    Magnesium zinc and trt

    So I’ve heard it’s healthy to supplement with a daily magnesium and zinc supplement because it’s hard to get these minerals in foods nowadays . I’m curious if magnesium or zinc supplementation affects the testosterone half life, efficiency, or effects it in a positive or negative manner ...

    How long did it take you to dial in?

    I know that Madman preaches patience and that it can take up to four months from the time a protocol change occurs to dial in. I whole heartedly support that. I am just curious what other's experiences are. How long did it take you from the time you changed your protocol to feel dialed in?

    HCG protocols?

    Hi, my doc has recommended 500iu hcg on days 3 & 5 alongside my once a week cyp injection. I'm thinking days 4 & 6 might work better? Don't see alot of hcg protocols for trt when googling. Any thoughts? TIA

    Fundamental Protocol Changes

    For men that never achieved subjective success in regards to libido and ED from initial TRT protocols, I have read some having achieved success with scrotal T Creams. Has anyone else done a complete change to protocol in a different manner and found success? If so, what did you do. For this...

I self-prescribed myself to T Gel 3 months ago, the results were amazing in getting rid of my symptoms (low energy, depression, bad sleep, poor recovery, etc - despite a healthy diet and all).

    Thoughts on protocol change

    I've been doing 50mg Cypionate 3x per week (150mg per week total) for a long time. Wondering if anyone thinks there would be any noticeable, negative difference if I changed to 75mg 2x per week.

    Very high trt starting dose?

    After looking over my latest blood results my doctor made the decision to start me on trt. My test levels were 9nmo/l and she also said my gh levels were at 50% of what they should be. Everything else came back good (Estradiol, liver, kidney, shbg etc) My concern is the starting dose of 250mg...

    Testosterone shots and gel usage together

    Hey team, I've been getting bloodwork every few days to show my urologist how silly it is to do a 1ml injection of Sus250 every three weeks. Thought you might be interested to see just how fast it burns up! This is over a 13 day period. Results: 2 Days after injection: Total Testosterone...

    Is TRT mono therapy practical and more beneficial?

    Hi Guys, I'm in my 9th week of TRT without AI and no HCG. My question is: Is it more beneficial to simplify my protocol at least in the beginning year with just TRT only? My concern is reading all the complications of controlling high and low E2 with an AI can get to be a mesh of its own...

    Finally dialed in after 2 years (my current protocol)

    I think it might be useful to share my current protocol after 2 years chasing a protocol that would address all my symptoms and minimize side effects. I started TRT for one main reason. I was tired ALL the time (i started TRT in my mid 30s). Libido was not great. Erection quality so so. Very low...

    I have been on 100 mg a week for 8 weeks now(started trt 6 months ago). My bloodwork came in and I'm a little concerned with my e2. My doc doesn't seem concerned and does not prescribe AIs. Should I be concerned with my bloodwork? Estradial 75.6 (7.6-42.6) Prolactin 15.3 Test serum 546 ng/dl...
