    switching from transdermals to injections


    Are there any common recommendations or guidelines when switching from transdermals to injections?

    Or can you simply just switch up? For example, the day you plan on switching, don't apply (and discontinue) gel and do IM injection...

    I was switching from Tcream to injectins over year and half ago.
    Reason for switching,
    very high DHT and I was not able to achieve proper FreeT or BAT levels.

    I was able to achieve my goals with one initial estimated T dose and one more fine tune correction latter on.

    I decided on EOD schedule.
    Day1 T-shot
    Day#2 500iu HCG

    I would draw blood 48 hrs after the T shot.

    I use Quest Diagnostics tests, blood drawn at Quest.
    These tests:

    Estradiol, Ultrasensitive, LC/MS/MS (30289X)
    Testosterone, Free, Bio/Total (LC/MS/MS)
    Dihydrotestosterone (204X)

    My goal is to have
    BAT~575 (top range) (BioAvailableTestosterone)
    DHT~top range or slightly over
    E2 (15-30) fine tuned by nightly wood

    I also check my fatty acids, probably due to this at the moment I do not have to use
    Arimidex=Anastrozole=Liquidex
    I used small amounts, and ended with too low E2.

    I used my SHBG to figure out my initial T dose.
    I created table that have given me approximate relation between
    SHBG and my required Testosterone dose.
    That table is on my post #40

    I use smallest available needle for all my T & HCG & B12 shots.
    The needle that is normally advised is 30x larger in volume, no thanks.
    I shoot this small needle everywhere under any angle, very easy shots.

    Thanks JanSz...

    I'm still confused on what the proper procedure to switch is though... just stop the daily gel and start the weekly shots.. that's it?

    Today you put on transdermal.
    Tommorow have your first T injection on EOD schedule.
    If you have low T levels and that is your reason for switching,
    using T shot as calculated for EOD schedule, do that shot for three days in the row, then (first) HCG shot, then continue with normal EOD schedule, alternating T & HCG shots.
