Dr. Crisler states that it takes 5-6 weeks to get steady levels when dosing once per week. I don’t know if dosing more frequently shortens this time span?
Regardless, I will wait 5 weeks. I am wondering about the trough that I could be getting right before my next injection. I felt blah yesterday (injection day) and now about 33 hours after the injection I am feeling better.
I realize that I will likely need HCG in the future, but DAMN I had a BAD reaction to novarel.
Let’s see where T cyp alone puts my T and E levels. [/quote]
When people start HCG is stimulate your metabolize through increasing thyroid out put. When you took HCG you stimulate the arenals (which were low) and then the thyroid. The excessive metabolism from the testosteorne and thyroid was too much for adrenals to handle which resulted in the anxiety you were feeling which is common with people with hyperthyroidism.
Now does this make sense to why you responded badly to HCG? It over stimulate you metabolism from 2 different pathways that adrenals were unable to support. So may be in your case HCG may not be applied right away until you let the adrenals heal.
