    I'll be interested to see how your experience is. Any reason you decided to do this 4 years in?

    Yes, I fill the syringe with testosterone cypionate then add HCG into same syringe.

    Started adding HCG about 2 months ago at 250 IU E3.5 days. Decided on it as my energy and libido was becoming a problem with just testosterone cypionate. Researched and found LH receptors are all over the body. HCG can help backfill other hormones.

    See above. I can tell you that my energy and libido improved within a month. Sleep and wellbeing is improved. Iím still evaluating. Only drawback is the testicular ache but thatís now subsided.
    May I suggest using this app to track your bloodwork tests:

    Weíre you on an AI before HCG? If so, have you had to change the dosage due to being on HCG? Iím going to be asking for updates from you on this. Iím contemplating adding it.

    Yes, Anastrozole at 0.25 mg E3.5 days, taken one day after testosterone cypionate injection. I expect estradiol to raise but so far I have no high estradiol sides. I plan to have bloodwork done first week of December. Will post up results in my log. Feel free to ask for updates anytime brother.

  6. 200mg Test Cyp per week
    250iu HCG 3 x week (M,W,F)
    .5mg Arimidex 3 x week (M,W,F)

    And hopefully Iíll be adding some Dermacrine this week... will start off with 2 pumps and gauge effectiveness from there.

    Really that much Arimidex? You must be a high aromatizer.

    Unfortunately, yes. But Iím also at 20+% body fat so that surely doesnít help things. Going over my 6-month blood-work with my doc here in a few hours so we will see how things are looking.

    Regardless, I plan on shredding down to at least 12% to reduce aromitization, improve insulin sensitivity, etc.

    Well, scratch that!!! Previously, on .5mg of Arimidex 48hrs after my shot, my E2 was around 48. Now, with .5mg of Arimidex 3 times a week, I crashed my E2! Doc said that I was at 5.1 or below (as they canít really test below that) so she said to back off the Arimidex completely and we will retest in 4 weeks. Damn, dialing in this whole TRT thing is way more complicated than I thought.

    It has been for me too. Don’t do what I did and continue to try to take the adex without actual blood work showing you need it. I haven’t used it in over 2 months and it’s still low. Even .25mg once a week was too much!

  11. Yeah, doc put me on it about 3 months in because my E2 kept creeping up. But I went a little overboard after I started HCG and realize that was a big mistake. Oh well, lesson learned.

    For sure it is. It took me about a year to really get dialed in.

    Thanks man. Hopefully Iíll be in the same boat as you soon!

    That would kill my e2

    It sure killed mine. Just found that out today. Dropping AI for at least 4 weeks.

  16. If it gets high again, start with .25 mgs a week and see how that does.

  17. Yep, thatís what the doc said. Listening closely to her from here on out.

    Iíve been lucky to have success with 25mg clomid every other night and .25mg anastrozole every 2-3 Days

    Been on this for about 8 months now after sparingly using only clomid for restarts

    My levels sit at 600-700 total test and 30-40 e2

    Iíve gotten e2 lower but wasnít worth the sides. Also, I️m 29 and have had low t since 22

  19. too many people reduce and crush estrogen too much. I used to be one of those. Having said that, if estrogen is too high, yes please prevent.

    Clomid made me an emotional mess dosing just like you were. I wasn’t monitoring e2 though.

    Interesting.... I wonder how many people that have sides from clomid are due specifically to high E2 vs the actual drug itself.
