how to apply AndroForteAndroForte is a testosterone replacement therapy used to manage and control fluctuating testosterone levels and low testosterone levels. It works alongside your body’s natural testosterone production when your body does not produce enough testosterone. If you apply AndroForte daily you can experience higher testosterone levels. It is specifically designed for men. If you are a woman you can use the female equivalent – AndroFeme.

What is AndroForte?
AndroForte is a bioidentical topical testosterone cream. Bioidentical means that the testosterone is identical to the natural testosterone in your body. The fact that it is the same means the body is less likely to reject it. Testosterone, the male sex hormones, is needed for sexual and reproductive development and sexual function. Male characteristics like hair growth, muscle mass, fat distribution and sex drive depends on it. When you have low testosterone you need to supplement with a testosterone therapy like AndroForte and apply AndroForte daily to achieve hormone balance and good sexual function.

How to apply AndroForte?
The standard recommended dose is 1ml daily. It is best to apply the cream in the morning. If you need to adjust the dosage to a higher dose then this can be done after your body has adjusted to the treatment. Likewise, if you start suffering side effects and need to reduce your dosage. While using AndroForte you should have regular hormone blood testing done and symptomatic checks to make sure you are getting the best possible results from using testosterone replacement therapy.

How to measure the correct dose – Each tube of AndroForte comes with a dosage syringe applicator. The applicator is marked with dosage levels so it is easy for you to adjust the dosage needed. The marking are in 0.5ml increments. Open the tube, hold upside down and gently squeeze the bottom of the tube so you can see the cream arriving at the nozzle of the tube top. Insert the tip of the syringe end into the nozzle of the tube opening and gently squeeze the bottom of the tube and withdraw the plunger so the cream slowly flows out, up the syringe and into the applicator barrel. When you reach the required dosage marking stop squeezing and withdraw the syringe from the tube opening. If you notice some bubbles in the applicator barrel, then add a tiny bit more to compensate. If there are many bubbles or the syringe did not fill up properly then extra the cream and start the process again to ensure you get the correct measured dose.

When you have the correct dose in the applicator depress the plunger onto the application site and massage the cream into the skin until it is fully absorbed. Replace the cap firmly on the tube and wash your hand with soap and water to avoid transference to other parts of the body or to someone else.

Where to apply AndroForte? – AndroForte is applied directly to the scrotal area for fast results and optimal absorption. This is the recommended application site. If you are unable to do this, then you can apply the cream to the upper torso.

How often to apply AndroForte? – AndroForte testosterone replacement therapy should be applied daily, in the morning. It should be applied at the same time each day. You should continue using AndroForte daily as it substitutes for the testosterone that your body is not producing. Using it sporadically will cause hormonal imbalance and unstable testosterone levels. Using it for a short period of time will help increase your testosterone levels but when you stop using it your testosterone levels will drop again. It is a top up therapy, not a cure for low testosterone.

Apply AndroForte – Help, I missed a dose!
If you miss a dose, then apply it as soon as you remember. Do not take a double dose. If you miss a dose until the next time of application, then just apply the next application like normal. Just one dose, never double dose. If you apply too much AndroForte immediately wash the site of application thoroughly with soap and water. You should also contact your doctor immediately or your local poisons information centre in case of overdose side effects
