So after chatting with my Dr, he is switching me from Test Enanthate to Testosterone Cypionate.
He’s bumping me from 75mg to 120mg a week split between 4 doses instead of every 3.5 days previously.
I have a few questions, I didn’t ask him but everyone on here seems to clued up, I’m not sure how to tag people but would like some advice from all the regulars on here, especially guys with very low SHBG like myself, I’m 13nmol/l.
120mg seems a very big dose, I noticed previously when I was on a big dose Test E and in general when my levels are high I experience bloat and actually feel a bit fat, have some mild insomnia, low libido and the opposite of how I imagine testosterone is supposed to make you feel.
I noticed I felt better when my TT was in the 4 to 500’s total as it still has my FT pretty good and near top of range.
Am I right in saying that because I’m low shbg then I would do better on lower levels?
Should I start off slow with cypionate this time round and say do 20mg every other day for 6 weeks and test?
I have had short periods on TRT when I really felt how testosterone is supposed to make you feel but it feels like chasing the dragon sometimes, libido is the main thing for me and what I really want to achieve through TRT, I recently dropped HCG to like 75iu once every 9 days to just keep my testicles hanging etc and have to say feel better off the HCG.
Any guys with low shbg and feel better with lower levels?
Also any ideas on how I should attempt my new regime? Thinking of it’s every other day injections then I might feel better off the testosterone and won’t excrete the testosterone as quickly, if I’m right in saying once the testosterone is cleaved from the Ester then low shbg guys then excrete it pretty quickly.
Anyone notice any mark able difference between bi weekly injections to say every other day or every day?
Really want to get this TRT thing right and start feeling good consistently, even dropping the HCG was a massive step for me as I always felt you had to have testicles function to feel good.
Appreciate all your help guys and it’s a fantastic place on here for proper, balanced knowledge.
