29 Sep 2013 I just androgel yesterday. I am 45 years old with Low T below 300. My biggest problem is getting a full erecrtion and holding it. Labido had been a problem but seems to be improving as long as I regain confidence. Don't know what it will do for me in the long run. My question is how long did it take most of you before you felt any type of improvment? Days, weeks, months? Also will it cause any shrinkage, testicles or penis? Even after it dries can my family still be exposed?
