This is not a normal situation, the rules do not fit the same.
(Don’t know if that’s good or bad.)
If you had TT=780 on 200mg T/week, I would stay there. But at what day were the labs done???
(Labs were done 7 days AFTER my previous shot of Test Cyp @ 200mg. and right BEFORE my next shot.)
TT=900-1000 is a good target.
(Maybe with hCG now in the mix, I can hit that.)
Your response seems to be indicating that you are a hyper metabolizer of T. We do not know what that means other than the effec that a few guys need twice as much T as others.
(I was originally on 200mg. of Test Cyp every 2 weeks. Went to get my labs done right before I took my next shot and my T levels were 175 and that’s when my Doc switched my to 200mg. Test Cyp every week.)
Given the above, you would be feeling a large drop in T levels, brain fog etc.
(I was afraid of having that old familiar feeling come back.)
And anastrozole needs to match T levels. In your case, we cannot match anastrozole to T dose as your response is not typical.
(I took .25mg of anastrozole on Tues and Fri, for a weekly dose of .50mg of anastrozole.)
Recommend that you inject 100mg twice per week and take anastrozole at the time of injection for simplicity. Then do labs later, 1/2 way between injections.
(Are you saying, if inject on Tues and Fri to test on Thurs? Next time I get my labs done, I will make sure and request all the paperwork, instead of just taking his word for it, that everything ‘looks good.’)
SC will provide smoother release curve than IM. 1/2ml T SC will create a good bump on your skin that you will have to live with.
(Does the bump go away before I have to inject in that area again?)
The shrinking testes are a direct effect of TRT and hCG is the solution. The direct result of inaction is harm and your doc may have trouble seeing the fact that inaction is a decision with negative consequences. hCG is a natural hormone and one lobe of the hormone is identical to the active lobe of your LH.

(My doc, again he left the practice this week and I need to find a new one, was not clear on hCG and the benefits. I mentioned it to him and he kept thinking about hCG from a diet perspective and not helping out restore normal testes function, but he prescribed it for me anyway. Being that I was on 200mg. of Test Cyp weekly for about 3 months, is 250iu of hCG enough to restore function? I have no problem waiting this out.)
I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your help with this.
