Hehe holy hell i wonder how high it has been after the last shot… :slight_smile:

If 2 days ago it still was 52nmol, i think it’s still 40+ easily but it’s very hard to say so i just threw a number.

The most obvious question would be to know better about your cycle.
What did you take and how much, how often?

Have to ask just to make sure but are you AI and/or Serm atm?
Depending on your pct substances they can possibly affect your levels also.

Don’t try to lower it through anything stupid like drinking alcohol, it won’t work like that. You’d need to drink many days straight to plummet your levels.

Idk if it matters to you, but you should just postpone the doc appointment if you don’t fancy getting caught of supranatural levels.

I only done 1ml test e every week instead of every 10 days and also used 10g testogel I had left over

I only stopped that 3 days before the test so maybe it was a combo of the two still.

I’m having another private check tomorrow to see if it’s lowered enough…

How high would doc be happy with you think? I could tell him I pinned few days before test?

I assume test e 250mg/ml.
I’m only familiar with testogel 50mg product unfortunately.
Gel alone is potent enough for trt if you’re responding to it ( absorp ).

Half life is really short on gels usually ( around 8-9 hours if i recall right ) and with ethanate i think it was approximately 7 days or so.

Don’t have enough info how gel adds up when used on top of injections but your lab result clearly states it adds up quite a bit.

If you’d pinned the same day or day before, then the figure could be around +50ish at best ( this is my opinion i could be wrong with this ) so it’s possible he wouldn’t buy the story of you injecting 2 days prior the test.

Referenge ranges vary, i guess that if the value is a lot higher than 30 nmol/l he could have second thoughts but who can tell.

As general rule docs don’t want to see supranatural levels.

I’d check your E2 btw it’s kinda wild how high your testo levels have been.

I had a private lab done today and it came back at 23?! (10-30) so looks like I’m good to go for checkup tomorrow…
