I am new to this site and testosterone therapy. I have spent a few hours reading through various posts gaining valuable info. Thx. Seems every clinic has a slighly different way of doing things and what they want or do not want you to take. Just want some opionions from those of you who have been doing this for a while.
Here is my situation:
Before treatment 45 yr old
Testosterone Total: 166
Testosterone Free 25
After 4 weeks of weekly inj 140mg T. cypionate, arimidex 0.250mg per week.
Labs 7days post last injection.
Testosterone Total. 1094
Testosterone Free 243
Thyroid free, T3, reverse: within normal limits
Switched to another clinic because I did not feel comfortable at current place. New clinic said no need to take arimidex unless having symptoms. But they wanted me to begin taking HCG 250 twice weekly.
Are my levels too high?
I have gained 5 pounds in a month. Is that normal?
What is best cycle of HCG? or is it just preference?
Does it make a difference taking only cypionate or combo cypionte/propionate weekly?
I want to lower my total T to around 700-800 and see if I feel the same. Thinking of lowering dose from 140mg weekly to 50mg biweekly.
Thoughts? Thank you all for the info I have thus far learned reading posts.
