I’m 30 yrs old, have always been active in sports, lifted weights etc…I’ve never used anabolic steroids. I’ve been suffering from fatigue, general low drive, and depression for about 8 yrs now. (judging by the timing, I think this may have come from taking Accutane in college) I’ve seen a bunch of doctors…finally they found I was slightly hypothyroid. (I guess you have to be an overweight, middle aged woman for doctors to even check this).
I also had low T levels (as low as 227 total). I took a bionutrients test which showed that my Vitamin E, Magnesium, Zinc and Selenium levels were all low about a year and a half ago…I got those back to normal and my thyroid tests improved…I felt better but still not great.
About a month and a half ago my libido just completely shut down for whatever reason…NO erections at all…I was able to find a TRT specialist who told me I had the T levels of an Old man. My total T level was 443 (surprisingly high for how I felt), free T was 59 pg/ml and Estradiol was 32. My doctor put me on a 5 day Clomid challenge test and my T level rose to 740 and my free T tripled to 185 pg/ml…since I had such a good response, he prescribed 50mg Clomid M-F (2 days off) and Arimidex 3x per week…
It’s been a full month since I started and I feel no better at all…This shouldn’t be happening…I’ve had to turn down dates (potentially one with an Eagles cheerleader) and haven’t been going out because my confidence has hit rock bottom. I’m trying everything…just started acupuncture…have been thinking about ordering a supplement called Passion RX which I heard good things about…
So my questions are…anyone have a similar experience that they recovered from? How long should it take and are there any supplements or anything that could help???
