1.5 Months Off TRT Cold Turkey Lab Work - Low LH & Low Test

I was on TRT for ~2.5-3 years. First year was life-changing. Then I started getting hypertension and brutal headaches in the back of my neck. Lowering my dose did nothing. I switched from injections to androgel, still brutal headaches. Came off and headaches went away. No PCT as endo didn’t give me Clomid and I told him I was coming off. I was 170-340 ng/dL natural. Diagnosed with normosmic idiopathic hypogonadtropic hypogonadism.

My hypothalamus isn’t doing much. Should I do Clomid for 30 days or see if nature takes back over?

Well would you stay on clomid indefinitely? Cause i think you’ll just be back to awful numbers again when you go off it.

Your numbers look a lot like mine before trt.

No. Wanted to see if I could just get back to 300’s as I was naturally before I started. Maybe I have to accept being on injections for life. Just sucks.

I’d wait another month or two and retest. I bet it goes up a little more.

@oppenheimer, have you considered doing a trial of thyroid treatment yet?

No. I wish I had gotten that tested again.

You’re at the point where you’re stuck in limbo, thyroid is the next step. All your symptoms are expected with someone who has poor thyroid function attempting TRT.

As far as lab testing goes, having testosterone (or Free T) in the low normal range, you can still have problems with low normal Free T3 levels if they are outside of what’s normal for you.
