Im a bit confused because a private dr said I have low t and my gp and other people are saying im fine, while again others are saying alot of my hormones need some work.
Height: 173cm, 5’8
waist: 32 last time i checked
Have hair all over my legs, some on lower back and butt. gap between stomach and chest has no hair or sides of stomach. can grow a beard. even have some hairs on my penis.
I carry body fat on love handles, pubic area (have a fat pad), chest (nipple area, rest is ok) on lower stomach. Even when lost weight as a teen, i could never get rid of the fat pad and lower stomach fat, even when people thought i was in decent shape.
Ive lost a lot of weight, find it hard to put on muscle, mood swings, feel kinda lifeless. Lose my temper quick, erection strength not good, dissapears after a couple minutes sometimes. none existant after sex but have morning wood some mornings. libido not good. foggy mind and hard to concentrate. Hard to fall asleep. Low energy.
When I was 12 I had a right testicular torsion and again at 13 the other side. I use to be a slim child but grew into a fatty from 6-15. But I never lost the excess fat near my nipples and fat pad in pubic region.
I didnt really think about low testosterone till 2 years after my sports and inguinal hernia operation which was done at 24. After a year of not recovering, my dr said maybe your low test isnt helping your recovery…
I was complaining about all the symptons for about 2 years.
The foggy mind, lake of concentration iv felt like ive had forever.
I was wondering what you guys thought before i pay for anymore dr consultations with different opinions.

i dont know anything about ranges. They are given by the gp which dont know anythign about testosterone.
Ive been advised to take an anti estrogran and take a small dose. so it wont effect my own testosterone production. I would like to have babies lol.
Thanks and hope thats more clear.
