How in the hell are you self medicating. Do you live someplace that you can buy test cyp over the counter?
I'm surprised that nobody has suggested that you are nuts or about to be nutless and breasted if you keep this up. I guess I can understand your thought process since the medical community regularly prescribes Androgel by itself.
I am by no means an expert but I do understand several aspects of this that someone should point out to you. Maybe you already you know all this so excuse me if you do but I think it is worth mentioning in case someone else is reading this. I owe it to this site since it was here that I became much more educated regarding TRT
- I do not believe you can just add a little testosterone to your system. When you add testosterone your body stops producing it. That is why they refer to it as testosterone replacement therapy and not testosterone supplement therapy.
- I believe you can and should force your body to continue to produce some testosterone from your nuts so they donâ??t atrophy. This is done by injecting HCG (human chorionic gonadotropin). Iâ??m not sure just how much of your own testosterone you produce on HCG but I believe it is not significant relative to amount you are adding with the injections or topical gel or cream. Iâ??m also not sure how much of your own you will produce if you stop adding testosterone especially if you let your nuts atrophy. I know mine started to shrivel up on 100mg/week after about 4 months.
- I think it is inevitable that youâ??re E2 level will increase with out an aromatize inhibitor (AI) and you will experience mussel cramps, low energy, poor sexual function as well as a number of other symptoms. I think it took about 2 to 3 months for me before I started to get mussel cramps. And if you think your nipples are sensitive now, just wait till they start bouncing up and down because you are now a b cup, and that is not reversible with out surgery.
- Laboratory blood testing is critical if you are going to continue. I read the posts from the guys on cycles and they are absolutely just guessing at what to take and how much. I would love to see what some of there blood work looks like before during and after a cycle. Even with the blood work itâ??s not easy to keep every thing where it should be.
Just adding testosterone sounded like a good idea to me last year at this time. I got my doctor to prescribe blood work (no free T and no E2) and then prescribe androgel. I felt better for about 2 months and then things flattened off. After about 3 months I started reading this forum and was amazed at how much more I needed to understand. I also was amazed that my doctor did not understand all of this but was prescribing Androgel ($450/month) to several of her patients. I have even seen commercials for â??Low Tâ?? which Iâ??m sure is a marketing campaign by the makers of Androgel.
Well enough rambling from me (this is what happens when I work nights).
