Question: I have been receiving testosterone therapy for approximately 8 months. I receive 250ml of testosterone enanthate, once a week. The effects of the testosterone have not been that powerful, I feel a little more youthful, and have not noticed much else. I have not experienced any negative side effects. I would like to discontinue the therapy for a few months, mostly due to convenience. My question is, is it safe to simply stop or do I need to take something else once I stop to boost my natural testosterone production?

Brief Answer:
Yes, it is safe to stop.

Detailed Answer:
I have gone through your question.

The testosterone replacement therapy or the Testosterone are used in men and boys to treat conditions caused by a lack of this hormone.

It is not vital. So, if you decide to discontinue the testosterone therapy, you can do it without problems.

Here are some simple tips that can help you to increase naturally your T level.
- Lose Weight (if you are overweight or obese)
- Limit or Eliminate Sugar from Your Diet.
- Eat Healthy Fats
- Reduce Stress.
- High-Intensity Exercise like Peak Fitness and Strength Training.
- Consume Plenty of Zinc containing foods
- Optimize Your Vitamin D Levels.

Hope this is helpful. Feel free to ask further.
