    This is one of the reasons why I won't go on it unless absolutely necessary. Call me a chicken but I'll boost my test up some with oral supps but that's about it.

    Higher doses does not equate to TRT. Going on TRT and keeping your levels in range over the long term, and you won't run into problems.

    Do you inject the hcg while frozen? That might shrink your balls too.

    I hold the syringe in my hand until it thaws.

    Exactly. Many people on TRT are just running low dose cycles claiming to be on replacement therapy. This will undoubtedly create unwanted attention down the road for many of us who truly need it.
    Remember why you started.

    For someone who just started TRT (cream initially), this thread was very informative. Two sort of related questions, do you guys who've been on TRT a while still take supplements? Now that I started TRT, my thought is most of the **** I bought over the years is pointless. Obvious exceptions are protein and regular vitamins (fish oil, vitamin d, etc.).

    Thanks for all the great info, if this forum wasn't around I don't know what I'd do. It is crazy in my opinion that people who are on TRT have to hide away on a forum to talk about it rather than have amazing public information, but hey steroids are evil right? </sarcasm>.

    I take supplements still, but none obviously related to test.

    Noots:
    Aniracetam
    Bacopa
    Alpha-GPC

    Overall health:
    Cycle Assist (just added this to take the place of all the individual body support I was taking. Hawthorne, Milk thistle, nettle, etc)
    Fish Oil
    L-Citrulline (not consistently)

    I was running Erase and Endosurge still, like I have for years, but recently stopped because I just didn't see a need anymore.

    I no longer take test boosting supplements, but since I have high SHBG I use supplements to try to increase free testosterone. I also use supplements to try to keep estradiol under control.

    .......hmmmmm...... .......don't most test boosting supplements have ingredients that lower estradiol and SHBG?

    That sounds very good to me. Mine is usually in the 60-80 range leaving me with low free test.

    Awesome. I will have new labs this upcoming week. I suspect they will be good.
