Hi everyone, not my first post but this seemed the most appropriate section to post this. I just got my latest lab work back, first full set since august. I’m approaching my 2 year mark on trt and I’m wondering where I go from here? First year I was on test cyp 140mg/week and ranged up to 160...
I have historically injected sub-q via the fat above my hips, but recently have been bruising a lot and bleeding there, so I began to inject sub-q in my quads.
I didn't connect the dots at the time, but around the same time began to feel like I had crashed my E2 as I could not get an erection...
Is there a standard dosing protocol for anastrozole? I've seen ED, EOD, twice a week, once a week and even once every two weeks.
How long does anastrozole stay in your system? Is there a point at which your E2 troughs relative to when you take a dose? Is there a certain time relative to dosing...
So I got some Of my labs back and the basics are my T was 1477
SHGB was 30
Hemocrit was 51
Hemoglobin was 17
IGF-1 was 180
this was done 24 hours after my last injection. I do 25mg everyday. But my question is, my anxiety has been a little on the higher side lately. I know...
I've been at this for a few years now. I've tried various methods of administration and protocols, but always seem to settle back to what has been my go to protocol of 60mg E3.5D cyp.
After experimenting with a few different protocols over the past year - daily prop, daily cyp, EOD cyp, cream...
Posting for my significant other (40yo) who is going to get a hormone panel done with the hope of maybe correcting some imbalances if there are any. She has been on the pill her whole life and just stopped taking it. As a male I am very familiar with male hormones and have been on TRT for the...
Quest Diagnositcs' range is 35-155 pg/mL for Free Testosterone. That's 3.5-15.5 ng/dL.
Labcorp's range is 9-25 ng/dL.
That's a big difference. 3.5-15.5 and 9-25.
My question is: If you tested at 25 ng/dL on a Labcorp test, does that mean you would've tested at 15.5 ng/dL on the Quest...
Started TRT in December 2019 and stopped on June 5, 2020 to try a cold turkey restart.
My last set of labs just before starting in December 2019 and my labs from August 7, 2020, are attached.
Overall, I haven't felt awful since stopping, although not like I want to climb a...
My buddy is having problems with his testosterone. He isn’t feeling as good as he think he should and he is not responding to the shots the way he thinks he should. Wondering if anyone can give us some advice.
He is currently getting 280 mg/ml testosterone weekly.
Total T is 650
Can someone help me bread down my labs? As far as what I should be concerned about, and if TRT is something I should be getting started. I’ve had some great information on an old thread, definitely wouldn’t hurt to get a second opinion..
Is my free T in range?

I just started on the cream this weekend. I’m thinking about going in next week to run some labs to see where my levels are at and adjust from there. I know with the short half life of the cream, timing is really important for labs. So my question is, how many hours after I apply the cream...
Over the last few weeks, I’ve had 3 blood tests done. I’ve been concerned my T was low. I’ve had many of the symptoms the last few years. Anxiety, depression, zero libido, weak erections, brain fog, and lack of energy. Basically, I have felt like a shell of myself. It’s almost like...

I have been on TRT for 5 years and doing OK without any problems. I normally manifest an increasing HCT, so I donate blood about every 8-10 weeks and have been for the last two years. My HCT is around 51.5 to 52 when I donate. In early Sept, I started getting blurred vision, headaches and...
I'm on daily subcutaneous testosterone cypionate injections and my doctor always has me do my labs in a 4-5 hour window post injection.
I know T levels are pretty stable on daily injections but does anyone know the timing of the peak and trough for daily subq cypionate injections?
I just want...

A liver specialist wants me to stop taking testosterone for a month due to her wanting clean labs for hepatitis B levels. I’ve had it my whole life, but just now am seeing a specialist to see if I need treatment. What should I expect over the next month?
I was on TRT for about 18 months. Decided to stop and attempt a restart using toremifene. The restart was a success!

My current labs are:

Hey guys, thanks for an awesome source of information!
I’m a 42 year old male with most of classic signs of low T. But my case is somewhat unique, or at least, I haven’t been able to find anyone with similar case.
Fifteen years ago I had a gastric bypass and lost a lot of weight. I got to my...
