Important: Be sure to check the label before you buy to make sure you are getting a testosterone product which is "therapeutic". A "therapeutic" product means a hormone which can be used by men for "therapeutic purposes". Therapeutic uses of hormones include: To treat and prevent diseases or conditions such as cancer, infertility, testicular cancer, prostate cancer and other conditions, to improve your sex drive and mood, or to help men who have difficulty having or maintaining a sexual relationship to have sex more easily. This does not mean that you will need a hormone in order to get or maintain a sexual relationship. However, the hormones in a testosterone product should be used by a man for a long time, and may have side effects and should not be taken by men who have been diagnosed with certain medical conditions. There are many testosterone products available, some of which are prescription, some are over the counter. There are some products that are also sold in stores, and some which are available online. Some testosterone products are prescribed for men who have prostate cancer, a disease that is very difficult to treat without testosterone. Some of the products may even contain other medicines.
