Deca Only Cycle 12 Yrs Ago, Low T Now


#1

What's up guys... I'm 34 years old and I did a deca only cycle with some winny over 12 years ago when I was about 20... I wish this thread existed then.

Since then I have been pretty much going done hill., all low T symptoms can't lose fat, etc

Got some labs done last week:
Total t 288
-height---6'
-waist--- 36"
-weight----230
-- hair on chest/stomach/ back and limbs--spotty/patchy/thin slow growing beard
-- noticeably thinning hair on crown of head and receding front
-carry fat on love handles/ around waist and upper thighs
-all symptoms of low-t
-no prescriptions currently-- tried deca for a cycle over 12 years ago
-Total Test: 288 Lab 1 (2pm) {28-800 range}
356 Lab 2 (9am) {348-1197 range}
-LH- 4.9 (1.7-8.6)
-FSH- 2.8 (1.5-12.4)
-prolactin- 13.0 (4.0-15.2)
-Estradiol (E2)- 17.5 (7.6-42.6)
-progesterone- 0.25 (.1 - .84)
vit d 48.6 (30-100)
Testosterone free direct- 9.9 (8.7-25.1)
SHBG- 23.2 (16.5 - 55.9)
Cortisol- 12.0 (6.2- 19.4)
-pregnenolone= 82 (7-188)

I most concerned about the very low t for my age as well as the low free t and very low FSH and high prolactin

went to an endorsement that wants to put me on TRT gel, don't know if that's the best thing to get the boys back in action

Need some advice if that's the way to go or maybe HCG with a SERM orAI

I think the problems could be somewhat genetic and the deca only cycle really screwed me

Just wanted to see if there's any hope for me for a poor choice made over a decade ago

Thanks Men
