    Hematocrit after phlebotomy

    Hello guys, i'm in TRT from 3.5 months, with Test E 125mg EW; i recently did a phlebotomy, drawing out around 500ml of blood to lower my hematocrit which, being it was around 49% in the middle of this months, after i started TRT, before starting my new cycle. Sometimes, during this period, i did Test Prop 100mg at week, to boost a little my Test concentration, especially in the days i felt a bit tired in the gym. After my phlebotomy, i started to inject in the this last week 50mg of Test Prop EOD to start my small cycle and yesterday - AFTER A WEEK FROM PHLEBOTOMY - i did a new BW to check my hematocrit.

    Results:

    RBC: 5.06 Ml
    HCT: 50%

    I have to say that i changed lab this time, respect the last BW. However, i thought to lower it more honestly. I've noticed that short esters, raise up my HCT quicker than long ones. Now, i think i have to postpone my cycle, waiting HCT to lower alone, keeping just my TRT dosage, because if i continue to cycle with Test Prop, i suspect it increasing more and i should do another phlebotomy again in a short time.

    What do you suggest ?

    Hct at 50 isn't dangerous but may not be a good level for you. So yes, drain more blood, drink much more water. Remember hema is basically the solids in your blood, not the plasma.

    Ok. Do you think i have to wait to lowering it before starting a small cycle with Test Prop ? Eventually, doing another blood draining after some month ?
