Hey everyone. Im 6ft 2, 180lb with ~ 13% bodyfat. Have been working out for 5 years with good diet but with minimal growth.
My trt protocol is:
50mg test e E3.5d
300iu hcg E3.5d
Started 5 months ago
Lab results after 8 weeks:
Testosterone, Free testosterone are in high normal range with shbg report to come in after few days…and very few estrogenic symptoms like itchy nipples sometimes. I got dht tested one day before injection and it was low. 320 ng/dl (300-800) even on trt. This might be due to my saw palmetto use year ago. I dont want to use AI because I don’t feel the use of it and it makes my joints hurt
I lost some fat with good diet on trt that I couldn’t before. Mood and everything is alright but not great. The problem is i still have days with low libido and ED. Muscle wise i also didn’t notice much improvement. Cystic acne on upper body after starting trt. I have a little hair growth on my body and face but nothing too much and hair shedding on my head since i have MPB genes.
I started trt by first doing a 12 weeks 500mg/wk test e cycle with very little gains.Then i started my trt protocol.
The problem is my low DHT. I might still have that dht inhibiting effects which people call as post finasteride syndrome but not that severe.
I think adding low dose proviron to my protocol might help but its tough to get real proviron here. So i am considering a cycle based on dht derived steroids like anadrol, masteron to gain lean mass and to check if they are effective unlike the previous test e cycle given that my dht levels are low.
Week 1-12: Test e 500mg/wk
Week 1-4: Anadrol 50mg
Week 8-12: Masteron 50mg/wk
Any help will be appreciated.
