    Default How long did it take to feel good after starting TRT.

    Hey guys, as the title says, How long did it take for you to feel "normal" or good after starting TRT. I'm on 9 weeks and still feel like crap, can't lose weight, tired all the time and developed a small case of gyno even tho Estradiol is low. I'm in touch with TRT doc and we are in the process of making adjustments but I'm just wondering how long this will take because I really feel like crap and am beginning to wonder if this is worth it. FYI, here is my protocol: 200mg Test Cyp/250iu hCG per week. AI discontinued after lab results showed estradiol was low.

    Should have happened by now. I was feeling mine within 2-3 weeks and they say that it takes full effect within 5 weeks. If you are getting gyno already, the test is definitely there. They just need to give you something to fight the gyno, or you can get some anti-e or nolva bloat at the MuscleChemistry store to help. Also, they should check your blood to see where your levels are at and adjust them accordingly.

    Yeah, Im with OX, you might need to have a look elsewhere for why your feeling the way you are. 9 weeks at 200mg a week of cypionate , truth be told, you should be feeling not just better but great at this point!

    I was on an aromitase inhibitor but when my labs came back my estrogen was too low so they told me to come off. So I dont think anti-E or nolv will help.

    Normal amount of work stress. Money and relationship is fine. I don't sleep well even though I'm tired.

    yeah, sounds that way to me, especially with your hormone levels being taken care of through trt, and all the outside life influences you say are normal or ok. So i would venture to guess it may be a seratonin or dopamine type thing?

    Maybe look into some OTC Neuro Boosters, or ask your doctor, he should certainly know their are other issues if you still feel this way at 9 weeks of test cyp, espeically considering 200mg a week is a solid trt dosage and should certainly yield positive mood elevations!

    I truly hope you figure it out daddio! Im just taking shots in the dark here as my wife is clinically depressed, she had to take a leave of absence from teaching last year due to depression, which started after she had given birth to our twins 5 years ago.

    Chemicals change shit happens, its nothing to be embarressed over nor quiet about, ESPECIALLY QUIET ABOUT! take care of yourself daddio!!

    Thanks for the help guys. I'm gonna see how things go after the Arimidex clears my system. If things don't get better, I will look into treatment for depression.

    Presser is right! You need to get looked at brother. I will never forget my dad telling me that he wished he had the type of help available when he was younger. He said it would have changed his life for the better.

    I spent 10 years on antidepressants, then started TRT and have been off them for a year.

    Keep us up to date!
