The only thing I don’t like about once a week is even tho you FEEL ok, your TT probably dropped almost half of its numbers by the time you inject again and hormones fluctuations like that are a lot more likely to raise hemoglobins and hematocrits than very stable hormones. That’s just 1 exemple. It’s not always just about so I feel good or not. Once a week is just not optimal even though you’ll be okay if you do it.

This is why I switched up to twice a week just to see what that looks like when I get bloods done again maybe it's minimal and once is fine but it doesn't hurt to try minus pinning an extra time a week.

I went to mon/wed/fri injects with a 1/2 inch slin pin IM.

Seemed to help with my aromatization issues, and weirdly enough some sleep issues, compared to when I was twice a week. I'm getting away with a quarter tab of arimidex once a week and it keeps my E2 right around 80.

I went to twice a week for convenience sake and also because that’s the protocol my dr wanted me to try, so thought might as well check it out. My shgb is low, so is it supposed to help. Sorry, I wished had numbers that I can compare to (I don’t have my previous labs.)

how much are you injecting per week, including HCG?

I’m on 140ml T. 250 hcg, twice weekly.

I was prescribed anastrozole, .25 twice per week

My estrogen and estradiol were pretty high.
After one week on anastrozole I don’t feel much change, but will see. Hopefully this helps without crashing my estrogen/estradiol levels.

Curious how often everyone is doing their injections? I’ve been doing them once a week. Wondering if I should switch to twice a week. Just tired of pinning to be honest lol
I do once a week 5-6 days.
But also I do T-400 which is partly undecanoate ester that lasts a very long time. So 2 weeks would be doable.
But once a week is much better.
The enanthate, cypionate and whatever else in T-400 would wear off by the beginning of week 2.

Once a week on Fridays for me. I notice no difference between once or twice a week with Test E .
Same here, didn't notice much of a difference as well plus don't want scar tissue developing on my current sites, glutes are full of it and can't go there anymore...

slin pins for awhile now twice a week, quite easy at TRT levels.

Might transition to Syn's Test U so I can do once a week and also travel/vacation and get away with not worrying about it for awhile.

Every 3.5 days for me. Thinking of going to every other day to see if it cuts down on how much I aromatize. I gotta take way more AI than I like to keep my numbers where the dr likes them.

I hate pinning as well, sometimes I look forward to it lol.
I always pin with 2 days apart, but sometimes while cruising I like to only pin once every 7 days using long ester Testosterones .

You're tired of pinning but wondering if you should switch ???
Are you experiencing and sides from 1x a week injections? If not then why would you even consider it?

1x per week for this guy.
Didn’t really notice any difference with 2x/week.

Don’t see any need to switch.

If you want to reduce the need for AI- reduce total volume of test, reduce pinning frequency and lose some body fat. Of course those are generalities.
But relatively sound advice from my experience.

I am the lowest I’ve ever been for bf. 14-16%. going to try EOD injections after I do bloodwork next month to try and see if that helps with the acne and need for ai. I don’t feel bad with the E2 on the higher end but my TRT doc won’t cut me loose until it’s where she wants to see it.

once a week works for me but i do notice a small difference eod but i hate pinning lol
once a week .
The secret that does it for me is T-400!
Once a week you get the enanthate and cypionate going. But you also have the extra from undecanoate, (which is a long acting ester)
So your levels are more stable than taking enanthate or cypionate alone.
At least from my experience I dont feel a single drop different with T-400 once a week.

For me twice a week would feel like a waste of time,needles, effort and patience during my cycle. Would just drive me mad.

But of course you cant always feel hormone levels. So best to have it monitored.

How bad do some of ya'll aromatize if TRT has you needing an AI? I have run between 100-150mg test TRT for years and my Estro doesnt move. I can imagine what it would be for you guys on a cycle.

I'm running a heavy cruise atm of 225mg test + 200 primo, and it took 4 weeks for my estrogen to get high enough to give me tender nipples. Normally, I aromatise just looking at test. 500mg had me needing 12.5mg of aromasin daily, at 250 I'm taking 12.5mg on pin days
