Yes I know I fucked with my prescribed TRT protocol. I also know you should discuss changes in medication with your doctor BEFORE doing them, but I didn’t want to wait another 6 months between bloods.
So my prescribed TRT protocol is 80mg Test-C Sunday morning and 80mg Wednesday evening, with 0.25mg adex taken with each pin. hCG is 500 IU 2x a week. After doing a bunch of reading and plotting on steroidplotter, I decided to do 40mg on Sunday, Monday, Wednesday, and Friday. Not quite evenly spaced, but close enough. I also dropped the adex completely. Bloods are below, both were drawn 1st thing in the morning on a Wednesday.
Total T - 933 ng/dL, Range 264-916
Free T - 27.8 pg/mL, Range 6.8-21.5
E2, sensitive - 25.8 pg/mL, Range 8-35
Total T - 1357 ng/dL, Range 264-916
Free T - 35.1 pg/mL, Range 6.8-21.5
E2, sensitive - 37.9 pg/mL, Range 8-35
So for me at least, upping the frequency to 4x a week and keeping the overall dosage constant had a marked effect on Total and Free T, with an understandable increase in E2 since I dropped the adex. Had I kept adex the same, I think I might have crashed or at least severely lowered E2. My plan now is to meet with my doctor next week and discuss lowering my T dosage and eliminating completely the adex. Just food for thought/discussion for those wondering about injection frequency.
