    Low TESTOSTERONE even on injections!! HELP!!


    I started another thread a while back, but it seemed like the responders were puzzled just as much as I was. My total testosterone was around 300 ng a while back, so i started androgel, which did not work for me.

    My endo then recommended injections (100 mg test cyp every 7 days). For the first 3 weeks, I felt amazing. However, I could tell a difference during week 4 and 5 of my injections. I assumed it was estrogen related, but i have a relatively low bf (12%), and i had absolutely no symptoms of elevated e.

    The day I was supposed to receive my 6th injection, I had blood work drawn that only checked for total testosterone. My total testosterone level was 240!! From reading numerous posts, I have noticed that other men on trt are achieving much higher testosterone levels while taking 100mg of test cyp a week.

    I use a 25 g thin wall needle and inject into my mid outer thigh. WHAT is causing my body not to accept the testosterone? I feel absolutely no difference throughout the week (NO highs or lows).

    Also: I have noticed that when i use 23g normal wall needles, i seem to feel a difference in by bodys reaction to the testosterone, but when i use the 25g thin wall needles, i do not FEEL the testosterone at all.

    PLZ HELP!

    100mg isn't much, I would expect like 300-600 range from that. Is it prescription test? Could be bunk/underdosed.

    Multi shots may be the best approach.

    That is weird. The gauge of the pin will not matter.

    Yes do 2 shots a week. I have the same problem..150mg a week and by the end im down to 250.
    If your levels of SHBG are normal then your body just uses the test.
    Also, check your Free T. Testosterone levels might be low but free T could be normal unless you have symptoms.
    also check your E2. Keep it low it makes a difference
