So I got started on a pretty standard protocol at a rather pricey clinic in Asia (over $400 per month)…because hospitals look at ny age (36) and “normal” T levels and refuse me.
I’m on week 2.
I was on HCG monotherapy for a couple months prior to this…then I came off HCG monotherapy for a month…then started this. My levels after 1 month off HCG monotherapy were 730 ng /dl…in the middle of my HCG monotherapy my peak was 890 ng/dl…so 730 ng dl will be my baseline.
Here is my protocol:
SubQ injections 2X a week, 0.3ml or 62.5mg, total = 125mg per week
HCG 500iu 2x a week
Vitamin D3 pill 2X a week.
Arimedex tablet (cut in half) 2x a week.
Question: My dr. insists on this dosage…but could I feasibly cut my dosage down to 80 mg per week (Dr. Crisler said 80mg of SUBQ can be as effective as 100mg instramuscular.
That way I could save 180mg per month…so in 2 months I save 360 mg…which I can use for an extra month…and therefore save some cash.
Or is my better option to stick with this clinic for the first few months…then go to a normal hospital and simply tell them I’m already on TRT, please continue the TRT protocol I’m on otherwise my levels will crash…?
Or…the most risky and shady options…where I am…it is possible to get T over the counter for real cheap…but there is no guarantee of its quality and if it has been consistently at room temperature (hot weather here).
