Guys, I went from Reandron 1000 to Testosterone Cypionate because I got bloods done after 8 weeks on Reandron and my T had gone right back down to 9.8 and E2 was 181, which was triple my baseline of 60.
I wanted to try a shorter chain ester, doing smaller amounts, more often to stop the rollercoaster (weeks 8-12 on Reandron are hell).
About 3 weeks ago when I was taught to self-inject Test Cyp, we agreed on 50mg per week SubQ.
After that first injection, I didn't sleep for 2 nights and barely got to sleep on the 3rd and for the first time I got blood pressure related headaches as my blood pressure spiked 10-15 points - it was already around 140/90, and in bed at night I took a reading of 162/95!
So, I decided to split my injection to 25mg twice a week. My blood pressure still has not come down, so I am wanting to stop TRT.
My doctor gave me the option to go back on Reandron and come in every 6 weeks for a shot, instead of 12.
I am a hypermetaboliser/hyperexcreter and have low SHBG, it was 12, now 16.
I worry about the waves of E2 that flood over me. I had gyno before starting TRT.
I would like to commit 3 months to No Testosterone at all and to get super serious on Exercise and Diet.
Losing 15-20kg would be great!
other stuff in the mix:
Adrenal Fatigue, Metabolic Syndrome, weight: 100kg, height 6'1" BMI 29, So Overweight, E.D. - I think the last time I had morning wood 10-15 years ago!
I also noticed how Exogenous T has put excess load on my veins.
I have varicose veins in my foot since starting T and I got a duplex ultrasound and I have 2 incompetent perforators in my right leg.
How long does it take to restart cold turkey?
Do you recommend with HCG or Clomid to kickstart? what protocols are there?
I am still tempted to do an HCG stimulation test, because 2 doctors have said I am primary, I just wonder how primary... but I am scared a bit because a lot of reading I've done says that HCG is quite Estrogenic!
I'm already Estrogen dominant!!
2 other questions:
-can someone post an HCG stimulation test protocol?
-when doing an HCG stimulation test, do you take an AI?
