Hi Kutastic

I am glad you posted on this forum, and welcome here!

An endocronologist would be the specialist to subscribe hormones to you. It would be good if you first can go to a psychologist, because the endo would like to see a letter by a psychologist who have seen you. If you can tell me in which area, or province you stay, I might be able to make suggestions.

Surely there is male hormones, Testosterone or T as it is called in short available in SA. The two main products used are Sustanon and Depatrone, you can do some read-up work on the internet about both. The most prefed to use is Depatone. If you go to the "who's the expert" section on this forum, you will find my email addy, and you can mail me direct for more info.
