Ive been on TRT for almost 2yrs and am just now feeling my best. I started out with 100mg test cyp every 2 wks but started on the roller coaster. Then I asked if HCG would boost my levels. My test levels got in the 700 range, but I still wasnt feeling right. I freaked and got put on test cyp 150mg every 10days, and felt much better. This last month I added 100mg DHEA, and have never felt better. My question is, should I have stuck with the HCG and if so can I now go back down that road. I ask because im unsure if I want to be on test shots the rest of my life. Here was my last test results 2 months ago:
DHEA-S 190ug/dL range: 280-640
Estradiol: 15pg/mL range: <29
Tot. Testosterone: 668ng/dL
Free Test: 145.8 range: 29-188
SHBG: 15.9nmol/L range: 13-71

It is hard to interpret your results, you did not described when you draw blood in relation to your T shot.
then table in my post #40 here:
Jan's BloodTest April13/2007
line with SHBG closest to yours:
130 946 16.7 300 x27.3 250
You need 130mg/week testosterone.
You divide the dose and do shots E3D, once every three days.
Assume you are using 200mg/mL testosterone
=130/7*3/200=0.2785~28 units on insuline syringe
Each shot 28 units
Do also HCG 250iu on days between T shots
Blood draw must be done on the day of the T shot, time of the shot, before shot (religiously).
The dose I calculated for you is approximate, do blood test in 6 weeks to 3 months,
using dr Shippen chart on post #41
Your current every 10 days shots put your body thru rollercoaster, bad news.
Use as much DHEA pills as need to bribg your DHEAs level to top range.
Do much more testing.
For suggestions look at my post #44

I will start doing E3D shots which comes out to 50mg test cyp per shot. Will make appt. as soon as I can and retest. Will also bring with me A4M white paper for him to look over.

Been reading over Dr. Johns protocal and this is what i have concluded; if i switched to a gel or cream i would start at 5mg/day on the 7th day after my last test cyp shot. I will also incorporate HCG 250-500iu q3d. i will retest levels in two weeks. The levels i posted at the top of the page are where ive felt the best, aside from DHEA, so i will shoot for same numbers. I see my endo on the 20th, and will bring some medical documents for him to look over.
