So, in the past, I have taken topical T (Alc and creams) and it did not work well for me as DHT was too high (850 +) and T was not improved much, also E2 was lower (7).
So went to T Cyp SubQ 2x per week (abdomen) for a year and it worked very good ( all parameters were good).
But, I want to go to a diurnal T routine ( instead of steady-state) but do not want to do daily injects (would not work anyway because of T Cyp 5 to 7 day half life) , so am going back to a cream, 1 mL daily ( 100 mg/ mL) for a dose of 100 mg a day.
First part of my question is, should I do a concentration of 100 mg/ mL and do 1 mL, or, 10 mg/mL (like Androgel) and apply 10 mL to obtain an effective dose?
(Ignoring the messiness and volume)
Before you answer, note that one of the major complaints about Androgel (1 %) is that guys do not llke having to apply so much liquid ( 5 to 10 mL for a 50 to 100 mg dose respectively).
You would think that after so many complaints about Androgel having to apply so much liquid, that they would increase the concentration to lower the amount of liquid required.
They did increase to 1.62 % but even with that small concentration increase, a large amount of liquid is still required.
Second part of my question is, do you think that they cannot make Androgel "work"* unless it has a small concentration ( no greater than 1.62) with a large amount of liquid?

* "Work" means T increases to "normal" with all other parameters staying within "normal" ranges.
