    my dr is a local urologist...he serves the purpose for now lol.
    i know for free t it's best to fast, and im also getting cholesterol done, so im going to fast. I was going to get my blood drawn today, but i lifted yesterday, and ate late, and i think i watched adult movies, so figured id wait an extra day lol.

    i dont recall, but did your doctor do hcg for 6 weeks too? your lh was normal too right? How did you like hcg? what was your dose, and was it sub q or im and what needle? i mfeeling nosy today lol.

    Lol it's cool, no 4 weeks at 250 3 times a week, sub q. Yes LH was normal. Slim pin, nothing to it didn't even feel it. But I've had blood problems and bad headaches my whole life so have had to inject different medication. I hope mine came up because do t really want to be on trt if I don't have to. Was right at 300, so I'm hoping it comes up to about 500 and I won't go on trt yet.

    so you did the hcg for 4 weeks and then waited 2 weeks? i know you said 6 week bloodwork so im confused lol. If your level went up are you continuing the hcg or just staying off all drugs?

    anabolic doc told me to wait and not go tomorrow bc my lh would still be suppressed, but i have another script for bloodwork anyway, so ill jsut get the blood now since i have a dr's appt on the second lol.

    I stopped taking HCG on 8/10 and had blood drawn 8/19 before my next shot of test-c. I don't think whacking off affects your test levels. I think 10 days off of HCG is good.

    woke up at 11 am, got blood drawn around 12am. the woman was rushing me though bc she told someone to go in the room but didnt realize iwas before him. i had lh, estradiol, total and free t, prolactin, and cholesterol panel done and she only took one tube and it didnt look like she filled it up....

    i was going to ask her why so little but didnt want to start with her..was thinking of calling but feel a little embarrassed.

    you shouldn't feel embarrassed, nothing wrong with questioning things when it comes to your health. BTW unless you're testing for PSA no need to fast from sex/ejaculation.
