  5. LOW T & TRT

    Regarding the injections.... it’s time to just man up now, you don’t have no test anymore.
  6. LOW T & TRT

    Yeah alot of people use 18's for drawing. I personally switched to 21s for drawing because I heat mine before anyway and it doesn't have the same impact on the vial rubber stopper. (Have had shitty rubber stoppers get loose when drawing around the needle before). Anyways, for injection ask, but if they don't already, ask for 25 gauge for injection. I don't know if it's anything to do with the solution or not, or that variant of Test in particular. But as an aside some nurses don't seem to be that good at pinning lol. I'd rather do it myself than let half of them do it.
  7. After quite a lot of research the best I could come up with in NZ was Eric Thorstensen <e.thorstensen@auckland.ac.nz> . He stated that “Estradiol is very difficult to measure to low levels because of the nature of the way it ionises, at best I can measure to 10pg/mL”. He went on to say: “The new(ish) Estradiol 3 assay for Roche analysers has a limit of detection of 5pg/mL which is better than I can measure, I actually use it instead of my LCMSMS method for low samples (plasma)”. I asked the same questions of DiscountedLabs.com in the USA who wrote: “I spoke with a technician at labcorp and he said that the Sensitive Estradiol test lowest range it will read is 5 and any levels lower than that would be reported as less than 5”. No units were stated in the reply. The ticket question number was: 3080 <info@discountedlabs.com> I didn’t follow up because I found that I have a high PSA level ….. My focus has moved to that.

  9. LOW T & TRT

    To be honest I don't remember, I did ask about the gauge on my first injection but this was over a year ago - but I'll ask the nurse next time, it should be around an 18 though for drawing and injecting that they have been using for me - it hurts when it goes in but it does go in very fast. the injections were all given into the outer side of the glute to avoid the sciatic nerve
  10. Be kinda interested in this too - as far as I'm aware the E2 test done by Labtests is intended for females and not males so results may not be worth bothering for
  11. LOW T & TRT

    It all depends how the doctor words your prescription as to whether you can collect all repeats at once or collect them after certain dates. Pharmacies are essentially just businesses, they buy medicine from wholesalers and have monthly accounts they pay. It isn’t good business practise to hold items that don’t sell. Businesses like pharmacy like fast turnover of product. Most wholesalers offer same or next day delivery anyway, so for medicine that is expensive to hold or not commonly asked for this is best option.
  12. LOW T & TRT

    Out of curiosity, what gauge needle do you inject with? And what sites do you inject?

  17. LOW T & TRT

    Oh geez, very keen to hear your thoughts on this I've never self injected anything but Reandron is easily the worst TRT to try and self inject from my own research - if you can do it yourself I'd be keen to hear your steps to do so I get a nurse to do mine, I'd had about 10 of these injections now at 10 week intervals and it doesn't get any better - they still hurt like shit every time and I can't sit properly afterwards for 2 days Daz's advice to keep the vial warm is very good, the warmer the solution the easier it will go in, you can even keep the vial near your groin to get it warm It's also interesting that you got 3 vials at once - I'd had 3 vials subscribed at once too, but the pharmacy always puts a minimum waiting period before I can collect the next. Also the first time I tried to find Reandron was a bit of a nightmare, I had to visit 5 pharmacies, eventually gave up and asked the closest one to me to just order some in. Now they always keep one for me as I collect from the same place. The impression I got is pharmacies are unlikely to carry stock of this in great numbers, either more people getting subscriptions for other esters or just not many people near me on TRT since the pharmacies around here told me they didn't stock that item

    I'll take that as a no.
  21. Newbie.

    Words of wisdom right there. Thank you
  22. Newbie.

    Welcome mate. Good to have you here. It's true your test levels will decrease as you get older, but typically oldies still have a few other advantages over the young guys... like focus, patience and commitment - all of which will do more for your gains over time than a young guy with high test levels who half-asses it at the gym. Go hard!
  23. My brothers & sisters!

    I think there's a lot of truth in what you just posted. More than many would admit to themselves, let alone others. Kudos for such a brutally honest self assessment, mate! Could not agree more. Hormones throw our emotions off balance, so unless you're completely stable mentally and emotionally, adding AAS into the mix is a recipe for disaster. Trouble is, many unstable people think AAS will be their cure.
  24. SARMS

    Totally with you on the lgd there. I'm currently running 25mg ostarine, 20mg cardarine as well as HcGenerate, clomid and nolvadex and loving it! Think I'm going to run ostarine later this summer as a standalone bridge 😃
  25. SARMS

    Maybe, maybe, ostarine during PCT. LGD, no, itll inhibit hPTA recovery. Ostarine may as well but at a low dose (5mg or less) your LH/FSH recovery shouldnt be impacted. Only problem (or risk) is that its possible your ostarine may not be ostarine at all. Personally, if Im going to use drugs during PCT Id prefer a SERM (clomid, or torem, or better yet enclomiphene) and/or an AI (exem).
  26. Newbie.

    Hello team, I have signed up today, after finding you all several times, in my google searching's for 'making some gains as a senior' I guess I am a senior, in the bodybuilding world at 47 years? I have trained on and off throughout my life, however just went serious this year, I had a weigh in this morning and still on track: 175 cm's 93.7 kgs 14.7 % My goal........100 kgs @ 12% .........OK you can stop laughing now, I know that is a big ask at my age with lowering test levels etc etc but aim high right? Eat, eat, eat, train and sleep..... Looking forward to reading through the knowledge available, hello again.
  27. SARMS

    Oh nice. I ran lgd with test and eq. And I got the feeling the SARM was competing for receptors. Wasn’t seeing much gain and as soon as I dropped the LGD, 💥 boom 💥 I just blew up. I ended up aborting this cycle at 7 weeks anyway but lessen learned for next time. I prefer to run sarms as a stand-alone from now on. Thoughts on SARMS in pct?
  28. SARMS

    Yeah the two SARMS I mentioned previously. Took with test and seemed good. Benched 180 for 5 reps etc on it which I hadn't done in ages. That was a couple months ago now though and haven't been going gym lately
  29. SARMS

    Update on the sarms OP? Did you end up running anything?
