Week 17 or 18… I have sort of lost track. No negative sides to speak of. I finally feel normal… or optimal. I respond to working out again and am the strongest I have ever been at 39 years old. My sex drive and motivation are through the roof. I have nearly cut all alcohol out of my life… with a high testosterone level feeling great and growing makes me cringe at the thought of downing my usual nightly beers or wine like i did pre trt. I have had several people who have not seen me in the last year or so accuse me of taking something… That is a pretty good confidence boost. I went from 6ft3 220lbs and about 16 percent bodyfat pre-trt ( with a ton of cardio) to 240lbs and 11 percent with no cardio and a not so strict diet.
One new benefit i have noticed is that my skin is much healthier. I have always had dry skin and in the fall or winter suffered from season eczema. It would dry out from the cold weather and become a pain. My skin so fat has been perfect and somewhat oily… Also my hair now grows insanely fast. I need a haircut once a week or it starts to get too thick.
