I would like to start by thanking the forum members for their contributions in this forum. Finding somewhat credible information or guidelines on this topic is difficult but this place is very helpful.
Status: 33 years old, secondary hypogonadism, Test-levels pre-treatment just under acceptable blood test standards for Test, since then 6 months Testogel 50mg (1 satchet) taken once a day. Recent spermcount reveals 1 million per ml count which is very low. Testicles are smaller than before but still of ok size. Me and my wife are trying to conceive. That factor along with the horror stories of prolonged TRT-use have me wanting to quit the TRT since I was borderline to begin with.
- I am hoping to get comments and recommendations on my pct-plan:
Continue Testogel 1 50mg satchet every day.
HCG 250iu EOD
Half-satchet of Testogel every day (4 weeks taper down on the test)
HCG 250iu EOD
Nolvadex 20 mg ED
Nolvadex 20 mg EOD
Nolvadex 10 mg EOD
This will be my first time taking HCG. Is 8 weeks typically enough to get the testicles and fertility back online?
Is the nolvadex plan too long?
Other plans online recommend continuing hcg after stoping Test (http://defymedical.com/blog/item/14-how-to-stop-testosterone-safely-and-possibly-reset-youir-hormone-axis)??
Other plans online recommend taking both clomid and nolva (http://defymedical.com/blog/item/14-how-to-stop-testosterone-safely-and-possibly-reset-youir-hormone-axis and https://www.evolutionary.org/the-perfect-post-cycle-therapy-pct/) but I have seen KSman on this forum explicitly state that serms should not be mixed on pct??
If anyone has the time to look over this and comment I would be thankful.
