What is Testogel Half Life?


#1

As title suggest, been on 10mg testogel.

How long would it take to clear your system? I'm guessing a week at most?

thanks

You wish it’d be a week. :slight_smile:
Gone in approximately 24 hour bro, hence the usual applying at every morning.

Edit earlier funny half time calculation: I cannot 100% confirm the half life of this one, but i think you should consider half time being 8 hours. 8h = 50%, 16 = 25%, 24 = 0%.

Raises your TT approx 8 nmol/l and is very short acting.

Or did you really mean how long exogenous testosterone in this case is detectable in which case i have absolutely no idea.

Thanks!

Reason I’m asking is I’m on 250 test e every 10 days, but i had loads of spare jells so had a little ‘blast?’ if you could call it that haha while i was cutting to maintain as much lean mass as possible…

But i have a checkup in 2 weeks, so i was going to stop the gel’s a week before to give it time to get out my system?

thanks

I’m on the same amount of sustanon every 10 days.
Have recipe left for approx 10 months worth of the gel, but i never absorped it properly i guess atleast test results seemed to suggest that.

I exactly know what you mean.

Coincidelly my dad just asked “hey have you tried gel on top of the sustanon etc?”. =) He’s 60 years now.

Idk it’s like something was different in the 80’s and nothing had consequences. He has literally never heard a thing about any ai, clomid or estrogen side effects and i know he was on d-bol, decadurabolin and sustanon back in the days and even well past his sports prime.
Somehow got my mother pregnant too while on them. Hehe. Weird world. :slight_smile:

Yeh i absorbed it okay but didn’t get me feeling great, adding it while cutting just to see if it benefits, haven’t had bloods done but held on to my mass well! haven’t had any sides apart from noticed the following

  • increased labido over usual
  • slightly increased hair growth

I increased frequency of my Ethanate to every 8 days instead of 10 which won’t make much odds, had my last jab today… So my plan was

  • have checkup 2 weeks today, in which point my Ethanate dose should have lowered enough to give a normal reading
  • drop the gel’s a week before? should be plenty for it to go out the system! could even go shorter?

Very individual thing i assume. I don’t have any means to know how fast the testosterone in the gel gets metabolized by your body. Because you use Ethanate on top of it.

I’ve always taken tests just couple days before new injection.
So with 1 shot every 10 days i’ve might taken lab test at day 7 or 8.

In reality, are you aiming for some sort of self medicated small cycle or simply after a long term trt and just messing with it a bit?
The half life of ethanate is roughly 6-7 days. Bluntly it would translate roughly like: day1 = 250mg, day7 = 125mg, day14 = 62.5mg and so on. After two weeks in theory you should still have 62.5mg left. Sounds good to me.

Edit: Fixed day14 half life amount from 65.5 to 62.5: I just can’t do simple math…
