New on Testosterone Cypionate


#1

I am a 19 year old student who has recently switched from 2 pumps of androgel 1.62 to 100 mg of testosterone cyp per week. I have also started on lexapro (an antidepressant) because of my depression and anxiety. I took my first shot about 2 days ago. How should I expect to feel in the future?

Please read these stickies:

  • advice for new guys, note 1st paragraph
  • things that damage your hormones
  • protocol for injections

You should self inject twice a week.
Most need anastrozole ~1mg/week in divided doses to manage E2 levels
You need 250iu hCG SC EOD to prevent damage to testes and lost of fertility
