I have been put on androgel 5g each day and personally I dont feel the results are up to par. My doctor doesn't really want to put me on injections and insisted on the androgel as a more convienent treatment. Since I have already been diagnosed with hypogonadism and have been given a prescription for androgel would it be possible to go through cenegenics and order my HRT supplies and do my own injections instead of Androgel without doing more bloodwork, and other stuff through the cenegenics lab.

Here is what happens when one starts on gels. Say your first test was 300 and you start on Androgel 5 grams. In the first week if the gel is getting through your skin your levels will shoot up. Your brain will see this and stop sending the messages to your testis to make T. So you now will fall back to above your first test or lower. This is why in the insert that comes with Andorgel to get tested again in 2 weeks. I have seen men feel dam good starting on gels only to fall way below there first test level. So after a 2 week test if your still low the best thing is to up the dose. I went from 5 grams to 10 grams and my Total T came back at 600. So after upping the dose do a blood check in 4 weeks to be sure it has your levels up if not then you need to do shots the gel is not working or getting through your skin.Originally Posted by bodybuilder8806
