Im 37, with an active lifestyle and workout 3-4 times a week. When i started i weighed 215 pounds at 5’ 11” with some fat around my waistline. A few months ago i had bloodwork done and it showed that i had low T. It was around 350. I had a few of the low T symptoms lack of energy, difficulty sleeping, brain fog and i began to gain extra bodyfat even though i have a relatively clean diet. My GP was willing to let me try test C and initially set me up with a 200mg dose of test C every 2 weeks. I know this is bad routine but the GP was somewhat reluctant to give the injection so i agreed to start with this protocol. The first week i felt amazing, i cant remember the last time i felt that good! About a week later the effects started to lessen which was expected. I met with the GP again and he wanted to stay on that dose routine. It took 6 weeks before i finally convinced him to allow me to do the injections at home. For the last 2 weeks i have been injecting .25mg of 200mg/l test C subq 2x per week to help get me back on track.
Prior to injecting at home on a normal routine i started to notice that i was retaining water, losing energy, and started having mild ED issues. I am hoping that my new dosing routine will help turn things around but i am concerned because i dont feel anything like i did after the very first injection. I am trying to schedule follow up bloodwork to check for e2 levels. I am guessing that i killed my own t production with the 2 week dosing protocol but will it start to come back with the lower dose more frequent injections or should i stop for a while and let my own t levels come back up before i continue? Im looking for suggestions on anything i can do to help reverse the side effects of the bad dosing routine initially.
