As the topic says…injected with a small needle in the belly…and not pinching the belly…but rather spreading the belly surface the same way you would spread your thigh out tight if done instramusular. Or does it even make much of a difference if you pinch the belly vs. spreading it out so the surface is tightened?
How does this protocol sound?
I was under the impression T is supposed to be injected intramuscular in the thigh or shoulder, once or twice a week. It seems like that is the norm. If using a smaller needle into the belly fat, which is painless, works as well, then why do most on TRT do the painful intramuscular injection into the thigh/shoulder? What benefit does the intramuscular injection have over injecting into the belly with a small needle?
I though 250iu 1X or 2X a week was the norm. I thought 500iu dosage was only for people on HCG monotherapy.
Could someone who has a lot of experience on the forum tell me what the general consensus is on these two topics?
I was on HCG monotherapy 500iu EOD. So I was surprised to hear that this clinic has everyone doing injections 2x a week at 62.5 mg into the belly fat + the same dosage of HCG as done in monotherapy (500IU, just less frequent). I thought 250iu was the standard normal dose.
Also…the cost of this is over $420 dollars a month…would it be feasible to seek more affordable options once someone is familiar with the procedure and can self-medicate without guidance? I do know of people who…after doing TRT under doctor care for awhile, switch to just buying the medicine directly from pharmacies and self medicating while also getting their bloodwork done once every 2 months. They say it costs a fraction of going through it under a TRT clinic.
