Scenario: I am 21 and recently had bloodwork done. After the results were returned my doctor prescribed me .2 iu hcg twice daily. 200 mgs of testosterone cypionate weekly (watson) to be injected once weekly (on monday mornings).
.25 mgs of progesterone (to be taken once every evening at bedtime). .9 mgs of Anastrozole (to be taken twice weekly). My doctor is an awesome anti-aging doctor and is extremely knowledgeable about androgens.
Personal History: I have been lifting and eating correctly for 2 years. When I was 19 I lost 30 pounds through correctly dieting and training. I went through puberty relatively earlier than most of my friends (I began to undergone the expected changes around the age of 11). Before I lost weight I was 5 '10 200 pounds.
I am now 5'11 170 pounds and had my bf percentage measured by skinfolds at 9%. I have never had any noticeable emotional problems. Throughout my life I have had what I consider to be normal levels of vitality, emotion and sex drive. Although recently (within the past 6 months) I have felt these fluctuate more than I remember them fluctuating in the past. (By this I mean I have felt more peaks and lows in my mood and sex drive).
My libido has decreased greatly since I was 16 or so. I also do not get erections very frequently and when I do I do not maintain them for very long. I also have a very hard time losing bodyfat. (I know that once you break into single digit bodyfat it becomes increasingly difficult to get leaner but I assure you my diet and training schedule are in check). I also have noticed that I wake up in the middle of the night to urinate every night.

*Note: I know some of these test results are extraneous, but I was unsure as to exactly which ones to post on here, for this I apologize.
*Should I take the compounds my doctor has prescribed? (I have read everything I can on this website for nearly two years and am greatly aware of the vast risks that someone of my age and health profile would undertake if deciding to undergo a TRT protocol such as the one my doctor prescribed)
*If not, what steps can I go through to increase my bodies free test?
*how can I increase my mood and sex drive naturally?
*are their any glaring problems with my labwork?
*If I do decide to undergo the aforementioned protocol should I make any changes to it? (ex: injecting 100mgs of test cyp E3D instead of 200 mgs once weekly)
*Do I risk completely shutting down my bodies natrual production of testosterone even with the use of hCg?
*What risks overall do I incur if I decide to undergo the aforementioned TRT protocol?
Thanks in Advance
