Nov 2016 is when I started. Been taking the same amount each time.

Wow, maybe you are an under responder. I dose .4ml twice a week of 200mg and my numbers hover around 800-900, basically right where I want to be.

So I have found out the hard way that subQ doesn't work well for me. For the last 10 days or so I have been tired, sleep like shit, napped in the afternoons, little motivation to go to the gym (but went nonetheless), and noticed a sharp decline in my mindset. Drastic contrast in how I feel today and how I had felt for the last 12 months on T.

I subQ for 2 injections and it wasn't until the day of the second that I realized, that I wasn't feeling like I should have been on my 150+mg dose. So now I have to live with this until next injection plus a few days for it to breakdown and start going to work.

I may change my pin day from Wednesday to Sunday to get to feeling better sooner.

Because of the pharmacy screw up I was out for 3 weeks. Last Sunday they refilled and I took the full 2 week dose in the muscle. I could tell a difference thks week. Tomorrow I will take half dose and just do weekly IM.

Normally pin on Wednesdays. Since I wasn't feeling the benefits I went ahead and pinned IM on Sunday, 3 days early. 30 hours later and I feel great again.

I hope my sleep improves tonight too. These last 2 weeks have been hell.

damn son! Good luck getting on TRT. If the doc will get you to a number above "normal", you won't look back.

I've heard of people feeling a difference within a day after injection. Definitely ask how much they gave you for your own info. Did they also get you on an AI?

not yet, but it was discussed.

They started me at 140, doing 160 now with weekly injections. They'll probably recommend you start taking DIM capsules before putting you on an AI. I started HCG about a month ago so they might cut back on test this week.

It's not an instant fix by any means. You'll probably get a placebo affect for a couple of days but you really won't reap any benefits of injections for the first couple of weeks. If you have a lot of body fat you'll also end up with elevated E2 levels at some point, probably within 3-4 weeks but they won't test for it until the 6th week. That's when they'll recommend an AI but I'd suggest taking that very slowly because crashing your estrogen will feel worse than having next to no testosterone. I take .5 mg of Anastrozole two days after an injection and it seems to work fine. Taking 1mg sucks for me though!

Also note that at some point, probably just after week 8 you'll want to look into HCG injections. Testosterone therapy causes your testicles to shrink quite a bit and it can be painful. HCG takes care of that and will elevate your test levels even more.

I'm a cash customer for Low T Center and I've been really happy with them so far. For anyone who may be curious their cash price works out to $250 a month for their quarterly program. This covers blood work and test injections. They have their own compounding pharmacy that'll sell you a two month supply of HCG with all the gear for about $60. Anastrozole is $10 for a several month supply at Costco. So call it $285 a month or so out of pocket for treatment. Military, police and firefighters pay $195 a month btw.

Another thing you'll need to worry about eventually is your red blood cell count. Just donate blood every once in a while and it'll stay normal. I'm on week 15 now though and mine is still about perfect.

I'm pretty happy with the doc, and the low t center has been good to deal with. Super relaxed, low stress, the staff in Mansfield is great. The doc had answered all of my questions, and I get the feeling that they have the plan down.

My total T tested at 535 last week so they pinned me with 190 today and will up the normal dose to 180 E7D now.

This thread has tons of great info but also check out https://www.reddit.com/r/Testosterone/ if you want information overload.

My last reading was 347 after 100mg e7d for over a year, so he upped to 150mg e7d last week. I'm not sure what I would feel like at 700-800.
