DragonRider (and Dr. Scally above): DHT levels were not tested as my endo would not authorize.

I understand it can be expensive, but this is your health. You only have one body. You are worth it.
Women spend more on boob jobs and make up than we are wiiling to spend on our own health and we can't screw without it.
As for reacting to the perceived causes and symptoms, all I can state is that, prior to the Androgel application, I had no issues with MPB. I'm hopeful that injections will lessen the conversion of T to DHT. I realize this is far from a guarantee, but elevated DHT levels seem to occur frequently on the gels (I'm basing this off anecdotal reports from other TRT sites).
