  3. Yeah I'm just hoping low levels like that after 8 months don't look suspect. Does that seem like to dramatic of a change

    The doc will most likely just bump up your test dosage. Also, tell the doc you have been running a lot. A LOT

  5. Running drops T?

    Well, i have read that it can put enough stress in the body to cause it to drop, plus my TRT doc says that the military has such a large population of guys with low T, they are still investigating why, but the training and all the gosh damn running can very well be the cause.

  7. Yeah I doubt my doctor knows jack about any of that lol. Hopefully hr just ups my script

  8. These doctors nowadays... Ha

  9. Yeah its my primary care physician so he's clueless

    Not only that, but my endocrinologist is as well...

  11. I'm sure doctors fresh out of medical school are more educated on this subject. Some of these fossils are new to this type of treatment and don't have all the facts. I need to get me a doogie howser Dr.

    I just take the rx from him and figure out the rest on my own. They thought I was crazy when I asked about dulling the needle from the vial rubber. Never mind, I will just get more needles on my own...

    So maybe you know a bit more about this than i do, what kind of sides or precautions should one take if they add test e to TRT to total 500 mg a week? I am debating it in a few months, but want to make sure I don't fuk something up.

    Should be OK with just an AI. You will learn to feel E2 high/low unless you get frequent bloods. I gained hella strength at 500/wk. Didn't use an AI too much so I ballooned up like a fat kid. But all's well that ends well

  15. Not to sound stupid but what's an AI?... I don't want to be a fat kid

    Aromatase Inhibitor,
    Exemestane, Arimidex, letrozole, torem...., something

    I am no expert on the subject, so either somebody will chime in and tell you all about it or you should do some research. Research either way, plenty of info in this board and on the net

  18. I like exemestane but I've never tried arimidex

  19. Here's what I do, my Rx has gone up to 300mg/wk this way, and that's plenty for me at my age and for my goals: about 2 weeks before twice a year labs, I start a taper down to about 140 mg per week. I do my injections 3x per week, and skip the one before the blood is drawn so I get it a good "Trough". The doctor see's I'm at high levels but still physiological levels, prescription stays at 300mg a week, and everyone's happy. The funny look from the pharmacist is responded by me with "doc says I'm a fast metabolizer." I also get Arimidex and hCG by prescription. Took a few years to tune everything, but I'm plenty happy now.

  20. Yeah that sounds like a good plan. I'll find out what he suggests tomorrow

  21. So the doc doubled my testosterone today which is cool but my blood work came back a little janky I think probably because I was loading with a really high dose and then stopped altogether three weeks before getting my levels checked. My bad cholesterol was high (wich is weird for me) by blood protein was low and my blood pressure was through the roof. Any thoughts ?

    What were your T levels?

  23. 225 but that's because I stopped my injections all together

    My doc says that i can't legally do it at home, where do you live?
