Holy crap!!!! My suggestion is Sue Hudson. She is a retired geneticist who became a nurse midwife, but she has her own practice(think it is called well spring or something like that)and delivers in hospitals. Insanely smart lady who does women's gyn/ well women care issues in addition to midwife/baby stuff. She diagnosed my borderline celiacs when everyone else told me I was mental and never batted an eyelash when I told her I did not do dairy as it did not agree with me. LOVE HER!!!!! She will totally help you. Google her or find her on Facebook! She does not except defeat and will work with you until you resolve your issues. Holly formerly from Uniontown, Ohio

I'm really surprised by that. I thought the role of testosterone in HRT was pretty well known. Why wont your doctors prescribe it for you?
Do you take any other hormones? Lots of HRT pills contain testosterone as well as oestrogen and progesterone (eg. tibolone), could you get that prescribed instead?
There's also a testosterone implant, it lasts 6 months

Once a month isn't a huge deal, but I would think you would be risking more side effects with that kind of dosing schedule. The most common testosterone esters have, at most, a half life of ~12 days, so after 30 days with no injection you're only going to have 15-20% of it left in your blood. There is one ester that a few labs make that has a half life of ~19 days, so maybe that's what they're giving you, but even then you'd still only have ~1/3rd the amount in your blood at the end of the month. But I guess if it's working then it's not worth worry about it.
As far as finding a doctor, you'll just have to call around and ask. Find one who would be willing to continue giving you the same prescription your previous doctor, then have your previous doctor fax over some kind of documentation about it with his signature. That's pretty much the only legal option there is, afaik.
