    Odd question: Is gear transdermal?


    So sick of injects! LOL

    Let's say I want to pull out 1ml of test prop or tren ace (no long esters of course) and I rub this 1ml in liberally. Will it be absorbed? I know you lose 50% as it's being administered transdermally but is this possible?

    Thank you.

    There are ways to convert it to transdermal......but damn that's a waste of gear! I say suck it up and keep pinning....you made a commitment when you started the cycle.

    woah kinda harsh before it was edited.


    I'd stick with pinning. You can get some of it into your system transdermally and even some of the esters may be absorbed orally but there is little data on this. How much longer are you on cycle?

    Yes, I saw it prior to being edited. As far as being called a *** for not pinning.........I'm over 40 and have ran MANY a cycle and have pinned myself a TON.

    I just want to take th next year (or hell, even the next cycle) OFF from pinning. That's all. For me, I never "get used" to pinning. I am just not a fan.

    So, if I rub the stuff into the skin, will it work. Just looking for an answer,not a discussioin of IF I should inject or not. Thank you.

    It's not that wild of a question. I knew a guy who mixed stuff up with DMSO and claimed he was absorbing it. I don't know where he got the ratios or how he was so sure, but either it worked as he claimed, or he wasted a lot of money and smelled like a walking turd for a while!

    It doesn't really have to man. I have followed quite a few people doing TRT with a slin pin, just shooting it like an IM injection, and their levels are as predicted, and stable.

    I have done it in my delts, bi's, tri's, quad, etc with a slin pin. Also sub q on the stomach.

    Your obviously not going to want to shoot large amounts like this though. So if you need to get 1cc in, splitting it into 2 spots may be ideal.

    What dosage are you shooting for?

    WOW.This could prove to be helpful as heck for me.

    To answer your question, I am only trying to inejct 1 cc at a time.

    The concern I have, as stated above, is if I will actually even hit muscle (or that it falls short and ends up being a subQ inject).

    For example, if I am trying to do a tricep inject with a slin pin and it doesn't hit the tricep d/t the shortness of the pin, I am not convinced the gear will be absorbed as well subQ and as a result, not only will I notbe getting the intended amont of gear but my hormones will be less stable (d/t to the diff %'s of gear absorbed that particular inject day).

    Hmmmmm

    There are studies showing sub-q is just as effective as IM, and kept more stable blood levels.

    Are you using human grade gear?

    I can't speak for research, other then my own experience.. On my last t-prop cycle, mid cycle, to play around i started injecting with a slin pin, into the muscle, and a few shots sub Q in the stomach, and i noticed ZERO difference in how i felt, nor results, as shooting IM.

    I also had a friend try it from the beginning of his cycle, with test prop, and he had good results too..


    NOW i am not saying this is for everyone, but if this guy is having that much issue injecting, and is considering rubbing oil based Test prop onto his skin, then IMO this is a MUCH better solution.

    yeah, but well, with prop you really have closer to 3-3.5 day usable life, so it would even out pretty fast, i'd guess within 7-10 days. Most of HRT patients doing this would be starting from nothing, and using a longer ester to begin with like cyp. so it takes a bit longer for cyp to even out doing it subq, closer to a full month.

    I am not so much even using stable levels as the main goal, rather that it is effective, since that was what was in question.

    ah, yeah, I was thinking stable and actually oddly MORE effective. from the studies on HRT it seems that most men needed something around half as much injected subq as im

    Ya, i saw one study where they had to reduce from 100 to 50mg IIRC. I thought it was a 12wk study as well.

    So in other words, shooting 250 mgs of test e a week sub-q is as effective as 500mgs shot IM ??

    Who knows man.. I am just letting you know what this one study found.

    The concern was weather or not it would be effective, and it is indeed effective..

    hard to say as you wont find doctors running a study that high. so maybe it peaks out at some point, nobody knows for sure

    STABLE TESTOSTERONE LEVELS ACHIEVED
    WITH SUBCUTANEOUS TESTOSTERONE
    INJECTIONS
    M.B. Greenspan, C.M. Chang
    Division of Urology, Department of Surgery, McMaster University,
    Hamilton, ON, Canada
    Objectives: The preferred technique of androgen replacement
    has been intramuscular (IM) testosterone, but wide
    variations in testosterone levels are often seen. Subcutaneous
    (SC) testosterone injection is a novel approach; however,
    its physiological effects are unclear. We therefore investigated
    the sustainability of stable testosterone levels using
    SC therapy. Patients and methods: Between May and
    September 2005, we conducted a small pilot study involving
    10 male patients with symptomatic late-onset hypogonadism.
    Every patient had been stable on TE 200 mg IM for
    41 year. Patients were instructed to self-inject with
    testosterone enanthate (TE) 100 mg SC (DELATESTRYL
    200 mg/cc, Theramed Corp, Canada) into the anterior
    abdomen once weekly. Some patients were down-titrated
    to 50 mg based on their total testosterone (T) at 4 weeks.
    Informed consent was obtained as SC testosterone administration
    is not officially approved by Health Canada. T
    levels were measured before and 24 hours after injection
    during weeks 1, 2, 3, and 4, and 96 hours after injection
    in week 6 and 8. At week 12, PSA, CBC, and T levels
    were measured however; the week 12 data are still being
    collected. Results: Prior to initiation of SC therapy, T
    was 19.14+3.48 nmol/l, hemoglobin 15.8+1.3 g/dl, hematocrit
    0.47+0.02, and PSA 1.05+0.65 ng/ml. During
    the first 4 weeks, there was a steady increase in
    pre-injection T from 19.14+3.48 to 23.89+9.15 nmol/l
    (p0.1). However, after 8 weeks the post-injection T
    (25.77+7.67 nmol/l) remained similar to that of week 1
    (27.46+12.91 nmol/l). Patients tolerated this therapy with
    no adverse effects. Conclusions: A once-week SC injection
    of 50100 mg of TE appears to achieve sustainable and
    stable levels of physiological T. This technique offers
    fewer physician visits and the use of smaller quantity of
    medication, thus lower costs. However, the long term
    clinical and physiological effects of this therapy need further
    evaluation.

    ABSTRACT

    OBJECTIVE: To investigate the effect of low doses of subcutaneous testosterone in hypogonadal men since the intramuscular route, which is the most widely used form of testosterone replacement therapy, is inconvenient to many patients. METHODS: All men with primary and secondary hypogonadism attending the reproductive endocrine clinic at Royal Victoria Hospital, Monteral, Quebec, Canada, were invited to participate in the study. Subjects were enrolled from January 2002 till December 2002. Patients were asked to self-administer weekly low doses of testosterone enanthate using 0.5 ml insulin syringe. RESULTS: A total of 22 patients were enrolled in the study. The mean trough was 14.48 +/- 3.14 nmol/L and peak total testosterone was 21.65 +/- 7.32 nmol/L. For the free testosterone the average trough was 59.94 +/- 20.60 pmol/L and the peak was 85.17 +/- 32.88 pmol/L. All of the patients delivered testosterone with ease and no local reactions were reported. CONCLUSION: Therapy with weekly subcutaneous testosterone produced serum levels that were within the normal range in 100% of patients for both peak and trough levels. This is the first report, which demonstrated the efficacy of delivering weekly testosterone using this cheap, safe, and less painful subcutaneous route

    To answer your original question, yes the test and tren can be absorbed transdermally. With the prop/ace esters absorption is lowered, but it will still absorb. I assume just rubbing the oil on your skin would have very little effect. If you pick up a transdermal solution and mix powder in it, between about 30%-50% can be absorbed. test/tren base are more effective and cheaper though. Hope this helps.
