For those on daily injections:
- Where do you normally inject?
- Do you find a difference between SubQ vs.Intramuscular injections in how you feel?
- Has anyone on daily injections tried the daily compounded T-cream for a like-for-like comparison of effect (energy, muscle gain, libido, etc.).
I’m 43 and been on TRT for the last 1.5 years (testosterone only, nothing else) under the care of an Endo at 100-120mg/week (bi-weekly injections), and had decent energy and lots of muscle gain with perfect lab numbers but zero libido (literally zero). I’m very healthy and lean otherwise (ex-athlete), self-inject my TRT intramuscular, and moved to daily injections from bi-weekly about 4 weeks ago and found a huge difference in energy, reduced bloating, better mood, etc. and am hoping my libido comes around at some point. I have 200mg/week of test prescribed to me so can go anywhere within the range but figured I’d stay at 100-120mg/week before trying a higher dose (on daily injections).
My last question above on the compounded T-cream relates to some positive feedback I’ve read around the net about increased libido (for those that can absorb it) from the DHT boost. Daily injections compared to daily cream application would control for dosing frequency, which as many are finding can make a big difference. This is versus those who are on weekly/bi-weekly injections and switch to daily cream application and see a benefit, but theoretically don’t know if its just the daily dosing that did the trick instead of the different transmission mechanism (topical cream vs. intra-muscular injection).
