Male with no facial hair and younger looks for testosterone supplement

Resolved Question:

Hi my name is Steven, I am from Nepal. Now i am currently living in Oakland, CA. My question is about male hormones and testosterone. Now i am 20 years old but i look like a 14,15 year old kid. I am so skinny and I have no facial hair at all. My everything looks just like girls arms, legs, face etc.. It has been a huge problem since i was 16. I feels like i didn't even hit the puberty yet. My friends became older and bigger but i stay the same. Now i lost contact with all of my friends because of my looks.. It really affects my self confidence and my social life. People treat me as a child not an adult. I am so weak, i usually get tired so fast and my bones are small but i am pretty tall (5'11). I really try lots of different things. I went to gym, i took protein shakes but it didn't worked out well. I don't drink, I don't smoke i sleep a lot and eat normal. Well looking younger is almost normal for asians but for my country it is so rare. Our country and culture is different if you are a guy, you should look like a guy and act like a guy. It is so hard for me. I have no chance on girls on my age. However my parents were both athletes and they grew up normal. I became depressed because of this problems, i get mat at myself. So i did some research about it and find out maybe my testosterone level is low or my body does not producing enough male hormones. I didn't gave blood test to check my testosterone level but i am sure it is lower than normal. One good thing is my sex drive is fine. And i found out there are testosterone boosters and lots of stuff for synthetic growth hormone. I read lots of articles, reviews, and conversations. I found out there are only few legal testosterone boosters one the marked like TestX180. But this stuff is for working out that kind of stuff. If this TestX180 is promising and trusted i am thinking about going to gym again. I read lots of conversations about this and i decided to ask doctor. Please help me this problem is just killing my life. I have waited and suffered long enough. I am really tired of looking young. Should i take testosterone booster? If yes could you recommend some trusted and good supplement? Or is there any other ways?

Hi,
From your description, I can understand that you are very disturbed by your constitution. You feel that you are less masculine because of low levels of testosterone.
Firstly, I can see that your growth is normal for your age.
Since your sex drive is fine, most likely your testosterone levels also must be fine. Some boys have hardly any facial or body hair as their skin is not very sensitive to testosterone. As regards your sexual maturation as per your age, you need to see if you have developed normal pubic hair, testes size and penile length. and if you get normal erections and ejaculations, I dont think you need to worry about sex hormones. Please dont take hormone supplements, they affect your testes adversely and can make you infertile and you may also develop breast tissue like women. You should do adequate physical exercise and eat healthy food. you can take vitamins and protein supplements if you feel like. Build up confidence by acquiring good qualifications, becoming a good sportsman and having healthy hobbies. if you get tired easily, check your hemoglobin, thyroid and sugars. Also, if you want to feel relieved, you can get your testosterone levels tested, give samples around 8 AM in the morning.

Dear John,

The contents of this product are mostly herbal and are likely to be safe, although it is difficult to comment on what actually is in there, esp. that related to chinese and Tibetan medicine. Rest is vitamin supplements which is safe.

Please feel free to discuss further.

Regards


Patient replied :

My name is not John hehe. So as long as it is pretty safe, this product is worth a shot right? I am not waiting any results but i just want to try it just in case. I saw some video reviews of this product and some of them said this has little side effects like headache and stuff. But some of them said it works well. So yeah i just want to try it, if it is safe. What is your advice?


Expert:  Dr. J Muthukrishnan replied 2 Days.

My bad.
Dear Steven,

Yes it appears safe. All the ingredients are herbal, in addition to the Vitamins in it. So it is not likely to have any side effects and you can give it a try.
