-describe training [some ruin there hormones by over training]
Over the past two years I did a combination of crossfit training, usually 5 days a week, sometimes 6, sometimes even twice a day. Definitley overtrained/underrecovered, which is why I took a month off from all training this past October.

Testes sometimes ache a little, but two md’s have checked them and said they are perfectly fine

Rarely get morning wood anymore, sometimes I get nocturnal erections. General libido has definitley decreased over the past two years.
Are your outer eyebrows sparse? Not that I’ve noticed
Have you used iodized salt for years? Sea salt some times, otherwise not knowingly
Do you get cold easily? Not particularly
When did problems start? Any blows to your head before that? Problems started about a year ago, and no significant blows to the head around that time.
Were things better earlier? Things were definitley better a year and a half ago
More hair before? Not really. I feel like I never completed puberty and got all my hair (my brothers and father have much more)
I apologize if I seem nieve, but I am extremely lost and concerned, and am looking for any help or information. Anyways, I believe that over the past two years I was overtraining/under-recovering, which eventually resulted in me having low testosterone. I have had multiple blood tests to confirm this (will attach some relevant blood work below). As a result, I took a month off of training entirely, in October, and since have been doing significantly less volume/intensity training, in order to recover. In that month off, my symptoms of low t and overtraining noticeably improved (mood, libido, energy), but they still are not optimal. I am looking to figure out if my low t I have is still being caused by overtraining, or if there is another reason that myself and my md’s are missing. I am desperate to increase my testosterone levels, but do not want to do any sort of HRT because a) I am 19 years old, and b) I have ambitions to join the military, which does not allow any sort of HRT. Any help or information regarding my situation/bloodwork is greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance
