularly, just an FYI, your mood can flash over instantly and you can become very short tempered.
It's nothing you can't live with Your voice may get lower. Is that a side effect that's going to bother you? I'd say use Nizoral, that seems to be the best help, if you think hair loss may be a problem, you should be able to get your doc to write you a script for the prescription strength Nizoral blanking on the name currently.
Quality of life is what matters most and I have NO regrets about cycling test periodically. I can function whereas I think conventional medicine would have had me in a wheelchair on pain killers by now. No, I don't have the body I'd like but it's a body that works, and a body that is strong. I can lift, I can bend, sometimes just being able to tie your own shoes is worth something, you know? That should cover the basics, and welcome to the board!!!

Tatyana, Good stuff, my wife is a little girl very thin built and I had the hardest time getting to to realize Cardio wont change body comp.
Thirteen years ago, around the time Judith Reichman, M. My GYN knew nothing about it, but she had faith in Judith and gave me the script. I've been using it ever since, a little dab, on inside of labia, at bedtime. Okay, here are the positive results I've found: No mood swings No periods of depression Steady and good libido means I never say "I have a headache, Dear" to my man Clitoris enlarged, but being postmenopausal and things shrinking, that's a good thing Don't have vaginal atrophy or dryness Have a lot of energy and strength at my age, that's saying an awful lot No joint pains Bone Density Tests always good Negative results: Some other doctors freak and tell me testo has bad side effects.
Only side effect they can come up with is I have the same risk of heart attack as men do. Big deal -- most women have the same risk factor because they are working outside the home, competing and just as stressed as men. One thing that really gets me angry in forums is men saying they wouldn't have sex with a woman who has a clit that looks like a penis. Well, there's no reason for a woman to have one that big.
If she does, she's definitely overdosing on her testo. I have always been very careful about the amount used and mine is a normal good size. I don't have acne. I don't have male pattern baldness -- in fact my hair is quite thick.
I don't have excess hair in places I don't want any. I would like to try Androgel, but feel I don't want to mess with success. I'd have to learn all over again as to how much my body needs to remain where it's at now. Of course, it would be nice not to have to depend on compounding, but I've used the same pharmacy all these years and I get partial reimbursement from insurance company. I am curious about where women who use Androgel apply it.
I was given strict instructions not to apply testo to breasts and I understand Androgel is applied to upper body. To sum it up, I feel pretty good about myself The largest bodybuilding archive in the world! Similar Threads androgel for women? All times are GMT The time now is
