(edit corrected the mg per ml of the enanthate I am using. Primoteston is 250mg per ml and not 200mg. )
Looking for some advise on my protocol.
Very briefly, symptoms began about 18 months ago with extreme fatigue, depression and low libido. Those are the major but not the only symptoms.
29 years old, commenced TRT mid Jan 2018 at 0.5ml (250mg a ml enanthate) every week which has since increased to 0.5ml e5d. To control high SHBG i am taking 200mg Danazol e5d. My T level still appears to be slightly low.
Testosterone (8.3 - 29 nmol/L)
SHBG (11 - 71 nmol/L)
Oestradiol ( <150 )
TSH (0.4 - 3.5)
FT3 (2.6 - 6)
Regardless of time of day, consistently less than 36.5c. Over the last 3 days, 3pm temp has been between 36.2 and 36.5
My results prior to commencing TRT
Date Test SHBG Oestradiol
13/11/2017 17 51 125
28/12/2017 11 58 79
Date TSH FT4 FT3
31/7/2017 1.5 17 5
13/11/2017 1.1 18 4.5
Results 6 weeks in, on protocol of 0.5ml e7d, no AI
Peak at 24hr post injection:
Morning (day 5 of 7) at the request of doc:
Current Protocol as of beginning March 2018:
0.5ml (250mg ml) Enanthate e5d.
0.5 Anastrazole at time of injection. (I will be changing this to 0.5mg e3.5d)
200mg Danazol e5d to control SHBG
Not too concerned with testicular atrophy, hence no HCG.
Latest results as of yesterday, 24th:
4 days after injection, 1 day before next injection:
Total T: 15.6
TSH: 1.5 miu/L
FT3: unfortunately they didn’t test it
I am still experiencing profound fatigue which is my main concern. Testosterone appears a bit low on my protocol which surprises me considering my relatively high SHBG.
I am getting some Lugols tomorrow in an effort to improve thyroid function. I would prefer not to have to inject test more frequently than every 5 days if possible.
