Question about Monthly Injection

Ive had issues with the androgel, but ive lowered my dose to see if I can gradually work my dosage up to avoid side effects. The doc said if this didnt work, he could give me a monthly injection. How do the monthly injection work? Are they time released? Would they more than likely make your E2 rise?

I didnt know monthly injections existed, so I wanted to find out more info. He told me I could just slide by and get them and he wont charge mefor the visit, only the injection and drug. Hopefully the androgel starts to work.

Most likely a large dose of T, high T levels, then low, high estradiol and you feel like shit.

Read the protocol for injections sticky.

2 twice weekly injection are the best to keep stable blood levels and less spike in e2.

double ditto on both responses

6 months ago, the doctor put me on monthly shots. The first one I felt like King Kong for about 5 days. Then, for the next 3 weeks, I felt so horrible that I wanted to die! I had the worse hot flashes that you can imagine. When I got my second shot, I felt a little better for about 4 days. Then, I reached a new level of shit that I did not know existed. I had so much estrogen that I could hardly function.

Then, I found this website! Thanks to KSMan and several others on here, I am back to life! I am 47 and feel 25 again. I inject EOD just like the sticky says. I also take hcg and anastrozole. PLEASE follow the sticky and listen to these guys. I literally owe my life to them!!
