    Defy - Is this normally how they work? Negative experience so far...

    Just had my first call with them. I really wanted to like them and handle everything thru them... No doctor on the call, it was a nurse. I thought I was told the first call would be with a doctor when I was looking into it. I figured not a huge deal if she is good. Time allotted was 60...

    Defy Medical: Pregnyl: CVS Specialty Pharmacy

    Does it matter which CVS pharmacy Defy calls in the script for Pregnyl HCG? Do I need to specifcally find a CVS Specialty pharmacy and call them to make sure it is in stock before Defy calls in the script? I am located in the Dallas, TX area.

    How To Use Defy/Empower Nasal Gel Pen

    I received my first nasal gel pen in the mail from Defy today, but it came with no instructions on how to actually use the pen. The only moving part is the rotating clicker at the bottom. I rotated it fully (several clicks), but nothing came out the dispenser. There is no pump or any other...

    Would defy prescribe me parnate?

    For years I have dealt with treatment resistant depression. TRT has helped a bit, but it’s no magic bullet. I’ve been reading up on a medication called Parnate. It’s an MAOI and is apparently very successful at treating TRD. The only issue is mainstream doctors are hesitant to prescribe it, so...

    How strict is Defy when it comes to elevated hematocrit/hemoglobin?

    I’m new here so apologies if this is the wrong forum. I’m considering switching to Defy after 6 months on TRT at a local clinic. I’ve had elevated hemoglobin (high 17’s to low 18’s) and hematocrit (51-53%) most of the time I’ve been on TRT. But I was also on 180mg per week which is probably too...

    Enclomiphene WAS working fantastically. What todo now?

    A classic enclomiphene/clomid story? I have been on enclomiphene with Defy for about 4.5 weeks at 12.5mg/day. It took about a week or two to feel the effects but when it did, nearly all my low-t symptoms were alleviated. More energy, strength, a libido, no more ED, far less anxiety, motivation...

    Does anyone know any women on HRT through Defy Medical ?

    I know that this could probably go in the Women HRT subforum, but that barely gets any traffic so I hope that this is okay. Do any of you guys have wives or girlfriends that go through Defy for HRT? If so, what are there experiences with Defy? I'm just hoping that they'll have the same...

    Why Does Defy Medical Only Work with Two Pharmacies?

    I’m a longtime lurker here on excelmale, I have learned so much on here, big fan of Nelson as well for all he has done for the “hrt community.” So I just became a patient at Defy Medical after switching from my local urologist who refused to allow me to dose above 100 mg weekly, even with free t...

    Looking for a little bit of opinion here. I'm currently a patient of Dr Saya and have had a really great experience so far.

    TRT - HCG - FSH - Clomid? Dr. Saya?

    So, I've been on TRT alone from 9/13 - 11/18. Felt absolutely amazing for about 2 years and then began chasing the dragon after a massive drop in mood and effect. I over respond to adex (.012 once a week puts me at 5 on the sensitive), SHBG hovers between 19 and 27 and T is in the 850-1000...
