Test Timing

My question is if taking topical or injection when is the best time to get blood test?

When I was on Androgel my doc states to take bloodwork about an hour after applying the gel. I know this would probably get the peak result on blood test.

So if injecting do you get bloodwork the day before your next injection or a day after your injection?

(My doc still has me off my Testim 1% for a few more weeks to get bloodwork, myy RBC and Heematocrit was slightly elevated).

Try to test at your troughs…so basically just before your next injection.
