Youre only injecting once every 2 weeks? This would lead to some serious rises and falls in blood serum concentration levels. If this is the case, keep your same weekly dose but inject 2x a week. So 400 every 2 weeks becomes 100mg two times a week. Your sensitive nipples are likely do to wild swings in e2 levels that you can attenuate with frequency usually

I'm not sure the MG I will check but yes every other week.I feel great huge gains in the gym but sore nipples I'm not sure if he will change the type of testosterone but I really like this cyp should I do a 1/2 cc every week instead of 1cc ever other week ?

Id look at one variable at a time. I believe youll see success leveraging injection frequency alone. If not, theres always compound selection and total dosing to consider. If youre using 1 cc every 2 weeks that would equate to .25 twice a week. I personally do monday and thurs morning myself. This once every 2 week protocol I see come out of the UK and western Europe with their Sustanon protocols. Far from ideal in my opinion.

Ok thank you, do you think I need a estrogen inhibitor
At TRT doses? In my opinion, almost always no. Most providers will recommend you try modifying frequency. At that point I would personally lower the dosage before Id use an AI long term. They have a list of nasty side effects that you really want to avoid where possible.

again, ensure thats the right dosage though. whatever your biweekly dose is divide it by 4 and inject that on mon and thurs. Should be right as rain in a couple weeks

With very little information, I'll take a stab at this. I doubt you're taking enough Test to cause gyno. My guess is you're over thinking and over reading. TRT is not going to give you "Huge gains in the gym" and you read some place about sore nipples. I bet you keep checking your nips and have made them sore because you won't let them alone.

The real way to tell what's going on is to get to the Dr. and get your TT and E2 checked.

My doc prescribed me 300 mg of Test Cyp every 2 weeks, like you. The half-life is what, 12 days? I split it and do it weekly, keeps the hormone levels more even.

Like I said, it was a guess. My recommendation on blood work still stands.

Yeah, get bloodwork. You can get your E2 checked for $50 out of pocket, if you want to check it without your doctor being involved.

You can also get a full CBC, CMP, total test, free test, and E2... all LC/MS-MS (best measurement) for like $100 out of pocket.

Privatemdlabs, if you sign up you get a 10% off coupon you can use.

Know what your numbers were before and after. They normally draw before starting you on trt and every now and then which would be sufficient. My personal opinion is split and 100mg wkly. The important thing would be consistency. Once you develop a protocol stick with it.

Some times I cycle off for about 2 months meanwhile saving up my doses. Then I'll hit it harder starting again with 200mg every week until I run back down and continue my normal protocol. Its a good jump/restart start.

A lot of guys get sensitive nipples at the beginning of trt. It’s just the hormones balancing out.

I dose every 3.5 days. Sunday night and Thursday morning. Try that and see if that doesn’t completely solve it. Gyno and sore nipples are not one and the same. Gyno is a lump forming behind the nipple. Sore nip is common when starting trt. Hit me about week 6-8 if I remember right.

Most guys don’t need AI. I do, but you probably dont
