For steroid users who are less than comfortable with needles, transdermal testosterone patches may be the way to go. Two are available by prescription - AndroGel and AndroDerm. These patches were designed to treat hypogonadism and are prescribed for that purpose today. For athletes, gels and patches are a little less than ideal because the body absorbs less of the testosterone than it would be injecting the same amount, although the testosterone stays in the blood for a more stable amount of time.
