TESTOSTERONE : Testosterone is the FTM’s androgen of choice for a variety of reasons. It has excellent androgenic and anabolic properties, and is the substance that is produced naturally within your body. It does have a 5aR metabolite and an aromatase metabolite, so one should consider adding an anti-estrogenic agent if one is supplementing with supraphysiological doses of the drug. If you are prone to hair loss and/or male pattern baldness, you should also consider a 5aR inhibitor. Physicians specializing in hair loss can usually help you find an appropriate one. There are several different testosterone drugs, including testosterone cypionate (Depo-testosterone), testosterone enanthate (Testoviron/Delatestryl), testosterone propionate and testosterone decanoate. Testosterone cypionate and testosterone enanthate are the most common testosterone esters used by FTMs. One possibility that FTMs should consider is a drug called Sustanon 250, which is an injectable drug containing 250mg of four different testosterone esters. It might not be available in your country. Organon is reputable manufacturer of Sustanon 250, but there’s a whole bunch of fake Sustanon out there. Buy it from a REPUTABLE pharmacy. Omnadren 250 is a drug similar to Sustanon 250, but with one different ester that reduces the overall half life by a few days. Omnadren is also faked quite frequently.
d) HRT Failure . The above study did not really address the issue that sometimes a man waits and waits for HRT to fix his issues and it simply never happens. This is not necessarily a disaster, because it often a) means that one has other more critical underlying issues such as hypothyroidism, or b) that the protocol needs tuning. In the case of the latter, high estradiol is a common culprit, since it essentially negates the beneifts of the increased testosterone levels. In both of these cases, it pays to have a knowledgeable and experienced physician overseeing your therapy.
