Testosterone is needed for a man’s overall health and well-being. Unfortunately, after about age 20 testosterone levels decline. Testim1% promises to treat men with low testosterone levels thus increasing sexual motivation, encouraging lean muscle growth, and decreasing fat mass.
Testim1% is a prescribed testosterone gel. The official website has a “Doctor Discussion Guide” to help you understand your symptoms and know what to discuss with your physician.
Testim1% intrigued me, which led me on a search to learn more. Here’s what I found.
Is Testim1% Safe?
You and your doctor will discuss if Testim1% is right for you. It’s important to make sure your doctor knows all medications you are on before you start using Testim1%. In addition, since it is a controlled substance, remember to store it in a safe location.
There are several safety concerns. The most alarming is the harm it can bring to women and children. The official website gives a detailed description of these harmful effects along with safety precautions.
Some of the most alarming side effects men may experience include blood clots, a higher risk for prostate cancer and low sperm count.
The most common side effects include skin irritation, headaches, increased blood pressure and long lasting erections.
It’s important to contact your doctor if you experience these side effects.
What’s in Testim1%?
Testim1% is a clear topical gel with a variety of ingredients including:
• 1% Testosterone. Testosterone is the male sex hormone. This is the active pharmacological ingredient in Testim1%.
• Pentadecalatone. The apocrine glands in the male armpit produce pentadecalatone. This pheromone is said to attract females.
How Do You Use Testim1%?
Apply Testim1% gel to hairless, clean, dry skin of the upper arms or shoulders. This provides constant testosterone delivery for 24 hours.
Is Testim1% Affordable?
Because it is a prescribed medication, the price is not listed. Contact your doctor to learn more. If your doctor has diagnosed you with low testosterone, insurance may pay for some of Testim1%, making it more affordable.
How Have Consumers Liked Testim1%?
There were several reviews from customers who have used, or are using Testim1%, here are a few:
“I got my sex drive back, stated losing my belly fat and got interested in going to the gym and have added about 30 lbs of lean muscle and I get comments often about how young and muscular I look for a 60 year old man. I feel better than I did when I was 20.”-Jerryf
“The stuff is better than Viagra…increased sex drive, lost 50 lbs, feel and look 20 years younger. In my opinion, ever man should have their testosterone checked after age 40. I know that my wife appreciates my new attitude and performance.” –mpentowski
Although the benefits are numerous, the smell is more than some users can take.
“I’ve been on Testim1% for 3 days. I have no idea if it will increase my T levels or not but the smell is almost too much for me to even care. I think it smells like and old folks home. My kids don’t want to be around me because I smell funny.”- Anonymous.
“I find the smell of this medicine intolerable. If I wanted to wear a fragrance tit certainly wouldn’t be this. I expected little or no odor but instead found that this stuff can’t be washed off completely and the smell can now be found all over my house and continuously is wafting up from my skin and overwhelming my sense of smell. Based on my experience I could now identify any male that is wearing this as it is like waving a banner that says, guess what fragrance I have on today?”-Anonymous.
With every prescribed medication, there are potential side effects. Yet, in my research, most reviews were positive. The only negative ones I found complained of the smell. With its 24 hour testosterone delivery system, Testim1% may be what you need to feel like a real man once again.
