    HRT test dosing frequency

    I see that most guys are pinning enanthate and cypionate bi-weekly nowadays. This wasn't the case so much when was into AAS about 7-8 years ago.

    But my question is do any HRT guys dose 2x/week? Or are you just taking 1x wk? Thanks.

    I have had 2 aids patients come into the ER where I work dosing test p 100mg 2x/wk through their MD's.

    My Sports Medicine Doctor has me dossing test c 200mg 1x/wk.

    Hope that helps bro.

    I dose 2x weekly. I can really feel the roller coaster effect when I dosed once per week. I feel nice and steady at 2x weekly, and I use 29ga slin pins too so I barely feel the injection.

    I'm an oddball. I was on TRT for a few years, came off and recovered. When I was strictly TRT I would dose 150 mg once a week and felt great. Over 200 mg/w and I needed an AI. 200 mg/w with an AI had me at ~1600 ng/dl peak and 1300 ng/dl trough. Normal for a 50 year old man is probably 500-650 ng/dl tested in the AM.

    I cruise at 250mg weekly. I pin on Monday and
    Thursday. I believe it helps keep my levels leveled out by doing it twice vs once. When I was pinning once a week I'd get a huge spike, which was nice, but before my next pin I started feeling flat again. Here's an article Built posted that help convince me to start pinning 2xEW.

    HRT replacement in the published research is 125mg/week; once steady-state is established, this will place most men in the upper third of the reference range one week after their weekly dose. Hubby's on 150mg/week pinned as 75mg twice a week. This puts him just above the top end of normal four days after his biweekly 75mg shot.

    It's amazing how good a guy feels at that level too. It doesn't take a gram of test to feel good.

    That's all I want, to feel good, normal. I've been on medication that has killed my test levels. My body gets so sore, it is almost impossible to recover after moderate intensity workouts, let alone an intense one. I just want to feel like a normal man and desire sex.

    Again, thanks for all the replies.

    My doctor has me on 250mg test cyp a week, spread over 2 pins. I however pin it on Wednesday all at once and do my extra pins on Monday and Friday. Feel great even when cruising.

    started at 250mg 1x a week, I've started splitting it biweekly recently though

    I can definitely feel the drop just from beginning of week to end, I can't imagine some of the trt guys who get once every two weeks or even once monthly injections...
