A very interesting article.
I have just been prescribed 4 weeks worth of Testogel due to me losing my ability to climax since about February 2020. Have been applying it for 6 days now so it’s probably a bit early to notice any changes 🤞🤞

Using a mirena coil for testosterone, have it replaced a couple of times already. Due to be replaced again now after 4 years for HRT, aware however that you can use it for 5 years as a contraceptive. Is it urgent to have it changed during COVID-19 or wondering if it can wait a while yet? Any opinions/experience of this greatly appreciated, thanks
