The Day I Started Testosterone

I signed the Informed Consent papers, went over my lab results, and then they called the prescription to the pharmacy downstairs.

After I picked the medicine up up, they showed me how to self inject it sub-q and I did it in my stomach. It didn’t hurt at all! Though it took forever to push it all in and I had to stare at something besides the needle so I didn’t get dizzy. Then it was done and I felt like a rockstar.


The little bottle says 1 mL and 200 mg. And I’m supposed to inject 0.3 mL weekly, which is 60mg.
