Can I start my treatment with testosterone injections?

We advise that patients do not start masculinising treatment with injectable testosterone and instead begin with testosterone gel for at least three months to minimise potential side effects and allow a more gradual adjustment to treatment. There can be exceptions to this with good reason (i.e. frequent contact with young children; sensory issues) and approval from the medical team. If you can explain why you would like to start on injections, we can add this information to your case for the Medical Team to review.
