I have been on TRT since August of last year. The doctor I see is a little hard to understand and does not really seem to listen to me but, I can’t seem to locate anyone else south of Chicago who will be any better. I started out taking what I thought was .5ml of Test cypionate IM twice per week on Saturday and Wednesday. The doctor cut this dose to .37ml twice per week after three weeks and I stayed on that dose for almost two months. My blood test during my visit back in October was Test 1080 and Estrogen 38. I told the Doctor I wanted Anastrozle for my estrogen and she would not give it to me, instead she gave me DIM-Evail. She asked how I felt and I told her I felt better when I was taking the .5ml twice per week so she said I could go back to that dose. I have been taking the .5ml twice per week since. My levels at my appointment last week were through the roof. My test level was 1900 (1920 to be more exact I think) and my estrogen was 80. The doctor told me she could no longer prescribe me any test because I had two test over 800 and that was the threshold for insurance. So now I have to take an entire month off and go for another blood test.
The bottles of test I have read that they are 200ml per 1mg. When I say I am taking .5ml I am filling the syringe with .50ml of the test. Someone recently told me that because the dose is actually 200ml per 1mg that I am getting 100ml per shot (even though it is only .5ml of liquid), or 200ml total per week? Is that correct? Maybe it is and that would explain the super high number?
My question is, since my test level is so high and my estrogen level is so high should I take some anastrozle (my friend has a few tabs) to try to get the most out of the rest of the month taking no test injections? Could I take 1/4 pill twice per week for two or three weeks then take nothing the week of the next blood test? Would that allow enough time for everything to return to normal?
This same doctor I see runs two offices, one is a medical office where I have been seeing her and the other is an anti-aging clinic which is cash only. At my next visit I am going to start seeing her in the clinic and paying cash, by doing this she says she will give me test to keep my level at 1000 (not the 800 limited by the insurance companies), hcg (which should mean I need less test right?), and anastrozle. In the medical office she can only give test. The visits will cost me $170 though rather than my $30 copay like the medical office. I am assuming it will be worth it to get on the proper combination of test, hcg, and anasrtozle?
