I apologize for the wall of text but I’m trying to include all pertinent info. I’m 26, 6’5 and 250. Fatigue, irritability, and low sex drive were symptoms.These are my initial tests prior to starting TRT.
They prescribed me 100mg test c weekly with a re-test one week after my 6th injection. About 3-4 weeks in I start feeling the aching and notice the slight atrophy of my boys. On my follow-up visit I was able to convince her to prescribe HCG. I wanted this to decrease the near constant ache and increase my now noticeable atrophying. Fertility isn’t really much of a concern at the moment.
They only tested total T on the follow-up which came back as a trough of 248. Due to me not noticing much of a difference, she doubled my dose to 200mg weekly. I’ve taken this dose for 2 weeks with my 3rd shot due on Friday.
I received my HCG prescription yesterday, which was surprisingly premixed at 1000 units/ml, with a dose of 500 units EOD. I feel this is excessive starting out but I’m new to this. I only took 250 units last night. I had to send her articles on HCG to convince her to prescribe it.
I plan on splitting up my T into 2 weekly shots on Monday and Friday of 100mg. What is an ideal dose for the HCG? Should I split it with the T shots or go EOD?
Since they only tested total T, I was thinking of ordering online lab work but am not sure the ideal time during my dosing periods to get the tests done? Should I wait a could weeks after starting HCG before testing?
I have been reading around on the forum but I still have hours left to read. Thanks for any and all help!
