I’m just shy of age 71. I’ve always had a high sex drive, still do. I’ve only had two T tests, three years ago, 260, recently, 290. I don’t know if that was normal variation, or due to progesterone cream applications over the last few years. My Medicare insurer turned down a prescription the urologist wanted for Androgel. To help with weight loss. Despite those T numbers, I’m still randy as hell, and despite my alcohol consumption, my balls are still huge per internet sources. And many lovers over the years. (The urologist didn’t say anything was wrong.) The other morning I woke up with wood, walked out to the patio, and urinated a strong stream with a dick curving heavenward.
Measuring testosterone is complicated, because the tests themselves aren't always reliable, and results can differ from one lab to the next. "Normal" levels can also vary dramatically from one man to the next. And they can vary from minute to minute in the same man; testicles seem to do everything in spurts. That's because testosterone levels fluctuate with the little wins and losses of daily life. So if a test suggests that you have a testosterone problem, do not despair: There's a one-in-three chance you'll be back to normal on a follow-up.
