Just was placed on TRT. My total test was 370 and experiencing symptoms.
My doc (urologist) wanted to give me 400mg of test cypionate every 3 weeks in one shot. I talked him in to 1ml (200mg) every 10 days but am worried that this is even too long between shots. From all I’ve read I feel like I shouldn’t go longer than a week. And 3 weeks between shots?
I also talked to him about what happens if my estrogen levels go up and whether I should have something on hand if it does. He poo-poo’d that away and said that in 8 weeks he will do a blood test and measure estrogen and if it is too high the solution is to drop the test amount.
He “taught” me how to self-inject in my outer thigh using a 5ml syringe and a 20 gauge needle. Felt like a harpoon but at least it didn’t hurt.
Anyway, I am going to visit another urologist and see if his approach is any different. I just feel like the protocol this doc is suggesting is not as comprehensive as I would like.
