I’m 31yo, 6’2 240lbs (c30% bodyfat) and have just had a LabCorp test after experiencing some low test symptoms. Here they are:
Free T: 8.8
I have a consultation with an informed physician on Monday and fully expect to be prescribed T + anastrazole + HCG (standard protocol).
My only real question / concern: my wife and I have a 1yo child and hope to conceive again very shortly. I know, even with HCG, that this will reduce my fertility (right?). But, if we manage to get pregnant, are there any risks to the baby? Is there a higher incidence of miscarriage with TRT? Plenty of new epigenetic research is coming out and changes to genes have been shown to be passed down to offspring. I imagine TRT would certainly affect gene expression…it just seems like a bad idea. I doubt any of it has actually been studied so I am more worried about the unknown unknowns in the light of above mentioned epigenetic studies. Does anyone have any thoughts / experience with this?
