    Reasons why the 1x inj every 2-3 weeks protocol is 8-10 years outdated!!!

    graph2.jpg

    This is why the protocol for 1 injection every 2-3 weeks of Test Cyp and Enanthate is 8-10 years out dated. Look at the graph.. This is the true biological half-life of T Cyp/Enan as it relates to serum T. Exogenous Test peaks serum T between 24-48 hours and slowly falls back to baseline by day 9. For men on Testosterone only (no clomid or HCG therapy) they are often lower than baseline having levels lower than when they even started due to HPTA suppression. This pretty much equals feeling like crap week 2 and week 3. Men using this protocol experience this rollar-coaster hormone effect as they feel energized and optimal for the first 5 or 6 days then very weak and symptomatic week 2-3.

    Whats ideal?-- 1x week injections at the very least IM. My personal favorite-- 1 injection every 3 days SQ. Different protocols are really what's ideal for the patients lifestyle.


    Reasons why the 1 injection every 2-3 weeks protocol is still around?
    1)quite simply lack of education. The dosing directions that come from most of the commercially avaliable manufacturer of test cyp and E STILL say "Inject 200mg of every 2-3 weeks." WRONG!! Somebody forgot the difference between the physical half-life and the biological half-life.
    2) Majority of doctors learn little about injectables because they only learn TRT from their Androgel medical rep. Sad but true.

    Men using this protocol statistically have more superphysiologic side effects as well. polycythemia (higher RBC/hematocrit) putting themselves at risks of DVT (blood clot) and PE. (Pulmonary embolism) and higher rate of estrogen aromatase.

    Could you explain why SubQ injections every 3 days is your favorite? Also, are all the programs doctors well versed in the SubQ option or will I need to convince mine?

    This is not new information as we have years of data showing absorption is great and many men actually prefer this delivery due to the ease of the injection technique over intramuscular.

    Subcutaneous injections are generally smaller doses given more frequently throughout the week than Intramuscular.

    This produces multiple serum testosterone peaks throughout the week best replicating our bodys natural testosterone production rhythm.

    This also aids in a more even distribution of testosterone which can actually reduce the aromatase conversion from testosterone to estrogen

    So men switching from the once a week intramuscular method to a twice a week subcutaneous method may find that they feel better and no longer have the need for an aromatase inhibitor like anastrozole. This is all supported by patient data gathered from our physician partners.

    I guess I'll switch to 100 mg a week from the 200 mg every two weeks.
