Hey everyone, first time posting. I just wanted to give my story about how I got started on my TRT journey and hopefully help anyone who is looking to start theirs. Im a 30 y.o. male who was born with terrible gentics. I originally went to my PCP for chronic headaches, fatigue, and brain fog. I was referred to his physicians assistant and she took a whole panel of blood work including Testosterone. Everything came back normal except for my Test levels which were total test 215 and free test was 12. I had no idea about TRT at that time. She started me at 100 mg of Test Cyp every 3 weeks. Once I started feeling the effects of the Test, I felt like my quality of life increased dramatically. I didn't have any more brain fog, I had so much more energy, and no more head aches. But, after a couple of days the quality of life went back down and I would have to wait another 2.5 weeks for my next injection. I asked if I could change the frequency or dosage but she refused and said I had to wait until after my 3 month blood check. After 3 months and not much of an improvement on Test levels ( Total T 345 and Free T 15) she refused to change my perscription. I felt that was unacceptable and talked to the actually Doctor and thats when he I realized I should have gone to him first. He understood more of what was going on and changed my dosage to 200 mg Test C every 10 days. Blood work came back to TT 785 and FT 25.6 after 7 days. I honestly can't remeber a time in my life where I feel this great. TRT has changed my life dramatically. I have been able to go to the gym 6 days a week and actually see results. I have so much more energy than I had when I was in my early 20s and my libido is off the charts. I originally went to my PCP for erictile dysfunction when I was 26 and had symptoms when I was 24. I have the opposite problem now lol. I feel like everybody should get there Test levels checked, old or young, because it has drastically improved the quality of my life.

Sounds like things are going well. 100mg of Test Cyp every 3 weeks is crazy low, why even bother. And with a 12 day half-life that's arguably incompetence.

I've been on TRT for about 10 years and it was a noticeable improvement to my life within a week, so much so that my wife at the time said noticed my energy improvement and stated she wished she could do the same.

Yeah, it felt like a tease. I would feel the best I've ever felt in the past 10-15 years for about a week and then go back to feeling like a zombie for 2 weeks. I never knew what normal felt like until TRT. About 9 months ago, normal for me was brain fog, low energy, feeling fatigued, weak every day for years. Now I feel like a whole different person.

I'm glad to hear that you saw an improvement right away. I feel like everybody should get their blood checked just to see were their levels are. What type of therapy are you on?

I'm prescribed 300mg Test Cyp every two weeks, but I take 150mg weekly for TRT. When I first started he had my on Androgel, but I asked for the oil because of cost.
