My calfs look normal. They looked like women’s before. Skinny all the way up… and barely any hair. Now I actually have normal hair growth on the top 4/5ths … bottom still minimal. Legs and facial hair are the only other areas I’ve noticed increase hair growth.
I would say my arms and chest look thicker, not really muscular… but, my shoulder joints feel great… I had 2 x-rays over the past 5yrs show tendinothopy both times. I don’t feel anything. I had periods where I did have increased soreness and felt like swelling in my feet, as I was adjusting my dose… so I seemed to have gotten past that.
I’m still a work in progress, but, just to throw out some of the negatives… my orgasm seems to still be declining more and more. Hcg hasn’t really done much to change that, as of yet, anyways. I had bouts of increased anxiety and a feeling of pressure or something in my chest, neck at times… went away when I lowered my dose from the 120mg/wk high. Penis, balls, sensitivity worse with test. Maybe 15% improvement since hcg. Hope it continues. Unfortunately, I think even improvement there won’t help my orgasm.
I’ve had T and E2 in all sorts of ranges from bottom 1/3rd to 50% above range high… the best I felt was in the “honeymoon” period as they call it, when both values were in the top 1/3rd. More is better, to a point. And the point is probably a pretty tight range.
I’m still tinkering and I’m seeing a doctor who i think is top notch… sucks it’s for life but I think for me, it’s a better life. I know some get worse.
