Well went to see a urologist today to try to get hcg from him. We talked a bit and he said he doesn’t want to put me on t-injections and hcg due to scarring (I mentioned I might want another kid in the future).
Anyways he wanted to run some other tests that my other doc didn’t and wanted to take me off T-shots, I said no. I told him there is no way I’m going back to feeling like shit.
Then he talked about clomid, I was against this at first also but told him I’d try it but if I feel like crap he’s putting me back on T. So I get 2 more t shots while taking the clomid and then get tested for LH, FSH, TT and SHBG 4 weeks later.
He thought I was kinda young to be having these problems and wanted to see why, I’ve basically been symptomatic for about 10 years.[/quote]
Scaring can be reduced by using #29 .5" .5ml insulin syringes for T EOD or #25 1" in the quads. You do not need to use 1.5" needles.
hCG is injected SC EOD and the scaring issue is less than injecting insulin a few times per day.
Clomid has more and some risk of serious side effects than hCG for life long use.
One needs arimidex in any case. Clomid and all SERMs increase lead to increased E2 levels and the parts of the body that are not protected by the SERM a sujected to high E levels.
Clomiphene citrate is generally well tolerated. Adverse reactions usually have been mild and transient and most have disappeared promptly after treatment has been discontinued. Visual Symptoms - Blurred vision, lights, floaters, waves, unspecified visual complaints, photophobia, diplopia, scotomata, phosphenes and headaches are those most common I have encountered. Reducing the dosage or discontinuing the medication resolves these side effects.
