Basically I started at 200/2week which I split into 100mg/week and eventually 50mg 2 times a week. That was not enough to put me into the upper normal. So the endo increased me to 300mg/2 weeks which I took as 150mg/week for a while then tried at 75mg 2 times per week. That barely put me out of the normal range 2 days after injection. But, during that time I was feeling great and making great progress in the gym. However, I was having probs with erections.
One thing I have personally learned is that the 100mg and 150mg shots definitely make the erection probs go away for me. I dont know why, its the same total dose of medicine!? 50mgX2/week doesnt work as well. The only prob with 100mg/week is that I break out and feel lethargic by the end of the week. With the 150mg/week or 75mgX2/week, I felt much better as far as energy.
So with 200mg, I have a feeling I'm going to have some serious wood and potential gains in the gym, but probably more acne towards the end of the week like with the 150mg.
I'm on synthroid 100mcg for thyroid and have a 2.0 TSH, 3.3 T3, and a 1.1 T4
As far as the LH his reasoning was to monitor LH to determine whether atrophy is occuring and to adjust the dosage accordingly. He believes the T levels should be normal from shot to shot but with T levels going high norm to mid norm. As far as estrogen, he explain to me that the body is going to metabolize/aromatize what it feels it should to keep the testosterone where it thinks it should be. After 8 weeks he's going to do a complete blood panel. What shocked me is he said that was nothing I could do about the estrogen lol. I'm thinking he feels that his method does not require it, same for HCG. In my case though, as long as I dont grow bitch tits, I'm happy. I'm done having kids and for some reason even when I was on 150mg I was still shooting massive loads and 1.5 years after starting TRT I still have normal testicular volume per my PCM. They do seem the same size.
This new doctor also thinks I may have been deficient most of my life based on how I described my past. He says he has had people get taller in their thities after doing 200mg/week for 8 weeks. I was like WTF? As a regional urologist he said he sees 50 new patients a month on top of his returners. And has had 100's on TRT now. I don't know why but something inside me says just try the 8 weeks, at the very least it'll be a small 8 week cycle LOL, and if the levels are high I will get it lowered some.
