Adding to my H R T
Was just wondering if it would be beneficial for me to add a shot on the day they did my blood work so it would be out of my system by my next blood test (6 weeks maybe). Is it possible to make a little gain if I'm just adding once per blood test or is it a waste if you don't stay elevated constantly for a cycle (say 8 to 12 weeks). Thanks for any help I'm new.

right now I'm getting depotest (cypinate I believe) at 400 mg every 2 weeks because my test reading is at 247 which is at the bottom of the normal level I've received 2 shots and they will test my blood and then give me my 3rd shot. Depending on my results they will adjust my dose. I'm going to tell my doctor I want to be higher in the normal range which I believe is 850 or so ? My question is could I get any results if I add a shot on the day I get the blood drawn to elevate my level even higher and would it be out of my system and would I be back to a normal level by my next blood test.
this is all new to me so I have no idea about the half life I don't even know what I might be able to get to add to my HRT

Every other week HRT is crap, it needs to be dosed every week. You're blood levels won't be very stable on that schedule. If you are self medicating I would add a small shot in between the weeks the Doc gives you an injection.

I asked a friend what he could get me and he said sustanon 250 and eq (may not be spelled right).
Is this something I could use?
I don't want my tests to come back high or i'll lose the doctors shots even if it is only every other week.
Will my levels go down enough if I go the last 2 weeks without adding before the blood test?
It sounds like I'll get tested every 6 weeks maybe longer once they determine my regular dose amount. Right now I believe I'm getting 400mg every other week. They call it depotest which I think is cypinate right ?

I am on TRT, and I self inject weekly, which is correct for stable levels, even when using cyp. Tell your doc you want to self inject. Your doc may resist at first but if you show proof of injection knowledge and the doc typically will allow.
i.e. I have been studying testosterone and found that there are numerous medical studies proving that testosterone cyponate should really be injected weekly to be stable, and results in lower more stable estrogen, whcih means an Aromatase inhibitor may not be needed. I really can't afford weekly doctor visits to have you inject me so I have been researching injecting myself. I watched injection videos on Youtube and I know how to aspirate to look for blood prior to injecting. I have a friend who is a diabetic that offered to help me. Can I just get a script for the test and inject myself?
Sustanon 250 may remain active for as long as 21 days, and Equipose 15 days, which is not good for your frequent TRT blood tests and also is not good for the goal of achieving stable TRT level. I suggest that you do not do any cycles until you are at stable TRT level.
Yes, you are correct Depo test is testosterone cyponate

It is preferable to inject once a week, but only to help stabilize the test levels, not estrogen.
Test Enanthate is a slightly better choice than cyp.
Sustanon you'd have to inject at least every other day. It's nothing more than a bottle of esters.
200mg of test per week will probably not require E2 mitigation.

The longer you wait between injection and blood work the lower you test levels will be.
Your liver should be fine, he should be looking at other factors, like RBC, hemoglobin, hemacrit, BUN, eGFR, lipid panel, SHBG and E2. Also, blood pressure.
Forget clomid. Forget an AI until you get your bloodwork done. Get HCG.

The only reason I thought I'd need pct is if I added to what I was getting from the doctor.
now a couple newbie questions. When you say HCG do you mean HCGenerate ? And what is AI ? I'm sorry to ask these stupid questions

"When you say HCG do you mean HCGenerate ?"
HCG is not HCGenerate. Human Chorionic Gonadotropin (hCG) is used to jump start your own body into producing testosterone.
"what is AI ?"
Aromatase Inhibitors (AI) work by inhibiting the action of the enzyme aromatase, which converts androgens into by a process called aromatization. Aromatase inhibitors work by inhibiting the action of the enzyme aromatase, which converts androgens into estrogens by a process called aromatization.
In layman's terms for your case:
Aromatase Inhibitors (AI) inhibits the estrogens.
When administering testosterone, testosterone levels in your body increases, and so do the estrogens. If the levels are kept stable and low, then an AI is typically not required. If there are large fluctuations or high levels, then an AI is required. High Estrogen levels in a man can cause all kinds of issues, like causing you to gain fat or getting Man-boobs.

There is also a "Male Anti-Aging Medicine" forum here, with focus on TRT/HRT.

Understood, we all have to start somewhere. I suggest you head over to the "Male Anti-Aging Medicine" forum here, with focus on TRT/HRT. Read everything you can in that forum. That is also the area to post these types of questions. Hang in there!
