    Age of you guys on TRT

    If you are on TRT post your age, im curious to see if this is mainly for older guys or lows in their 30s as well or hell even 20s.

    Im 34 and just ran my first cycle a little while ago. It seems from the boards the more cycles you run the lower your test will recover each time leading to TRT at some point.

    Thanks guys

    it all depends on the person. It seems to me that with the absence of aas abuse or other contributing factors most men naturally start seeing their test levels drop significantly in their early 40's. It naturally happens to some guys in their 30's but most guys that are on hrt in their 30's are on it due to aas abuse or a medical condition (yours truly- 34). Some guys that abused aas (stayed on for years without breaks, ran lots of different compounds for extended periods of time etc) in their teens will have very low natural test levels and require trt to feel good/normal. These are all cases of men that have natural test levels that are below the normal range.
    Then you have another group of guys that are on trt that have natural test levels at the "lower end of normal". These would be test numbers around 400-600 or so. These guys use trt to get their numbers to the "upper end of normal" which is 900-1000 or so. Going from the low end of normal to the high end of normal can make a huge difference for some people. It can greatly improve their quality of life and even correct certain mental/medical conditions. Does this group of guys need trt from a medical standpoint? Most physicians would say absolutely not. Most anti-aging clinics on the other say "absolutely! sign here and make the check out to __________"

    I personally see nothing wrong with a guy utilizing trt to get his test levels from the lower end to the upper end. Especially if he is having mental and or medical issues as a result of having low test. Of course like any other drug there are side-effects. Some guys will have more than others depending on heredity, test dosage etc. You have to weigh the good against the bad and make an informed decision.
    If you've run one cycle and did a proper pct you probably don't have anything to worry about. I would suggest having your test levels checked while you're off-cycle to get a baseline number. This way if you do another cycle you can have more bloodwork done to see if your body is totally recovering its natural test levels after these cycles or not. If you don't have that baseline number you can't tell if you're recovering from your cycles or not.

    No previous cycle history. Test level was getting on the low side (292 total) Had problems the last few years with making gains and keeping body fat low so decided to self medicate

    thanks for the posts guys,

    Ive ran a few prohoromes in the past with proper pct and always had bloodwork a little while after. Im normally around 500 test but my free test is always on the low side even before i ran any kind of cycle. I think my free was like 7 last time which was at the bottom of normal.

    Im a small guy and always seemt to struggle maintaining mass even with a proper pct.

    I made this post because i got pissed i woke up lighter today even though ive been eating lots over maintaince. My wife says to me, then just go on a trt does year round... I was like what? lol.

    for those on trt and havent cycled. How hard is it not to cycle? I would think most would be tempted to try it.

    I went on TRT prior to ever considering running a cycle, and after a few months I ran a cycle followed by another one . I got 6 weeks until I can run my third cycle if that says anything about how hard it is has been not to cycle for me.

    35, been on trt 14mths, never touched AAS until i was 32
    i was one of the unluckys who recovered less and less after cycles although looking back i think i may have had low test from my mid 20's onwards

    ironically, i cycle less now

    46, 7 months on TRT never cycled. 100mg test cyp/week. Looking back now I have a feeling that my levels have always been low and life is drastically better since getting my levels in the normal range. I don't want to phuk things up so I don't think I would consider cycling. My size and strength gains have been better than anytime in my life.
