If your test dose is too high you will need the HCG. If your test dose is where it should be, theoretically you should not need the HCG while on replacement only. The only way to find out is through blood work, and consulting with your Doc.

 Cry

I was on a long cycle and when I came down my PC therapy didn't cut it. I believe I didn't use enough HCG. After a few months of hoping to clean myself up, in preperation of my next cycle I found myself losing everything. MY sex drive was shot and I was lossing muscle like crazy, putting on bodyfat and feeling very tired. I went to the doctor's for blood work, my test levels were scary low. I was then sent to my urologist. Who did more blood work to discover my LH was virually non existent. He told me he'd put me on HCG again hoping to up start my system.
I was with him last Tuesday and asked if I could self administer ofcourse he told me no because it's an IM shot. He then said he would check the proper and most current protocol and get back to me with an appointment which was to be in 2 days and I haven't heard from him. Is he expecting me to take care of business and if so what would be the best protocol. Fellas I'm seriously freaking out, I want to get my body normal so I can get ready for spring?

Good idea if we compiled a small list of what you ought to get checked and in order of priority...

Sort of like this:

Cholesterol
kidney numbers
liver numbers (important on oxy)
glucose tolerance (important on GH)

etc...so next to the test you can add which tests are more important on which drugs.

Good read. Now I'm the idiot who has blood drawn and should have read this first before going to the clinic lol!

I was asking the doc lot's of questions and she was kinda not wanting to check everything off, but will get news from what was checked nontheless. I guess if the news is bad, they will want more tests done and I will have more info to go from.

Still, I should have gone there armed with more info...

I've learned that Doctors like to have educated patients.  My Doctor doesn't mind answering educated questions and likes when i ask questions about my results.  When bad results come back, it's easier to have an educated discussion over the plan of action if you understand the basics.

Indeed, she looked at me for the explanations as to why my liver enzymes were at 85 (normal for guys who train and eat the way we do but high on the test...) my only off reading was that.

She also assumed I knew the proper/ideal ranges as she was giving me the numbers, because I do really appear (hate to say this) smarter than I am, lol...
