Bloods

Had my labs drawn and my testosterone came back at 156ng/dl 300-1200 is the normal range. I had injected 2wks prior to labs with 400mg test E. WTF!?!? It is pharmacy test.

    You had one injection of test E two weeks prior? Perfectly normal, most of it is already gone after one week. That's why people inject it twice per week.

    Would agree with above, is every two weeks according to your scrip for TRT? do you self administer?
     
    Every 2 weeks for TRT with Test E is a pretty ****ty TRT protocol given the half life of Enanthate

    i agree with the above if your last jab was 2 weeks ago and your injecting enanthate then that's about right as you're ready pretty much for pct and getting your own test back into production

    My script is for an injection every 3wks now 2wks. I knew I would be at the lower end of normal but not through the floor.

    are you using for hrt? if so a blended test would be better - sustanon or similar with different esters present to time delay release.
     
    what you're currenlty doing is ok for hrt only but not to maintain muscle mass if you're planning on cruising i'd up the frequency or get some longer acting esters in the mix

    I have been actually injecting 400mg/2wks. My script was for 250mg/3wks. I am surprised at 400mg/2wks that the labs were so low. Going to have to figure something else out. I have been contemplating antidepressants now I know why. I figured my levels were good for HRT at that dose. Piss!

    From what I've read when I was on TRT 250mg of test E every 2 weeks should be plenty mate. For TRT anyway, more than that is not representitive of normal levels.

    That's why I can't figure out how 400mg would be so low.

    Because testosterone enanthate just doesn't last enough in the body to pin every two weeks. You could have injected a whole gram, that two weeks later the level of testosterone in your blood would still be very low. During the first 4 or 5 days or so it'll be through the roof though.
     
    You need a slower release testosterone (decanoate or undecanoate), or you need to pin more frquently.

    Interesting. When I was on I started doing 0.5ml per week due to issues with my skin going red as f**k and seemed to do quite well on that. Is that the kind of more frequent you mean Uriel or should the dose be higher?

    enanthate is not a suitable hrt drug man - like i said above you need a time release steroid with a long acting ester in it
     
    sustanon was specifically designed for hrt and contains :

    Got my liver enzymes back and they are very good. Pretty happy with all my bloods except the low T issue.

    just change the steroid you're using mate, the enanthate ester is fine if you're injecting once or twice a week but not really suitable for hrt imho. you need a drug like sustanon which is specifically designed for that purpose.

    Does anyone still make pharma sust? And I hate the PIP I get with sust but would go back to it. It is a love/hate relationship.

    tbh you don't need pharma tho as loads of labs make a blended test product
     
    i know that precision and hormone one certainly do and i think wild cat do too

    I try to stick to pharma sust because of the PIP I always freak out about is it an abscess or PIP? It really can be crippling for me. Not sure why. I have tried everything to help it injection then lift or run, apply heat, rub it after injection and mixing it with other gear. Always a pain in the a $$ literally.

    it's the prop that hurts - inject it along with either sterile oil to dilute it or lidocaine as a local anaesthetic. 
     
    even just add 0.25ml of intra100 which contains yet more prop (80mg/ml) and lidocaine
