Your test cyp is 200mg/ml, not 2000mg/ml.
2000mg/ml would be a specific gravity of 2.0 and a solid. [T specific gravity is ~1.17]
A 10mg vial would be 2000mg per vial.
Please understand your dosing and we need mg’s, not ml’s because mg/ml is variable.
- inject 50mg T cyp [1/4ml] twice a week subq, not IM, over upper legs using #29 1/2" 0.5ml insulin syringes
- always do labs halfway between injections so that lab changes are not from lab timing changes
- take 1/2mg anastrozole/Arimidex at time of injections
- inject 250iu hCG subq EOD to preserve testes and fertility
Endo’s are the worst. Having a good experience with an endo seems to be quite rare.
Target/optimal is E2=22pg/ml - 80pmol/L. A bit above normal is horrible. The word “normal” is from a statistical normal/bell curve where range cut-offs capture 95% of the sample group. E2 near high-normal is very poor quality of life. Confused? Most doctors are and they think that lab normal means a good result. Optimal is completely different.
Most guys here have to educate their doc, often impossible, or try to find another doc. There is a sticky for that.

Evaluate your overall thyroid function by checking oral body temperatures as per the thyroid basics sticky. Thyroid hormone fT3 is what gets the job done and it regulates mitochondrial activity, the source of ATP which is the universal currency of cellular energy. This is part of the body’s temperature control loop. This can get messed up if you are iodine deficient. In many countries, you need to be using iodized salt. Other countries add iodine to dairy or bread.

I can be a bit abrupt in my replies and recommendations. I have a lot of ground to cover as this forum has become much more active in the last two years. I can’t follow threads that go deep over time. You need to respond to all of my points and requests as soon as possible before you fall off of my radar. The worse problems are guys who ignore issues re thyroid, body temperatures, history of iodized salt. Please do not piss people off saying that lab results are normal, we need lab number and ranges.
The value that you get out of this process and forum depends on your effort and performance. The bulk of your learning is reading/studying the suggested stickies.
