Wow! I'm thinking your byoerifnd might not want you to get this fixed! I was actually getting ready to make a similar type appointment to check my hormone levels. I think I have the opposite problem of you in that I lack testosterone. I am actually looking forward to finding out. I would be interested to know what happens from here on out for you. I hope you get everything figured out!
