Newbie. Looking for input

Hello all. I am curious about testosterone. I’ve taken test c before and want to know what would be best for me. I have low t and want to increase sex drive, energy levels etc. (if I get some muscle increase that would def be a bonus, but not my main goal). What type of test do you recommend, and how much how often? Thanks.

Have you been to the trt doctor yet?

Welcome to UGM brother I just wanted to see if you have gotten bloodwork because to say how much to take would depend on that.
Which to get I would reccomend any sponsor at ugmuscle.com
Hit me up anytime brother

I got it done at the va. Roughly 450 ng/dL. It’s low but not low enough for them to prescribe me something.

Thanks brother.

@Tredizzel17 welcome to UGM. A typical replacement dose of testosterone for TRT is 150-200mg/week using TestC. The protocol also will include the aromatize inhibitor Arimidex dosed at .5mg 2X per week. Depending on your age some individuals will choose to use HCG to mitigate testicular atrophy. Blood donations every 8 weeks are typically recommended.

Everything above is individually based and requires regular blood work to adjust to the dosing protocol that works for the individual.

I recommend seeing an ND that specializes in TRT before self prescribing. A self hack to reduce your testosterone blood serum levels before you have your initial blood draw is to drink a can of coke. This will reduce your serum levels of testosterone by as much as 25%. That might be enough to make you a TRT candidate. Once you have 6-12 months under medical supervision you should have gained enough experience to self prescribe.

If you have any other questions don’t hesitate to post them.

Tough choice to make at an existing level of 450 ng/dl

keep in mind this is a one way journey for the most part and a life long commitment.

You need to do a TON of research if you want to be your own Dr. there is a lot of things to factor in to a TRT program.

If you can afford to, go to a TRT clinic. If youre poor than read and read and read some more before jumping on the program.

Right on @Burrr. I will add to that by saying TRT is not a magic bullet to better health but in many cases does lead to the individual making positive decisions in other areas of their life that allows TRT to be more beneficial. TRT is just a link in the chain for a healthy lifestyle.
