@Miracle7.5

I've learned that IGF1-LR3 is best used in a 6-week cycle, with two weeks off. Thanks for suggesting the doses, which seem low enough not to be problematic. I'll start at 100 "micro"grams per day in the morning, just like with the HGH 2 milligrams. However this would be 7 days/week during cycle.

Anti-aging forums recommend adding 0.5 or 1 milligram of Anastrazole per day when you are injecting Testosterone to keep Estradiol down. I will be trying to add this estrogen inhibitor as it is said to reduce adipose deposition (muscle fat deposits) and increase libido.

If, for some reason I want more libido, thanks for suggesting Bremelanotide. Chemists took Melanotan-II and removed its tanning effects to deliver a libido drug which sounds like the perfect stuff. Taken orally it gave high blood pressure which seems to not be the case with subcutaneous injections, so it is on its way to getting approval for prescription against Erectile Disorder and other forms of libido reduction. It takes 4 hours to kick then allegedly has effects beyond those of Cialis or Viagra for several hours. If like Melanotan-II, it can be embarrassing in social other than a swinger club, as one's stiffy cannot be suppressed.

Regarding testing SHBG (Sex Hormone Binding Globulin) levels, it seems that too much Testosterone can lower these levels and could bring on type 2 diabetes? In any case I see why you say one should monitor this, although low levels would probably be preceded with low libido, as a warning sign? I may get SHBG checked only if it gets hard to get hard for the ladies...

Do you know if you can combine several substances in a single subcutaneous syringe, or must this be avoided at all costs to prevent chemical interactions?  Thanks for preventing an Alpha Male from shapeshifting into a Beta Male due to physiology wussing out...

Some hormones/peptides can be combined/stacked in a single syringe and some cannot.  Anastrozole is really no good for TRT.  You want either Arimidex or Exemestane.  Arimidex is the most common but can cause an estrogen rebound due to it's binding properties and a "slingshot" effect.  Exemestane/Aromasin is an EXTREMELY potent suicide inhibitor with zero rebound.  However, Exemestane cannot be tolerated by some people as some users are very sensitive to it's effects.  It is so potent that very small doses are often effective (e.g. 6.25mg).  You do NOT want to crash your estrogen levels!!!  You will feel like total shit.  You want your estradiol between 20 - 30.  At a TRT dose (100mg - 200mg of T or greater in some cases per week) an AI is not always necessary.  Blood work is the only way you will know for sure.  Like Mr. Miyagi says, "It's all about balance, Daniel-san".  Most TRT patients are prescribed T Cypionate or T Enanthate.  In order to keep blood levels of the hormone stable, you need to inject at least once per week and preferably twice (e.g. Mon/Thur).  Even the long estered version "Nebido" or T Undecanoate really should be injected in smaller doses and more frequently than most physicians suggest.  You end up riding a "roller coaster" of T.  No fun.  Also, low dose HCG should be combined with TRT as it will increase LH and FSH which in turn, will also increase libido.  Again, all this is in an effort to more accurately simulate what the body used to do naturally; most efficiently when you were younger.

I've done plenty of PT-141 (Bremelanotide) in my time.  I almost suffered priapism one time when I foolishly combined it with Cialis.  Once you get all of your hormones at the proper, youthful levels, you won't need ANY supplement to assist in libido or erections.  Did you need Cialis, Levitra, Viagra, PT-141, etc when you were 16 years old?  ... I didn't think so.  My libido and erections are every bit what they were in my teenage years.  If you would like more info on hormone optimization, PM me and I'll share what I know.  ... Or at least a portion of what I've learned... that's a lot of info.

You seem very well versed on this Miracle. Do you ever or anyone else for that matter get a little nervous using any of this? I never used supplements until a few years ago when I felt well I am older now and I need that edge. So one of the things I got in was creatine. Felt great started regaining a lot of lean muscle etc. Then I stopped and I started to feel weak and drained. I was getting a physical and the nurse comes in and tells me I need to talk with the doctor, my urine sample was abnormal. So it turns out I have IGA nephropathy. And long story short , told him what i was on and creatine , happens to very nephrotoxic and may have been what pushed my kidneys over the edge and exasperated the symptoms. So I am curious since you seem so well read on these supplements , do you think that there might be unintended consequences ? Just seeing what your thoughts are. Because I don't know.

Nolvadex will work well also. 20-40 mg of Nolvadex alone should boost your test levels up to 150%. Taking 200 IU of HCG every other day during the cycle plus 20-40 mg of Nolvadex or 0.5 mg-1 mg per day of Anastrozole for post cycle therapy should be enough even for a bodybuilding dose cycle of test and will definitely work a TRT size dose of Test. Just FYI Anastrozole is Arimidex. They are one in the same. Arimidex is actually the trade name that Anastrozole is marketed under.

@Mudball
Providing one is only restoring hormones to youthful levels, there really shouldn't be any negative side effects.  If you exceed HRT levels and venture into supra-physiological levels, side effects will emerge and in some cases, be quite ugly.

@NSY82
Yes, they are the same.  Anastrozole/Arimidex/Adex...  I mentioned this because there is a great number of "research chem companies" that market liquid anastrozole.  Many of these companies offer a bunk product and it is almost always sold as "liquid anastrozole".  As you well know, if estrogen is not controlled and too much T is aromatized, the results can be horrific.  I should have been more clear and stated to make sure that one purchases a pharmaceutical grade AI.

Also, using even a low dose of HCG @ 200IU/EOD long term could result in desensitization of the leydig cells in the testes.  While HCG is a luteinizing hormone mimetic to a degree, it is not identical and the body knows the difference.  It is often prescribed with TRT patients to maintain fertility and help with libido.  If using for TRT, dosing 200IU/2xW should be adequate to maintain fertility, libido and testicular volume.

Of course with the addition of HCG to a TRT protocol, adjustment to the T dose will be required as the HCG will boost endogenous T and also cause a spike in estrogen.  TRT is a gamble and it takes considerable time to find one's "sweet spot" where everything is balanced and the patient's low T symptoms are alleviated.  That's why I prefer the natural route.  Of course at some point, I'll be on TRT for life.  T is the nectar of the gods.

Hi Miracle,

Just for others here - as I had to look it up myself when I ought to know, being on such a regimen myself - TRT stands for Testosterone Replacement Therapy. For those less initiated, HCG means Human Chorionic Gonadotropin also known under the brand name "Pregnyl" which is made from hormones found in the placenta of pregnant Dutch women. But my doses might be a bit strong, as they are 1500iu per flask... and I don't know if this keeps well, it is really a tiny amount of powder in each glass tube. 





"hCG levels increase shortly after implantation, double approximately every 48 hours, reach a peak at 50-75 days, and fall to lower levels in the second and third trimesters. Gonadotropins are biologically active substances responsible for the development of secondary sexual characteristics. FSH and LH are two gonadotropins which are active in both sexes but with different effects in males and females."

SOURCE:  Comments listed beneath the embedded video.


Regarding mixing HGH for injection, for those like me in countries where Bacteriostatic water is unavailable, you can also use sterile water or saline solution. I discovered that if kept well refrigerated (manufacturers warn to never freeze HGH) you can keep it safely for a week, which is the time needed to use up a 10iu batch of HGH for 5 injections at a low daily dose of 2iu. The following source states that it is not enough time for bacteria to develop, hence we can conclude that bacteriostatic water is simply an additional precaution in case one fails to use it as quickly as expected or if one mixes larger batches in advance.


"We will add the bacteriostatic water (or sterile water) to the lyophilized powder [some patients and physicians I've spoken with during my experience of 20years on this product use liquid vitamin B12 to reconstitute] and thus prepare for injection."

"What you choose to reconstitute hGH with depends on how rapidly we use the GH. Bacteriostatic water is basically sterile water with 0.9% Benzyl Alcohol added, and this Alcohol keeps anything from growing in the water, thus making it safe for injection for the longest amount of time, about three to three 1/2 weeks. If the amount of GH in our vial is enough to last for a few weeks at our desired daily dosage then bacteriostatic water is the way to go and diluent of choice. Many users [for bodybuilding use about 2-5 IU's a day] and remember most vials will be used up long before any bacteria begins to grow in the reconstituted hGH. So it's really a personal preference which diluent you use."

Click for SOURCE:  How to use HGH


Just wondering - is there an advantage to using Vitamin B12 in one's syringe? I got physiological serum (basically saline solution) to use as a carrier for the injections, figuring the salt would better reduce bacteria in the fridge than plain sterile water would.

I agree that with practice one can sense the most comfortable dose and frequency of intramuscular Testosterone injections, and I shall be sure to fine tune this better once I start boosting Testosterone also with subcutaneous rHGH and hCG injections. Maybe I won't want to shorten my frequency of shots as planned. My dose is a 250ml vial of T-enanthate every 3 weeks. I had thought of shifting to every 2 weeks, as it's effects decline drastically after 10 days, but maybe I won't need to change that frequency if the additional "supplements" boost my Test levels.


From what you say, Gonadotropin will also raise Estrogen, so I will have to add to my regimen shots of Exemestane/Aromasin to prevent gynecomastia, testicle shrinkage and low sperm count. A year ago I gave up on taking HCG, not knowing how to keep Estrogen under control. Now, I'm ready to give it a whirl since HGH is in the mix. We sure are lucky to have a well of knowledge such as you among us, Miracle-

By the way, at what age do you think you'll need to go on TRT for life? At barely 40 you have some time before you. I've been recently lurking in anti-aging and life extension forums and those guys are on much stronger doses than I would even consider... reassuring me about this experimentation.

@miracle7.5x6

Again, for those like me who are alphabetically challenged:

Hypothalamic Pituitary Testicular Axis (HPTA) is the name given to the system of organs that regulate testosterone production in men. For women, the counterpart is the Hypothalamic Pituitary Ovarian Axis (HPOA).

I was then wondering, having been asked by one of my lady friends, is HGH is also good for women or mostly for men? I worry it would boost her Testosterone and I sure don't want her to look or feel like a man - eeek!

Not that I'm homophobic, but she's the most feminine woman I have ever known and I'd like to keep her that way.

HGH is good for both sexes and can improve lipolysis, skin elasticity and libido.  I promise she will not grow a mustache.

Hi Carlos,

Actually, this is not a forum for BODYBUILDERS, but for a new breed of adventurers exploring the bleeding edge of a small area of that quest.  An elite group of pioneers we could call DICKBUILDERS !

Cheers,

HC

@miracle; about the supplements: you said take the pine pollen every other week. I'm assuming you mean take it for 7 days on, 7 off? Also...do you just take one dropper-full a day? Thanks for elucidating
