Talking to your doctor
If you complete the online symptom checker you can print out your results and bring them to your doctor appointment. This can help make the conversation easier, as it’s only natural that you may feel a little awkward talking about your sexual problems with someone else.

“I’ve heard a lot about the consequences of low testosterone and think I may be affected - can we talk about it?”
You can then tell your doctor that you have completed the ADAM questionnaire
online and show the results you printed out.
