I am a 23 year old college student and athlete, and I have been on HRT for about 8 years. I recieve the treatment as complications due to childhood cancer and the ensuing chemotherapy and radiation left my body with a small capacity to produce testosterone. No matter, it didnt prevent me from growing to 6’6" and 205 lbs lean with therapy.
Since there is a serious shortage of other guys in my position (early 20’s getting LEGAL test) I havent been able to compare dosages and results with anyone.
I have been on Androgel Pump for the last two years at a dosage of 10g/day at 1% androgel. While I have had good energy and been able to gain strength, I still feel as though I should be at a higher energy level. Unlike most of you guys, I have never felt what “normal” feels like as I have grown up on the HRT. Recently (today) I switched to injectables as I have read that they are much more potent with fewer side effects, plus as an extremely active guy its hard for me to be consistent on application. my dosage now is 300mg/week.
I really dont know what to expect here, I hope for better sleep, strength and size gains and to finally shake this lethargic feeling which follows me around. Sex drive has never been a problem however, thank god.
Any info you guys have on results you have gotten with injectables vs. androgel is very welcome. Like I said, I am pretty unique in my age here, so i could really use the advice on what to expect. Let me know if you have any questions.
