Question:
By: Hiker001 Date added: 2 weeks ago
Hello follow up to my last question. I'm on TRT for past 5 months give or take a few weeks. I'm pinning 1 x weekly with Geneza Test Cyp at approx 150-170mg per pin. Had blood done and my hemacrit and hemoglobin were very slightly high. I received my Testostrone and free test results today and I feel they are high for such a small dose. Testosterone was 2200 and my Free Testosterone was 453. Thoughts?

Did you get blood work on the day of pin before you pin. That will give you best numbers

I pin on Sundays and my blood work was the Friday afterwards.

Damn! I'm on 200/wk cyp pinned twice (100 Tues +Fri) and my numbers are 1100 total and 350 free. That's through my doctor.Sounds like Geneza is Next Level dosed, or you are some sort of genetic freak

TRT will raise hemocrit, get used to blood donations.  Also, when starting TRT, doctors usually start you lower. They normal start low, run bloods, then up if necessary.  For TRT, you want the lowest effective dose as there are some sides, such as hemocrit.  Donate blood regularly and drink more water.  I would personally recommend dropping to 100mg a weem and rerun bloods.  Lots of folks always say you need 200 or such for TRT....that may be true for some who don't respond well, but that's not accurate for a lot.  Even after numerous cycles (less fressh receptors), I cruise at 125mg. My brother has been TRT for 4 years and runs about 100mg a week, but he pins 50mg twice a week of cyp.  I do 1ml of 250mg nebido (Test Undec) every two weeks. Drop it, you're way to anabolic for a cruise/trt.

Will do, I'll drop to 100 mg and go from there. I wish I would've gotten my estrogen checked . I think I'll lower dosage and then retest in 5 weeks. I'll also donate blood.

With running the cyp ester, you may want to consider twice a week pins. For TRT, its absolutely fine to run 100mg once a week, but you see significant downfall at about 4 days in test levels. When I referenced my brother running cyp, when he went to twice a week oins he actually lowered his dose to 40mg twice a week and felt better at 80mg a week split into 2 vs 100mg for once a week. He has an RX and can travel with it, so I understand not all can do that. That's why I run nebido.

Recommend cutting the dose in half, run for 4-5 weeks then get tested again.  For weekly admistration make sure you do labs 3 days after injection...no sooner.  Your RBC will come down but in the meantime you can donate a pint, ensure you're drinking a ton of water and ensure you aren't having apnea events during sleep.  What was your hemoglobin levels? Anything 17.8 and higher should be a concern. Good luck...stay swole!

Hemoglobin was 17.2. Hemocrit 50.3. Per the scale I was .1 high on hemoglobin and .3 high on Hemocrit. I did get blood 5 days after the weekly pin too.

It'll get into the 16's when you cut your dose. 17.2 is the high side of normal but not super bad.

Donate blood to lower your hematocrit levels.
