    HRT - Which one to choose?


    If you had a choice of HRT treatment, paid for by insurance (say because of childhood injury left T levels low), what method would you choose. Weekly injection, cream or gel; and what drug would you choose. (think test injections 1 cc a week was discussed? can't remember). And anti-estogen to maintain some natural production.
    Take into account long term side effects as this is for the rest of your life. What are the longterm effects of HRT. I don't need to be superman either, happy with my size; it's more the psychological lift I need from years of very low test. Hardcore lifetime natural bodybuilder so it's not a easy decision to go down that road but I'm at that point where something has to be done...
    Thanks for your time and advise in advance...

    I've done both injection and transdermal, both of which were from a compounding pharmacy. They both work, I like the doc I was going to because he just let me do my own injects and had me doing 2xweekly of 150mg, along with 2 pills a week of aromasin and clomid every 60 day. The problem with the compounding pharm was that sometimes the test I was getting was crashed and it was a pain in the butt to get a new subscription, the cream was the easiest if you don't mind putting 4ml of goo on 2x a day (I stopped when my last child was born because I was paranoid about getting some of it on him). Unfortunately none of it was covered by my insurance, so it cost a ton of money and I haven't been able to keep up with the treatment. Have you checked out AllThingsMale.com, they guy who owns the clinic has an HRT frorum here http://forum.mesomorphosis.com/forumdisplay.php?f=9?

    Injections.. T Cypionate or Enantheate... anecdotal references to stronger
    libido with the Cyp.

    If your ok with the delivery method..... absolutely the IM esters

    I would ask about the longer ester test avalable. Test deca (neo test) is one that you could easly take once a week or every two weeks. (every week is better) I don't like cyp or e for once a week injects as the levals drop too much over 7 days

    I am assuming that it is advalble in the US pharm here.
