I have an Androgel question I’m hoping someone can help me with.
First off, I’m not a serious bodybuilder, though in fairly decent shape. 37 y.o. who discovered I’ve been having some problems with Low T. Total = 86.
So, I started about 3 months ago with the 5 mg. packets. About 2 weeks into the treatment, I started getting stiff erections, morning wood and during the days sometimes. This lasted for a couple of weeks and has waned ever since.
Furthermore, I’ve noticed somewhat of a decrease in my muscle tone rather than the expected boost in it. Also, my testicles have shrunken some, which I understand is to be expected.
So what gives?? Why did my sexual functioning get better and then trail off and why the loss of muscle tone? I’m a bit perplexed by that.
Any experiences/ideas you have to give would be much appreciated.
What you have experienced is normal for those using the gel. When you first start using the gel you get the short-lived boost until everything evens out in your body.
Transdermals convert over to estrogen easily and that is usually what ruins all the good results. Your testicles have shrunk because once you introduce an outside source of T then LH function will stop in the body. The only way to recover this is by going on HCG injections. These will keep your testicles going, stop the reduction in size and pain caused by it and possibly help you with being able to impregnate your wife/girlfriend.
I’m writing up a lengthy paper on my experiments with Testim that helped me go from a total T of 135 to 1729 with just one tube (5 grams), using an AI and natural supplements without the aid of any anabolic steroids added to it. If you’d like to know more send me a PM with your email address so I can send it to you when I am done. I’m putting it on Microsoft Word because I have had to work on it in stages throughout this past week. I should have it done sometimes today (Sunday).
It’s possible to have great success with the gels if that is your only resource as it was mine. I can tell you what worked for me. It’s completely turned my life around for the better.[/quote]
If you can get an AI (I’m assuming Nolva or Clo), why bother with the Androgel? I’ll assume its because your insurance picks it up.
What’s your AI?
