I’ve been on TRT treatment until recently, I was out of the country and dropped off it for just short of 3 months. Now that I’m back I want to get back on it. I’ve changed doctors and have found one that will both follow my E2 levels and let me do my own injections (not too much to ask IMHO, my previous 2 docs would only do one or the other).
This new doc tells me the state medical boards (Texas) really hassle doctors prescribing hCG (I guess it’s also used for weight loss in some not so legit clinics?) and that’s probably why I’ve had such problems getting someone to prescribe it for me. When I asked what he does for patients who want to have kids he told me he has them stop TRT.
So, can I DIY hCG? From the sticky “TRT: Protocol for Injections” it suggests 250iu hCG SC EOD - what needs to be monitored to know that’s right? Should I tell the doc I’m DIYing it, or just let the lab work guide him to the right TT levels?
Can I get hCG via an international pharmacy?
Am I stupid for considering this? I did see what seemed to me to be a significant degree of shrinkage previously, but then I might not be the most unbiased of observers - I don’t want anything shrinking down there.
