Hi folks, new to the forum. I have been on HRT for almost 3 years. I am using a coumpounded cream 12.5% 2ml/day. This is a daily dose of 250mg which is alot. Previous testing at the 125mg/day level only got my free test to 10.9(6.8-21.5). The 250mg/day has my free T up to 13.18. Total test is high normal.
I feel good at this level, but I wonder why I am not absorbing as much as expected from such a high dose. I am very lean and apply to the inner thighs. My wife is concerned with transferring to her, as the non absorbed test “goes somewhere”. My doc mentioned that she is noticing better absorption now with compounded gels. Any personal experiences or input would be appreciated.
