It comes as a skin patch that is applied to the skin and changed every evening. The testosterone in the patch is absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream.
Are There Side Effects?Just like any medicine, the testosterone patch may cause side effects. However, not everyone who uses the patch will experience problems. In fact, most people tolerate it quite well.
