"INJECTION: TESTOSTERONE 100MG ONCE A MONTH FOR 4~6 MONTHS."
I'm a 48yr old male diagnosed over 10yrs ago with hypogonadism (secondary) and for most of that time taking testosterone injections. I'm not a doctor but after you've taken the injections a month or two you should be re-evaluated & retested to see if things have improved. Your muscles should feel stronger and you should have more endurance, headaches may/may not go away as that may be a completely different problem (for example: I also have migraines which didn't get better or worse). Your voice will start lowering (I also sounded female on the phone), you will get more hair almost everywhere except where other males in the family do not (you mentioned father is mostly bare chested so you may continue like that too). You should start feeling more sexual attractions/mental thoughts/urges. Contrary to myths you won't become overly agressive, but you may start asserting yourself and speaking up as you feel better/stronger. The only downside to the injections is that toward the end of your cycle (yours being each month) everything you've felt earlier in the month will go down and you'll start feeling like you used to tired, depressed, weak, loss of attraction/desire. Never fear, when you get your next shot you'll be ok for most of the next month. The doctor may have to adjust your dosage & you may have to take it more frequently (I take smaller dosages every 10 days) so you don't have the up/down cycle to deal with as much. Other than that I have no negative comments about injections which I've learned to give to myself so I'm pretty self-sufficient and had almost no problems/issures. I wish you well.
