I'm currently doing 200IU m w f but feel better on those days. just wondering if i should go a little higher to feel more effect on off days or do daily. I am new to the HCG part of this but been on trt several years.

If someone were going to do a eod schedule with HCG while on cypionate, what would be a good starting point? I do weekly shots but would like to break up the dosing for the hcg.

Yeah thats what I've noticed with having elevated shbg. It definitely takes a high total number for my free t to budge. It seems from what everyone posts that elevated shbg is more ideal for TRT in many aspects.

That's very interesting because I've noticed a slight increase when eating soy, makes sense now.

Guru, I agree, he's a urologist and primarily treats by the numbers. At 120mg I definitely feel the best, but even feel somewhat decent at 80mg. At 80mg libido is totally non existent but free t is only 10ng.

What would be a good dosage to start at for daily HCG.

I'm assuming since free t is not really that high, that 120mg should be safe for long term. I really wouldn't want to go much higher, but some men do.  My doctor just likes my levels to stay under 1197ng total which is top of range for their labs.

I've been on TRT well over six years and just can't seem to ever get it right. 80mg per week cypionate-no libido but feel ok, 100mg per week-feel better but only have libido last 2-3 days, 120mg per week- strong libido first 2-3 days WTF. I have elevated SHBG-47 checked numerous times. E2 never high 22-24pg/ml sensitive test.
Test levels at 7 days prior to injection: 80mg-775ng, 100mg-980ng, 120mg-1037ng.
Weird thing is I have checked peak levels with all these dosages and it is only 125-150ng difference, its like it just plateaus.
Thyroid, cortisol, prolactin, and all other levels are optimal, all checked numerous times as well.
Started 200iu HCG 3 times weekly a couple weeks back with 100mg cypionate, but really haven't noticed much of a difference.
I've tried splitting the weekly dose a couple times in the past, but feel worse yet.
I have contemplated trying topical and have a scrip, but just hesitant to try it.
At the 120mg dose my hematocrit is at 48 which kinda worries me.
Cholesterol total is 214 but has always been above 200 no matter what I eat, HDL was 58 at last check.
I'm not overweight, don't smoke, very active, eat healthy 95% of the time, rarely drink, absolutely no other health problems.
I tried quitting recently with clomid, but did not have success with elevating LH.
I have had pituitary scan, which was normal.
I'm 43y/o
DHT is always in upper third of range as well.
I am utterly, completely lost, I admit it!

« on: March 20, 2017, 10:24:40 am »
Something I've never been able to find regarding lab numbers is, what is a good trough free T level? I am 43 y/o. 80mg once per week comes in 10-11ng and 100mg per week comes in at 17-19ng both on day seven print to injection.

My shbg is 47 and 100mg once weekly brings me in at 1010ng on day seven prior to injection. 80mg brings me in on day seven 750-775ng free t day seven on 80mg is 10-11ng. This is with test only.

 I tried 80 mg per week as well and really didn't feel much different from 100 mg.  I will say it was easier to fall asleep doing the 80 mg dosage.
