Testosterone Advice needed
My name is Chris. This is the first time I have been on this site so bear with me. I am 37 and my test count is 72. I have been seeing a urologist for the past year. I was doing a 2cc injection every month for six months. I think the highest my level got was 213. I switched jobs and lost my ins. I went back a month ago and he gave me Axiron to try for a month. It didn't bring my level up any. I am now doing a 1cc injection every 2 weeks. I just started Saturday. I was wondering if I can use the axiron and injections at the same time/ or does anyone have an idea of a supplement that I can get to help me.

You need to be more specific. 1cc of what? Testosterone enanthate? Testosterone cypionate? What is the dosage? Report this number in milligrams.
I suggest injecting more frequently. 50mg testosterone e/c twice a week is a common and effective plan.
Has your doc ever tested you for estradiol? Provide labs so smarter people than me can help you.
I would not recommend taking both your testosterone and Axiron at the same time. You can find a dose of injectable testosterone that will address many of your issues.
Also, the fact that you have not gotten this close to sorted out with your urologist in year's time suggests to me that your doctor is worse than useless or you are not educating yourself. Consider firing him and doing some reading about TRT on your own.

If you're talking testosterone injections, no point in doing axiron and injecting. Axiron isn't that great anyways. I'd find a doc that will put you on cyp, twice a month.

Twice a week would be fantastic but if it's a TRT prescription good luck.Originally Posted by Pericles
Even if his doc is willing to give him everything to do it at home it wouldn't be a high enough dose to be worth pinning twice a week.
Seems the most common is 200mg every two weeks.
I would certainly find a way to acquire more and add to that if it were me though.
I'm running 500mg/week lol.

That is what he put me on Testosterone cypionate 1cc every 2 weeks. The vial size is 300 mg but I don't have it with me to tell you how much test is actually in. I have thought about going to another doctor because as you stated he is pretty worthless. I think we need to get more agressive with my treatment. It is not affecting my sex life. i'm just worn out all the time. Are there any supplements at *** etc. That I can start taking that work in the meantime ?

My friend, the smart folks here (not me) need to see the details of your most recent labs to assist you. Without that information they are flying blind.

is there a big difference between for example pinning test 120 1x/week vs 60 2x/week? I'm talking for trt, I realize the mg's aren't "cycle" levels

I believe more frequent injections help keep your e2 levels balancedOriginally Posted by threeFs

Plus, more frequent pinning leads to more scar tissue build up, which isn't a good thing.
That's one reason why I believe most docs have pin schedules like they do.

I just now used a 29g 1/2 inch syringe in my quad area for the first time. It took several minutes to draw .4 ml of Test Cyp due to the heavy consistency and about 45 seconds to push it into my quad. Very minor discomfort and just a tiny drop of blood. Thanks for the tip gents!

I use a 31G 5/16" needle for both my IM injections of TE and my SQ injections of HCG. It just takes longer to draw the oil into a syringe with a smaller needle. Other than that, all is well.

Dude, 21g is considered a harpoon these days. Get some 25 or 27g. You will love it compared to those 21sOriginally Posted by threeFs

Well now that you mention it... Thanks I will look into it. But 21g is what I grew up on, if you know what I mean. So never thought of an alternative until nowOriginally Posted by tenntarheel

First of all, everyone is bickering so much they stepped right over the OP's question. Quit derailing with Dick measuring...
If that's the case, do not take anything else hormonal because this will skew you're results and in the long run set you back. People often times are intimidated by they're doctors and won't speak up, don't be that guy. The next time you go over your results in a completely respectful manner ask him what he plans to do with such low levels. Ask him his treatment plan for you to get you higher.
Even if he is going off of symptoms vs numbers which some doctors do, let him know you are still experiencing extreme fatigue and whatever else you're feeling. Remember you're the customer essentially and without being outspoken your doctor may not know what you expect.
If it doesn't get any better let us know there are other options like anti aging clinics.You have to pay much more attention to your own levels this way though and it would be best to get it figured out with your Dr.
