Labs will help us help you, once weekly protocols while they work for some, there is room for improvement. Your levels will be fluctuating for the next 6 weeks, there will be bad days and good days. This will happen to those just starting TRT or those who are trying out a new TRT protocol as it takes 6 weeks to levels to become stable everytime the dosage is changed.
TRT isn’t going to work overnight, tissue must be repaired and this process is measured in months, 6-12 months when TRT is done right.
Usually when T is injected it takes 24-48 hours for testosterone to peak (1-2 days), then start to decline and everyone’s rate of decline is different. Once weekly protocols can cause your levels to swing, I could feel my levels swinging injecting T every 3.5 days and didn’t start responding to TRT until I started injecting every 2 days.
There are some guys who can inject once weekly and feel fine, it’s going to be different for everyone. I’m not a fan of starting out on TRT, HCG and an AI as there are too many moving parts to analyze, you don’t know what’s doing what. Add to that a lot of guys just don’t tolerate HCG well.
Chose a dosage and stick with it or you may never reach a stable state if you keep changing your dosages.
