    How to read this syringe ?


    I'm on my third testosterone e injection for trt, 50mg twice a week and wanted to make sure I was reading the syringe correctly. They are 20gauge needles, and go up to 3. I use 1.5, would that equal 50mg?

    What does the bottle say? Usually 200mg per 1cc or ml. One half cc would be 100mg. 20guage needle is big.

    Yup, looks like I've been injecting 100mg twice a week instead of 50mg... I was feeling great too! I injected 50mg last night, hopefully I don't see too much of a difference. I'm definitely feeling a MUCH lower sex drive that's for sure. I don't go for my first blood test on injections until late March, I wonder if my doc would agree to put me on 75mg - 100mg twice a week instead since I felt so much better? Monday will be my 6th injection, still no problems, no swollen or itchy nipples. Any of you guys use 100mg twice a week for TRT?

    If i am reading this right, your syringe reads up to 3ml. As emantest stated, usually test is 200mg per ml. So, if your test is 200mg per ml, then 1.5ml in your syringe would be 300mg of test e.

    Oh, ok. In that case, if your test e is 200mg per ml, then .5 would equal 100mg of test e.

    .25 would equal 50mg. Again, this is assuming that yours is 200mg per ml.

    I'm gonna miss the 100mg twice a week... 50mg just isn't the same, at all... They are sending me smaller syringes though, my doc's nurse said she ordered the 20 gauge by accident, and they're too big. The size of the needle didn't bother me, but I would prefer not to leave a mark like that every time I inject! haha Will things get better on the 50mg twice a week injections? Any chance I'll respond like I did to the 100mg twice a week injections? Will my body adjust? I feel like saving up vials for weeks until I have enough to inject 100mg twice a week.. It brought my sex drive back 100%, could get an erection at the drop of a hat, would wake up EVERY morning with a hard on that took a while to go away. Before I would get a morning erection once a week at best. At 50mg I'm better than I was without TRT, but at 100mg I was optimal! How should I approach my doc about this the next time I see him? I started TRT to optimize my health/enjoyment of life, and I would like to feel awesome no matter what my testosterone level is, or what mg I'm taking.

    Lab results first. Mine ordered 100mg per week as well but I have been doing a 100mg every 4 days, and I too feel solid with that dose.

    The 20g syringes don't bother me, but I would prefer a smaller one. The pharmacy gave me 25g syringes today, and when I got home I noticed they were only 5/8" long! I inject in my quads, and have no fat there, so would the 5/8" be sufficient? I want a smaller syringe, but I don't want to draw with one needle and inject with another. What is the smallest needle I can draw and inject with? 23g?

    You can draw with the 25g but will take a bit to pull up. I draw with a 18g and inject with a 23 or 25.
