Switching form Testim gel (DHT gets way too high due to 5-AR skin conversion from T to DHT). Was doing 7.5g per day (5g = 500mg of T with 1% gel). I want to go SubQ test cyp and was able to get a 10mL 100mg/mL bottle and have 25 gauge 1 mL 5/8 syringes coming in the mail. HCT is screaming high at T is at 1000ng/dL, which surprised the hell out of me as this is a gel. I cut back to one tube and T levels dropped to less than 500 ng/dL, so the amount converted is not linear. DHT was 225ng/dL, with high starting at 85. Starting to notice hair thinning from the DHT and PSA increased from 2.2 to 3.3. So I need a smoother ride and am ready to start experimenting again until I get the subQ right.
Going to start with .4mil (40mg) once on Wednesday and once on Saturday and then go from there. However, the pharmacist informed me that any bottle of T should only be kept for 28 days and the FDA just released a warning about keeping it longer, due to bacteria getting into the oil even when great care it taken, because of the number of holes the little bastards can make their way into.
A 10mL bottle is going to last me a long time at .8mL/week, so I’m think when I go up to a higher dose I would go with the 200mg/mL strength mainly for two reasons. One is the one just mentioned, and the other has to do with the fact that nobody sells 100mg/mL test cyp anymore except in the 10Ml bottle. There is 200mg/ml in 1 ml bottles and I can get four of those really cheap.
Now for my question: can one do subQ with 200mg/mL? I would think it would be thicker? Anyone out there used this strength and did it subQ? If so, what gauge needled are you using?
