Tips on Getting a Doc to Prescribe TRT?

I’ve grown accustomed to 2 weeks on/4 weeks off mini-cycles (with breaks after every 2-3 cycles) in the spirit of following Bill Robert’s advice. These cycles have worked well for me - as you’d expect, I don’t get revolutionary results, but the benefits given side effects and maintenance concerns are acceptable to me.

Anyway, here’s my plan:

Deca Durabolin 100mg taken 5 days before a blood exam.

This will cause my test levels to be way low at the time of the test, yes? At such a low dose, it may still take my natural levels about a month to return to normal (or so I’ve heard), but it seems worth it considering I’ll have access to insurance-covered pharma grade test prop for life.

As is obvious, I don’t intend to follow traditional TRT guidelines lest my test never be normal on its own - instead, I’ll just stock up and do my 2 on/4 off cycles indefinitely.

Does anyone have experience with purposely altering test levels in anticipation for a test?

any aas will drop your natural production if you stay on it long enough. im not sure that 5 days on deca will suffice however.

I’ve only ever run mini-cycles consisting of my being “on” only 2 weeks. The only drug I use aside from ancillaries is Test Prop.

I’m hesitant to try anything I’m unfamiliar with. What I guess I’m trying to ask is if there’s an easy and painless way to get test levels low for a single test.

Do they even prescribe test p for TRT?

Oh yeah, that is a concern.

I was thinking that I’d be able to say something like, “I’ve heard that Test Prop has fewer sides than longer esters. I know that I’d have to administer the drug often, but I’d prefer this and the resultant more stable test levels, than with the other forms of the drug.”

Will a doc buy it?

A friend of mine is prescribed Test Prop for TRT. Its dosed at 75mg every 4th day. Not sure how he talked him into or why he wouldn’t just ask for C or E for less pinning but none the less.

Huh, I thought it wasn’t approved for prescription use

I’ve never heard of prop for TRT… but then again they are reviewing trenbolone for trt so who knows…

OP, any aas will take your natural levels, just run a short cycle with prop, and go visit the doc a couple weeks after your last pin without pct

I went in and asked the Doc for viagra, said I was having a little trouble in the bedroom, he says your a little young for viagra, mabey we should try TRT, I almost choked, sitting there at 230lbs and 37yr fairly lean, my girl was there with me at the time, but anyway no blood work, just 250 test E every other week, last three years, I’ve got good coverage so it saves me some money, lol

that’s a pretty shitty doctor, but a cool one

Ya three years no blood work, and I sent my buddy in with same story so I can run 1000 a mth, good and bad I supose, At least in Canada TRT seems to be getting easier to get.

Week up until the blood test take liqourice extract every day.
Don’t sleep the night before the blood test.
Get completely shit wasted for the blood test.
Masterbate right before the blood test.

May not need the prop at all.

Btw, its more likely that the doc sends you to an endo before prescribing you test, and the endo will probably want to duplicate the previous results, so get ready for 2 bouts of that…IMO, find a lab you can you trust n stick with em.

Thanks for all the answers.

My Deca plan seems to have worked. Got a value of 200 ng/dL on the day of the test.

I’ve a new question now. So I took the shot of about 175mg of Deca 2 weeks ago. I didn’t inject anything else. Do I need to run PCT? How long until the stuff clears? How long should I wait before starting my next cycle? As far as symptoms go I feel a little tired and I think I have some slight atrophy in my left nut (I may be imagining this, though).

Again, thanks.

haha reading your first post my first thought was “this guy is gonna ask about PCT for his micro cycle”

I would say if really all you did was a few injections you should be fine, but you really shouldnt take your endocrine system for a ride like that

Doesn’t masturbation acutely raise testosterone?

I masturbate before working out because the teen girls in yoga pants will drive me insane otherwise.

That’s good advice - hopefully I’ll never have anything but carefully cycled test prop in my system from now on.

I’m a young guy at 22; I’ll just chalk this up to naivety. I’ll have to think of another excuse in case I try something like this again, but hey, that’ll do for now.

Some kids my age drive drunk and screw whores without condoms; I inject myself with long-ester’d compounds to punk doctors.

You’re from the home / birthplace of Kentucky greats George Rogers Clark (Lewis & Clark) U.S. President Zachary Taylor, Daniel Boone, James Bowie, President Abraham Lincoln, Kit Carson, Cassius Clay / Muhammad Ali, Col. Harland Sanders and NFL Green Bay Packer Paul Hornung and you let yoga pants bring you down ??? You don’t have a life plan to battle that do you?
