Well, my doc decided after a not very successful restart at 10 weeks of clomid, and levels as such:
Total T - 575
SHBG - 33
Estradiol - 6
...to put me on 5g of Androgel for 4 weeks to see "how I feel".
I asked for cypionate, but he refused, stating "its not a good idea to have the flatline levels offered by injections at your age, you need the flucuations from the short half-life by the cream"
I'm assuming my levels are going to raise shortly, then drop rapidly back to where the are or lower, while raising my estradiol and shbg further as my endogenous T shuts down. Seems like 5g is a waste of time....whatever. This is the equivalent of 50mg. This pisses me off so much...I'm sick of beating around the bush, just give me F*cking 100mg of Test Cyp so I can see if it makes me feel any better. Not guess work with absorbtion, thyroid, dosages, endogenous shutdown etc. More waiting on labs, dosages, adjusting, etc....I don't understand, plus the shots are a crap ton cheaper.
Any feedback welcome.
