I have been given Testim 50mg gel testosterone cream from my Gyno, due to bladder tiredness and menopausal symptoms. Does anyone have any experience with this. She said it would by pass thyroid due to being put on the skin, ie by passing the liver. Yet it says not to be used by women????? I am very skeptical, any feed back would be appreciated. It does say that it can alter the levels of thyroid hormones in the body but that the thyroid function is not affected by these monor changes in levels of thyroid hormones. Very confused.
