Actually maybe I just need a new Doctor ...
39 years old with several pro-hormone cycles under my belt and a couple of 12 week test cycles 1-2 years ago. Was a complete fatass until about 4+ years ago and got down to 12% with diet and lots of exercise (plus a few of the hormonal cycles). Haven't been feeling myself lately even though I was doing pretty good for a while post PCT. Hurt my back and the workouts faded for a while, put on weight and felt like ****. Been working to get back into shape and have been steadily going to the gym mixed with low carb to hopefully lean up some.
Went to an endo for testing and my test level came back at 380, but my free test was below average range (don't have the paperwork with me). At the appt where the Dr gave me my blood test results he took more blood for further tests and went ahead and gave me 250mg of Test cyp to see if I felt a difference. Of course I did. On follow up visit a month later, Dr. said second test came back as 500 and the free test was in range. blood was taken pre-testosterone injection and when he gave me the results he said I was normal and didn't need any further injects. I re-explained the symptoms I was having and let him know that the testosterone injection helped so he reluctantly gave me another injection and scheduled me for monthly injects in his office and a 3 month follow-up.
I was hoping to reduce some costs (my screw-up looking back) and called to see if they would just prescribe for self injects. I got a call back saying I was normal and don't need to come back. I am pretty frustrated because even with the one shot a month for the last 2 months I was feeling some improvements in both the gym and everyday life.
Do I accept that I am "normal" based on the second test or find another doc more liberal? I might look into a compounding pharmacy to see what they have to say, but now I have been on 250mg of test at 1 shot/month for the last 2 months almost and don't know what direction to go.
Sorry for the long post.
