    Does HCG scale with Test?

    For those who looking to have children soon is there a way to scale to HCG with TRT does? For example 250IU of HCG for every 50mg of test taken per week. Is there a max where anything above 2000IU HCG per week has no additional benefit regardless of TRT dose?

    Testosterone and Anastrozole combined

    I've been using Defy for my TRT and taking 0.4 T, 0.5 HCG and 1 pill of Anastrozole 2x per week. A local place combines Anastrozole and TRT into a compound and recommends taking it only 1x per week and HCG 3 days later. They said that taking T and HCG at the same time is ineffective. Any...

    When is the best time of day to inject Test C or HCG? Natural testosterone is highest in the morning so it seems injecting Test in the evening is the best option? Don't have any idea when the best time to inject HCG is.

    High Dose HCG, Low Dose Testosterone

    For you secondary guys, has anyone tried this approach? I am theorizing that adding HCG once someone has their Testosterone dosage dialed in results in being overmedicated. Could this be the reason why we see elevated E2 once adding in HCG. Does anyone do 1000-2000iu of HCG along with a test...

    I just started HCG with TRT this week. After my first two shots of HCG with the T shots my ED just got worse. Has anybody ever experienced this with just starting out? Is this just due to my levels fluctuating or is this high estrogen causing this ?
