    Question Guys on TRT what is it like? How do you feel?


    I mean do you feel normal? can you get solid erections and do you feel just like you did when not on TRT or do you feel better?

    If you work with your doctor you should be able to get the correct TRT dose that will make you feel good. Maybe not the same as when you were 21, but a significant improvement.

    However, once you start adding other hormones to your TRT all bets are off. You could develop all of the same symptoms as someone not on TRT (low libido, ed, etc.)

    Got a buddy who took a very minor dose of DBOL at like age 18 (definitely nothing enough to adversely affect his body in any way), and after he got out of the Navy, went to the Doc for some anxiety issues, and found a really low Test number, and is on 100mg/week Test Cyp. He says 100mg alone gives him wood all the time and is droppin panties like no other. So, even 100mg can be certainly effective. He feels overall better, and claims his anxiety problems have gone mostly away.

    Natural testosterone production is only around 5-7mg per day. So 100mg of esterified testosterone should be a sufficient TRT dose for most people.

    Too young? Why would u wanna torture yourself? If u r having symptons and the lab test clarifies the low test I think u should be on trt no matter what age. IT'S NOT AGE RELATED.

    i would begin by going to privatemdlabs.com to order a blood work test. it is only $50 and will answer a lot of your questions on whether you have low test or not.

    if things come back out of wack, you could consider trt, but remember drugs only treat symptoms and do not cure the problem. the stuff you mentioned can be fixed whether you have low or high test, just gonna take consistent and dedicated lifestyle change.

    Low Vitamin D is VERY common and can reduce test production
    Lack of sleep reduces test production - Sleep apnea reduces the quality of sleep, so 8 hours may not be enough if you have it.
    Doing squats instead of curls may help improve test production.

    There are others but this should get you started.

    U can eat all the vitamins u can get your hands on and sleep 24/7 but if your balls arent capable of producing enough test thats it, ONLY solution is trt.

    OP, just get some bloodwork. Either through the site zeroshens recommended or through a local endocrinologist. If you have insurance you may want to see the doc. That we he can help you decide the best course of action. GL.

    You don't. But before you make the decision to pin test for the rest of your life my advice is to get that bloodwork. Chances are high his test levels are fine, and the tests will verify.

    Of course u should get the bloodwork done and react after that. Never heard someone who started trt ( by doc ) without bloodwork tests. Is that even possible? Sounds wack...

    I agree. For some people TRT is the only solution. But, I'm sure that a large percentage of the people with low test can bring it up enough with other methods. TRT for life is a big commitment. Even if you have insurance now, in 10-20 years, who knows what your situation will be.

    My recommendation is blood work first. Try lifestyle changes to see if that helps, and THEN TRT if you still have low T.
