Why I Love Injections Over Pellets
« on: June 12, 2013, 01:16:03 pm »
Yeah, they sure sounded like a great solution on paper right? :)
I also just realized I got 2 months of some help for $500. OUCH!
I had my first self-injected Cyp yesterday (.4ml) and today I am a new man! Great attitude, lots of energy - had a fantastic work out. I also found out that this is only going to run me about $34 a month, vs $250 for pellets and $45 for 2 tubes of Testim.
Progres...

You may want to check out http://www.goodrx.com/

You can probably print out a Walgreen's coupon for your Px. 10ml vial of 200mg/ml cypionate for about $43.

That ought to last you about 3 months.

Hi Quincy,
I thought I did get 200mg, but only 10 syringes which will last 5 weeks. Perhaps I have enough T and just need to get more syringes...?
That would rock. :)
And PeakT, I am on one tablet of 1MB of Arimidex once a week, and we'll do a draw in 6 weeks...

What is the total volume listed on the vial? If it is 10ML, that is the same as 10CC.

Also it should list the strength of the testosterone. It will either be 100mg/ML or 200mg/ML. I think most are 200mg/ML. So a 10 ML vial would contain 10 x 200mg = 2000mg of T.

You probably need some more syringes if you are doing 80mg for each injection.  :)

I remember seeing 200, so I'll check the vial when I get home on the volume...
thanks!

Just wanted to post an update - even thought it's been over two months since I got the pellets, I had one come out this morning during a workout.

Wow.  Well, I really did not like having to take antibiotics either for a couple of days before.  I work hard on my gut flora and then to have to attack it every few months just didn't seem like a good idea...

yet another update - lost TWO pellets yesterday. The first broke the skin on its own. When my wife was cleaning the wound for me, she gave a squeeze and out popped another one. They don't appear very dissolved, and I'm wondering if it's the brand of pellets my doc uses. I'm afraid the rest won't dissolve and will all work themselves out eventually. At this time, I've had at least 4 or 5 (out of 12) come out...
 
I'm loving me my injections though! :)

You're not the first to say that.  You may want to say:  "Since I've lost two pellets, I think I need my next treatment a couple weeks early."?

I did start Cyp early based on the pellet experience. In a "perfect world", I'd still have great T from the pellets. I had to start Cyp a month ago though...

Wait.  You mean you're losing pellets even though you're on cypionate?

Yep. The pellets didn't move my T numbers, and they started falling out almost immediately. so, at the six week mark I went on Cypionate. Last lab results shown in my sig. As you can imagine, adding back HCG and not knowing what the pellets are contributing (if anything) throws in a wild card. I really think something was wrong with the batch of pellets used, as they didn't move my T and they appear to be dissolving VERY slowly...

That's a weird story.  He must have gotten a good price on those. :)
