The Best Areas to do Intramuscular Self-Inject of Testosterone (IM)


Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on November 9th, 2021

Preventing Infertility and Testicular Shrinkage with HCG Injections


Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on November 9th, 2021

testicle shrinkage varicocele disease 300x199Preventing Testicular Shrinkage with HCG (For Men Undergoing Testosterone Replacement Therapy for Low-T) One of the most embarrassing and frustrating issues associated with either aging in men or testosterone restoration for men is testicular atrophy.

Some studies have … Read more »

The critical factor may be testosterone, the male hormone that has been associated with a man's healthy, good looks. According to a study published in the journal … Read more »
