Hey guys- 34 years old here, been training on and off since high school but very consistent the last 4 years with training and nutrition. Dont drink at all, smoke a little pot here and there. Been experiencing low T symptoms for years but chalked it up to working alot, stress, 2 kids etc, but what really made me question what was going on was watching some other guys my age join my gym and do less than optimal workouts and talk about their partying and shitty eating habits but watching them make more progress in a year than I have in 4. So I got levels tested at the GP and came in with total T at 219 (264-969) and free T at 7 (8.6-25.1). Went to a urologist who specializes in TRT and he did a more comprehensive hormone panel and confirmed my low levels as well as that my thyroid and everything else seemed good and wasn’t an underlying issue.
He seems very knowledgeable and open to trying different things, but wanted to start me on Xyosted, which is an auto injector, with 100mg Test E once per week. Last night was my first injection. He is open to HCG and AI use if required. I have 4 weeks of the xyosted and then go back to him the day before what would be my 5th injection so he can do bloodwork during the trough.
Has anyone used this stuff before? Does this sound like a shit protocol? I’m looking forward to feeling better but also just am generally nervous about committing to TRT for some reason. I’m also not sure yet about being cool with my balls shriveled up lol, but HCG makes me nervous too because it seems so hit or miss for guys on whether is helps or makes things worse. He is also 100% open to going to Test C in regular injection form, which I may ask for when I go back so I can do 2x per week vs 1x. Anyone have any input or want to help put my mind at ease lol
