I know exactly what you’re talking about. Thanks for sharing.

Were you on a-gel before?

Yes, and it was a year of misery. Many guys do well on the gels; not me. I used progressively more Androgel. I then went to Testim with the same scheme. The results were very poor. I then began Cyp once/3 weeks. Then every 2 weeks.

I finally found a scientist who explained that you need to inject on your half-life days. Wow! I remembered the name of a student who came to visit me, and he graduated 2 years ago. My memory is WAY better. My mood is better, as is my energy. My TKD Poomse come more naturally (and the damnned things are looonnnnggggg.)

It’s strange.

I feel as if I should be injecting every 5th day. The last two days of the week are down days for me waiting for the next injection. I’ve even tried bumping up my dosage 40% to compensate and it’s still the same thing, I really feel the drag those last two days though I also feel I’m peaking much higher.

Are you injecting Enanthenate, that has a half-life of 4 days?

I’m using T-cyp, and still feel a drag after the 5th day.

I’d just got to injecting every 5th day but then I’d get busted by my wife who knows I do it Wednesday nights. I can get away with a slight overdose to see how that works, but changing the injection routine is sure to lead to a vigorous discussion as I don’t have my Endo’s permission to do so. I’ll just wait until I see the Endo again and ask him if it’s okay to do.

I know, not a very “T-man” way to behave!

headhunter, thanks for the help that you have given me about hrt.
I have been on 200mg every 6 days for the last 2 weeks and I feel great. before that it was 100mg every 7 days and I just didn’t feel as good. so congrats on the shots and keep us up to date.

Thanks! But another gent on here, Rainjack, is way more knowledeable on this stuff than me. He gave me, for ex, the tip about warming the fully-loaded syringe on a hot pad for half an hour. I’ve had ZERO soreness at the injection site since.

Try it and see. If your bloodwork comes back fine, then that means that’s the proper timing for you. We’re all unique and the doc is going by means and averages.

Do you have any left over Androgel? If so, put that on during those 2 days and see how your bloodwork comes back. You may need to do something like that.

Why not break it up into 2 or EOD shots? If your doing 200 mg a week, just do 2 100’s or 4 50’s…

I know cyp is a once a week ester, but I recently did mine EOD and liked it better.
