    Would I benefit from a different type of T?

    Natural labs are attached. I’m high SHBG and lower e2. E2 in these labs is 16, but also have 19. I have been on HCG along with either Empowers T Cyp or T cream and results are disappointing. Looking for something that maybe will boost my e2 up. Maybe Propionate, Sustanon, or Pfizer’s Depo-T?

    Anyone switch from Empower to Perrigo?

    Daily Injections: Prop vs Cyp?

    I will be switching over to daily injections for a while to see how I feel. My shbg is normal at 34, but I still feel too much variation in how I feel when I space shots out by a few days, and I'd like to keep my estrogen slightly lower.

    Just took my first injections

    I took .05ml (10mg) of T-Cyp and 100 IU of HGC. It took me two tries to get the T-Cyp in the insulin syringe. The volume is so small I couldn't even feel it go in. I think that it might be a good idea to buy some .5ml insulin syringes. Easier to calibrate smaller dosages. I thought I would...
