496ng of Total T Too Low for 24yo?


I am 24 yo asian male who goes to the gym 3 times a week. 5'7 160lbs. I notice that my total testosterone is 496ng when I did some bloodwork. Is this way too low for my age?? I am worried. I get morning wood sometimes...and can keep an erection..however...when I ejaculate more than once or twice..it takes a lot of effort to get it back up..


496 is fine/normal.

having a refractory period is normal.... wait till your older, you'll be wishing for your current 'issues'.

unless you have some other symptoms or problems, I personally would not look to HRT.

now if you are concerned or have other symptoms, then get some more tests before doing anything. test Estradiol, TSH, 8am Cortisol, D25-OH, ferritin among others.
