    Testosterone replacement advice

    I my testosterone is low but not enough to get the doc to subscribe replacement. I have seen a couple doctors. Can anyone advise on what I would need? I have need reading the threads and have learned a lot so I think 100mg a week of test C or E and something to reduce estrogen. I may be interested in cycles at some point but right now I am just looking to shed some of the symptoms of the low T. Thanks!

    Sounds like a plan man. Just find a reputable source and you are g2g. For estrogen I use arimidex .3mg e3d. A lot of guys use anastrozole. You might not even need it at 100mg a week.

    What is your T level? Age? If it's not low enough for two Docs not to prescribe replacement then maybe your not low for your age. You need to start by finding out what your level is then post that up.

    Bishop what is the rest of your blood work show? E2 levels test free levels. 448 is not terrible are you having issues? People want to jump on HRT without thinking (not saying you are) but this is a lifetime of shots for the next 50 years maybe? So please try other things first. diet? whats your body comp now?

    All other blood work came back normal. The doctor says I am just getting old but I have all the symptoms of low test. Other than that, I am very healthy.

    Bishop. Did you see a Dr that specializes in TRT or a general doc? What levels docs find it necessary to give TRT varies a lot from what I've read. I know general docs seem to be a lot more conservative opposed to docs who specialize in TRT.

    At 55, I finally found a Doc to treat me with a 504 t level. I found this Doc at my wifes women's clinic, Women have fucked up hormones from the time they start their periods to well into their late years in life. So I think Doc's who work on women are a little more versed on hormones in general and are more willing to consider the quality of life issue when prescribing hormones. You can ask your pharmacist what Doc's in your area are prescribing test and see if any work in a women's clinic. I have been on 200 test C for 6 weeks now and I feel 10 times better than 6 weeks before I started. And that was with a 504 level. If I could not find a doc soon I was considering this stack, I am not saying anything good or bad about PSL cause I know nothing about them, But this would have been my first run regardlesss of where I got it from......

    Yeah I was probably thinking of Aromasin. I never used that.
