    HRT Monthly Injection?

    Alright, tomorrow i'm going to the clinic to run some tests, i'm almost possitive they'll give me testosterone and b12 in a monthly shot, atleast what the receptionist said.

    how will that work? i thought the longest test was actice was 7-10 days??

    am i going to feel good at first, then feel like crap around middle-end of month?

    anyone have an idea? will it make me gain any weight or just put me to where the normal level should be?

    One monthly injection is not a very good idea. Actually, my sports med. doctor suggested that same interval, and I told him that the swings in T levels would be too great. Guess he learned the monthly thing in med. school. The half-life of test. cyp. is said to be 6-8 days. Past that time period, you won't be feeling as good. Heck, you may feel like crap. I'll tell you in a week, as my endo. has me on a 2-week interval and my first injection was last night. Most folks here doing TRT are injecting on a weekly, or maybe 10-day interval and claim that is best for maintaining healthy levels.

    I'm surprised that a clinic would suggest monthly intervals.

    yeah, i was shocked, i said "so would it be 45 dollars every week for the shot?" she said " it's usually just 1 shot a month, so 45 for 1month"


    i was shocked. that would be like a tease.... get ya going good then bam!!! shitty.


    is there any thing i could say to get them to do it weekly? or even bi-weekly?

    Thanks!

    I guess you could find another source...not sure how easy that is for you. Sounds like they want to get you in several times a month at $45 each. Not sure how affordable that option is for you.

    Yea, what Flats says! Once a month is brutal on you and your body; the up and down cycle is ruthless. Shit, I inject twice a week to smooth things out and try for as "normal and consistent" T level that's natural. There are some who advocate EOD or E3D (which I think is a bit much).

    I'd have them change the protocol or go somewhere else.

    1 shot a month = quack.
    Should be administered weekly and ideally 2x a week if it is cyp..

    Don't use them if they want $45 a week for injections. That is stupid expensive compared to the actual cost of Cyp.

    hey guys, sorry was at work, i'm not 100 percent sure, tomorrow is when i have the appointment, also i think it's test cyp 250mg.

    and to "going to a different clinic"... that the only place we have around here that i could find that would do testosterone injections.

    if they wont do them weekly or atleast bi weekly, i'm going to just leave. i dont have insurance so i'm paying it all out of pocket.

    Sounds good. Better to get all the info once they have a look at your levels. I don't ever listen to anything the person answering the phone says. They would need to go to medical school for me to start listening to them. Or at least be a nurse.

    Nice to see them test Thyroid levels; Hypothyroidism has the many of same symptoms as Low T. Post all your results here with ranges and you'll get great feedback.

    I don't see any where in your post why you need TRT? Have you been tested for Low T, do you have symptoms or are you just looking for gains in the gym? Hypothyroidism and Low T are clinically diagnosed medical conditions that can be treated. If you're just looking for more mass that's another discussion for another board.

    sorry, as stated in another thread:

    long story short, i ran a superdrol clone and it shut me down, (all the symptoms), went to the dr and got some blood tests, also when i was 16 i went to an endo and was naturally low on testosterone , so with that being said, that is where i stand.

    I don't know where you are located but maybe they are going to use Nebido (testosterone undeconate) injections. This is typically run at an initial dose of 750mg and then a month later they give you another then they switch to every 10 wks after that. Most everyone who has tried it has been very happy with the results.
