Hi Everyone!!

Hey! I just saw that a second person added to the Poll, and he/she is using a pellet method !! Now I don't feel so alone.  :D  :D

If that person would post some details of their pellet experience, I would love to hear about it. Also, I'm sure the rest of the members
would like to know.

Cheers! Gotta go play in traffic, heading home. Y'All take care. Weekend's coming !!

Best, Sam D.

14 May 2015 blood work: Serum T: 1,264 ng/dL (one month since LAST pellet insert procedure);
                            Free Testosterone: 21.7 pg/mL

I did a cycle of pellets.  It hurt like a dirty dog.  I was limping around for five day and swore I'd never do it again.  But other guys, like yourself, love it, so congrats on the success.  I'd probably do Nebido if I wanted something longer lasting myself, but, if it ain't broke, don't fix it, right?

Hi Mr. PeakT,

Oh, wow! Sorry to hear you had such a bad experience with your cycle of the pellets.

Yes, they do work for me, and work Wow-nderfully !!

But, as you have advised over and over again, here on the board, we should find that process which works for us
and stick with it. Then, tweak it to optimum performance as you get to feeling and performing better and better.

My case in point, it took almost a year to get my E2 level to a number with which my Dr and myself are happy, and
it does all the right things for my health and sexuality.

Right now, my E2 is hovering around [27 pg/mL ] with a once a week dose of .25 milligram Anastrozole. That is in
the range of 20 to 30, which has been mentioned on the forum as a probably acceptable range.

I really am looking forward to Member Kiekegardde's E2 Poll/Analysis. I shall gladly submit my data for that one.

Y'All take care, and have a FUN weekend. Rainstorms in the forecast, but I have plenty to do indoors  :D  ;),
maintenance and playtime  ;D  ;D  ;D.

Cheers! - Sam D.

Hi guys

Here is my protocol. As Peak said somewhere, "we are all different"

Test (sustenon) a mix of different testosterones    62 mgs a once a week . I inject this stuff on my thigh with a small needle,maybe half inch long. So this must be a combination of SQ and Intramuscular.I'm pretty lean in the legs.

250 IU of HGC one day  before my test on another 250 the day of my test injection.

I use Progesterone gel daily and 6 clicks of HGH

I had never got these numbers in my life. I attribute them to my diet (pom 8 oz , arugula 200grams, citrulline ,beets) because in the past I kept converting a lot of the test into estradiol or SHGB. The other thing I added is the appart from my diet is the 500 IU of HGC

Libido?..............so so.

Morning erections? .............. NO!!!! or very rare

Erections when I need them ?,............yes,but not very  hard.

I thougt that with this (more than great ) numbers I would be climbing the walls,but no.

There has to be another variable that I'm not considering.l


Anyway,here are they




Progesterone,
1.50 ng/mL                                       0.21 - 1.54

Estradiol,
26 pg/mL                                              5 - 66

Testosterone Total

* 989.5 ng/dL                               142.0 - 923.0    ;D

Testosterone Libre (free)

 * 31.0 ng/dL                                     4.0 - 30.0      ;D

Testosterone Biodisponible

* 645.0 ng/dL                                        98.0 - 590.0

Sex Hormone Binding Globulin

 23.4 nmol/L                                              11.2 - 78.1

Alb˙min

 3.8 g/dL                                                  3.0 - 5.0


I hope I'm helping in this survey and advices welcome
54 years

HRT  protocol

62 mgs of Sustenon weekly one IM shot
600 IU HGC  weekly divided in two SQ shots
6 click of  HGH daily
1 ml of Progesteron cream daily
Half pill of Arimidex once a week

Last lab tests

Progesterone,
1.50 ng/mL                                       0.21 - 1.54
