- Once weekly
- Twice weekly
- Every other day
I wanted to start a thread to find out how often the majority of people inject testosterone and why, whether it’s because of excess aromatisation issues or maybe you metabolize testosterone more quickly. Please note if having high estrogen side effects on said protocol and whether or not you are on an AI.
No AI on these results, all Total T results was within plus or minus 75 ng/dL.
50mg Twice weekly E2 = 70 pg/mL Poor response to TRT
20mg EOD E2 = 43 pg/mL Strong response to TRT started here!
7mg daily E2 = 26 pg/mL An even better response, overstimulated my skin.
Do to strange skin issues I can’t do an everyday protocol, as of right now I’m injecting 21mg EOD, no AI, no HCG. This protocol will see Total T right at or above 500 ng/dL, Free T levels slightly over the range (21+) and estrogen hovering in the low 40’s. SHBG hovers around 18-22.
While my SHBG wasn’t low before TRT, almost midrange in fact, do to a poor response to TRT, I have come to the conclusion that I metabolize testosterone quickly and therefore started responding to TRT after I started an EOD protocol, only two weeks into it, I started noticing muscles were getting firmer and veins were starting to show in arms and legs.
I do have estrogen side effects on my EOD protocol (no estrogen sides on an ED protocol) and am attempting to lose weight to correct the aromatase issues, lowered libido, softer erections, mental fogginess and some fatigue. If I take a small sliver of aromasin, I feel amazing for about 3.5 days, clearer mind and creativity is amazing and then in recovering from low estrogen which only takes days.
