I already have a case thread, these are more general questions.
- As far as I’ve learned, injectable testosterone shuts down the HPTA completely where cream partially shuts it down. Cream allows the levels to drop later in the day/at night to a point where the pituitary kicks in and starts signaling. As someone who is 26, this seems beneficial for protecting fertility (alongside HCG) as well as leaving the potential for getting off of TRT (cause was adrenal fatigue/sleep apnea). More evidence in my case is I didn’t see teste shrinkage on the cream before I started using HCG and I saw it with injections.
- If 1 is true wouldn’t that eliminate the need for HCG?
- If you apply t cream in the morning when do the levels rise and when do they fall? I’m assuming you have to shoot for pretty substantial morning testosterone levels in order to make this something usable for all day
