So I’m starting my TRT journey sometime this week, whenever the stuff is delivered. Thanks for tuning in.
I used Defy, they were good through the whole process and I appreciate that they can take care of everything end-to-end.
20mg Test Cyp Daily - Sub Q
150IU HCG Daily - Sub Q
25mg DHEA nightly - Oral
I have very low Test, Free T, and Estrogen, so I appreciate that the Dr prescribed me an AI so that I would have it, but told me not to take it unless severe issues were encountered and even then to call back first.
He said that from my labs I have high “lutenizing hormone” so that’s why he went with daily injections.
I’m excited to get started, although a little nervous. There are many stories on here about the first week being weird, and my first week happens to line up with my vacation. Not sure what to expect.
I’m also wondering if my dose is too low. I only have forums to compare with, but my dose works out to 140mg per week. The common starting point seems to be at least 200mg. And my Free T levels are very low:
So maybe he’s just starting me out low because there’s nowhere to go but up? I mean I’m not going to question it since I haven’t even done an injection yet, but it’s hard not to overthink things.
