Your LH and FSH are 0 because your system is completely shut down, which is expected using exogenous T. Being 20 your Dr. is most likely looking out for you as your fertility, and probably many other areas for young guys, may be at risk. If this is a new Dr. his requests sounds reasonable to me. Plus you’d get the benefit of some very useful info. If your new labs confirm you are shut down/primary, then you’d just continue injecting as usual. If your system bounces back then other treatment options like Clomid come into play which may benefit you long term. Read the HPTA restart sticky for more info. Another way to look at this is 1 month is nothing. Now that you’ve entered the TRT world you are playing the long game…you’re 20 now but you need someone with insight to help frame your next 60 years.
If you decide to stop, prepare yourself. My Dr. and I agreed to stop TRT to run baseline tests after a miserable and misguided first attempt at treatment. We stopped for ~6 weeks, and I’m not going to lie, it was a terrible terrible experience. The first few weeks were ok, but once week 3-4 hit I became desperate to the point I had to take time off work cause I was a wreck.
However, I made it. Was it the right decision to stop cold turkey…probably not. But I’m grateful I gave it a shot and saw it all the way. What made it great for me is that I work with a great Dr. He was upfront with me and told me what to expect, and didn’t pull any punches. Once we got baseline labs we were able to more clearly identify my issues and develop a treatment plan that we both agreed to. The elimination of variables also made me more confident and brought a lot of clarity in understanding my own body.
