    Find a doc that'll let you have injectable test. One that doesn't breathe down your neck about dosing.

    Why not try a natural test boosting supplement first? See what is available.

    What about tongkat Ali. It works for me. Black lion research is about to start selling it. I'm using there's now as a beta tester. It's good.

    Forget test boosters, it's TRT time my man.

    Go to an anti-aging clinic and get a robust regimen built around self-administered injections of testosterone cypionate and HCG. It will absolutely change your life. Been there, done that, wish I'd done it years earlier, won't ever go back. Don't mess around with creams or gels or pellets or your primary care doc, do it right.

    another option is to run clomid at 25 mgs per day for 3-6 months.
    I am currently doing this as well as running a few items like tropinol and intimidate along side to see if I can get back into the 700s before I capitulate and got full trt

    My doc doesn't like the pellets as a delivery system. The injections are the way to go. TRT is for life so as a lot of the other guys stated maybe try some other options. I have a friend on HCG monotherapy that has his numbers in the mid 6's from a low of 212. He injects 500iu 2x a week subq with a slin pin.

    I'm on 175 a week and my test is up in the 800-900 range and everything is humming along just fine.

    I tried clomid and other than being able to ejaculate like peter north I didn't notice much of a difference.

    Edit-I tried a lot of the test boosters and like the others I got a little hornier and a some skin blemishes but didn't notice any increase in the gym or in mood.

    And as far as an anti aging clinic, I agree with the other poster. That's how I started out but I felt like they were a revolving door and I didn't get much in the way of an answer as to the cause. I have good insurance so I got referred to an endo to confirm primary shutdown. I wrestled and rode bmx then motocross for years and then took up MMA. The doc asked if I ever took a good shot to the testes and I laughed. I spent half my younger life getting kicked or taking a crossrail to the nuts so yeah doc "once or twice".

    I felt better knowing I had a diagnosis. My concern was that it may have been cancer or a genetic disorder and I wanted to discount all of that.

    I eventually found a doc who was well versed in TRT and I'm sticking with him. He added Aromasin and HGC to my protocol and I'm doing great.

    "TRT is for life"... except that you can go off any time, do a PCT, and go back to whatever you have now. It's not like they fall off.

    What's the difference between the shots and pellets ? Other then I don't need to get shot in the ass every other week with the pellets. It sounds like the shots last about ten days before they fade. And the pellets last 5 months.

    Pellets have a reputation for being ineffective and painful. Shots are not bad. Plus you can titrate up and down. But first find a doc to try a clomid test. You may do fine on clomid or hcg. Trt is for life, most can't get off of it. You should also consider gel if you do not have small children.

    Dude, get some 27g insulin pins and hit your delts twice a week. Steady levels, never think about absorption or contaminating the kids

    The only doctor around that I can afford will make me come in every two weeks and give me the shoots. Or pellets every 5 months. I have little girls so the cream isn't an option.

    Well I don't know what to tell you bro. If you do injections your damn sure going to need one more often than every other week

    Between pellets and injections in-office every two weeks, my choice would be 'find another doctor'. Unless you live in the Alaskan wilderness, you can find another doctor. Besides, who wants to go in every two weeks to go get shots? And every two weeks will put you on a roller coaster. You need smaller shots every week. You are a 38 year old adult, find a doctor that treats you like one.

    Some call it doctor shopping. I call it expectations for customer service. Personally, I am 37 and bill by the hour. I would laugh in the face of any physician who told me to come in every other week.

    Sure, he can come off....only problem being is that his body swill just revert back to the baseline where he's at now....low T.

    I'd stay away from the pellets(painful, expensive, and not as efficient) and go with injections. Weekly injections. If you find a DR that prescribes bi-weekly, find another Dr. I do 200mg and an AI 2 weekly and I'm right at 1500 and feel like a million bucks.

    Be careful of the anti-aging clinics. They can be expensive and insurance may not bite. Good luck!

    That was my point. He's not losing anything by trying TRT.

    I like my clinic, for what it's worth. Not as cheap as insurance, but not outrageous, and my regular doc wasn't willing to go 200 a week plus AI and HCG, which is standard with the guys I use. I'm also right around 1500 and also feel great.

    ****, my bad! lol I misread. I'll never even think about coming off. I'm a damn different guy now. Guys need to lose the stigma with TRT and find the right Dr. It's life changing.

    I don't see anything on the paper work but the test and pins are coming to the house in 3 to 5 days. He did say something about 800 mg and he thought it would get me in the 700-800 range. But I thought liquids are measured different. I guess I will call in the morning to double check dosage. When I talked to him he was super cool and willing to play with the dose and timing. Hopefully this gets me up and going agian.

    Of course you can. When doing the self injections, 1 thing that has helped stop any PIP is to go slow with the injection. If I pin and just plunge hard and fast i get sore as hell the next day or 2. Go slow!

    I felt a little difference the day after my first shot. But normally it shows up in 5 -7 days, you will notice a little more energy and drive, then at 4-5 weeks you will know that it's working. I draw with a 18g needle and inject with a 25g needle, everyone has their way of doing it. Wipe the spot with an alcohol wipe, wait till it dries, draw and switch to the smaller gauge needle, allow one drop of the testosterone to run down the needle and into my delt it goes. I have injected with both 5/8 and 1" for me there isn't much difference going in. I like the delts over anywhere, but I have injected biceps, pecs...calves, but only once I shot the the upper leg...felt like I got hit with a baseball bat the next day. The more you inject the easier it will become.....the results.....priceless.!!!

    I have not heard of anyone having these problems with pharmaceutical testosterone. There are risks when injecting underground products, but as long as you keep sterile (wipe the top of the vial with alcohol pad and your injection area and let dry, don't reuse pins etc.) you should be fine.

    I have not had headaches or sore joints and inject twice a week sub-Q and once IM.

    Got a friend that does pellets. He claims that a 3000mg pellet keeps his T levels at 1000 for the first 2 months and then tapers down a bit on the third. He likes em..

    As I understand it, hCG can desensitized the leydig cells over time. Are you guys who take hCG not concerned about that?

    Yeah only if ur running high doses. When on cycle, hcg doesnt cause any more desensitization than the T is already doing.

    100iu daily or 250iu twice weekly isnt going to desensitize the leydig cells WHILE CYCLING steroids.

    Hi,
    Had my test, was 278, my Dr. prescribed Androderm 19.5 mg , delivery of 4mg / day ,( patch ) had a retest after 3 months range is 470 now. I would prefer the injectable as the patch burns the hell out of my skin , I mentioned to my Dr. , and her reply was " I can discontinue " . Do you think a specialist would be more approachable ?

    I wouldn't say it's too high if you feel good and your E2 levels are good and you aren't experiencing negative sides. Test is more than just about a number. I'm hovering around 1400-1500 and my doc is keeping it there for now but we are keeping a close eye on my hematocrit. I feel like a million bucks. Some would say that's too high but the rest looks good and I go back in 2 weeks. What did he do to your dose?

    I agree with 100%. Hell, I talked my doc into twice a week when I was on replacement! Even weekly gives too much inconsistency, at least with cyp. You can get away with weekly for enanthate, but bi-weekly is futile.
