    My recent Labs show testosterone levels of 124 please review my labs

    I recently started trt with a dose of 200mg of testosterone cypionate per week, anasrtozole was included in the testosterone and 50iu of hcg twice a week. First 2 weeks I felt great maybe just the excitement of starting trt but weeks 3 and 4 I have not felt nearly as well. Is this normal or am I expecting to much to fast.

    It's probably because of your bad TRT protocol. To much testosterone, what's the amount of AI and why so little HCG.

    Time to start looking for a better doctor. Your AI shouldn't be in your T vial.

    200 mg in one weekly injection or split up between multiple injections throughout the week?

    Most member start with 50-70mg of T twice a week, plus 200iu - 500iu of HCG twice a week and no AI until labs with starting protocol. Check labs in 6-12 weeks and make adjustments.

    I thought I was getting a better deal with 200mg per week

    Why is 200 mg/wk the "upper limit" for TRT?

    Oh no. Normally, that protocol doesn't work for anyone. You are setting your self up for a huge emotional rollercoaster ride each week. Did I see you state in another thread that your Estradiol was 16? If so, and you have anastrozole mixed into your vial of testosterone cypionate you are probably going to crash your Estradiol, which is something that you really don't want to do. Your doctor/PCP has set you on a path to failure.

    That's probably why I'm so moody the last couple of weeks. So I live in NJ and the Dr. Is in Florida what should my next step be?

    I can not read your labs. Do you know if the Estradiol test was the Roche ECLIA or the LC/MS/MS assay? It would say on the lab results I just can't read it. The LC/MS/MS is the one you want and is the one for men. The Roche ECLIA is for women and not accurate for men. However, the Roche ECLIA is normally much higher than the LC/MS/MS. Either way, it appears that your Estradiol, regardless of the test used, is very low and adding anastrozole to your protocol is reckless.

    If it were me, based off what you are telling us, I would not taking anymore of the testosterone with the anastrozole mixed in with it, I would dump the doctor and find a new one. This doctor does not have your best interest at heart. While doing that I would spend a lot of time learning from this forum so you can be your own advocate when you find a new PCP. You may want to consider using Defy Medical, on of the forum sponsors. They will treat you properly and are as good as it gets. I am not one of their clients and have no ties to them but I know from my research that they will do you a good job.

    That is the wrong Estradiol test and your doctor should know that. At least you have found out early on that you have a doctor that is completely clueless. I run away from that doctor and use this as a learning experience.

    Lots of folks jump right in. The good thing is you are attempting to get yourself feeling like you should be feeling. You are not the first to find a doctor that doesn't know what he is doing with TRT. Reach out to these people for a free consultation...........https://www.defymedical.com/


    My bet is you will like them.

    You aren't the first member here, and you aren't going to be the last, who has their doctor send them to hormone hell. It can be put right; you've recognized that you are responsible for your own health and are taking steps to become your own advocate.
