I recently discovered that I can’t just increase my T dosing, because I’m not getting the TRT experience I desire at my current level of 30 mg EOD. Recently, I jumped from 30 mg to 40 mg (5 ML) over a week’s time thinking I was being smart by not “shocking” my system with the higher T dose all at once. Unfortunately,I got a very strong aromatase response, that caused a very uncomfortable BPH result, over a 3 week period. I lowered my dosing back to 30 mg and that seems fine where BPH is concerned but, my body requires more T to feel as I need to. I shared this problem a while ago, on this forum and I got a helpful response from a guy named Marcus, who explained that increasing T dosing slowly was the key since it gave the body time to adapt to the new T levels. He like other suggested 2 months, for my system to reach homeostasis, which is when my body has “accepted” the higher level of T and aromatization remains stable.
My question is what is a good level to choose for a single increase, without triggering high levels of aromatization, and still achieve my goal of a 40 mg increase EOD. Perhaps 4 mg for two months, then another another 4 mg for 2 months and finally 2 mg for two months. Totaling about 6 months to reach a dosing scheduled of 40 mg EOD, or a total increase of 10 mg. Can I choose a higher single dose, perhaps 3 or 4 mg to reduce the time to achieve the 40 mg goal, or maybe less time than 2 months, maybe 21 days would be doable to achieve homeostasis. I’m just not sure what increments to use for duration and dosing.
With that said, I know we are all different, I also know that there isn’t a definitive guide line. I’m just trying to get an informed opinion, hoping that someone may have knowledge in this area.
If you have an opinion I would be interested in hearing it. Please, base your response on the information in this post, this is not a question about labs.
