One of the biggest concerns many people have is how to find a doctor that will prescribe testosterone treatment that will work. Most general practitioners have little to no training in this area and feel uncomfortable prescribing testosterone injections or creams to their patients. A doctor that has specific training in hormone replacement therapy is the best person to determine the course of action that will work to restore the body’s testosterone levels safely and effectively. At Kingsberg Medical, our doctors are specialists in this field and work with both men and women across the US to bring balance and rejuvenation back into their lives. You can put your trust in our highly trained medical team to guide you in the right direction.

Transdermal patches (adhesive patches placed on the skin) may also be used to deliver a steady dose through the skin and into the bloodstream. Testosterone-containing creams and gels that are applied daily to the skin are also available, but absorption is inefficient (roughly 10%, varying between individuals) and these treatments tend to be more expensive. Individuals who are especially physically active and/or bathe often may not be good candidates, since the medication can be washed off and may take up to six hours to be fully absorbed. There is also the risk that an intimate partner or child may come in contact with the application site and inadvertently dose himself or herself; children and women are highly sensitive to testosterone and can suffer unintended masculinization and health effects, even from small doses. Injection is the most common method used by individuals administering AAS for non-medical purposes.
