Eventually, I'll get around to it. But I'm not too enthusiastic about having something glued to my skin all day. OTOH, if I were having problems getting other TRT protocols to work right, I'd be in a bigger hurry to try it.

Pros:
Steady T levels and subsequent minimal and steady E2 response.
Ease of use - rotate application sites to avoid skin irritation.


Cons:
If your Free T requirements are high, the patch might not be able to get you there. It can only get your Total T into the 500s/600s. IIRC.

You're wearing a patch stuck to your skin and all the inconvenience issues that come along with it. Like if you go to the gym and need to shower afterwards.

If yur talkin to me, I am not sure where you got the notion. I think a PATCH is the best thing since sliced bread and ESPECIALLY AS COMPARED TO CREAMS... I just cant get them cause my insurance has made me a BITCH....

But I am not sure where you interpreted that. I think they may have a better effective application than CYP injectible when you consider the REAL rate of poor injection technique and principle that occurs....

I also think it would be an awsome experiment to take a test only BB and give him enough patches to compare to his normal 400-800mg workout protocol and see how they stack up.... I wager the average fit athelete would need only 75% of the injectivble dose and may only complain due to the loss of his usual E2 bloat - Figuratively and not so realistically speaking......

Did the patch for about 6 mts. It was good at first but eventually caused skin irritation even with site rotation . More of a pain in the ass than gel. But not as much as the Pin. lol

Yeah, but you were using the patch as a sublingual.

I dont know if you have ever seen a patch, or used one. I have not used one but seen one brand. THEY STICK LIKE A BASTARD FROM HELL. And who gives a shit about whats planted on your hip in the shower. But the one I saw you AINT getting off without a prybar. LOL. And confrimed by the user. FYI, if they made nicotine patches like this they might actually work.....

Seen, not used.

Some guys wouldnt want to play 20-questions after been seen in the shower/locker with a patch on their skin.

Glue that's too strong is just about the opposite end of the same problem as glue that's too weak, do you think?

Lol yeah its not the best to have something glued to your skin. I agree.

But the delivery is fairly steady and consistent which is good. And less chance of screwing up the dose bc the patch does it for you.

Yeah the gym issue is a bitch for sure.
