Go back on the sustaon, ask for e2w shots, split the shots up into .5 mL ew (e2w is approved as protocol with primoteston, perhaps not sustanon if you’re doc is fickle with outdated guidelines)
This way you’ve got 125mg weekly to play around with
You’re going to get a huge “you’re doctor should be shot blablabla” in response… people tend to be somewhat hysterical about bad protocols… sure, the gel is expensive and doesn’t have the highest rate of patient satisfaction, but it’s simple to apply and hasn’t a high rate of compliance (BUT it does present serious risks regarding cross contamination towards partners and/or kids, and the “don’t exercise for at least X hours of administration… nor can you shower” is irritating)
Truth is however, many go on 250mg e2w and feel fine, many sustain on gels and feel fine (note fine and optimal are two very different facets) but 250mg e2w feels a hell of a lot better than a TT of 7nmol… for most
Yes, the peaks are higher, but you probably won’t develop polycythemia from such a dosage, it’s possible… but I’d garner it’s the minority, not the majority that develops this on said protocol… and medical literature would back me up here
Start with once weekly shots, if that doesn’t work (or TT/FT is still too low… I’d actually say start with 150, but it’s difficult to get decent HRT dosages prescribed nowadays) try 2x weekly (dose split up to .25 ml per shot, sus has test prop in it, pharmacokinetics dramatically differ from other forms of esterified test in the preparation)… primoteston or test cyp is optimal, but sus works too.
How’s you’re lifestyle? Are you overweight/obese or reasonably fit/average
