What is better? Testosterone Injections or Gels? Nov 6, 2008 I am currently on testosterone enanthate, one injection every two weeks. Is there an actual advantage to using testim, the gel? I have all options available to me. Ed
If you are used to the injections, you may not feel the same "lift" by the gels. The injections cost around $80 a month compared to $1100 a month for Testim or Androgel. Some people argue that gels are better to keep your testosterone blood levels more constant and to avoid "peaks and valleys"
Some people love the daily gels. I am an injection guy since I do not want to deal with daily application.
Some people cannot reach adequate testosterone blood levels (0ver 500 nanograms per deciliter of total testosterone) while using Testim or Androgel since these two only contain 1% testosterone. It is unfortunate that most people and their doctors do not know that you can get better and more concentrated (5%) testosterone gels from compounding pharmacies at around $60 a month. Some of the cheapest ones are apsmeds.com and newrx.com
