    [well most of you know I'm on HRT after having tested at about 290 on a "normal" scale of 240-830, keep in mind the "normal" scale has to encompass 18 year old surging males to 85 year old geriatrics.. so being 21 and at 290 was not particularly normal even though it fell within the scale. anyway, i started taking test-cyp shots a few months ago @ 300mg/mo and felt no difference, it was upped to 450mg and I started noticing a difference.. got my level tested last tuesday and it came back @ 914...i might drop the dosage down to 400mg/mo, but i am pleased. :big grin:]

  15. You didn't expect your natural testosterone levels to stay the same, did you? When you inject testosterone, your body shuts down production of natural testosterone. Your situation is Normal under the circumstances.

    I'm wondering, when they do it like that does it fully shut down your natural production? like do you have any balls right now?

    Makes me want to get my bloodwork done just for fun and comparison purposes. See how my natural test levels are since I'm just about 30.

    3 years+ on HRT....from what I've heard from docs they'll put you on HCG to mimic LH for a few months to get you back in shape for kids.
     
  24. uhhh what? Do some research before you start juicing yourself, n00b.
