I am 24 years old and a year ago I went on Propecia to combat male pattern baldness , within 5 days I noticed symptoms of low ejaculate and numb penis so I quit , all went to normal for a week then I crashed hard ( Insomnia , muscle loss , mood swings , very low cognitive function , extremely ice cold feet , dry skin ) Testosterone levels crashed to 284 and normalized to 420 in the coming months (prior to finasteride was 713) , however most of my symptoms remained and life sucked , I tried clomid restart While it brought it to 1100 E2 58 , it went back to 400s 4 weeks after the restart and symptoms came back with a vengeance .
In June based on the advice of my endo I went on TRT and after some trial and error this protocol works best for me: 120 MG in two injections per week arimidex 0.5 at the time of injections (cant on no circumstances go on HCG because of E2 issue) . All my symptoms went away and I am my old self (if not better) . Having said that I feel like a disabled person being on T at such a young age , Can’t seem to forgive myself for such a dumb mistake . I was operating at %110 prior to finasteride damage and I keep thinking about those days and feel like I lost something big in my life . I am asking from pros here who have been on T long term , Is there any risk of being on T long term ?
