The more common them around here are terrible TRT protocols, once weekly injections works for a smaller percentage of people. These large once weekly injections can drive estrogen production, smaller more frequent dosing can help lower estrogen and keep levels more stable and from swinging between injections.
When I was injecting once weekly, I could feel a crash on the third day after my injection, injecting smaller doses EOD made a world of difference and is when my muscles started growing and I started noticing body comp changes.
If you are a high body fat percentage and controlling estrogen is proving to be challenging, smaller more frequent dosing will help tremendously.
TRT may not show good results until your thyroid treatment is dialed in. You can no long boost testosterone while injecting testosterone, your HPTA will shut down inside of a few weeks.
It’s a better idea to start TRT in isolation as there are less moving parts to analyze and you may never know what’s causing what symptoms.
Your initial symptoms are quite common, I felt exactly the same for about 6 weeks before my head started clearing, little by little I started feeling better and mood was the first to improve.
Whether you’ve been on TRT for days or years, every time you change your dosage, it takes 6 weeks for testosterone and estrogen levels to reach a stable state.
