View Full Version : interesting TRT discussion today

06-19-2012, 05:18 PM
today I went in to get a urine test and I asked the woman at the front desk if they do blood work because I read threads on here and I'm always interested in physiology and lifting weights..I've never geared up tho..anyway, she says "yes we do, and now we offer testosterone too..you just come in for a consultation and pay 2 hundredsomethin' and then you get your first month of your weekly testosterone prescription and then you just come back every month to refill it and if you ever need to talk to a doctor then you sure can do that" and she pulled up a slick little stack of literature and handed it to me.
nothing that she said really surprised me except the way she brought it up..it was almost like she was just telling me about a B-12 shot..just like that..I guess it's that easy?!
Im 38 and for some reason this really interests me..I'm afraid of the long term with my nuts though..
any input from someone that is on TRT would be appreciated.

If you're that concerned with testicular atrophy, hcg would be the solution.

not only atrophy but just not working anymore..could I stock up on the scripts and cycle a bit..instead of cruising? I'm guessing that's what a lot of lifters do..?
They even had a sign for HCG there too..I'm guessing they'd prescribe that if I expressed interest?

Hcg will keep you working. Is this a clinic or doc office? Clinic costs are usually through the roof. As far as stocking up to blast, I don't recommend it. Keep your blood levels steady with what you're prescribed and you can outsource for your blasts between your scheduled blood tests.

^^ What he said. If they are giving you test then they should be monitoring your levels as well. So you will need to be taking the test they give you.

Do short cycles right after you get bloodwork and just make sure you are only running your script for a few weeks before the test. I'm sure if you asked about it they would prescribe you hcg and then you won't have to worry about atrophy, it will also help maintain your fertility.

I keep thinking about this...it does cost good money, but my biggest concern with doing this myself is the poor quality of a UG product going into my leg, so it's worth it just for that...

there going to test your blood and your testosterone levels have to come in pretty low to get a script bro, do you think you got low T? they won't just give it to you

I have been on prescription TRT for about a year now. My doc says my serum test levels needed to be under 300ng/dl on that inital blood draw for him to justify TRT. I stopped my own self administered TRT 3 weeks prior to that initial blood draw, and my test levels came back at 198. He prescribes me 100mg of test c a week. Pick up two, 1ml vials from Sam's club pharmacy each month. I really just have been stockpiling the stuff. About a dozen vials on hand now that i haven't used, due to using gear I have gotten from my supplier.
