A specialist drug store (pharmacy) near me sells testosterone testing kits. i assume that the "kit" is just something to draw blood and a form to send the sample off to a lab somewhere for testing. I can't remember how much they were but I think under US $100.

I had a pituitary problem that causes a drop in testosterone levels and only a random blood screening uncovered this. The solution then was fortnightly injections in my butt. 30 mins after the first injection I was walking home thinking about the diapers I neede to buy for my kid. I was vaguely aware that I was "bouncing" on my feet a little more than usual, inhabiting my body in a more physical manner. A young woman walking slowly towards me stared in my eyes, smiled, looked down up and gave me "the look" and walked by. I was astounded. As a married, conservative father this hasn't happen to me in nearly 20 years.

The injections were helpful and painful. The positive was that I gained energy, optimism, did more exercise, lost a lot of fat and replaced it with muscle and felt fitter than I had in ten years. I didn't get the roid rage that people describe, but did get excessive sexual urges that were a nuisance. Overall very positive and I believe that, in eth US at least, there is as much misinformation about hormones as there about ADHD meds.
