Bro I’ve been running cyp once a week for over a decade..
OMG did I just say decade..holy fuck me old. 47 on trt for that long..
Tried it 2x and 1x a week. 1 x is the best. And easiest. No AI unless you need it.
Are you seeing a dr or are you in your own “trt”.
Because trt is for life not for a short haul…
Get blood work done and see.

I have a lump that I’ve had for years.
300mg a week does not flare it up at all. And that’s my weekly dose.
So I doubt 140 is going to make anyone need a ai. But only bloods will tell. ✌️
^^^^^^^^^^^^^I've been on same program for about 8 years, every now and then I'll run sust. & mast, my AI stays in check.

Supposedly test cyp can be injected subQ. Is it worth the hassles of grabbing at my belly fat (dad bod)??

Before TRT, I was depressed, fat and always anxious. I feel awesome now. It took forever to get to this protocol and am glad to do daily to feel good. Plus it's subq with a 30 inch insulin syringe. Don't even feel it.

I felt like I was hungover 24/7.
Was absolutely fucked

Don’t do it. Tried it and had a horrible experience… injection spot blew up for a week and it was bad. Thought I had a full blown infection from it. Took two weeks for it to go down….
The size of a half dollar …
This is my experience. Some others may be different..
But I use test prop and put a full ml. Don’t kmow if this had something to do with it or not.
I would never try it again..

I use Cyp, have injected SubQ.

Bloodwork came back identical. I split the dose up to 2x/week injections so they'd be smaller, if I recall correctly.

A little site irritation, small swelling/itch under the skin for a few days.

Hey everyone, I am not on TRT yet but have been researching. I found this chart on T Nation that made more sense with what is going on visually.
This was for 160 mg/week
View attachment 28658

You can see the average would basically be the same for weekly vs twice weekly but just such smaller variance in the peaks and troughs.
I imagine he used the 4 data points that are labeled on the chart to feed into an excel model that produced the blue and orange lines.
That post also mentioned that everyone has a different volume of distribution and clearance rate so you can't just take 160mg/week and expect to mirror that chart. It is also why someone else's dosage is not really relevant in general.
Google steroid plotter.

And sub q injections suck balls ime. As mentioned above, I felt as if I had an infection for about a week before it subsided.

I've been on low dose once a week Test C for TRT with no issues.

Switched to same schedule/dose Test U a few weeks ago, thinking potentially more stable blood levels for long term health. Haven't notice any difference, and most likely wont.

Started 100mg/week 20 years ago. Now do more frequent. More frequent injection lower the amount of estrogen conversion/clearance for many so that can be a plus along with more consistent levels.

Why did you switch if you were having no issues? 🤔

Our natural levels are not stable.

The only time I ever notice a difference between once or twice a week is when I’m running 600+ test. I get way worse acne injecting once a week.

With TRT, no difference at all.

Just kind of experimenting on myself, lol.

Contemplating stretching out the inj schedule to once every 10 days or 2 weeks in the future. Thinking of going for another few weeks, weekly schedule on Test U before extending inj schedule. Kind of a front loading process for 20 day half life Test U to stabilize.

Yea good point. I recall reading something about endogenous test is released via pulses of LH and/or FSH. Possibly quite a bit of fluctuation in plasma T levels over a 24 hr period or even hour to hour.

When I went to one of those cash HRT clinics, I received 250 mg of Sustanon per week until my work schedule changed. Then they switched me to 200 mg of Enanthate every other week, kept my Anastrozole at 1 mg per week, and crashed my estradiol. It was crashed so bad, it took about 8 weeks for it to register a 6 on the sensitive test with 160 mg of Testosterone cypionate per week split into 2 injections AND 1,500 iU HCG per week, again broken up among 2 injections.


All I can say is fuck that doctor and I'm looking forward to watching him lose his medical license!

My estradiol came back at 5 once. One of the worst times I've ever felt. It was from aromasin too and took forever to recover

I do not understand this stable thing…
Is it really that bad if you do a shot once a week..
Is it really noticable this “stable thing””
Not really sure what people are referring too. Does it make you feel any different.
Nope, unless your blasting!
