    Anyone on here on Testosterone injections?
    I am 30 and my levels are at 520 ng/dl....not really good for my age. I've been able to feel it in some areas of my life. My doc told me to take weekly shots and use another protocol to keep my testicles fertilie.
    What should I do?

    I should add...the doc gave me a shot last wednesday and after a couple days or so I noticed an increase in sexual desire.

    What is the other protocol to keep your testicles fertile? I just turned 37 and had noticed a loss of lean muscle mass and was starting to get flabby and went to the doc and had mine tested he said my level was 213. He put me on this gel stuff called testim that i rub on my chest and upper arms.

    I wasn't having any trouble getting hardons, or shooting loads when I jacked off or anything but I had definately noticed an lack of interest in sex...I just wasn't interested in it anymore.

    Me too, loss of interest. Loads were good and hardons fine. The procedure is HCG 350 i.u. 3 times a week. But this won't work for long your body eventually does not respond to it after years of use. I was using it as a sole treatment years ago...but now it dosen't work anymore. Doc says don't take it for a long time.

    When you were doing HCG alone, how much were you taking and what benefits did you notice?

    Increase in strength & grip, sex drive, water retention. Balls increased in size, increase in ejaculatory volume. Basically the same as Testosterone but it works from a different mechanism.

    You are extremely lucky to find an MD who will prescribe testosterone at that level. Mine was at 320 and the MD still refused to prescribe HRT for me. The rules on this vary. What you are giving is a serum testosterone level. Make certain that you also have your Free Floating recorded in testing as well.

    I am in the process of lining up a different MD on this very issue myfself.

    Testosterone replacement is something I strongly believe in. The problems come with which testosterone ester you are given. Most MD's use Depo (ester is Cypionate) for this and I personally do not like Depo at all. Depo is long acting and requires fewer injections. This is why they do it that way, but it is recognized by the Pituitary axis far more than are injections of DHT which is what you in fact actually need. DHT has to be injected either daily or every other day unless you use a transdermal preparation.

    Human Chorionic Gonadotropin is the standard treatment to prevent testicular atrophy and should be done at regular intervals. If the MD uses DHT (Masteron or equivalent) instead of Depo which is (Testosterone Cypionate) then the need for this is vastly reduced because the pituitary axis or regulation mechanism does not recognize elevated DHT anywhere near as easily as it recognizes regular testosterone which must then be converted to DHT. Also a small amount is far more effective because the hormone is already active and does not require breakdown by 5-alpha-reductase for conversion to DHT by your body for use.

    All in all you are a lucky guy to have an MD who jumps on this at all. Most could care less on this issue and will have you in a C cup bra before they will prescrible male HRT.

    Most MD's are jerk offs bro...
    The doc I have is a: TRT SPECIALIST...I do not give a shit for any MD's opinion. I HATE all mainstream doctors...they do fuck all for their patients.

    I had absolutely no problem getting T from my urologist. First the patch (irritated the skin) then Testim gel (not covered by insurance) now Andriol capsules. My doctor is very forthcoming with his time and information.

    What is your experience with Testosterone Ethanate? The same as Cypionate?
