From Androgel to Test Cyp



I am new to this forum but I have been lifting for a while. I was diagnosed with Hypogonadism 2 years ago and the doctor gave me Androgel. It helped but not like when I was younger.

Its hell getting older but better than the alternative!

I got off of the Androgel 6 weeks ago and I am now taking 1 ml injection every 2 weeks of Test Cyp. I am seeing a marked improvement of my mood, and weight training

The questions are:

  1. Is it my imagination or is there that big of a difference between Androgel and Test Cyp?

  2. How long does it take for the Test Cyp. to hit your bloodstream?

  3. Should you feel something right away after the injection?

  4. When you near the end of the 2 weeks should there be a dip in energy levels? (not feeling it but another guy at the gym said he experiences one?)

Thanks In Advance for your help
