Still dealing with random nodules/cysts and don’t know if I’m headed in the right direction or not. Here’s the basic timeline of my TRT journey.
February - start trt at 150mg per week. No sides
May - doctor increase to 200mg per week (EOD 57mg). Still no sides.
Sept 24th - add 250ui EOD hcg for possible benefits (sensitivity, libido, well being, etc). Skin oily, acne starting, extreme fatigue, low worth feeling. horrible experience.
Oct 1st - doctor has me quit hcg since it’s been extremely negative for me. So only used it for a week. Has me up dose of T instead to 225mg per week (64mg eod)
Oct 16th - 2 weeks gone by and still dealing with bad acne, doctor lowers dose to 210mg (60mg eod).
Well it’s been 5 weeks now at that dose and the acne is still bad. It’s not extreme but its enough to make me want to stay inside. Doesnt look good as a 31 year old with cysts on your neck and jawline. I say I have 1 or 2 cysts on my arm, back, and neck/jawline at a time. Ive been using 10% benzoyl peroxide wash since I started seeing acne show up and a couple days ago I added every vitamin that should help with acne. (Vit A, Vit E, B5, zinc, Vit C, etc).
At first I figured it was because of my hormones fluctuating but after being on this dose for 5 weeks I feel I should be pretty leveled out by now. Just kind of lost at what to do at this point. Do I keep riding it out and hope these vitamins help? Do I just go back to 200mg at this point? I just find it weird I went from 150mg to 200mg no problem but now after being on 210mg for a bit I’m still dealing with issues.
