    I just dont think the guy knows what he is doing and i am telling him to stop suppressing for a while. Or atleast see his doctor and make future plans for natty restoration.
    Dude, you seriously need to stop. He is on HRT BECAUSE HE IS SUPPRESSED FOR LIFE! Its a medical condition!!!!

    He is on HRT because in ther natural state his testes do NOT PRODUCE ENOUGH!

    You do know what HRT is? Hormone REPLACEMENT Therapy!

    Suppressed is suppressed! He will be that way for the rest of his life! WHats the point of stopping Androgel? He will just reutnr to his low state again. He is UNABLE to produce sufficnet amounts! THats why he IS ON HRT!

    Suppressed does not produce a level of 230. His nuts work a little before androgel.

    They dont work at all while on it. Are you telling him to follow manbeasts advice fromthe other thread?

    All i said was to see his doctor and then tell us.
    If he is on proper hrt than his doctor should be aware of his exogeneous endeavors.

    Suppressed does not mean SHUT DOWN! It means your not producing your normal amount. In his case, thats ALL THE TIME!

    No, you said a lot more that was totally false and had zero bearing with his case. If you don't understand how this stuff works you have no basis to comment in this thread at all.

    I already did but you keep bringing up false information that just confuses him. If you don't know, don't post.

    Read that AGAIN! I made my suggestion a page ago!

    HCG is only for people that want to prevent atrophy or have significant atrophy. In his case its proably neither since the cycle was so short so he probably doesn't need it. In the future he might but he doens't need to starting using HCG unless his doctor says he does or he chooses to do long cycles.

    If he is suppressed before a cycle and still suppressing after a cycle, i would say the time is now to make plans. Cause that is a long cycle.

    bobo,

    I have learned some stuff today. Thanks for kicking me around!
    But i still ahve a question. Do you get warning signs that you are "on" too long and it is time to take hcg? Is slight shrinkage enough to warrant pct or hcg?

    I am testing an 8 week 4ad cycle and i guess it is part of the reason i am arguing over here. Can a doctor get me hcg if i desperately need it?

    Only if it medically warrants it. If you go in to a Doctor and he takes blood test while on 4AD, youre test levels will be very very high and your testes will be smaller than usual. In other words, he will know your taking something so therefore he will not give you HCG.

    The warning signs are atrophy. Some people experience this more than others and the only way to know is from your doc or your personal experience. It also depends on the doc. Some like HCG, some don't. If you have a consultation with SWALE and youir experienceing atrophy he will most likely put you on HCG. This only works if you have a medical condition though as he will not prescribe anything wiothouth intial blood work done.

    Not necessarily. Some don't experience atrophy at all while other do. YOu will probably experience much more atrophy with high doses than with androgel. Just because your suppressed does not mean your testes will shrink. It will usually take a very long time with those doses. The volume of atrophy doesn't even come from a lack test production (Leydi cells), it comes from lack of sperm production (steroli cells). Steroli cells take up a greater volume of your testes than Leydig cells do. Thats why I continue to tell people you can't make a judement on test production from testes size alone. It doesn't tell the whole picture. You could have normal test production and your teste could be small due to low sperm production.

    You don't need it unless you do have significant atrophy.


    You don't need 4AD. The androgel will be enough. THe difference between you and noraml men is that the PH's will cause the test production to stop and therefore there will be a delay after the cycle until test production returns to normal. With you, androgel is your test production basically so the delay will not occur. You will just return to the levels of test that androgel provides which is the normal range depending on how muchn you use.

    Yes. If your prescribed with HRT, then you should continue it until the doctor tells you not to.

    OK theres been some great posts here and a lot of feed back and I think I got it now.

    So me (and others) on androgel, can take something like M1T and still get good gains with it. When our cycle is done, instead of doing a PCT we just go back to our androgel and we shouldent have any problems with high levels of Es or anything right?

    One question I still have is, when on the M1T cycle, do we still take our androgel? Or can we? Would that combind with the M1T increase gains any? Or have any posative effects? Or should we stay off it when we start a M1T or other PH cycle? To me, it seems that if I took my Androgel with my M1T cycle, I should get great gains as I will have my daily levels of test through out the cycle of M1T.


    Still one last question. Is there anyway, with DMSO or something else, to increase the absorb % of a packet of Androgel? I know I wont get PH like levels form androgel, but it would be nice to get my normal test levels up to the higher ends of the scale. Any imput on this would be great.

    1. Depends. Some may, some may not. It all depends on you and what you use. I would always have Nolva on hand when using ANY hormones.

    2. Yes, take it. Ther is no reason to stop unless your using another form of test. Keeping test levels normal is always beneficial in many ways.

    3. Yes you can increase absortion with DMSO. How much depends on how much you use and even then its just a guess. But remember, the higher the dose the more chance of atrophy and further suppression. FOr you its not that much of a big deal but it can effect sperm production, lipid profiles and general mood.

    Thanks a bunch Bobo for the info. I feel much much much better now that I have a full understanding of all of this now, and a full understading of what adrogel actually is. I have really high hopes of this combind with a cycle of M1T, and can't wait to try it. But that wont happen till at least earily summer. I am simply gaining to much from the Adrogel alone, due to how low my levels were before, just getting them back in the normal range with the gel has made a huge impact on my gains when working out. Right now I am expecting some time around summer for the gains to start to slow down again, at which point I will start a cycle of M1T. As much as I would love to now, I am in no hurry as I want to see how much more I can gain with androgel and a good diet. I probably wont "need" any M1T by summer, as I will probably still be getting good gains, even if they do slow down some which I expect. But a nice boost of 5-10 pounds from the M1T in the summer, on top of what I am already gaining and buliding would really make a big diffrence in my over all look. Assuming I am still packing it on like I am now. If I am not then I will hold off till I have a really good, natural bulid where the gains from the M1T will go much further.

    Right now its going to be a play it by year approch. But hopefully I can get the androgel to absorbe even better with a little DMSO and increase the gains even more from this stuff. Anyone have any ideas on how I could mix DMSO with this stuff, it's going to be hard since it comes in single, small packets Not even exactly sure how much I should mix.
