Three Month Lupron Injection

Iím due to have my third three month Lupron injection in approx two weeks. I had my psa and testosterone tested a few days ago. Psa was 0.1 and testosterone was 0.2.

As my testosterone is below the castrate level, is it necessary to have the next injection as planned. Itís obvious that the three month Lupron injection suppresses the testosterone longer than three months.
Would it not be better to monitor the testosterone and apply the injection when a rise is indicated.

One other point how long can one expect before psa is reduced to undedectable when on HT. As my last two psa readings have been 0.1 I did expect the latest to below 0.1.
