    Sensitive to E2 - subq and HCG

    Hi guys, I'm very sensitive to medium to medium high E2. I feel like absolute shit, depressed, anxious, low libido. I talked to a new doctor who wants to put me on subq test Cyp and HCG: As far as I understand there's more aromatase in the fat, and so I'd think I would aromatise more with...

    Switched to SubQ injections. Question...

    50mg cypionate SubQ, M/W/F. Injecting in abdomen. Love it. Would never go back to IM injections. It has been 2 or 3 weeks since I switched from IM. My question is, how long after a SubQ injection might it take for blood levels to spike/peak? I ask because last Monday I had blood taken at 10am...

    HCG Half life IM vs SubQ?

    So I am finding some info about IM HCG injections having way shorter half life compared to SubQ but can't really find solid info on this. I was always under the impression they had little difference at the typical doses for TRT and even Monotherapy. Does anyone know of any data on this? I am...

    SubQ injection locations

    Hey guys just started SubQ. I’m having A hard time finding good spots I guess. Using a 28g 1/2” syringe I feel like I’ll Pierce stomach muscle below my belly fat? Maybe it’s deceiving and the stomach muscle isn’t as close as I think it is. Should I be going in at a steep angle? I also tried my...

    Sore, hot and raised stomach from SubQ injection..did I mess up? Should I keep using the site?

    Hey all, New to TRT and had my first pin on Wednesday night. 40iu test C in the abdomen. Everything was fine. Today (3.5d later), I inject on the other side of my abdomen. I was feeling my stomach to see where my initial injection was though, which I found because it was harder than all the...

    Low SHBG guy here... Test Prop SubQ ED works best for me...

    *Background- My SHBG has always been bottom of range 0-10% of Lab Corp range (10-20)... So years after not enjoying the benefits of TRT due to my doc not having a clue (I was injecting total 200mg/Cyp - 100mg x 2/pr wk). Realized I should have been injecting smaller and more frequently...

    SubQ and the needle size

    has anyone failed with subQ using standard insulin syringe? I had been injecting T Prop in the muscle 50 mg 3 times a week and my libido became huge. when I went to 35mg EOD but SubQ, it didn't work at all. So I can think of two reasons: 1) SubQ needle was to short 2) I kept the open vials and...

    Sub Q Injections

    Why is it that every doctor that I have told that I am doing sub q injections are like "Those are supposed to be done via Intramuscular." Even the nurses at the place I'm getting my testosterone has said the same thing. It's very annoying. I have to tell them to look at my chart where it says...

    Subcutanous shots in back of upper arm

    Hello, This is not really testosterone related, but maybe it will be helpful for folks administering subcutaneous shots. I receive allergy shots a couple times a month, and they always administer subcutaneously with an insulin syringe, in the upper arm at the tricep. Immediately after the...
