    Hi Phil,
    You could be right about your Testosterone levels, but you won't know until you get them done.

    The one's you need to do are,

    Free testosterone

    Total testosterone

    FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone)

    LH (Leautaizing Hormone)


    SHBG (Sex Hormone Binding Globulin)

    and while your at it you should have this one done as well,

    P.S.A. (Prostate Specific Antigen)

    I know that you may have fun with the NHS, but at least you have the GEL over there if needed.

    Here are a couple of good UK sites,

    Nicks and also if you have the time to do some reading look at this forum,
    The AndroScreen Information Center Forum .
    Hope this helps.
