T levels really low so ran a Test cycle of 500mg/week complete with PCT with intention to go on TRT after some time off.
Time off was shorter than expected.
Ran Test E 250mg every 6th day. This is on the high side for TRT but I do not need Arimidex for this. More ideal is to inject more frequently to keep levels more stable.
This has kept my mood much better and energy much better and my sleep has been much better than before.
200lbs 11-14%BF and 5' 10" for reference. (Friend of mine who is 6' 8" 270 went on TRT and his dcotor prescribed dose was either 1g or 1.5g a week.)
Okay, long version:
I was 31, I had all the low T symptoms (lethargic, moody, never sleep), finally after 3-5 years I got my levels checked and 272. (300 was bottom of barrel for this lab.) Adjusted my diet (added more greens and good fats) focused on sleep, quit ALL alcohol went back 2 months later and it was 235...so that was that. With little consequence to my HPTA and with the intention of going on TRT after wards it was hello 1st Test cycle of 500mg per week. Ran adex about a gram a week because my estro levels made me annoyed (at times I could feel my head exploding in a mind out of body experience, I have a whole new respect for a womens monthly cycle) and I had itchy nipples.
I ran a PCT just to know those feels of coming off. It sucked, I felt just like I did before I went on but after feeling what normal people felt like (or a bit better) it was worse.
Enter TRT, my dosage is 250mg every 6th day. Once my levels had settled by the 5th or 6th day I noticed I would get annoyed more easily. I truly didnt expect that (despite somebody warning me, and on this site none the less). It was my only option but much more ideal is to run smaller doses every 3 days.
250mg per 6 days is a high TRT dose (by design). With that I do not need to take an AI and my mood, sleep and libido are pretty awesome. I did not notice too much teste shrinkage (I did when I was full on cycle) but then I dont really care about those guys anyways haha. If you are worried for them (kids or maybe you might not want to be on test for life) add in HCG. I think your body gets used to HCG eventually though, dont quote me, google it
I do want to try to come off again some time, when I do I will run probably a 2 month PCT with low doses of HCG, clomid, nolvadex.
I picked a dose I was pretty sure I would not need an AI for but something I knew I would notice. Before my levels had settled I would sometimes get itchy an itchy nipple. It never lasted though so I never used Adex. Now it doesnt happen. It took about a month though after my levels became what they are.
I HIGHLY INSIST USING A DOCTOR! I did not, I would consider myself rather lucky and this has only been a year. Also, I dont want kids and quality is more important than quantity so know the risks, talk with a doctor.
