Here is my bloodwork from a month ago on 20mg Test E EOD and 100iu HCG ED:
PROGESTERONE *0.59 nmol/L 0.70 - 4.30
D.H.E.A. SULPHATE 9.750 umol/L 5.73 - 13.40
TESTOSTERONE *49 nmol/L 8.64 - 29.00
FREE-TESTOSTERONE(CALCULATED) *1.08 nmol/L 0.20 - 0.62
SEX HORMONE BINDING GLOB 42.2 nmol/L 18.30 - 54.10

I’m 21 y/o, and I’ve been on TRT for two years now because of three testicular torsion surgeries. I’m still not dialled in, and I still feel awful.
I spent 18 months essentially self medicating under a doctor who wrote me a script for Sustanon and offered no advice or support. I then moved to my current doctor who I am very happy with, but unfortunately it is still taking a long time to get dialled in.
After the above bloods which were taken just over a month ago, we changed my protocol to 12.5mg Test E EOD and kept HCG at 100iu EOD. I’m not due bloods until early Jan because of the christmas break.
Despite the levels being ridiculously high across the board, I actually felt relatively good with the above bloods. However, since dropping down to 12.5mg EOD I’ve felt awful. No libido, difficulty maintaining an erection with my girlfriend, and worst of all extreme fatigue, brain fog and severely impaired cognitive function.
Does anyone have any advice for my current situation? I understand this is a topic I should be discussing with my doctor, and I am, but I also value second options from forums like this too.
My main concerns are E2 and low progesterone. I’ve tried supplementing pregnenolone in the past but it has always left me with a racing heart beat. I’m not even sure if the progesterone reference range on the test is for men. Thanks in advance.
