Hi Guys, I hope you can give me some advice;
My name is Dan, I am 24 y/o and live in the UK. When I was 23 i was diagnosed with secondary hypogonadism which is was caused by anorexia during my pubescent years due to the lack of fats in my diet and my constant extremely low weight. I fully recovered from the anorexia 2 years ago but it was after this i found out the issues it had left me with.
I started TRT this time last year in the form of Tostran Gel but this did jack all for me and in May of this year on started on Nebido, this has helped but its very up and down and I am running out at the halfway point between my 10 weekly injections.
I have been doing lots of reading up on the idea of a Clomid restart and given that I am only 24 and only been on proper TRT for 6 months or so, I think I have a good chance of kick starting my natural production again especially now I am heavily in to the bodybuilding lifestyle and diet etc.
Now I hope that the UK health service will allow me to try this and prescribe me the script but UK TRT is very different to US TRT because our "experts" know nothing about it and its very hard for us to ask to try things because of the cost to the NHS etc.
If the worst comes to worst and she says no then I will try it on my own and get my own Clomid from my own sources, not what I want but they will leave me no choice. As for the protocol this is what I had in mind;
12 weeks @ 25mg ED
12 weeks @ 25mg EOD
12 weeks @ 25mg 3 x week
Then stop completely, I will also try and get tests after each phase.
I have read that its best to try at 25mg first to see if I get a response and if not then up it to 50mg.
What are peoples thoughts on this, is this ok to run or should I change the time scales. I dont want to try HCG with it, I want to try and restart with as little medical intervention as possible. The only thing I may run is an AI if estrogen increases as well.
Thanks in advance,
