    Welcome...I'm new to AM as a poster but have gained a ton of valuable info from this site. I'm 38 so I shouldn't be reading about all the youth on here and their feats of strength....but it's motivating for sure.

    Thanks guys! I've been on here since I was in my late 20s, but started TRT at ~30 so I feel like I hit old age a lot sooner than now haha..But honestly I'm feeling like I"m back in my early 20s again from all the lifestyle changes combined with TRT. Hopefully I can share some knowledge I've gained over the past 5-6 years.

    I'm about the same. Recently I started 40mg of test prop eod, so that's about 120mg per week, but a bit higher due to it being prop and not cyp. I'm normally using about 100-140mg per week and I'm using aromasin as an AI. 12.5mg everyday or eod, depending how I feel. Using less aromasin with the prop though. I stopped using HCG a year ago due to E2 sides. I'm also in no rush for kids (not married).

    Thanks, yeah I like it here. It was my first bodybuilding/training/fitness forum I'd ever signed up on back in 07, and something's kept me coming back. I've seen a lot of changes and people come and go, but there's always a good handful of really knowledgeable people here.

    I concur. Many people I've interacted with here have been extremely helpful with real issues.

    How's the ride been on HRT? Been about 4 years for me now since I've started. My first time pinning was for TRT. Was using creams for a while but prefer EOD shots with just a bit of cream once in a while for DHT and transdermal DHEA daily use. I'm also using 25mg HC daily. Without that, I'd be a zombie and falling asleep all afternoon, not to mention, very shaky after workouts.

    96 ng/dl is a dark dark place. After my last (and final) Epi cycle, and after a properly designed pct, my total was 60ng/dl. Took a lot of energy to not cry everyday. Out of control emotions and depression. I don't wish that on anybody.

    Mine was 78. Could not hardly stay awake even in the doctors office waiting. PCT always looked good but the numbers never reflected it.
    Remember why you started.

    My old urologist had me at 221 ng/dl, that was lower than the 230 ng/dl I had when I started TRT. I went to see my sons urologist with old blood work in hand. He had me stop the test E for two weeks and retest, after I recieved his call to start at 1 cc/200 mg. unless he changes the dose. That was a lot of dark days in a row, my emotions just went mute and the depression was out of control. I told the guys at work and my boss that I was okay except I had an inner ear issue and I was on meds to clear it up. I got the call and after work, I couldn't get home fast enough to take the injection.! Once you have been there, you never want to go back it's rough to be at rock bottom.

    Quite a humbling experience. Words can't really describe it, but if you've been there......
    When I was that low and super depressed, I actually started writing about all the unpleasantries in my life starting from childhood. I was up to 15 pages and left it to be continued. Since being on TRT, I have not wished to relive any of those memories, nor continue my writings.
    But always one to end on a positive--- it was very interesting to delve into the depths of my brain and past memories in that aspect. But once is enough for me, forever.
    Reasurring to hear other people have been to the depths of their own personal hell as I was.
    Onward and upward.

    I had been there once myself when I ran out of test/hcg once. I literally had to shake the bad thoughts out of my head and keep telling myself it's from the low test and to stop thinking in such a negative way. I never wish to feel that way again.

    My only regret about TRT is that I should have started many many years earlier (in my 20s). I had so many ups and downs, my life was a bit of a mess then and I feel as though I wasted much of my prime years in life. I used to think about that a lot and it was depressing. Now I only look to the future.
