Diagnosed with Low T at 26...Need some general info and advice please!
Hello everyone! I am new here and still learning a lot. I have done a lot of research myself but it would be nice to get some questions answered directly as you can find different answers all over the internet. So I decided to join a few forums and ask the questions directly.
A little about myself....cliff style
------I am 26
------Been lifting for a little over 4 years consistently but started when I was 18. I made okay gains except for my legs diddn't want to grow and I was in gym and lot more than others and had to be a lot more strict on my diet.
------Went to doctor (not for low T) a month ago and with some of my symptoms (extreme anxiety, apathy, depressions, no sex drive ever, stiffness, short term memory loss, etc). I run business since I was 21 I thought that a lot of the stress and anxiety was from that and this life was just normal.
-- ----Fist blood test came back as 245 total test....second test came back at 248 total test. I think free was 58.
-- ----He immediately wrote me a prescription for cyp. 100mg/Ml.
1.I am on my 3rd week of shots....100mg once a week. I have not noticed much if any difference. Is this normal to start on such low dosage? I am having my 4th shot and blood test again next week.
2.I don't have the best insurance so its a little expensive for me. I think like 70 bucks for the 100mg/ml x10. I am seeing I can get it for a lot cheaper online. But the scary part is where...and should I ask my doctor if that is okay? (may be dumb question but he is close family doctor) Open to Pms for this...thank you.
3. I did not get on TRT for gym purposes...in fact I was totally against steroids mostly because of my lack of knowledge about them until now. I am not going to lie...I was pretty angry finding out I have been lifting for 4 years with all that hard work and had the T levels of a 60 year old man.....the Question...Can I still cycle T like everyone else. If I am prescribed 250 a week....can I go up to 500mg a week for 10 weeks and then come back down to 250.....obviously with blood test. I would like to get some of the time and effort back I lost being that I had Low T.
Thank you guys for any and all advice. A lot of this is new to me and I am still learning.
Here is what I was able to do last year with Low T.....Just to show you guys I did put the work and diet in.
Just copy and paste this I guess....it won't let me do the link. Just to bodybuilding.com
