  1. Hey guys, Im on trt and was wondering if I could purchase cypionate or enanthate from a abroad pharmacy? I have a doctors note etc. Any help would be greatly appriciated
  2. Hi, So, I kinda screwed myself recently. I posted two days ago about quite possibly giving myself gyno through the use of various androgens without the necessary ancillaries. Anyway, I think that it's time I run a proper cycle: Test, HCG, SERM, AI, etc... I have the opportunity to visit a rejuvenation / sports medicine clinic in my area that offers full TRT prescriptions i.e. Test C 200 or 250, HCG, SERMs, AIs, etc. Of course, you have to qualify first through a blood test. That is, your Test levels have to be low enough. Now, I'm 42 this year, and I'm pretty sure I just knocked my natural Test levels in the dirt through my previously mentioned fuckery. Though, I want to be absolutely certain that I'll qualify for treatment (hopefully getting the 250 as opposed to the 200) Is there some way through diet and / or lifestyle that I can crash my natural Test levels for a day or two? I'd rather not use drugs to do this. Thanks.
  3. Hello! I hope you guys are staying healthy and safe in this crazy time. I have been on TRT for over 16 years now, I have done a total of 3 Test-E cycles @ 600mg/wk last one of them with Winstrol added. Lately, I was thinking if I am staying on TRT for life, can I add something else on my TRT with micro-dosing like Deca or Anavar? Is there a list of micro-dosing / curse-able AAS that could be added to TRT? No SARMS, please.
  4. TRT docs

    Has anyone used The mens health clinic, if so how much does it work out to a month for test and hcg? Im in two minds about changing from BMH to either The leger clinic (dr doug savage) or the Mens health clinic.
  5. Hybrid trt

    So I'm on test cyp 200mg deca 100mg split onto 2 shots x week, and proviron 25mg ed, not currently using arimidex as bloods not calling for it. Anyone else adding any extras on at all like t3 or hgh, primo , mast or low dose anavar?
  6. Hi to all, 43 years old. Was 280lbs now 240lbs Using gear off and on for over a decade. Last cycle was high dosages of test and dhb. But have used pretty much everything at some point. When coming to end of cycle I was rushed to hospital for surgery for a non related issue. My mind was on the surgery. The pct which was just about to start was put in the background. Was focusing on healing from the wound. Surgery was in mid September.... Stress and twice daily visits to hospital as outpatient for weeks. Then Mrs says wants a kid.... Realised I had no lebido, had Ed... Weight suddenly dropped 40 lbs as I realised my whole focus was on my post surgery and nothing else. Fsh, estro and test low. prolactin slight raised.. Maybe due to high stress levels last few Months. Started bloods... 3 months after should have started pct. LH 1.7 (1.7-8.6) FSH 1.24 (1.50 - 12.40) E2 5.9 (11.3 - 43.2) PROLACTIN 25.60 (4.04 - 15.20) TEST 1.63 (8.64 - 29.00) System was clear of all hormones. All other bloods glucose, lipids, liver etc were all good and healthy range. Started WK 1-2 HCG 1500iu week. 3 x wk Blood tested End of week 2 Blood Test Results LH <0.1 (1.7 - 8.6) FSH <0.10 (1.50 - 12.40) E2 19.0 (11.3 - 43.2) PROLACTIN 17.40 (4.04 - 15.20) TESTOSTERONE 7.39 (8.64 - 29.00) Test level went up from 1.63 to 7.39 but still just out of low end. Week 3/4 due to response increased to 2500iu hcg Mon, Wed, Fri. After 4 weeks hcg my test went up to 8.9nmol/l (8.64 - 29.00). So bottom of lower range. Lh and fsh had gone to zero due to the hcg. Felt much better than before. Actually could get wood and sperm. Psychologically much better etc. Moved to clomid/nolva.. Week 5-8 clomid 50mg/day Nolva 20mg/day WK 9 clomid 25mg/day Nolva 10mg/day Wewk 10 clomid 25mg/eod. Nolva 10mg/eod Now at start of week 7 (day 11 of clomid), did a blood test. My test had dropped back down to 1.7nmol/l. A minute fraction over what I was at start of pct! But I was told this was normal. LH had DROPPED TO 1 from 1.7 (1.7 - 8.6) prior and FSH to 0.85 from 1.3 (1.50 - 12.40) and SHBG had jumped to 70.5nmol/l from 52.2 at end of week 4. So while starting to feel better on hcg I switch to clomid and feel like crap.with numbers worse than at testing before hcg. Psychologically very low, low mood, no motivation, the usual for low T and e. Is this the end of the road? My numbers aren't moving with the clomid and realise the plan made for me doesn't probably fit as I'm very shutdown. I've bumped clomid up to 100mg/day with Nolva 20mg which is what I used to do) so don't know if numbers will start to rise. Feel terrible. But I'll ride the wave if there's a possibility I can recover at some point. Was thinking to stay on clomid at 100mg for total of 4 weeks with 20mg Nolva. To try and bring up lh/fsh numbers. Then taper down over couple weeks. And retest bloods 4 weeks post? I appreciate the protocol I was given but I think starting low dose has f**ked me. As I'm so shut down with coma cock. When being so suppressed should have starterd at 2500i.u. of the bat with hmg. Any suggestions on how long I can stay on clomid etc in attempt to try and do a strong pct now? Also should this fail after testing is that it and move on to trt or could you do pct again? If possible I really ant to stay off trt for life.. But I say this knowing how long I've used gear off and on and the risks incurred. My conundrum is 2 fold... My Mrs is old. 43... So her chance sof pregnancy are very low anyway. Im doing a reboot to recover normal hpta but how long if ever will it take and will I have any sperm even. Year plus if ever maybe.?? Or go on trt dose and smash hcg/hmg hope my dick starts working with the test and get some sperm and at least try to conceive after 3 or 4 months My fear is even on trt, no pregnancy and then most definetly no chance of recovery to normal hpta with test useage again. I apologise for such a long winded thread. Anyone who's still here... Thank you.
  7. Right. Get this... I’m being employed by an affluent couple to make a baby with her. The money is big. They aren’t into the clinics. They hit me up and I’m looking to travel to them once a month for a few days (while she’s in peek ovulation) until the job is done. So.... I’ve been on self administered TRT for the past 4 years. 200mg. Test Cyp. A bit of Arimidex to keep E2 in place. “TRT” has been very good for me but I’m concerned that this could make me much less fertile than I would ideally. Otherwise, I’m a pretty healthy 34yo, drink lots of water, eat well, sleep well. Hang between about 10-12% body fat year-round. Also worth mentioning I’m currently on a blast of 500mg test and 270mg nandrolone, which I’ve been running for about 2 months - a bit of caber to mitigate any weird prolactin issues. All good. I’ve got about a month of prep time before the first trip out there. My questions are: What sort of protocols can I look at to optimise my chances of getting the job done? Drop back to 200mg test? Cycle HCG? What sort of protocol? What have you guys done to father kids who have been on the hormones? Any tips or tricks? Thanks in advance!!! Rich
  8. Hi. Background: Male in mid 40's. Been on TRT (via Dr Savage). Was on Sustanon 250 (approx 125mg per week) for about 2 years. Decided to come off it (some issues with hemotocrat which has been sorted out via donating blood, and some aggression esp after injecting). Now week 8 off TRT, and feel like shite. Had my bloods done, and free T is low so thinking of hopping back on TRT. Your thoughts?
  9. I’ve been prescribed TRT for 8 months now. Currently on 150mg of test enanthate twice a week. Due to pre existing gyno issues when I was a teenager (had breast tissue lumps removed years ago) my doc thought it would be best to put me on a stronger AI, letrozole. I’ve been taking 1mg every other day along with my twice a week testosterone shot. At first my libido slightly increased, which was great but now it does not exist, worse then pre TRT. My theory is my estrogen is so low it’s affecting my libido, being on such a strong AI at a high dose. Does anybody have an suggestions on how to get my libido back? Would switching to a weaker AI or lowering my current dose allow my estrogen to rise and increase my sex drive? With all due respect to my doctor I don’t believe his knowledge is as up to date and comprehensive in this area. Does anybody have personal experience with an issue like this or ANY suggestions? HCG? I’m open to anything. Just want my libido back at this point. I understand medical advice may not be something that can not be shared in these forums, hence why I am asking for suggestions, not ‘medical advice’. Any one on TRT or take steroids recreationally that could help? Please?
  10. Decided to get blood work done after 14 weeks on a 1m test enanthate cycle evey 7 days. Last jab was 8 weeks ago. Had 4 weeks on nolverdex along with natural test boosters like daa, zinc and magnesium. Really healthy diet and still hitting the gym 5 days a week with extra cardio. Is my natural test reading misleading as when I was on cycle it was 80+ best to get a test again in a few weeks, any opinions feedback welcome.
  11. I know i'm not keeping my story to one thread, but this is really just to alert people to the possibility of their blood test results from various providers being, well, wrong. By a lot. Long story short - i've been tracking my testosterone through Medichecks since early 2018, so coming up for 2 years. Nine tests. Ignoring the first two (on clomid), the rest giving results around the 6 - 8 nmol//l. Last Medichecks test was Nov '19, just over 6nmol. Fairly consistant. In dec '19, bit the bullet, saw nhs doc who took bloods on 18th Dec. Went for my results last night - 11.9nmol/l. My LH was 2.9, roughly the same as my last Medichecks test. So, for 18 months i've had regular private bloods, taken by a nurse, paid for extra fast delivery, always coming back around 6 to 7nmol. Get blood test not long after a 6 result but on nhs - result is double. Props to the doc because after i said "looks like i need to get onto Medichecks about this, i've spent a lot of money with them" he replied he still wanted me to see an endo based on the Medichecks results. Something 'aint right though.... Anyone else had this?
  12. Hi guys, I'm 37-year-old from Belfast, new to the forum(my first post). I have been looking into TRT for a while now. I have all the textbook symptoms of low Testosterone. My Testosterone levels have been consistently low at 12.3 -13 nmol/L throughout last year(i had three tests done). My question is, which private Dr should I go for Dr. Stevens or Dr. Savage? I don't mind their initial consultation fees, but going forward how much I will be spending monthly on TRT medication per month is a deciding factor for me. If the members up here can share their experience on the following questions, I will be very grateful; What is the total cost of TRT per month with each doctor? Whose protocol is better for building and keeping muscle mass? is NHS GP are willing to help with prescription and blood tests? Sorry for all the questions, I have used the search feature in the forum, but haven't come across a post which has covered all the questions I have.
  13. Young lad, 13st 24% body fat. Never done steriods, average gym goer. Work long hours on the roads. Started to loose sex drive and putting on more fat than muscle. Feeling tired and lost motivation. Decided to go to the doctors for blood work. Test levels where at 10nmol which is like an 80 year old man. They said it's a little now and not to worry come back in a few week's an do another, so I did another a little later on in the morning and come back at 9.2nmol. I played on it saying am feeling depressed and all the rest hoping they would find the issue and prescribe me Trt. Doctor said am fine just need to cut back working and exercise more and eat well. fu**ing waste of mine and there time. So basically I decided to self diagnose myself and got the misses to help me with my injections of testostrone enanthate at 1m every 7 days. Brought it from trustworthy source along with arimidex and lots of advice. Few weeks went by... sex drive through the roof. Like a dog with two dicks. Feeling great, love working out getting stronger and putting on a little size. Look a little puffy in the face which am not keen on. Wanted to make sure my bloods were in check so ordered a blood test for hormones with medichecks (great service) wanted to keep it away from my useless doctors. Results came back and am pretty worried. New arimidex plays with your cholesterol so had plenty of fish oils and citrus bergamot and ate pretty clean with cardio. My test levels are just through the roof. I've decided to wait a couple of weeks now till my next injection.
  14. Stats: 30 years old, 92Kg, 6ft2. I recently opted to go on self prescribed TRT. I already have kids. The positives for me outweigh the negatives. The main issue with cycling is PCT affects my ability to improve my lifting and also affects my mentality negatively. I feel generally lacklustre. Previous cycles have been light. Dbol, Anavar, Sarms, Test E. All successful cycles. I hated PCTing. I have started a mild cycle of 250mg of Pharma grade Test E. The Pliva Testofort amps. I know this is over the absolute limit for a “TRT” dosage. I am considering dropping to 125mgs every 7-10 days (pinned frequently for stable levels). I currently pin with 25g 5/8 inch orange pin 125mg Mon & Thurs for stable levels. I choose to pin Sub-q because it is more convenient for me and I get less PIP. I do not take any other meds currently to manage Estrogen. I feel energetic and no sides. Question One If fertility is not an issue should I even consider HCG? Will not taking it impact my health or is the only benefit normal sized balls? I am thinking there are some additional benefits as it would mimic the bodies natural processes more closely... Question Two I would rather not take AI’s - what are my chances of estrogen based side effects at 250mg Test E only (dosed twice per week as above). I am generally not prone to gyno - although I have been relatively cautious in previous cycles to avoid this. Question Three I would like to try Tren @ 50mg EOD (I know this is considered a VERY low dose but Tren is purported to be 5 x stronger than test). This would be for my “blast period” sticking with 250mg Test. That would equate to around a 500mg equivalent of Test. Would the ratio for Test/Tren be wrong? Question Four Would I need an Ai for the 250mg & 50mg Tren? I have easy access to gear & ancillaries so if I truly need an AI - no probs, I will get it. I would rather take the most effective compounds and the least amount of drugs for desired affect. My goals are to make steady noticeable “enhanced” gains for life. Looking forward to hearing opinions. Cheers!
  15. 29 year old gym fanatic here. been on trt for the last two years since my labs came in exteremely low. felt lethargic, weak and lacked motivation, most likely ate too little and worked out too much. much better now with 200mg test a week. never done any cycles. experimented with SARMS, however. want to go a step further and add some lean muscle. the goal is to keep the low body fat percentage and add some pounds of muscle. I'm not a bodybuilder - but more after the fitness model look. after doing my research, I believe primo is ideal for me. now I consider two options: add low dose primo (200mg) and run in for somewhat like 16-20 weeks OR cycle primo for 12 weeks at around 400-600mg. which option does make more sense in your opinion and why? again. I'm not after huge gains, but I wouldn't mind adding a few pounds.
  16. Hi, On Test E 100 mg every five days - what is an appropriate dosing schedule for HCG please?
  17. Hi all, I have recently been prescribed Sustanon 250 125mg per week due to high SHBG leading to low free T. This was obtained via a well know hormone balancing company. I should be getting it today. I am nervous about starting and have so many questions. I hope someone can offer some good advice I have been prescribed HCG to take as well if I want to, should I? Will I get many side effects with 125mg p/w? Will I need an AI? I have a son I see once every 2 weeks. If I ever snapped or shouted at him because of side effects I would never forgive myself. Is this likely? Can I store the remaining 125mg from an ampule for next time? My prescription says to discard it, but that seems wasteful... How do I dispose of it if I cannot keep it for next time. I would be worried about throwing away an open ampule? Should I take at morning or night? Does it make any difference? Bloods: Oestradiol:83 Testosterone: 20.00 SHBG: 57 Free-Testosterone(Calculated): 0.305 Prolactin: 230 Thanks, guys & sorry for the noob questions T
  18. Anavar Cutting Log

    I'm slowly cutting with Triumph Anavar while on TRT. I'm currently eating at maintenance. 14% bodyfat (No abs, with thick pinchable fat on the lower stomach) Anavar: 50 mg per day Testosterone: 100 mg per week Day 1 - 8: Side Effects: Moderate stomach pains (if Anavar is taken on an empty stomach) Sleep disturbances in the middle of the night Moderate night sweats Anxiety / Heart palpitations Main Effects: None Day 9 - 14: The sleep issues have gone, as well as the night sweats. Side Effects: Moderate stomach pains Main Effects: None I'm on day 14 and no positive effects yet. No increases in strength, pumps, or visible muscle gain. Triumph is legit, isn't it? (It's from a reliable and well-known source on here)
  19. Hi guys, I was hoping some of you could offer me some advice. I am 25 years old and have had low testosterone for a couple of years, been on various treatments for it including the gels and most recently Sustanon injections dosed every two weeks. Unfortunately, despite receiving my injections fortnightly, I still do not feel any better. My Endo has therefore suggested that I switch to Nebido, the long-acting testosterone injection, dosed at every eight weeks. The standard dosing protocol is apparently every ten to fourteen weeks, but a bundle of research indicates that this is too large a gap between injections, and that for stable blood levels an injection every eight weeks is best practice. I was wondering if any guys on here have had any experiences with Nebido, good or bad, and if it had improved your blood levels and symptoms better than Sustanon or the gels? I read that as Nebido is long acting it provides more stable blood levels and also avoids the "peaks and troughs" of the Sustanon so this is one of the reasons why I am keen to potentially try this in place of the Sustanon. I find that with the Sustanon I get quite bad "ups and downs", and guys on TRT who I have spoken to have told me that is because of the different esters going up and down and therefore this makes maintaining consistently stable levels very difficult if not impossible. My doctor thinks Nebido might be a better option for me for these reasons, and he is an expert in the field of TRT, so I am inclined to make the switch from Sust to Nebido. Just wanted to hear the thoughts of those who are currently on it or who have been on it, so as to have as full a picture as possible before making the decision. Thanks for your comments and your insights.
  20. I need a pct newbie

    Hello guys need some advice. New to the scene. Started on ANSMONE 8 weeks ago three weeks into HG started TRT (sus250 Magnus Pharma). Also been taking anavar since start 40mg. Thinking of carrying on TRT for another 6 weeks but need a PCT for when I finish. I have also been taking Anastrozole EOD. been thinking HCG but can I run this now with the sus and the GH? What other PCT protocol would anyone recommend. AGE:27 WEIGHT:110KG HEIGHT:6,1” CALORIE INTAKE 2000kcal ED.
  21. hey all! been blasting for 6 months trying to gain strength. ive had my bloods done just before Xmas and everything was sweet. Using various compounds, with Test always being my base. 3/4 weeks ago I switched my Tren ace ( 600mg ) to NPP ( 350mg ) i lost a bit of strength but nothing to major, I think the fact I didn't lose to much was because the sides of Tren weren't allowing me to train to the full potential of the dose I was taking. im currently on 550mg test and 350mg NPP/week. im going to continue for 2 ish weeks by the end I would of tested my 1RM on my 3 main lifts. then cruise for a minimum of 3 months. my questions I have are ( obviously I know variables play a part in my answers - but just an overall average is something I'm after ) dropping to the equivalent of 250mg test every 14 days how much strength am I likely to lose? - my lifts are still within what a natural lifter of my weight could lift but they're good for my weight still. in using 5/3/1 as my program, shall I continue this on my cruise ? if so, how would I do it if/once my strength drops? should I wait till I fail a required rep and then test my new 1RM and start my program accordingly or just reduce my lifts my 2.5%? for those of you doing true TRT dosing, what's your protocol for pinning? and which esters would you say will give me consistent levels - I ask due to such a low dose, I don't really fancy peaking and dropping and noticing that.. Thanks
  22. 45yo 195lbs 19% body fat. Feeling low for a few years, non-existent libido, unable to keep muscle despite training 3-5 days a week just to name a few. So I got a blood test as I suspected low test. I have been told these are ok on the results despite one abnormality. I thought i would post the results here as I have used this site previously and found the advice given very helpful.

  23. Hey guys. Happy new year. After 14 months off AAS (and thinking I was done with them for good), I fancied doing a 12-weeker starting in Jan. Before getting stuck in, I thought best to get bloodwork done and see if I'm in good enough shape to start. Now everything has come back hunky dory except for two things: testosterone and free testosterone. The range for test is 8.64 - 29.00, and mine has come back at 8.14. Free test range is 0.20 - 0.62, and mine is 0.16. So both are under even the lowest reading. Bugger. TRT has been suggested as a way to resolve this. However, I'm not overly keen on this as I don't really want to be on the needle for the rest of my days (and as much as I love the NHS, I don't have much faith in how they go about TRT). Thing is, I'm not sure how badly this low test is actually affecting me. For example, libido is surprisingly fine. Hard-ons are easy to get and maintain. And my mrs and I just had a baby so I know the plumbing works. However, I'm pretty tired most of the time. I don't have much motivation in the gym (I just go through the motions). Strength's not too bad considering I don't train as regularly or as intensely as I used to, but it's not great either. Joints and muscles ache a bit too (which I just put down to being 36 and worn). And it takes me days to recover from a decent gym session. But all that could be down to having a 3-month-old baby therefore not getting much sleep. I should also add that I've just moved jobs and am in the process of buying a house. Not overly stressful, just a lot going on. I guess my question is: what are my options? Having test levels that are unlikely to improve (I'm 36 and have used AAS on and off for the last 5 years), do I just bite the bullet and get on TRT/self medicate? Or is it something I can just live with? Do I stick it out a while, wait for things to settle down with work and family and see if I 'feel better'? My current plan is wait two weeks, try to train, eat and sleep better and then take another test. If levels haven't budged - which is what I expect - then I'll look for a TRT consultant. In the meantime, it would be great to get any advice or feedback from anyone who is, or has been, is this situation. Cheers.
  24. Hey guys, What levels of E2 Estradiol do you feel most comfortable at, in case you've been measuring your bloods? I'm interested to hear your opinions whether it's on TRT or a cruise mainly, but also welcome to hear if you're on cycle. The reason I'm asking because I've been years on TRT but really struggling with my AI dosage and getting the E2 level correct. I suffer from sleeping problems, lethargy and constant general feeling of being unwell. I also have a terrible non-stop HSV outbreak and I can't get rid of the infection. Based on my thorough research, I'm almost sure it's Estrogen or Progesterone related. I tend to get too high E2 levels even just on my TRT dosage of Nebido so I have to use an AI to regulate the levels. I started with Aromasin, but it gave me side effects so I switched to Arimidex. I've been changing from 0.25mg E3D to EOD with clear effects on my blood test results but can't find the "sweet spot". The recommended range goes from 11.3 - 43.2 pg/ml and my levels have been ranging from 20-60 pg/ml. At higher levels I get sore nipples, lethargy and depression. At lower doses, I get sleeping problems (waking up too early) and anxiety, which in turn makes me feel terrible again. ps. I've been to a hospital to check all other bloods, thyroid hormones and for any other issues but all tests come back as normal.
  25. Hi guys, 24 year-old guy here, diagnosed with secondary hypogonadism in 2017 and have been receiving TRT in the form of transdermal gel (Testo Gel 100mg daily) for the last year or so. Testo Gel, at the maximum prescribed daily dose of two sachets per day, only got my total T up to a meagre 15mnol and my free T was still well below the normal range. Consequently, my doctor has suggested that I might benefit from trying one of the higher concentration gels (Tostran 2% or Testavan 2%). I was therefore wondering if any guys on here have experience of using Tostran or Testavan gel, and if so, did it improve your symptoms significantly? My doctor seems to think that as these gels are higher than Testo Gel in terms of concentration, provided I absorb them adequately, we should be able to attain testosterone levels well into the early 20s, which for my age would be the optimal level. Any guys on here who have experiences with either Tostran or Testvan, it would be great to hear your thoughts and insights. Testavan was only launched in the UK in September of this year, so most guys on here will probably be more familiar with Tostran. Either way, both of these gels are 2% strength, so in effect likely do the same job, albeit come in different packaging/ branding! Anyone who has experienced improved erectile function on TRT can you advise how long it took to notice this improvement?
