    I am in SE Pennsylvania and looking for a good HRT Doc. I did a little research and did see Eugene Shippen in Reading as a possible option. I know of the Metabolic Doc (Tom O' Connor) in CT but, as good as he looks, that seems a bit far. At 43 and showing some signs of lower testosterone, I think I could benefit from the HRT. If it is just to get back to normal levels that would be helpful but somewhat disappointing. However, I am more interested in obtaining optimal levels, with out taking far reaching risk. If anyone has a name they would recommend, please throw it out there. I would also be interested in the cost as well. I just complete my first pro hormone cycle (HDrol 50 mg/day for 4 weeks, now running a PCT) and did see some solid improvements (loss some fat and increased weight from 220 to 230). I am not loaded with cash but not broke either so I thought I would research a medical HRT program as an alternative. I have three young kids so a Dr. prescribed and monitored program would bring me a bit more comfort

      Hey, I'm almost 65 years old and want to know what people think about this cycle. I am mesomorph, 5-8, 170, not genetically gifted for muscle. Will this cycle be enough to buff me up to +/- 180 if I train hard and eat right?
      CYCLE: 16 weeks of 3/4 ml testosterone cypionate per week.
      One week off.
      4 weeks of 1 ml HCG at three times a week.
      Off for a week.
      Back on 16 week tes cycle.

            I am not on HRT, but I don't know why people try to stay away from it so much. I don't think it's such a big deal once you figure out the dosing and AI (if needed). One shot per week is not a big deal. I want my Test levels to be optimal so I can progress and feel optimally. So why not just take 1 shot a week. It is pretty simple and easy to do. Just my .02

                  The Dangers of Exogenous (external and synthetic)
                  Testosterone Replacement Therapy

                  One of the most undesirable side effects of exogenous testosterone replacement therapy is the shrinkage of the male genitals, the penile and testes. The medical term for the condition is "testicular atrophy". With prolonged usage, your penis will shrink to the size of your little finger.

                  Now imagine this. You get a high sex drive with the testosterone replacement therapy, yes, but your erected penis is the size of your thumb. Not a very good scenario, isn't it?

                  As a matter of fact, the renown Mayo Clinic lists the following side effects with exogenous (external and synthetic) testosterone replacement therapy:

                  * Cause skin reactions
                  * Cause fluid retention
                  * Cause baldness
                  * Cause or aggravate sleep apnea (brief, repeated cessation of breathing during sleep)
                  * Stimulate non cancerous (benign) growth of the prostate and cause or worsen urinary symptoms
                  * Stimulate growth of prostate cancer that's already present
                  * Enlarge breasts (Gynecomastia)
                  * Stimulate growth of breast cancer that's already present
                  * Cause testicle shrinkage (Testicular atrophy)
                  * Limit sperm production (Infertility)
                  * Stimulate excess blood production (Polycythemia)

                  I'm sure you agree with me. Its not pretty. However the number of prescriptions of testosterone replacement therapy has increase over the years. And the primary reason is I believe the lack of emphasis by doctors and pharmaceutical companies on the negative side effects of the treatment.
                  I actually became a little afraid while reading this then realized it was bs and got mad at myself
