Testosterone level

Hello, I do get erect but it's not lasting for long. Not more than 5 mins. Also I do not have no hairs on my chest and not much and even facial hairs . But pubic hairs are fine.. please let me know if it's related to low testosterone . If so , please suggest a way to improve its level.

Hi there...there are numerous causes for decreased level, it may be due to trauma to the testis, infections,obesity,kidney diseases,liver diseases,certain medications mainly pain medications derived from opioids,people suffering from sickle cell disease or thalassemia can also have this,people taking glucocorticoids can also have this,other hormones in the body with abnormal levels can also impact on testosterone levels,chronic alcoholism is also one of the cause...so before starting on testosterone directly,so the underlying cause should be treated...which will be more beneficial than simply taking the supplements.
