Question
My fiancée has decided to start taking testosterone injections (we are currently not living together anymore, but still sexually active with one another, NO idea what kind of injections they are)
I have heard that any testosterone supplimentations should be kept out of contact of women and children, am I at risk of anything being passed into my system from his ejaculate?
I have hormonal problems already, and do NOT need to start being dosed with testosterone.
Thanks :)

Answer
Hi Char,

I am not aware on any danger that Testosterone injections would cause for you unless they are being given to you, but there are numerous side affects here is one site about the side affects http://www.livestrong.com/article/269133-what-are-the-dangers-of-testosterone-in

It does appear to decrease sperm production, so you would have less chance of having a child if that is a concern.
Here is a thorough run down on testosterone thath may help http://www.drugs.com/pro/testosterone.html

Hope this helps

Have a great day
