Androgel and the injection are the same hormone . The difference is the androgel gives a steady state even release. The injections peak and then fall off . The effect on your glands in your face is the same may be worse due to higher peak levels initially after the injection. How old are you how low were your levels

ttestosterone normally does decrease with gaining , so with the hormone you are going into some of the less pleasant phases of puberty

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
