User avatar Why did you suspect having a low testosterone level? Did you get investigated. If you a low level was indeed established by investigation then it depends on the cause.

Testosterone deficiency may result from disease or damage to the hypothalamus, pituitary gland, or testicles that inhibits hormone secretion and testosterone production, and is also known as hypogonadism. Depending on age, insufficient testosterone production can lead to abnormalities in muscle and bone development, underdeveloped genitalia, and diminished virility.
