  1. Hey fellas hope you're doing well. I recently made two changes to my test protocol. 1) First time using rohm test-e 300 2) First time using 'slin-pins' 29G 0.5" needle. Now one of these things (potentially both) is giving me grief. I am experiencing lumping/knots/nodules almost every time I inject. I believe I am injecting 'shallow IM, making sure the full half inch needle is as deep into the medial delt/ventroglute with each injection and performing a little z-track each time to pull a little fat away from the injection site. 0.3ml every other day. So, what do you think? I hear of a lot of guys doing just fine with insulin syringes, and I switched to rohm gear due to it's strong reputation on this forum? But one of these two things is giving me some serious aggro right now. Thanks in advance.
  2. Bacne?

    So I’ve started to get a bit of acne on my back. It’s not terrible they are just small red dots similar to a rash. without any crazy medication any advice for how to limit it? currently taking 300test e a week in two hits. Cheers
  3. I’ve been on Nebido T mono in total of 5 injections since 12/2019 (10-12 weeks apart) as a part on prescribed TRT, last injection was on 08/2020. At the start of this week my doc prescribed me Clomid 25mg MWF (3 times a week) as a PCT and then a mono therapy. Would this dose be sufficient protocol to resume my natural testosterone production?
  4. Hi all, Recently did a medichecks test and I've got the results back. My testosterone is borderline and free test is low. However my prolactin is coming back high. I'm going to do another test in 2 weeks then I'm considering speaking to the Leger Clinic if I'm still low. I would appreciate any advice or guidance from anyone... especially if anyone has any opinions on how my results look all round. Thanks
  5. So I’ve been running 300mg a week test enth, first cycle and so far only been on five weeks. My question is what to add next? And at what timeframe? I’m thinking primo/masteron at week 16 something like that? Any suggestions?
  6. Hi all, I'm currently reviewing my options to beginning treatment for secondary hypogonadism privately in the UK, near London. My two front-runners are well known clinic Balance My Hormones, and the less prevalent Nebula Health. Some background on me: early 20's and classic symptoms of hypogonadism. My lifestyle is entirely conducive to a healthily functioning endocrine system (other than a stimulant medication used for ADHD since adolescence). I had a bout of mumps around 13 months ago. I want to avoid Testosterone Replacement as much as I can and focus on a therapy combining hCG and Clomid use to increase T and maintain/increase fertility. I am reassured by Balance My Hormones' testimonials and their large presence. However, I have been absolutely blown away by the service and expertise I've experienced with Nebula Health. I'm convinced these guys are on the cutting edge of these treatments and know an incredible amount, more than any youtube or internet guru I've come across in the last few years of passive research and the last two months of active research. I'm really interested in your guys' experience and recommendations and am happy to answer any questions you might have about my situation. Thanks in advance

  8. Hello everyone and please dont judge to harshly, amen. It will be my first cycle I trained natural for 3 years apart of lockdown homework outs for bloody 5 months push ups pull up hated it lol. Im 27 fairly lean would say 12% bf 177cm or 5.10 and weight 76kg or 167lbs. I have small frame proper ectomorph. Looking to do next and I will explain my logic behind it so please take it easy on me .. Test e 400mg/wk split into two doses 12-13 wk Masteron e 100mg/wk split in two doses of 50mg mix with test e when I do my shot if thats okay ? Hcg 1000 wk twice a week I believe Ai 0.5 eod. Nolva on hands. So I need advice from intelligent human beings on this one. Masteron inhibit aromatase so I decide that doing 200 mg of test e and mixing in same syringe 50mg of mast e will help with aromatase ? And Im confused with hcg should I do 500iu a week or 1000iu I think its not that much of a gear Im running here will it be okay to get away with 500 hcg twice a week ? Blood will do before cycle to estimate levels of estradiol and how bad I will aromatase. Any suggestions or corrections please.cheers
  9. Hi lads, Strange question, I'm using a different brand of test than usual as my source has a short supply at the moment. I'm injecting my normal trt dose, '150mg ' or 0.5ml but...it feels like it kicks in quickly. 2days later I have no libido at all and feel a bit drained although I feel just about ok... I've been using enanthate or cyponate for years and things are always smooth. No issues. This test..the first time I injected burnt like mad for 2 hours, always leaves a small bump, seems to run out of it's test effects within days. Could it be 100mg prop in the bottle rather than 300mg E ? I guess anything is possible, it's not pharma grade. Has anyone got any advice???? I read prop burns etc. I've been using it 4 weeks so far, problems persist, I'm going to try jabbing 0.5ml 3days per week.
  10. Hey guys. Ive been using steroids on and off for years. im 30 92kg. i Bunked my estro on this cycle due to thinking i had high levels but they were actually low. Ive bumped my test E to 850mg a week to try and raise this, been doing this for 4 weeks. Also running primo but have been the whole time. Im starting to get snappy and short tempered now. Would that indicate that my E levels have gone too high ? ive always been sat in the sweet spot so i dont know have any experience in this field. Is it even possible to rise that hight that quick ? my E levels were 11 on bloods 5 weeks ago. but pharmacy wont give me another test so im stuck. what does everyone think ? my libido came back 2 weeks ago and now i can feel it starting to fade again. Once back in the sweet spot what Ai should i take and how often. previous cycles i just took a small amount of Adex if i felt any lumps behind the nipples coming and it used to sort that and increase my libido again. Thanks
  11. Hi! Sometimes, 3 out of ever 5 times, when I inject, and physically insert the needle in my thigh, I feel a large throbbing/pulsing and i get pins and needles down my leg. I often ignore it and everything returns to normal after the shot. Today, when I experienced this, but when I removed the needle a fair bit of blood followed (darker in color so feeling its not arterial). It clotted after a few mins so I am not so worried. But it did get me thinking of the pins and needles (almost 'dead leg' sensation) and throbbing were maybe bad - perhaps a sign that I should pull the needle out and go into a different spot (Something I am always anxious about doing). ? I am pretty lean injecting 1ml med with a 1inch 23g needle. Cheers!
  12. High prolactin after PCT, please HELP!

    Hi everybody, I stopped using steroids in July, then did a full blown PCT to recover from it. I did a regulation PCT and used all the necessary drugs like HCG, exemestane, Tamoxifen and Clomid. My PCT was 6 weeks in total and I easily recovered from with no problems whatsoever. I stopped injecting testosterone in mid July and all of it is out of my system, I did bloods before PCT and after PCT. In both tests, my prolactin was high. In the previous test my prolactin was 584 mU/L and now it has decreased to 532 mU/L which is still bad. I don't know what prolactin does in men and according to the internet high prolactin levels in men is often caused by a brain tumour. What should I do now?
  13. Hi All , I am a 47 year old male , weigh 79kg , 5.7 foot (173cm) , BF% roughly is 20% and i have been working out a few years but still in beginner stages as my lifts are still a bit low . 1RM's are ( Poverty Bench is 90kg , Squat is 150kg , Deadlift is 195 kg , OHP is 70kg ) currently on a pplppl rest split. I did blood test last year via my gp and everything was normal, test was 17.4 nmol/L at 82.6kg , I tested it recently and its 19.3 nmol/L , no idea about free test though. I will do this test before hopping on to see where I am at https://medichecks.com/products/sports-hormone-check-plus-blood-test So this leads to my question which is I want to go on trt and do 100/150 mg every week and concentrate on losing fat to get to maybe 12/15% BF and then do the 500g beginner cycle and then go back to cruise at 100/150mg. The reason i want to cruise is that I am done with kids and am old enough to to want to keep it going if it makes me feel better and saying that , I want do do this only for the gym and for better recovery etc. I have a few vials of test and adex at hand already , just need some needles. So what would your advice me for an old fogey
  14. Hi guys, I've been on TRT now for several months. 200 mg / week of Test C with 1 mg / week of Anastrozole (Arimidex). I inject and ingest together twice a week; I cut the weekly dosage in half for each dosing. I'm under the supervision of an MD and get my blood work done every 10 weeks. Everything is fine. My estrogen, progesterone, prolactin, lipids, etc. are all normal. Some are at the high end of normal, but normal nonetheless. The only exception is my free testosterone which is twice the high end of normal. Within the past few days, I've begun experiencing numbness in my extremities. Specifically, I've experienced numbness in my fingers and lower lip. My left pinkie is practically useless. Have any of you experienced the same sort of thing on gear in general or TRT specifically? Is this a common side effect of testosterone use? Or is this the beginning of Lou Gehrig's disease? Am I going to end up like Stephen Hawking minus the 200 IQ?!?
  15. Hi everybody, I hope all you guys are doing great. Can anyone tell me how my dad can get prescribed TRT from a doctor? He is around 50 years old and gained alot of weight recently. I am pretty sure he has low test and would benefit from taking replacement therapy dose. He injured his back(herniated disc) in his 30s so he can't lift weights or run. I am trying to get him to do some cycling so he can loose weight but I think TRT would most definitely help since he has low energy levels and sleepy all the time. Since, I am a steroid user I can easily get him to use one of my vials of test and he knows about my steroid use. But he does not want me to give him test, he is scared because he could get enlarged prostate or prostate cancer. I also think its better that he goes to the doctor, what do you guys think ?
  16. Hey guys im new here and looking for some advice, how much is to much? I know this is a difficult question to answer and will vary from person to person with loads of variables so let me give you some info about me, (Male - 28yo - 93kg body weight - 5ft 10in). I have never done a cycle before but plan on doing one very soon couple of weeks, currently plan is to take "Test E" 2 times a week at 250mg or 500mg a week and Tbol 30mg a day for a total of 12 weeks. I understand this seems to be quite a lot for a first cycle but i keep finding mixed reviews online and i dont want to unnecessary take more then i can optimise, So my question is: How much is to much Test E and Tbol? Is Tbol unnecessary for first cycle? Is Test E alone enough for first cycle and should i stick to 250mg dose a week or 500mg? Does Tbol compliment Test E? I am getting blood work done just for my testosterone before during and after just so i can monitor how my body takes it and plan in the near future to get a wider blood work done, I am also aware that if i take to much Test E i will get a lot of estrogen and this is what i want to avoid unnecessary estrogen. So please use this topic to discuss help and inform others and i look forward to hearing what you have to say
  17. Hey there! hoping someone could shed a little light on my situation. its my first cycle and unfortunately I don’t know anyone with first hand experience in these matters so I’ve tried my best to educate myself but .. I started pinning test E 250 every Monday and Thursday, this is my 5th week now and I’ve been taking dianabol 50mg for the last 3 weeks. Judging by what I’ve read I should have been noticing the effects by now? ive put on 2 kg so far which considering I’ve increased my food intake quite a lot this isn’t as much as I would have expected. I got a testosterone test on Monday, and the results came back at 27.2nmol ... so bunk gear right? I did my blood sample in the morning fasted before I was due my test e injection that day Also should the dianabol suppressed my natural testosterone yet? If so then the Dbol is bunk to am I right? I didn’t get a test before starting my cycle stupidly! also I’m 30 years old and around 105kg if that helps Thanks in advance for any help!
  18. Hi there, I am about to start TRT Treatment with Sustanon 250. My starting dose is 1ml every 2 and a half weeks. I assume this is a normal dose? Would you say its fine injecting with a 27G needle (0.4mm) Or would you suggest going larger? I was planning on injecting in my thigh. I am pretty lean so I assume it would go in Sub Q? I have 5'8 needles too which i could use. As for getting blood work done to check blood /t levels, how often would you say getting them completed? My Red blood is Border-line high. Thanks!
  19. Bad, good, ugly? Any tests? Experiences? Obviously in with rules won't say where it's from but online order (first time using online for test)
  20. Hi there, I have been on TRT for the last 9 months or so. I am a 27 year old with secondary hypogonadism . I am not a science guy and do what the doc tends to tell me. I started out taking Testosterone Cyp, injecting 0.5 ml once a week from a 200gm/ml vile....not even sure what the dose is! I combined it with HCG 2,500ui twice a week (if that sounds right.) Switched doctors, moved to the UK; everything is different here. The doc took me off the Test. as my RBC has tended to fluctuate; the Heamoglobin 174/176 g/L. They switched me to Androgels for a month...totally ineffectual for me and my Test levels went from 31 on injections to 10 (prior treatment i was 1.2-2). How high are these bloods? Are they likely to be a worry if i stay on T? If I did stay on Test. would switching to a different ester impact the RBC? The doctor wants me to be on HCG mono-therapy. I am open to the idea. I am however, curious as to why some doctors totally reject the idea of HCG mono-therapy and favor it only when combined with Test. when fertility is a concern. For me, fertility is not an issue. I just want to feel well, and after 4 weeks of renewed low T symptoms that were only getting worse, I dont really want to play the game of waiting another month here and there. Thanks!
  21. Hi chaps, Been on TRT for approx 4 years which has been fantastic in every way. Currently on 96.25mg TestC p/w and 700iu HCG p/w. Finally been able to book a holiday (in 7 weeks) and am now ready to do a cut. Ideally want to keep as much of my hard earned gains over the last 6 months as I can (lucky enough to have a decent home gym) so was looking at getting a little help with Anavar. I did a holiday cut last year with Ostarine which was pretty good although I'm carrying quite a bit more muscle this year. Am currently at 198lbs, 17.5% BF and my target is 14%. I was planning to take 20-30mg Pharmacom Anavar ED (ordered direct - I think I can say that as its the lab?) for 6 weeks, keep the same TestC protocol and increase my HCG to just over 1000iu. I also have pharma Anastrozole which I was planning to run alongside the cycle, perhaps 0.5mg EOD or ETD to keep E2 in check. I'm healthy, clean-diet, non-smoker and teetotal (boring sod) and my bloodwork always comes back clean ( baseline T approx 33-35, Free T 0.7-1, Prolactin and Oestradiol upper normal) and I'm 48.. I've done my research (all praise to SwoleTroll and you other fine experts) and I'm planning to do a T cycle in the near future, but don't want to waste my first proper cycle on a cut and I also know there are more effective orals for cutting; such as Clen but the sides are off-putting, and I think Anavar + low Test could be a good first mini cycle for me to break my cherry :-) Does the above sound sensible or am I a boring moron?
  22. Hi , this is my third steroid cycle I have just started this week and have been constantly trying to find videos and personal experiences to Run my next cycle. my first two cycles have been testosterone only cycles ... however with the oestrogen conversion and water retention all I have done when I have come off my cycle is drop size and pretty much gone back to my original (well not my original it’s all in your head) this cycle round I’m running Test E and Tren E , I would appreciate serious comments and support from people that have had really good experience running these cycles and what dosages where used. ive come to the conclusion that I am not YET gyno sensitive , I think I would have found out form the first two cycles I ran as my dosages where like 600mg per week , all I have is a little bit of bacne but that’s after coming off cycle. sorry for the long read but I’m serious about getting the dosages right for this cycle! thanks In advance! jordan!
  23. As the title suggests, what is your opinion on this lab and the product TEST 400. Each 1ml contains: 300mg Test Cyp/E 100mg Test Prop
  24. Hi there, I am a 27 year old male and have been on TRT for the last 9 or so months over in the US. I recently relocated to the UK (London) and had run into some trouble with continuing my treatment. I had been on Testosterone Cypionate and was responding very well. However, the urologist i saw in the UK said that cypionate wasn't available in the UK and I could either use gels or long acting injections. The Docs in America always told me to forget Gels, and a lot of online reading has supported this claim (the the Dr is a fan). I know it is possible to get Cyp from third party providers (Optimale, Balance My Hormone) but I wonder how trustworthy they are, and how much extra money they are taking? So now I am on Testogel, and quite frankly I think I am facing a psychological barrier owing to my American indoctrination. Do you think the Gels to be significantly inferior to Cyp? Is it real so bad? My biggest fear is giving the gels a few weeks or a month to work only to return to some kind of injection, by which stage I will have to wait around 8 weeks for any symptoms to disappear. (I know it is possible to get propionate and other short acting shots in London but I haven't really considered this). Any insight would be greatly appreciated!
  25. Hey, Is it possible to blast and cruise test + tren without losing your mind?
