Thanks for writing to us.
As your hormone levels are normal including total, free Testosterone, estrogen etc., you need not worry about your scanty facial hair. When your father and younger brother are normal, there may still be the possibility of hereditary role with you. Your maternal side influence may be there with your genes or from some other fore parents genetic predispositions may have the influence. Nothing to worry.

If you still worry about the same, then you XXXXXXX an endocrinologist and have a check up with LH hormone which is pituitary hormone having the influence over your testis and the production of Testosterone. With his advice you can have the hormones. It will help you.

Good luck to you.

Hello, I am 25 years old and have recently discovered that I have Beta Thalassemia Minor. For the past year I find that I cannot sustain my erection during the length of the intercourse. I never seemed to have any problems before this. A recent test of Free and Total testosterone showed that I was borderline. Is there anything I could do to improve my situation?

After I inject myself with a 1ml dose of testosterone in my right cheek (glut?) the whole muscle group it was given in gets very sore for at least two weeks. It does not ache, just very sore to the touch. This is my second time to do this and the results are the same. Is this normal? A problem? Did not happen while I was going in for the shots.
