Testosterone Cream, 30mL
Testosterone is the primary androgen in the body that controls growth, development, and function of male sexual organs and characteristics. This is a controlled medication, commonly prescribed for the treatment of low testosterone levels in males (hypogonadism) who do not produce enough natural testosterone. It can also be prescribed in specific adolescent cases to induce puberty in those who are experiencing a delay.
Men frequently experience declines in testosterone levels that correlate with the hormonal changes that women experience at menopause, however, men typically have a slower and more subtle hormonal decline, and develop symptoms over a period of time. When hormones are replaced or restored back to physiologic levels considered normal for younger males, men may experience a dramatic reversal of many of these changes.
In clinical trials, Testosterone Replacement Therapy (TRT) has produced
- Improvement in psychological well-being and mood.
- Improvement in erectile dysfunction and libido.
- Increased muscle mass, strength, and stature.
- Preservation of bone mass.
Testosterone therapy may not only treat hypogonadism, but may also have tremendous potential to slow or halt the progression from metabolic lsyndrome to overt diabetes or cardiovascular disease via beneficial effects on insulin regulation, lipid profile, and blood pressure.
Natural testosterone must not be confused with synthetic derivatives or "anabolic steroids," which when used by athletes and body builders can cause disastrous effects. Hormone balancing for men may also include HCG, DHEA, and other supplements as well as aromatase inhibitors such as anastrozole and selective estrogen receptor modulators such as tamoxifen and clomiphene.
Cream is applied topically to the skin for transdermal absorption.

Topical Hormones: Gels and Creams
Topical hormones come in a variety of dispensing devices. The most common devices include a pump, large syringe, Topi-Click, and single dose packets. When dispensing your hormone gel/cream it is important to understand how much you are supposed to apply.
Here is a breakdown of how standard dispensing devices measure:
Pump: 4 pumps = 1 ml
Topi-Click: 4 clicks = 1 ml
Syringe: Syringes are typically measured in increments so you can measure the amount you dispense by pushing the plunger 1ml. Syringes designed to dispense topical hormones do not require a needle, the cream is dispensed through a nipple at the bottom of the syringe. The syringe plunger is pushed down to dispense the cream in measured doses. Syringes typically have lines marking 1ml measurements and come in various sizes to accommodate dosage amounts. If you need assistance reading the measurements on the syringe contact Defy Medical.
How to convert your hormone strength from % to milligrams.
Sometimes pharmacists prefer to note the strength of the hormone cream in percentages rather than milligrams (mg). For example, it may be written on the label: Testosterone 10% gel 30ML. This is simply a different way of writing the strength. Here is how it works:
To convert the % into milligrams simply move the decimal to the right one time.
5% = 50 mg
10% = 100 mg
20% = 200 mg
Using testosterone 10% gel 30 ML as an example, we can interpret this to mean “testosterone 100 milligrams (mg) per milliliter (ml). There are 30 ml in the order which means you have thirty 100 mg doses. If you are prescribed to “apply ½ ml every day” this means you are applying 50 mg and your 30 ml supply will last 60 days. Remember, the cream is 100 mg per ml and you are applying ½ ml (50 mg). Contact Defy Medical staff if you need clarification on your dosage instructions.
Store your topical hormones at room temperature. Keep in the original closed container in a dark, cool, and dry place away from children. Discard unneeded medicine.
Be sure to follow the dosage prescribed by your doctor located on the medication label.
