What is your dose of TRT? I know many will argue TRT is just as healthy as fully natural but I think the data is still ambigous there.
I was surprised to find that going from 100-150mg TRT down to just HCG/HMG did not seem to benefit my lipids. 2mg of arimidex per week did drop my HDL but surprisingly it's no better now natural compared to 100-150mg TRT + 1mg arimidex. LDL and Trigs are about the same as well.
Pretty low...I'm prescribed like 160 (or maybe it's 180 I don't even remember) but I usually stick to 120mgs a week or even down to 100. Interestingly my test levels right now on the HCG are like 900 (that's obviously artificially boosting my bodies production) and on my 100mgs of trt I'm at like 700-900. My estrogen is quite high right now though but I feel like a million bucks.
It's probably right that if test levels are similar there is no health benefits from being on or off trt vs hcg I just think I'm accustomed to doing this so I do. My crit levels also stay a bit lower on the hcg vs trt. This year it is for the distinct purpose of getting my wife pregnant
