Re: Depo Testosterone, Or Cypionate?
Were tests done to find out why the testosterone was low? Was the thyroid tested? many things can cause the low testosterone.
If you are planning on having children, was HCG injections considered? This will make the testicles produce more sperm & testosterone if they are functional.
Long term injection of testosterone can shrink the testicles & stop production of sperm & any natural testosterone.
What was your testosterone level before the injections were started? What was the range for the tests? At your age the "T" levels should be in the upper 1/4 of the "normal" range.
What is the"T" dosage in mg? Most injections are weekly at about 100mg. This is to reduce the conversion of "T" to E2 on the day of the injection.
If the E2 is in the upper half of the "normal", you will probably start growing boobs. At your age it should be in the lower 1/4 of the "normal" range.
The E2 can be reduced if it gets too high, Usually the body will self regulate if the Testosterone:Estrogen E2 ratio is over 20 to 1.
What was your estrogen E2 level before the "T" injections were started?
What was the range?
Hormone tests, male & female, should be done every couple of months at the start to adjust your dosage levels to the correct amount. Then about every 6 months after that.
Always get a copy of the actual test results of youyr hormones for your records.
