The overwhemoling majority of men on trt donít tolerate ancillary drugs ie: DHEA, pregnenolone, progesterone, hcg etc... Iíve been at this over a decade with hundreds of hours of reading and this to me seems factual. The majority of men that do best on trt are on test only, no doubt about it.

My theory is since your body is no longer making testosterone or DHEA to make testosterone and estrogen that itís perfectly normal for the parent hormone to be low. Iíve never met or talked to an individual that benefited from raising pregnenolone. My thoughts are why wouldnít it be low? Itís like adding an electric motor to your gasoline powered car, youíre obviously going to require less gasoline to make it move. The whole backfilling theory makes absolutely no sense at all.

I take 3mg compounded Cialis from Empower, but can only tolerate EOD dosing due to severe acid reflux. At this dose all is good.

You more than likely have high shbg. I have elevated shbg as well and do better with lower doses. Iím only doing 68mg per week and feel good.

Most men that do HCG pay for it out of pocket but nearly all insurance covers various forms of testosterone. I personally feel absolutely horrible on HCG as well as many others guys. For me testosterone only proves to be the best. The fewer variables the better.

Sorry that should have said 68mg per week but yes when I was doing 100mg once per week my trough levels were generally around 900-950ng on the morning of day seven. If I inject 200mg my 14 day trough is still right around 800ng but my shbg sits around 65-70.

Never really had any issues when I was younger. I had some acne when I briefly tried 200mg per week. Seems it should be non existent on a dose this small but like you said things donít always make sense.

Testosterone, Hormones and General Men's Health / Problem with acne
« on: November 24, 2018, 08:27:24 am »
Iíve been on trt nearly 9 years and have had my fair share of struggles trying to find balance. I have elevated shbg and have tried most forms of trt other than pellets. Most of the time Iíve been on higher doses in the 100-120mg per week range and as high as 200mg per week. I never felt good on higher doses and have always did better on once weekly injections. For the last several months Iíve been doing 68mg once weekly and feeling pretty well overall. This puts my total trough at 600ng and free t at 10-12ng. The problem Iím having is a substantial amount of acne on top and the sides of my head. I canít seem to figure out why this is happening especially since my t levels are much lower now. Any thoughts appreciated.

69mg once weekly with trough numbers in the 600ng range.

Yes I canít tolerate anything over 2.5mg eod with feeling like my esophagus is on fire. This is a pretty common side effect.
I have also had to drop back to 2.5mg once or twice a day. Anything more gives me many issues. It is not enough for fun time with the wife but I add 20mg of Levitra on those days. I mostly take the cialas for BPH. It seem to be the only one that helps my BPH.
For me Viagra causes it worse than Cialis.

So do the other pde5 inhibitors cause heartburn as well?

Yes works quiet well.

Iíve tried it several times at various doses over the years and have only had side effects.

Thats good to hear, glad you're feeling better. I know what you mean about the restarts, it's really hard on a person even attempting that.

Totally off subject, but howís the protocol change working for you Paco? I havenít seen any updates in a while since you switched to propionate.
