I actually liked using Testim / Androgel. I then switched to Test Cyp. IM's .
My new insurance only pays for Androderm [patches] which suck! GOD I hate those things..plus I don't feel as good as I was on Testim/Androgel. I am working to get the test cyp. back tho.
I found being on Androgel and then Testim my levels never got past 600. I had a lot of joint and muscle pain the T from gels was not supporting my joints and muscles. I switched to Test C shots ended up doing 150 mgs a week then added HCG to the mix. My joint and muscle pain was gone but E2 went nuts.
So today I do Test C shots every 3 days and HCG the day before the Test C shot. This keeps me leveled helps keep E2 down and helps keep blood thinner.
