Hi, I’m 20 Y/O, 178lbs, probably around 15-16% body fat right now. Have trained for a number of years and watch my diet. Am currently on a mild cut so watch everything i eat, count macros etc etc. and am not in a stupid deficit or on any silly diet (400 kcal deficit each day, adequate protein,carb and fat intake).
Going to keep this relatively simple as i made a post before and it was far too long so no-one would read it!
My past - done a 10 week test e only cycle just before christmas last year (around 16 months ago) - i was 19 i know i was too young, i regret it hugely. i took the precautions i believed were neccessary at the time to do it properly, taking adex on cycle and a proper pct which seemed to be the standard for a 10 week test e cycle consisting of both nolva and clomid, starting 2 weeks post pct and lasting for 4 weeks. fast forward to today and i’ve still not fully recovered, and after endless meetings with my gp’s just for them to come back to me and say everything is fine and its all in my head because my testosterone levels are just about in the reference range. anyways, after much research i believed my problem was elevated e2 for a number of reasons and so started to take adex to bring it down on my own but wasn’t really successful, never being able to reach the much talked about sweet spot. I stopped taking it and started to take only DIM and started all the necessary possible precautions to bring my bodies hormone levels back to where they should be, but nothing has changed.
The problem. I have no sex drive at all, libido is non-existent, never get morning wood at all, penis is constantly lifeless and testicles are always tight and feel soft. during the time i took adex my penis and testicles started to hang as they used to again, but i still couldn’t get a full erection, maybe 60% max. This has caused me many problems and i’ve had enough of it - im 20 years old and can’t remember what it’s like to have the urge to be with a girl, and its horrible.
i got more blood test results done a week ago and here are the results:
Serum testosterone level - 20.6 nmol/L, REF RANGE 8.00-27.00 nmol/L
Serum prolactin level - 593 mU/L, REF RANGE 45-375 mU/L
LH - 7.2 u/L, REF RANGE 1.5-18.1
FSH - 5.8 u/L, REF RANGE 1.4 - 18.1
Plasma glucose level - 4.4 nmol/L - REF RANGE 3.00-7.80nmol
TSH level - 0.79 mu/L - REF RANGE 0.30 - 5.50 mu/L
Serum Oestradiol level - 172 pmol/L - REF RANGE up to 191 pmol/L
ALL REFERENCE RANGES ARE THE ONES PROVIDED ON MY RESULTS
The doctors say everything is fine and theres nothing to worry about - so not great help considering my man parts still don’t work so thanks to them once again for doing nothing.
I’d appreciate if anyone could give me their two cents on my problems - my e2 and prolactin look like they’re out of whack, so anyone with any ideas about what i can take to sort myself out it would be much appreciated as it feels as if i’ve lost almost a year of my life to this problem already. thanks again.
