[MODERATOR's UPDATE: This is an update from Adam at the 6 month point:]

I went to my PCP a few days ago for a checkup/update on my self administered Test-C. I take 100mg/week. Before he could say anything to me I gave him a big THANK YOU! He then says "I guess you are doing good". LOL I told him that the only complaint is from my wife because my libido is way too high for her. I went on and told him that my anxiety issues have disappeared, as well as chronic insomnia. My overall mood is good although overall I still HATE people. <--- thats always been normal for me.... I feel STRONG and young!  8)  He wants me to get a full set of labs done and I told him some things to check out that he usually misses. My PCP is not accustomed to prescribing Testosterone injections and he knows Ive done extensive research on it. I told him I am going to start doing Sub-Q shots once a week at 100mg/week. I did a small "test" shot this morning with a 50mg shot. He was a bit apprehensive (because he doesnt normally prescribe Test-C) but he did not advise me to not do it. He wants to see me in another 8 weeks. Im going to get me blood drawn for the labs in 6 weeks. My Doctor was happy that I came in and that I want to be checked out. He was worried I wouldnt continue to get checked out.

I was worried the Sub-Q shot was going to sting or hurt but it was COMPLETELY painless!

My current protocol is:
30mg/day Armour Thyroid
250 IU 2Xweek
100mg/Week Test-C
My Total Testosterone Levels are between 1100 (72 hours post IM shot) and 580 (7 days post IM shot)

I am overall very FUCKING HAPPY!

I was able to obtain a couple of 4mL vials of this and was thinking of trying it out and possibly doing a a bulking cycle consisting of Test-U, Test-C, and HCG. I did some research and Test-U has a very long half life and for TRT purposes one shot is needed every 10-12 weeks. So if I were to do use the Test-U in conjunction with Test-C and HCG I would estimate my Testosterone levels would be well over 2000nG/dL. I do have adequate Adex on hand. I would do blood work if I were to go this route.

Whats your thoughts?

I am currently on 100mg/week of test-C. Peak T levels are about 1100 and Low T level is 500
As for diet I eat VERY clean and consume about 100-130 grams of protein/day. I would be using creatine monohydrate as well during the cycle.

Hows everyone doing? Its been a while since I last posted anything. My PCP want me to get the following tests done prior to issuing a refill of my Test-C

Lipid Panel
Total Testosterone
Comprehensive Metabolic Panel

Whats your thoughts? Are these typical tests for this? I last injected 7 days ago and I am going to get the labs done prior to my next injection (8th day) which is tomorrow.
I am on 100mg/week however, I usually only inject 80mg/week

Testosterone, Hormones and General Men's Health / Anxiety attacks back?
« on: August 15, 2013, 01:09:33 am »
Last night I had a small (short) anxiety attack. Its the first one in about 3 months. I hope I dont have any repeats. It always has to do with end of life thoughts.....

My PCP asked if I would try 100mg every 10 days. I thought about it a while and countered him with 50mg every 5 days. He said he was just suggesting the 100mg every 10 days because he believes 100mg per week is a high dose. However, if I was happy with 100mg every 7 days he was cool with it. I am open to trying the 50mg every 5 days as I feel really good and I am concerned about E2 (35) and my very high libido. I can always change it back.....

7 days after shot Total-T is 580 and 76 hours after shot Total-T is 1100

What your thoughts guys ?

I seen my PCP today for my 2 month followup since starting Test-C. He told me right off the bat that the dose I was on was the highest amount his office prescribes and that he needs to CYA (cover his ass) and that he wants me to be aware of the potential carcinogen effects of high doses of testosterone can have on men. I am also the only patient in his office that self administers. Then he asked me how I was doing and feeling. I told him I feel really good, Energy, mood, libido, are all over all excellent. He tried to persuade me to try 100mg every 10 day instead of the 100mg over 7. I told him no as I am really happy how I feel right now. He then asked me if I've had any fits of rage, back acne, and oily skin. I told him that I did have some acne on my back and showed him and he said my back looks good. I also told him I feel a bit more aggressive but no rage. I also told him that I am sleeping SOOOOOO much better than before. After our chat my PCP believes I am on a good dose. I told him I am willing to try 50mg every 5 days but not 100mg every 10 days to see how I feel. HOWEVER, I told him I do not want my dose lowered. He appreciated my willingness to work with him and try it out. I now have a 6 month script for test-c at 100mg per week! I do not feel that I need a larger dose.

FYI. He did not want me to get labwork done prior to visiting him today. Also, he has not requested I get any labwork until he sees me again in 3-6 months. My PCP does not know that I did have labwork done through a different doctors office and that I know where I am at.

Should I be concerned about his lack of interest in seeing labs?
Feedback is always appreciated!!

My Total Testosterone levels are now between 580 and 1100 on 100mg test-c! I feel great and want to F#CK everything!

Testosterone, Hormones and General Men's Health / More intense orgasims?
« on: August 02, 2013, 01:40:15 am »
When I climax my orgasims feel more intense! Anyone else in the same boat?
I also want sex all the time!!

Test-c 100mg/week.
Peak level 1100 lowest level 600 (about)

I will post the results of my labs shortly. For now, lets just say I won't be asking my doctor to increase my test-c dose!

I have noticed over the past several weeks that I have been falling asleep and staying asleep without the use of pharmaceuticals more often. The last time I took an ambien was Wednesday night and prior to that I took 1mg of Ativan last saturday night (not last night). Ive been sleeping on average 6-8 hours! Its been gradual but so far Im moving in the positive direction in regards to insomnia!

100mg Test-C per week.....

Testosterone, Hormones and General Men's Health / F#CK I feel great!

I have been walking around with a chubby in my pants all morning and just feel freaking great today! Maybe it was a combination of my weekly shot and a 3 hours of marathon sex with my (and my wifes) girlfriend yesterday!  8)
I swear we would go at it for 20-30 minutes, Id climax, she'd get cleaned up, come back to bed, and we started at it again and Id climax again. I did climaxed 3 times in about a two hour period!

I just feel AWESOME!

Sorry for the TMI....

I had my blood tested this morning before my next shot of 100mg Test-C. I pin on fridays so this should be the lowest level. I am going to get another set of labs done on monday to see what the peak is. It should be pretty interesting to see where I am at. I stopped taking HCG 10 days ago.

Im going into Quest later today to have blood drawn to see where and how the 100mg/week of test-c is affecting my hormone levels. Im getting the following checked: CBC with differential, Lipid Panel, Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH), Testosterone, Free, Bioavailable and Total, and of course Estradiol, Ultrasensitive FROZEN. I am going through the HRT clinic to get the blood test as opposed to my PCP (who prescribed me the Test-C). My PCP doesnt want me to get any blood work done prior to the follow up appointment (which is the first week in Aug.) as he thinks my issues are psychological rather than hormonal. However, I do feel much better since starting the Test-c shots.

Questions for you guys. I was also taking 300IU of HCG 3 times a week on top of the Test-C. I stopped taking the HCG as of last Wednesday. The reason I stopped taking the HCG was I wanted to know how my body was affected by the Test-C alone.  Right now I dont feel all that different. I know HCG has a short half life I am hoping I gave my body enough time to adjust so to not affect the blood test. Do you think I gave myself enough time off the HCG? Is 4.5 days since my last shot of Test-C a good time to get the blood test done or should I have waited until Day 5 or 6? Should I have just stayed on the HCG?

Your feedback is appreciated! :)

So last Monday night I weighed myself and the scale read around 193 and this morning I weighed myself and it read 186.7. Over the past week I cut out all alcohol, reduced my daily caloric intake to around 1600 calories a day, and did 30 minutes of cardio 3 times. I'd like to get back down to 170-175 and I am 5'11" tall.

Is this too much weight lose over to short of time?

I'm taking 60mg of Armour thyroid daily and 100mg test c weekly.

Testosterone, Hormones and General Men's Health / Injection sites
« on: June 27, 2013, 06:56:03 pm »
Does it matter where you inject test? Does anyone know? I've read some people inject in the glutes and others inject in the quad.

Next time I see my PCP I am going to try to persuade him to raise the dose to about 125-150mg per week. I just have to figure out how I am going to approach him on it.

Im going on my 4th week of being on 100mg/week of test-c and I am feeling pretty good.

Any ideas or suggestions?
