My very first post here.
48yr old, put on TRT this past April (so on for ~6 months now). Was having some symptoms of low T, so got tested, doc put me on TRT (~100mg/week test cyp).
The fact is, and in hindsight, I don’t think i should have ever gone on TRT, but I knew little about any of this and trusted my doc. Long story short as possible, my total T came out to 700(!), but my free T was in the toilet (below lowest number in ref range). So my doc’s thinking was that if we increase my total T (I can’t believe he thought it was good to go over 700!), my free T would also increase.
Needless to say, here I am 6 months later, my total T is 350(!), and my free T is still in the toilet. So things are worse!
What I should have done is just tried to find a way to raise my free T, not go on TRT. Hindsight 20/20
So, enough of this, I want to try and get off TRT. Not sure if it will be possible at my age to restart HPTA, but I would like to try. Might be on TRT for life now, but I hope not.
So I need help from those that have successfully come off TRT, especially those that are in your 40s and older. How did you do it?
Thanks much everyone, really appreciate your help. This has really been a nightmare for me.
