I'm on HCG monotherapy 250IU EOD to increase my borderline abnormally low free test levels. I'm getting my bloodwork done every 2 weeks. I'm one month in now and my bloodwork is showing that my free test levels are going in the wrong direction - they are decreasing instead of increasing. All other hormones are within normal range - progesterone, estradiol, estrone, total test...
Here are some of the things that have crossed my mind:
Is it possible that it just takes time and there is an initial lull?
I've been getting my bloodwork done just before my EOD shot. Could I be at the low end of the cycle? Like it's peaking when I inject and then 2 days later it has dropped off?
Could I be somehow overstimulating the testes and having the opposite effect somehow?
I know that false results could always be a possibility but I don't like the trend. Any thoughts would be appreciated.
