I have been on bio-identical hormones for six months now and have bloodwork done about every 6 weeks to see where my levels are. I use testosterone cream which is rubbed on my inner thigh once a day. My testosterone is only up to 30 and my doctor wants me up to around 65. I've gone from 4mg to 8mg and my levels haven't gone up very much so she's bumping me up to 10mg. For some reason I am not absorbing the testosterone very much. Why is that? I have no side effects ie facial hair, acne from taking the testosterone.
