I am in an odd situation because my old insurance was cancelled by Obamacare and I now have to be seen by the VA. The old doctor had me on 100m weekly of cyp and my levels were around 400ish…he has never had me on any type of hcg and my boys are half the size they were before I started.
Quick back story…I was put on TRT for low test at the age of 31. In the 11 years ive tried the gels, creams and shots. Nothing has really changed my well being, my libido or my energy. Since I now have to go to the VA the VA doctor suggested I stop TRT COLD TURKEY. No PCT of any kind…I asked, “should I not use HCG or Clomid to kick start my natural production”.
I was in shock that this DR did not care or know about the consequences. So I immediately left and went to my old DR on a cash visit. He agreed to try and come off the TRT if it wasnt helping the symptoms but he put me on HCG for a month and Clomid e/d for 2 months. Then see where I am with my blood levels at that point. I am 4 weeks in and HCG is almost gone. I FEEL LIKE SHI#######.
No energy, absolutely zero libido and I am now regretting coming off. Any suggestions from anyone who was on it long term and stopped? The only benefit I see from the hcg/clomid is my boys are a bit bigger now so that part is working. I am just so frustrated with all of this.
Had blood draw 3 days ago and it came back at 252. I was up around 400-500 while on cyp, depending on the day of the week I had my blood drawn. Is this 252 a sign of it only getting worse or is that to be expected when coming off TRT and doing HCG/Clomid?
