    Have bloods drawn in 4th week or 5th week?

    so im new to trt and just started...currently protocol consists of
    100mg test c 2x week
    500iu hcg w/b12 2x week
    .25mg adex 2x week

    I have a labcorp blood panel that consists of the following...im currently in week 2

    total T
    estradiol
    lh
    fsh
    cbc
    metabolic panel comprehensive

    what should i be on the look out for and when should i do it? at the 4th week mark or at the 5th week mark? should i worry about my blood levels climbing? red blood cells i believe.... still learning... =)

    out of all the items being pulled what do i need to monitor besides my estrogen... ill be doing it on a trough day, i inject monday morning and thursday evening so ill do it thursday morning to get an accurate reading...

    any help is greatly apppreciated.

    Wait till 6 weeks. Take a look at the second set of BW in the Finding A Doc Sticky. You can pare it down a bit if out of pocket.

    Personally we suggest waiting at least 8 weeks. Somewhere between 8-12.

    Just our two cents

    Either one, since we're in this for the long haul.
