    Is 160 mg test/week too high for me? (newb)

    Questions for the group: 1) After just one shot, could the type of oil be creating skin itchiness? If not, is it likely to be the Testosterone or something unrelated? 2) Switching my protocol from 160 mg/week test, 1,000 iu/week HCG, 5 mg/day DHEA to...60 mg/week test, no HCG or DHEA for now and...

    Hello, Excel Males. TRT has been a blessing. I tested at 65 total T before getting on TRT and the cognitive benefits since starting have been amazing. I had brain fog since I was a teenager and delayed body hair growth and low energy, and now I'm finally feeling a bit more like a normal man...

    Low e2 - Lethargy, Lack of motivation and heartburn (acid reflux)

    My main symptom that I felt after starting TRT (second day) is crazy heartburn.

    SQ vs IM side effects...

    I switched to IM, a while back, just to see if anything positive was noted. I noticed my morning urine stream was very poor. Just the morning one...thinking prostate effect. I did not change anything else, other than where the shot was administered. Anyone else ever experience this?

    Oxandrolone via Troche to Bypass First Pass Metabolism. Effective?
