hair loss

  1. T

    Wanting to return to TRT but fearful of hair thinning again.

    I began taking Testosterone Cypionate 200 mg/ml-5ml Vial several years ago but quit due to hair thinning. It worked extremely well and I hated to stop; however, my testosterone level now has dropped to 201 (total). I need to increase my testosterone. Is there a safer way to increase it.
