Testogel + hcg vs injections +hcg?
« on: March 21, 2017, 02:31:08 pm »
There is a snowballs chance in hell that i can get testo E/C prescribed since it requires a license which is extremely hard to get but testogel is alot easier so i wonder what difference is it between testogel + hcg and injections + hcg?

Regards

I think the differences would revolve around how well the gel is absorbed and how much is converted to DHT. These parameters vary greatly among individuals, so you would only know by trying it. In my case gel was poorly absorbed and a relatively large amount went to DHT; going to injections made of big difference. Other guys might see little difference. I don't think there's going to be much interaction between the hCG treatment and either of the primary testosterone-boosting treatments.

T goes up roughly +6-6.5 points with 50mg testogel, reference range 9-30.

Ideally you'd measure DHT while using Testogel, then find the dose of cypionate or enanthate that raises T to the same level, then measure DHT to see if it's the same or lower. But this is complicated, so why not just use Testogel with hCG and evaluate the experience? It would still be good to check DHT to be sure it's not excessive. You don't need hair loss or prostate issues down the road.

Ditto to what Cataceous said.  Topicals tend to boost DHT significantly more than injectibles.  That can be good in some men; it also increases the risk of side effects.  However, Testogel will probably not boost your testosterone that much either, which I would guess is a counterbalance.
THE MOST COMPREHENSIVE BOOK ON TRT/TESTOSTERONE:

And check out my New Peak Testosterone Program: http://www.peaktestosterone.com/peak_testosterone_program.aspx
If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.
