Before TRT was starting to show feminine weight distribution and is now changing.
Sought TRT because of: reduced libido, pain during urination/ejaculation, depression, fatigue, low quality of life, cognitive depression.
Diet is low in processed foods but is somewhat typical of a N.American diet. Limit protein powders to 40g/day.
Moderate cardio (10-20min), moderate-low weight training total-body each workout.
Testes never ache
Morning wood disappeared and I hadn’t really noticed. Now on TRTs it’s 50%

It was a real battle getting put on T replacement with my GP and my aging Urologist. Once I got in to see an Endo at Vancouver General Hospital it was a no-brainer for him to put me on treatment.
My Rx is 25mg 2X Wk of Test Cyp.
Here in Canada Test Cyp is only available in 100mg/mL and the drug has a 400mg/month maximum.
I see the doses on here are typically 2-3 times what I’ve been prescribed yet I feel good, have increased my muscle mass, reduced my body fat, and have a raging libido again (at 7 weeks in). Testes have shrunk and are soft which I don’t like. I intend to ask for hCG and an AI at my next visit.
My question is: is anyone here on such a low dose? Does anyone here live in Canada and receive a large dose like 150-200mg/wk and have it dispensed legit at a pharmacy? Does anyone know the rules as far as how much a Dr. can prescribe per month and still have it filled?
Currently a 10mL vial of 100mg/mL is only available to me every 70 days. So the MAX dose I can administer is 84mg/WK without getting it off the street.
No need to explain any Endocrinology or Biology, I’m studying medicine and have a good understanding.
