First Labs After Starting TRT, Increase Dosage?

Protocol is 100mg every week. I got tested the morning before my next injection and my total testosterone is 640. My E2 was also well in normal range. No ball shrinkage as of yet. Should I stick with this dosage since I can assume that after my injection, I am in the upper range? Or shold I request to go up to 125mg/week to get my valley numbers up in to the 700’s? Thanks for your help and input.

Yes, your labs should be higher, but doc may not see it that way.

  • how long on TRT?
  • what has changed for the better, worse, got better then worse?

I was on Clomid originally for 8 months because I was trying to conceive with wife. I was lower 600’s on clomid. Success was had and was moved to injections and this lab was after 6 weeks of injections. I feel much better on injections and can tell a difference. Would request of going to 125/week be reasonable?

Yes, try for 125
