    ExcelMale and the "Top 10 Testosterone Websites"

    I wrote an article on my website AndrogenHacker that reviews what I feel are the 10 best testosterone websites online in 2019. Keep in mind, they are not ranked in any way. It's just a list. Also, I spoke with Nelson about posting this here because I didn't want to come off as a spam happy...

    Total Testosterone vs Free Testosterone and how they relate to Hematocrit

    I've been on testosterone cypionate for about a year. For the first half of the year, I was on 150 mg/wk divided into two doses a week. I did these Intramuscular.

    Tru T calculator - what is the range?

    Labcorp 'normal' range for Free T is 6.8 - 21.5. Obviously, the Tru T calculator produces much different results. For example, on a recent test, my Labcorp Free T was 27.7. The Tru T measure yielded 46. This begs the question, what is the ideal range using the Tru T method. I saw in some...

    Gynecomastia and T dosage

    Even though I inject just 25mg EOD, I have a gyno (moderate) and I had been leaner before TRT. Does it mean that I still need to inject less? Does gyno=excess T dosage? p.s. sensitive E2 test is not available here

    Lost Empire Herbs

    I've been watching this guy on Youtube and he seems to have some novel ideas, especially about thyroid and testosterone regulation with pine pollen and tongkat ali. Who has experience with them? Is the extra cost worth it?

    How long after the T injection are T levels the highest?

    I am asking about all three most common esters: cypionate, enanthate, propionate; because I know that the peak happens all at different times post-inection for all three of those... Generally speaking, I always do blood tests when my T levels are lowest (the day of my injection before I inject)...

    Cypionate Dose Reduction

    I have posted a few times about my challenges with e2 management. Well, I gave up trying to dial in with Arimidex, and decided to reduce my dose. My first reduction was from 140 to around 120. It wasn’t fun, but I managed. After 6 weeks my e2 was still running hot, so I went down to about 100 a...

    HCG Dose Question

    I've been on TRT since 2013 and I started at 250iu's of HCG twice a week and my testicles got softer and started shrinking. I immediately added a third shot (so now I was up to 250iu's on M-W-F) and it was fine. I then tried 150iu's per day and that went well too. I then read about fertility...
