So a little back ground info since I am new to these forums. I’m a 33 year old male checking in at 5’9, 135lbs. I recently just got back into the gym a few months ago after some issues with depression as I felt it was the best way to get back on track.
I was went to an online Dr. for TRT to see if it might help me. I’ve always had huge issues gaining weight (I currently am 135 but a month ago was 123lbs) I made those gains by moving from a 1,200 calorie diet to a 4,000 calorie diet. I have also struggled with depression and some other things that the Dr seemed to think TRT will help with.
My labs came back today at a 426 level. I was told I will be prescribed Test Cyp infused w/ Anastrozole at a dose of 1mL a week. Gonadorelin Acetate will be dosed at .2mg 2x weekly instead of HCG.
The Dr had mentioned that I needed to make sure that every 2 months I am donating blood however. Could someone help me with understanding this? I’ve spoke to some other friends doing TRT and none of them are doing that. My Hemoglobin level was 16.6 and Hematocrit 47.8.
