Your doc is ripping you off. You have a right to all your med records, as Tuskill points out. Take a look at your baseline results (i.e. before HRT). Assuming your T is low, get your primary doc to prescribe Androgel and it should be fully covered. (Obviously, if it’s not low, bail on HRT, and likewise, bail for now if you haven’t checked other potential causes; you’re only a few months in.) I wouldn’t add hcg without full lab info, but if the script is going to expire, then sure, I’d probably fill it just to have it on hand. [/quote]
Well I’ve really been on the TRT since the beginning of april, I had all my labs done back then total t was at 118 prior to TRT… testes are definitely shrinking in size… but while I"m doc shopping I want to start the hcg.
So I have another question… I called up CVS their bottle of hcg is close to 300 dollars without insurance.
However, I called the compounding pharmacy and this is the email result that I got form them below:

That prescription is and will be valid until 4/28/15 and may be filled in Indiana. The HCG we compound is HCG 2000 units/ml, 5 ml vial $59.95. If we can be of further assistance , please let us know.[/quote]
I asked why so cheap these are the responses I get

We are a compounding pharmacy, and make it with the actual chemical that is purchased from chemical suppliers. CVS is likely selling the commercially available product[/quote]

The chemical is the same, USP grade. We do not copy commercially available products.[/quote]
So the reason for HCG is because I want to try to have a child with my girlfriend, I have a good job just shitty insurance. So should I lower the dose of T while taking the HCG as I heard HCG can cause spikes in T just from the injections themselves.
Also is the HCG above just as good as “commercial versions” the pharmacy is telling me its the same chemical.
