I get 100 mg/w Actually that part is fine b/c it puts me at 800 ng/mL. Doc doesn't think he needs to monitor estrogen. He has no idea what it means when my hematocrit is 54. He's clever, funny and smart but he knows fukkall about andrology. IT's pretty much up to you to monitor and adjust, which is a shame.

I am between 800 and 900 mb/dl on 125. I feel great.

Sounds like his doc is a dumbass.

I found a “clinic” right by me, and finally qualified for trt.. 175 for first consult AND bloodwork.
400 mg every 2 weeks.. new blood after 16 weeks to adjust dose if needed.

The part that freaked me out, lol, i got to pick up my script at walgreens... $43.00
Heavenly.

IDK, ever since the early days of my use Test was not the goto for me. Even when I was my most active I had water retention issues even at 250 mg/w. I have to be very careful even at TRT doses. I hate AIs b/c my joints are old and battered so they get sore and brittle with aI use. So I end up titrating in the test slowly over the week to avoid conversion. If it was healthy I would make my own blend of compounds. Basically I think I'm ....ed into a corner. I'm a little envious of you guys that are more tolerant. Maybe this year I will experiment with frequent bloodwork.

Well I am back with more information. Just had consult with my Dr today. I asked what the bad news was and she said that my levels were even lower than last time. Now I am at 120 n g/dl , go figure! She upped the dose to 200 mg every two weeks. Says she'll see me in four weeks. Wants me to get to 300 ng/ dl. Man, she is just not getting the point of TRT. Said 300 is normal range for my age. How should I proceed with this plan of hers? I'm at a loss as what to do.

Get another doc. What I did was call local compounding pharmacies and asked for docs that prescribe testosterone. Tell them your experience with this twat. It worked for me. When I made the call I told them I was on TRT but just moved and was looking for a doc in my area. That worked. You can also do a clinic. A lot of them out of FLA.

Get another doc.

It took me three tries to get the guy I now have, young and up to date on trt and I can talk to him about anything. I travel about 45 minutes to him but well worth it. He doesn't like AI's and scripts me Tamoxifen whenever I ask with no questions, the only one to script it for me of all the rest. I have a history of gyno, 2 surgeries to remove it from both sides of my chest.

Yeah, I guess I'd better try someone else. But I also like having free blood work! I was thinking if I can come in low again in four weeks she says she will have to up the dose some more. Can't stand being so low but if I don't take anything for say ten days prior to the labs would that pretty much guarantee a fairly low count? I will only be taking 100 mg ew for a couple weeks and since I am so low anyway that really isn't enough time to raise them much, right?

I was able to get 10 mls this time so maybe I should just be happy and try to find someone else. Lack of insurance is what's got worried tho!

Find a doc that knows what they are talking about. Insurance didn't cover mine for years cause they wanted me to come off completely to prove my levels would drop. Would not take old blood work. They finally started covering it after my heart attack. Out of pocket is 85 to 100 bucks for a 10 ml bottle. For TRT purposes thats not bad.
