    I would use it at half the dose the Dr tell you to use than he will up the script. Than you can save it up for a cycle.

    Save it and make a cycle. Call him in a few weeks and tell him you don't feel any different. " Should I up the Dose?"

    Has your test levels always been this low or is it from doing gear and not recovering?

    It depends on age, but anything anything below 300 is considered low...
    The normal range in males is 270 to 1,000 nanograms per deciliter...
    Anything in the 400 -600 range is a good level if you are off cycle...
    Means your body is making enuf natural testosterone on it's own...
    Again age of course plays a big part in testosterone production...

    So you've pretty much given up on ever recovering? Do you think it's not possible to recover any more?

    HRT makes a huge difference for older guys when you have low test levels...
    You might want to seriously try a good Trib product for 6-8 weeks and then
    have your test levels taken again just to see if you can recover to normal
    levels without being stuck using HRT for the rest of your life...

    I know what you mean though... I've had my test levels as low as yours
    before and it was terrible... No energy, tired, moody as hell... It sucked...

    Have you tried tongkat ali? There are guys at AR, like NTPAdude, who swear by it. NTPAdude was normally at 200 something and he claims he's gotten his levels up considerably with the stuff. Do a search and/or send him a PM -I'm sure he'd help you out. Also check out allthingsmale.com -Swale's site. He's a DO who specializes in post-cycle recovery.

    39 is WAY too young to have to be on HRT for the rest of your life, if you ask me. Maybe you're OK with it though.

    Big Gain

    Harleyman, Curious as to other gains on your Androgel doses like LBM/BF%? Just got a script of same...not pump...doc gave me little packets and starting low like 50 mg test. Did blood work today (14 days after start). Still jelly belly Sounds like your levels went up pretty quick...I didn't catch what dose you were on or have you been back to doc again since last post. And you also didn't seem happy with just the gel....what's cyp? Appreciate any FB!
    Thanks
