You're going to need a doctor who will prescribe follow up blood tests and Arimidex if there is any E2 feedback.

So I got the result I wanted and saved alot of $$$ besides.
So make sure you also measure that which you will no longer have to buy!

New to this board so, hi everyone.
Dr. John is a DO and has a clinical practice specializing in male HRT. Unless things have changed, Nick Delgado is a PhD, not a medical doctor and cannot prescribe medication.
My Doc. is a DO and like Dr. John, a member of the Academy of Anti-Aging Medicine. (A4M)
As I recall, Dr. John has found that supplemental testosterone produces more favorable results than HCG alone as far as how his patients feel, even though both may produce the same T level when measured by labs. He prefers HCG as an adjunct to testosterone.
One can obtain good T #’s with Clomid alone but, its side effects are not acceptable.
I use 250IU of HCG 2 days per week prior to my Test injection. HCG acts as an analog of LH and signals the testes to produce testosterone. It will not increase endogenous production of LH.
My insurance covers HCG. A vial of Novarel costs me about $10. Oddly, Abraxis costs $12.

Being secondary you are in position to benefit from this approach.
For reason that I am not able to explain, everybody else (if they are lucky) are offered testosterone and sometimes little bit of HCG as an after-thought, regardeles, primary or secondary.
Possibly this type of TRT have its roots in steroids use and follows similar practice, except that it replaces steroids with bio-identical testosterone and phisiological levels of it.
Yours, Cenegenics doctor aproaches problem as if you were attempting to father a child (minus HMG).
He probably also uses testosterone if his patient is primary.

When I was taking exogenous I preferred injections to transdermal. That will be my method if I ever need to supplement. I would probably try subq delivery using smaller amounts more frequently.

Thank you colkurtz_spf
Thank you jinxie
Just two of you, out of hundrets posting, hopefully someone else, on HCG alone, will chime in.
Yes, I feel there is a pressure around here for testosterone use when facing hypogonadism.
I bet 90% guys under 30 and 80% under 40 are secondaries.
Majory should be using HCG.
Next time you guys are talking to your doctors,
please ask for those proportions, mine are just preliminary guesses.

Absolutely. Dr. John (aka SWALE, when he was posting on T-Nation and SBI) always emphasized that EVERY BODY responds differently. He mentioned that he had a couple of patients on HCG alone and doing fine. Overall, he prefers the combo.
After reading my first post, I realize that I was stating some things that are obvious to you vets here. Didn't mean to sound preachy.
