Here are my labs from subQ T cyp injections. (Yes subQ)
-52mg T cyp injected every three days
-1/3mg of Adex every three days
-250IU HCG every three days (Labs are without HCG for a week per Dr request.)
Labs were drawn on day of next injection prior to injection.
TT- 872 (range 250-1100)
free T- 140 (range 46-224)
Bio avail T- 306.3 (range 110-575)
Ultra sensitive E2- 21 (range <29)
My experience with it is subQ T cyp is fine if you’re injecting less than .5ml per injection. Use a 29g 1/2 and insert it at a 45 degree angle to avoid any leakage from the injection site. There isn’t any pain at all.
Results for me have been decent in regards to my body. Some nagging problems I had went away. (Heart would beat strange for several seconds occasionally when doing cardio, fatigue, muscle spasms in my abdomen, generally feeling like crap, all of these are history.)
Unfortunately I suffer from depression so libido is zero as is interest in anything else in life. The initial surge in T from starting TRT would always temporarily knock me out of depression but that would fade and I’m back to square one.
I’ve started and stopped treatment a few times and the same thing happened to a lesser degree every time I stopped and started. I’m not sure what to do with that problem yet because I don’t want to go down the antidepressant road. Feel free to give me any suggestions.
Just a note that I’ve already tried every herbal remedy on earth without any results. Zoloft worked but left me mentally crippled at work. (believe it or not Zoloft returned my sexual function!!) Wellbutrin did nothing but give me hot flashes.
I think unless you’ve experienced a clinical depression it’s difficult to understand. I have a depression that makes me completely blank. No emotion at all. No interest in anything at all. Every day I just go through the motions.
It’s been about a 15 year slide to this point. I was wondering if it was the chicken or the egg with my low T and depression. I chose to treat the low T first and now I know that depression is the major player here. Depression itself has been known to totally screw with HPTA function.
Depression I think is a very misleading word for the illness because it’s more than a mood. It effects your whole body.
Anyone here on an antidepressant that doesn’t give them ED? Let me know. At this point I could care less about the other sexual sides.
