    HCG vs Androgel, edema?


    I read edema is one of the listed side effects possible on Novarel. Is this edema comprable on Androgel? Is it due to increased tesosterone or some other effect?

    I can't comment about the HCG, but both the transdermal test and the injections both give me edema, more so on the injections though. I don't think it is a direct correlation with the increase in testosterone, but that you body is converting more to estrogen which caused the fluid retention.

    That's what I was thinking Jeff. Sort of like PMS bloating. I wonder if HCG causes more E2 than transdermals.
