    Blood test results and Androgel

    A couple months ago went to the hormone replacement clinic or whatever. Got my prescription for HGH and had my test levels checked. Test came back a 250. Of course he started me on Androgel . After 1 month I stopped using and went back for 2nd blood work 2 months later just before starting my cycle of Test E 250 2x week. I expected my levels to be low and for him to start me on injections.
    My test level came back at 260 so he said I could either start using Androgel 2x day or if I really want injections I have to get tested ever 5 or 6 weeks. That does not work for me being on first cycle I got more androgel but of course not using. I will just use it for my PCT and get my levels checked later and hopefully get on the prescribed injections every week but for now I dont want to do any blood work for the next few months.

    Oh yeah, the best part now that he is prescribing Androgel 2x a day my insurance pays all of it but $30 for 60 Androgel 1% pack per month.

    So are you sayinng that the androgel will work as a PCT? I'm just asking because i'm curious and I just prescribed the gel as well and I want need to know what to do with all the leftover Testosterone Lipoderm that I will have.

    For me it will since I will be on HRT but not for everyone. My test levels are naturally low so I have to stay on a certain amount of Test even after cycle.

    Your Total Test could be 690 but your Free Test could be low and that would qualify you for HRT!

    How long should one stop taking the Androgel cream before going back to the Endo to have the levels go down to get on the Test Cyp?

    I've heard a month and I've also heard 3 to 4 days. Just want to get clarification on that. Thanks.

    i've even heard of total test going down while still on low dose androgel in the beginning of trt...happened to me and read a post or 2 more confirming

    and yes i was wondering if the reason was because your free test was on the lower side...i just never have seen such a high total test level when starting trt

    I have asked about this in the PCT section and never got a response.

    PCT is supposed to bring your back to normal, but what if your normal levels are crappy. Is doing your normal TRT the same as PCT.

    I am on 200mgs CYP. I will do this every week, forever.

    Thinking about doing 400mgs of Deca for 3 months.



    Do I do any PCT at all if I keep doing the CYP?

    What will my blood work look like 3 months after I end the Deca?

    no...you are correct...the pct isnt necessary because if you are truly a trt patient then optimum levels are not achievable naturally....when you finish your cycle you continue with your usual trt dose which probably wont be 200 forever...that dose usually puts most levels through roofs
