- protocol for injections
- finding a TRT doc
- HPTA restart
At your age, there should have been a discussion about fertility and you should have been injecting hCG to preserve your testes while on TRT, or hCG alone could have been your TRT.
Only 10% of transdermal T products is absorbed at best and that makes it expensive. Self injected T is least cost and 100% delivery.
Get and retain your labs.
Post lab work here with ranges. Everything, not just T.
You also could have been on caber only from the beginning.
Your doctor(s) are incompetent, this is malpractice.
Get this done:
Post labs and ranges
Use anastrozole to get near E2=22pgml, try 1/2mg twice a week
Start self-injecting 250iu hCG SC/SQ EOD - advice for new guys explains terminology
You still are on T, hCG is starting to recover your testes
Later you can deal with restart.
You need to understand that 4 years on TRT without hCG may have damaged things. So you can only try.
Endocrinologists do really dumb things all of the time.
More testogel will increase E2 and that may be your problem.
How are energy levels?
Hope that you are using iodized salt to get iodine needed to make thyroid hormones.
This time of year you could be Vit-D3 deficient.
You have a serious amount of reading to do because you cannot be passive and have a doc do this kind of shit again.
