    Talking just started on gear


    went to the urologist last week because I have been feeling lethargic, foggy, and lost my libido in the last year. he ran two blood workups and diagnosed me with hypogonadism and prescribed 5mg of androgel to me. told me to come back in 30 days and have more bloodwork done. started the scrip last wednesday and dont feel a thing? I heard the absorption rate for androgel was low. Is there anything i can do to improve it. BTW, my numbers were: total T 260 (300-870), free T 5.9 (9-25), normal e2, and normal prostate function. opinions? thanks

    Gear? Do BB terms really apply to androgel? Or this forum in general?

    i have never used androgel, let me make that clear. but with any transdermal product one should take a hot shower which will open the pores and clean the skin which will do the same thing. hope that helps

    thanks. I have never cycled any ph or aas at all before. Im naturally small. I was joking about gearing up because i know the androgel is not very powerful. I just want to make it back to the high normal test range for my age. cheers all

    allright. I used the androgel for the last few days and it burns my effin skin. The doc called in a new scrip for testim (5mg) a day. does that stuff use the same delivery method as androgel and is it better? thanks all

    i'm on 100mg testim type gel. Been on for about a month. Haven't done the next set of labs, nor implemented estrogen control or the hcg yet.

    But, for what its worth so far, I feel significantly different. Better mood, sleep, and my muscles feel harder.
