    Letting e2 run wild

    Thinking of lowering T dose closer to my natural levels.

    So this is just me spot balling here but I've been on trt since late 2016. I'm 45 now.I mainly went on trt so that it would be easier to run a higher dose once or twice a year without having to pct. I also figured the added ability to hold muscle, extra energy, well being, etc, of trt would be...

    Med student here. I have been on TRT since 21. Here is what I have learned about ED, libido and hormones.

    What I take for TRT. I am a med student in my last year. For years I have been on TRT. Because there is just so much misinformation around, I wrote some stuff about what I have learned along the way. What I found works best for me: 2x 50mg Test cyp per week (s.c. with 30G insulin syringe) 2x...

    Does variation in peak/trough equate to libido?

    I have been on TRT for about three years. In January I switched to daily injections in an effort to control hematocrit, acne and sleep issues. I began at 20 mg per day and have slowly decreased my dose down to what is now 14 mg per day under the theory that the lowest possible dose is best. I...

    Your experiences with increasing testosterone dosage?

    This is a re-post to an extent. But what I want to hear is some of your stories on increasing testosterone. Here is mine (without much facts, just how I experienced and read it): I was taking 50mg testosterone gel and had levels at 24nmol/l or almost 700ng/dl. I increased to 100mg and...

    Have been on clinic TRT after AAS abuse as a 24 year old male for 3 years. My natural levels were 691 at age 24 prior to my reckless, careless decision to hope on anabolic steroids at 24. Since then I've tried to come off several times but always ended up inevitably relapsing when the pct or...

    Kisspeptin suppression under TRT: Can it affect mood and libido?

    TD;LR: Kisspeptin may affect how we act and feel. It seems plausible that a TRT-induced reduction in this hormone is a problem for some men. I’d previously asked if suppression of GnRH by TRT is a problem. The literature at least hints that it is possible. The situation with kisspeptin may be...

    10 days in - Libido and Erections kicking in - Honeymoon?

    My biggest concern is maintaining Libido. I have been on TRT in the past. I was off for several months.

    Trouble with libido lately

It's odd because the last 1.5 months I've done a really great job at cleaning up some bad habits (nicotine, alcohol, poor...
