Transdermals

Can the same results be had with transdermals as they are with injectables?

I'm wanting to see what the general consensus here is on transdermals. Can you get the same results using transdermals vs. injecting?

Since I'm on HRT and have been pinning continuously for years, the idea of going TD was nice. I started running test prop TD about 1 year ago, and I've stuck with it ever since. I'll throw in injectibles when I want to blast.

I use PJU as my TD carrier, and I'm guessing I get about 50% absorption. Am interested in knowing if other carriers work better or if there are some tricks to get absorption higher.

Sure, if you go that way. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

I've been applying to my inner forearms for the last couple of months. There's no hair there, and I've got a lot of veins near the surface, so I'm hoping to max the absorption. I've also applied to my shoulders, bis, and lats, but I'm not as vascular there.

Applying PJU to the nuts would be uncomfortable, but maybe that's the way you roll!

Why wouldn't you use test base? You will get much higher absorption without the ester attached.

Excellent question. The smple answer was my source had test prop powder and didn't have base. I'd rather go to base in the future, since I apply every day anyways.

Just curious, I understand why there is more hormone without the ester, but are you implying that the absoprtion is better without the ester attachment due to the bonding of the carbon molecule to the hormone? If so, I'm interested to know more about this.

esterfied steroid molecules have the largest molecular weight. For all practical purposes it is best not to use a steroid that is esterfied or more than 300 daltons for transdermal application. The bigger the molecule the harder it is to pass through the skin.

Testosterone propionate 344.5
Trenbolone acetate 312.4
Methenolone base 302.6
Testosterone base 288.4
Boldenone base 286.4
Nandrolone base 274.4
Trenbolone base 270.4

That was from Endocrine_Supply back in the day.
