    Ambiguous blood serum levels. Something else needs to be looked at?

    Maybe someone here can advise me on where and how to proceed next. Perhaps there is some obscure hormone level or something else that the doctors have neglected to test for that would unlock the mystery of my condition. I am in despair that I will ever get an answer, much less any treatment. I...

    Testosterone gel application sites for maximum DHT

    Hi all, Wanted to know if anyone knew this. I'm aware that likely genital skin/scrotum is richest in 5a-reductase and thus yields the most DHT from topical testosterone (gel or cream). Does anyone know which site comes after that? From what I've read the sheer amount of skin you apply on...

    Testosterone gel for the balls

    If anybody's wondering whether this can be done without burning.. I've tried pouring a thin layer of testosterone gel onto aluminum paper, let it stay out for around.. 2-3 hours, then apply to the balls. The idea is to let some of the ethanol evaporate. And why I do this.. I can't get the...

    Testosterone production & working out

    There is a lot of information online about working out being good for testosterone production, while in the other hand it can actually be bad for it. I've been trying to research for information regarding this, and how much would actually be optimal for hormonal functions. Does anyone have...

    Lowering Testosterone Dose

    I know this topic has been rammed down our stubborn faces again and again by @madman. I was hoping to get experiences of guys that started on a higher dose, felt unwell, and then lowered their dose and are now doing much better. What side effects told them to lower their dose? This video is...

    Cycling TRT

    I'm wondering about the validity on a clinical and perceived basis of cycling on and off TRT. I wouldn't eve pursue the question except for some research that was done on it, believe from University of Texas (Huston?). And I can't find the link now, ncbi, I thought. Study involved Test...

    Impaired/small testicles and TRT

    Have you had a success with TRT with small testicles/small sperm count? The testicles were impaired before puberty and are small (a third of normal size for the age of 40 years) and the sperm count is low. I fear TRT will further reduce the count and the therapy will be counterproductive. Its a...

    Should I be concerned?

    This morning I discovered what appears to be some sort of sediment or contamination in a recently opened 5ml vial of compounded 200mg/ml testosterone cypionate in grapeseed oil. This vial has never been exposed to heat or direct sunlight and has always been stored in a dark, cool place. While...

    question on daily injections

    After utilizing a 24 mg EOD protocol, my estrodial is still high. I'm thinking this may be why I am having some ed issues still. Lab results right before next injection: Testosterone total (MS): 587 ng/dl (250-1100) Testosterone free (dialysis): 139.5 pg/ml (35-155) Estrodial ultrasensitive...

    Testosterone No Good After 28 Days???

    My CNP wrote me a new script for 10ML of 200MG/ML. When I went to Sam's to pick it up, they had a 1 ML vial. When I told them I wanted a 5ML or 10ML vial, the Pharmacist told me that they only do 1 ML vials because Testosterone goes bad after 28 days....AND once you pierce the rubber cap with a...

    Any idea what might be pushing free testosterone and estrogen up?

    Got my latest blood test in. For whatever reason, at the same dose as my other blood tests (20mg testosterone and 100iu hcg daily subq), my total testosterone is actually dropping (1024 from 1200) and my free testosterone and presumably estrogen are rising (340 from 304 on free t). Doc forgot my...

    Traveling With Testosterone Cyp

    Quick question: I'll be driving around a few states the next couple weeks, and my testosterone vial will be stuck in the car for full days at a time on occasion while I'm in the events I'm going to. It's summer so I'm concerned a little with it being in the heat that long. Will it be okay?

    Has testosterone helped anyone with IBS / IBD or general gut issues?

    I’ve been experimenting with a lower test dose (85mg a week alongside HCG vs 130-160mg a week alongside HCG). I felt better at first like everyone does when changing protocols, then chronic gut issues I’ve had seem to progressively be getting worse despite taking it easier on things that trigger...

    Does testosterone affect sperm shape?

    The following statement may sound very innacurate but I heard/read that when you are taking testosterone your sperm deforms. This ends up affecting the health of the fetus as it grows, is this true? I have research and read a few papers on the effects of testosterone on sperm and I have not...

    Anyone ever had T3 raise their E2 and free T and cause erectile dysfunction?

Historically I can get my total T to 1300ish with a 200-215 free T and 50-57 E2 without an AI or anything with daily small injections of testosterone and HCG. My free T3 on labs is usually a little low (3.0-3.2), my rT3’s...
