HCG not restoring ball size.
- 03-08-2008, 03:55 AM
I started with injections, because my doctor thought my thyroid condition was cause absorbtion issues. Plus, I'd rather shoot once a week, than slather daily. That's just me. I gave myself allergy shots through college, so no big thing.
I've never heard about the hCG monotherapy, except for attempted re-start. I can appreciate sticking with it, if it works reasonably quick and there are advantages. But if I were you, I'd want to just get to it, at this juncture. For me, I was feeling so badly, I didnt want to mess around. At some juncture, I may think about switching over, to try the monotherapy, but I dont want to rock the boat, for now. Why are you torn?
Hope you start feeling even better, soon.

I was also anticipating doing injections instead of cream when starting T, so that also gave me some pause. However, after speaking with doc I feel better. We will watch DHT (which he thinks is a little too low for me right now and thus, the cream) and if it gets out of control we can always switch. He assured me he has many patients on both (cream and inject) and all pros and cons are constantly assessed. He also instructed me to apply cream to small, hairless area (like inner upper arms) to reduce aromatization and conversion. Said hair areas convert much higher than hairless areas.
I guess I'll give it a go.

A few months ago I started back at a much lower dose and achieved decent levels (TT 957 and FT 233) within 6 weeks. This time my protocol included 2000 IUs of HCG per week, 1.5 grams of Arimidex per week, 25 mg of Progesterone and 75 mg of DHEA daily. I recently started a three day split and would like to move to 1000 IUs EOD. That will depend on my lab results.

I dont think many 50 year olds (or any other age, for that matter) would be complaining about pressing 225 for sets of 5 (at your weak point), dude. You're pretty damn strong.

Currenly I am EOD system
0.38cc liquid Anastrozole on day of shot, 0.38*7/2=1.33 Arimidex/week
750iu hcg on days between shots, last week and half, previously 375iu.
Middle of February08 I have made major reshuffling on my supplements and started the feeling that I am drifting out of steady state that I felt before. About two weeks ago I changed from 375iu hcg first to 500iu then to 750iu/EOD.
Chassing my E2 I changed liquid Anastrozole from 0.33*7/2=1.155cc/week to current 1.33
Slight improvement not much.
My testicles feel as if (possibly) litle bit firmer, but scrotum is much tighter now than before. I do not have a time when scrotum would be fully relaxed. Sex is back from 3/week to hardly 2/week, much less intensity.
Wonder what to think about?
I have already e-mailed my doc, asking for blood work script.
Hopefully within 2 weeks will have more concrete info.
Just trying to figure some reasonable guesses.
Mainly I am thinking about HCG.
I have supply of 1500iu ampoules.
They can easyly be divided to 3-500iu or 2-750iu shots.
Wonder which one to pick.
