Hi everyone, as the title suggests, I’m new to TRT and I’m looking for some help. I’m 30 and after having symptoms of hypogonadism such as fatigue, difficulty concentrating, low motivation, low libido, weak erections, difficulty keeping muscle etc. Anyway after many months convincing my GP it wasn’t psychological I was sent to an endo and my total testosterone came out at 12 nmol/l (346 ng/dl) - this was the only result I was told after asking for it - I was also tested for thyroid, iron, diabetes and a few others which all came back fine. I was originally prescribed a testosterone gel to increase my levels but it gave me a bit of a rash and lots of itching so I insisted I be switched to an injectable form of trt. I am now on 150 mg of test E per week. I’m slightly worried as I think this is quite a high dose for my test levels as I’ve seen many with total T in the range of 200 ng/dl skyrocket to over 1000 ng/dl with this dose plus no AI was prescribed so I’m worried about high E2 levels too.
I am considering only doing 80-90 mg per week and splitting this and injecting twice a week. I have read many stories of how too much test can cause a whole host of problems. Do you guys think this would be a better dose?
Also I’m due to have another round of blood tests at week 6 - I’ll ask for a full hormonal blood work and an actual copy of the results.
