My boyfriend had a double orchiectomy and uses lotion to keep his testosterone levels up. Does missing a few days of the lotion cause severe mood swings?

The testosterone gel is associated with significant mood swings as a side effect even with regular use. It is possible that missing a few days can cuase swings in the testosterone level and aggravate this problem.
