Proper PCT for Testosterone Replacement Therapy

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. yeah whats the point of such infrequent dosing? Just give me my script for cyp and let me inject it myself 2x a week (if I were going on TRT).


  2. well, the undeconate actually keeps measurable levels that long, and it enables you do get a shot quarterly in your doctors office (presumably right after getting blood drawn for a blood test) and so you dont have to keep needles, etc around at home. Also allows for easy travelling without having to worry about transport of those items. Once it is FDA approved, i may switch to it, but i'd split the dose to at longest once every 2 weeks

He (or she!) is going to be pissed at you for doing a bodybuilding steroid cycle when they are trying to fix your problem.
    The blood tests for me are every three months. The shot for now is once a month. Ill check what the actually dose is when i go in next week. He said he wanted to start at this and will arrange it from there after the blood work. The thought has definitely occured to me and may postpone cycle ideas for a little further down the road. my thought is with the blood tests being three months apart. I get one right before the cycle and post pone the following one out an extra month giving me a month to level out during what would normally be a pct time. Nothings for sure yet though.

    And gixxer, its not that this guy himself doesn't know what he's talking about so much that his doctor doesn't know what he's doing. There are more doctors prescribing TRT who should stay the hell out of it and instead refer to specialist. There was one member here getting I think it was 600mg of cyp once a month from his endocrinologist, and was wondering why he felt like god the first week, decent the second week and part of the third, and depressed the last week of the month... At least I found a doctor whose head isn't in his ass
    Id like to think my doc knows what hes doing. The switch from androgel was very recent and still havent gotten any bloodwork done while on injection yet. He said we will move it accordingly once we get some blood work. Did you think the injection was too infrequent or the dosing seemed off?

    Is everybody against the idea of a cycle while on trt? I plan on stopping the doctor injection for the duration of the cycle. I guess i thought it was pretty common amongst the community?

  4. both the dosing amount and frequency are terrible. AVERAGE TRT prescription for enanthate is around 100-125mg per week, and that is often done as 2 shots per week. Enanthate's half life is approx 5 days, so once a month dosing is terrible for it, and it doesn't require blood work to know that.

    As far as others doing that, what you are talking about is more or less the "blast + cruise" scenario, where they use a high level of testosterone for a cycle, then go back to a maintenance/TRT dose. The problem is that without knowing all of what your doctor is trying to accomplish, and seeing all of your blood results as well its hard to say how far off trying to run a cycle can take you. Better to get the TRT working as TRT first and have stable levels to begin with before you think about destabilizing. Plus keep in mind, there is a difference between TRT for health and lifespan vs bodybuilders on the cruise part of their cycles.

  6. I'd say you guys cleaned up nicely Hopefully the OP gets more frequent shots out of this, at the very least.
