Legit trt , nhs or private ? What to expect ?

Recommended Posts

I’ve been off for a year , as you would  expect i am producing nothing naturally . I’ve  done a medichecks I’m booked in for a test with the gp practice and I’ve ordered another medichecks ..

 

I'm really low 4.87nmol/l 

 

it’s worse than I expected if I’m honest , but you know what your potentially doing when start big stacks and long cruises . So I accept it .

but , from what I read the nhs sound shocking quality of care , and there seem to be lots of private clinics  offering trt so I was wondering if you guys had insight you would share .

Mine were between 1.8 - 3.6nmol prior to TRT. I’ve not experienced this shocking quality of care from the NHS, quite the opposite, my endo’s quality. I’m on tostran gel and have requested to speak to the endo about getting the injectable version instead as it’s a bit of a pain in the arse remembering to put the gel on.

I Couldn’t  get anywhere on the NHS with test levels between 7-10nmol (30 years old, no prior AAS usage). Got Fobbed off with anti anxiety and anti depression tabs (for no energy/drive).  endo recommended viagra (I had no dick issues at all lol). Went private for TRT in the end after getting f**ked off with it. Life altering tbh. I was happy to make the commitment to pin for life and took things into account beforehand. 
 

Many people have bad experiences with the NHS, But some get lucky with treatments but it’s ultimately a numbers game. 8nmol being The number to be below for treatment. I don’t know how that convo would go after admitting AAS usage though? They’re still duty bound to provide a service and care.

I've been on NHS trt for years.

With your levels you should have no issues - I know I didn't.

A referral to an endo, then a prescription for a testosterone gel. You'll need to stay on the gel for a while to gauge any reactions to the test, then will have the option to stick with the gel or switch to injection.

I don’t fancy putting the gel on my balls 2 times a every day to be honest . Not really practical for work ! 
I might tell them I dont want treatment at this time and just pin  Normal sust .

You put the gel on your upper arms usually.

And once a day is fine. Not sure why you'd want to do it at work.

Once you are on trt by the nhs does that mean you can't run blasts anymore?

I have bloods done once a year so I guess there’s nothing stopping you, provided you’re not bang in the middle of a blast when you have your bloods done each year
