    3 months on Test Cyp and 1 month on Testim - Good or bad to rotate?

    I have a storage of product built up and have been rotating product to give my body a break from injections. I do 175mg Test cyp week and the after 90 days I switch to Testim 1% for 30. I actually like Gels but price is ridiculous for gel. Other than that everything looks good on the lab work except my Hematocrit is a little high. Would this contribute to that? Is it ok to rotate product?

    I don't see harm in doing what your doing, if your levels are good and you feel good then its good to go. using gels may be better on E2 management. I don't understand your question regarding hematocrit, but if its high you need to donate blood before its get out of hand.

    Yes it is a bit high. So going to do a blood letting I suppose. Any other ways to lower it?

    taking less testosterone would lower hematocrit. donating blood would be useful if it was significantly high. there's also some research into grapefruit having positive effects on HCT.

    Grapefruit works great until you get sick of it

    I hate grapefruit so much I'd almost rather die.
