I don't get why people say it takes weeks to feel test-c. I beg to differ, but that's a different conversation.

    This almost feels like a support group, hahaha.
    Lol...I guess it kind of is!

    Itchiness seems to be retiring a bit in the nips.

    Thinking I may order some liquidex. Anyone ever used this from an RC company?

    It was last fall during normal trt at 50mg twice a week. I didn't measure the amount of liquidex correctly, and it messed me up pretty good after the first few hours and lasted a couple weeks. If you measure correctly, and extremely accurate, it's very very effective. More so than the pills.

    Thanks man. Can't decide if I should do bloodwork, then order if needed....or just order...
    You still feeling okay with just the erase? Every few days I just get nervous that it isn't strong enough.

    Up to a naked 188/ 189. Starting to see the weight move more on the scale. Regardless, I'm pleased with things as week 6 comes to a close. Was planning on doing 10 weeks, but I have the extra gear to take it out to 12-14. Thoughts on that?
    Thought about taking a couple months then doing something like epi or hdrol and using the extra test as a base.

    Those of you that have/ are going to blast...how long do you go?

    I was originally going to just do 10, but I have enough to do 14-15 weeks.

    My back has horrible acne right now...so that's a little discouraging give warmer weather is on the way!

    I am going to go ten weeks then get blood work two weeks later to see where I am at. I may go a little longer but this is my first time going up in my dosage so we will just have to see.

    When blasting 500mg/week, what should total and free testosterone numbers be on average after the 6th week?

    Hit send before I was finished.

    Strength and reps are all increasing. Hit 225x 16 on flat bench today during a chest/ back superset workout, so that was a nice pump!

    I must be getting a lot thicker than I realize. My mom was over at the house a couple days ago to watch my daughters while the wife and I went out and she mentioned I look much thicker in the upper body--then immediately asked what I was taking...to which I replied "creatine". Lol

    I'm on week 4 of my blast, and have zero acne at 500mg/week + a few pumps of Androgel 1.62% every week. Is this unusual? No acne, no nipple sensitivity whatsoever, no mood changes, no bloating, no hair loss, sex drive is fine. I feel about the same as my regular trt dose of 100mg/week. I get blood tested next week.

    You seem to be looking for negatives and/or adverse effects. Not everybody has bad effects. Any positives to report?

    Oh snap, maybe you're just lucky then. Orrrrr, maybe your body is meant to handle that dose. If you don't have any negative sides, seems like RBC would be the only major concern at this point. How long have you been on TRT?

    Until I started posting on here, I had never heard of anyone caring about RBC on TRT and I've known people on it for years. Like I mentioned, my doctor thinks it is blown out of proportion and the risks aren't as high as made out. Even the endos I talked to in my search didn't care about it and wouldn't order the test unless I asked.

    I love the education and view points on here, though.

    My concern was more geared toward the blasting part, not the TRT part. With TRT it's not a real concern, but when elevating the dose to supraphysiological levels, it may become a concern. That's all I was trying to say.

    Oh, gotcha.

    Speaking of, I would be interested in seeing that number from those of you that do blast. I know someone posted it here, but I wonder how it compares from those running 300 to those at 400 or 500 a week.

    I've been on trt a year, only thing I've noticed while blasting is an intolerance for energy supplements. Makes my blood pressure skyrocket.

    How do you guys manage to get the extra prescription test for the blast? I administer my own shots, but my script covers just enough for my weekly doses only.

    That's the secret of ugl's...

    Edit.. but my nurse does the work, the endo just signs. She put 6 refills on instead of 3 so I just paid cash for them, $110 each instead of using insurance

    My doc prescribed me 100mg week as a therapy dose. When I go to get it filled they fill it with 4 200mg individual amps. So, I can use two per month instead of four. I just stocked up the extra until I had enough for a cycle.

    My doc thinks I use 150 a week instead of 100, so I have two extra vials at this point.

    I'm on 200/wk. I may have to think about that strategy.

    i switched doctors and brought my own copies of labwork with me. I told the doctor I was on 200mg per week when I take half that. I also said I had liver issues and that I throw out vials 30 days after I open them as a precaution. He wanted to see me again in six months, so he gave me a script for six refills of 2000mg/10mL testosterone cypionate. I will have 9 grams stockpiled by the end of the month. I have never blasted before, but when I start blasting and cruising I won't have to save up in order to blast for a while.

He wanted to see me again in six months, so he gave me a script for six refills of 2000mg/10mL testosterone cypionate. I will have 9 grams stockpiled by the end of the month. I have never blasted before, but when I start blasting and cruising I won't have to save up in order to blast for a while.
    Man that's awesome, I wonder if it would work with my doc? Haha doc my liver hurts, can I have more test vials please?

    Well, I backed up my claims with labs showing highly elevated ALT and AST levels. I was using "Epi-Strong" at 45mg/day at the time of the draw. Next time I run an oral I plan on using UDCA as support, but at least some good came from that episode.

    Received some liquid stane (exemestane) in the mail today.
    Think I will dose it 12.5mg EOD for the remainder of blast. Sound about right my friends?

    That's a typical dosage but everyBODY is different. Listen to yours and see what's best. For me, I didn't need it that often, made me too dry.

    Week 4 and I'm up 20lbs! I'm very happy with the results I'm getting, and no bloat! A little lethargy but that's about it!
