After the doctor saw these tests, he referred me to a urologist. The urologist then put me on clomid 50mg EOD for 30 days and then we would retest. After two weeks on clomid i felt superhuman. Everything felt great! so the 30 days came and i still felt great.
Labs after 30 days on clomid:
TT-703 (260-1070 ng/dl)
The doc told me to continue with taking this dose. As the months went on, the effects started to diminish rapidly (energy,sexdrive and since of wellbeing).
TT-600 (260-1070 ng/dl)
FSH-2.7 ( N/A)
Estradiol-26 Pg/ml ( N/A)
The doc said everything looked great and he didnt understand why i was having these symptoms. he did offer viagra and said see you next visit.
Again he said looked Great! But still having awful symptoms. So i thought this was how it was going to be, until i started to do some digging. i thought i should be going to an Endo for other hormone testing, so i thought. This guy thought adrenal fatigue was something the internet made up. Also when these were drawn i was still on clomid 50mg EOD and i was taking DHEA 50mg ED.
TT-936 (250-1100 ng/dl)
FT-138.0 (35.0-155.0 pg/ml)
FSH-1.6 (1-10 miu/ml)
LH-5.0 (1-10 miu/ml)
TSH-1.769 (0.350-4.940 uiu/ml)
Free Thyroxine-1.2 (0.7-1.5 ng/dl)
There are more labs that he drew CMP and CBC. Let me know if i should post them. So, The Endo called me and said everything looked great and stay with waht i am doing. I still felt like shit!
Next Checkup with Uro and he drew more labs:
07/08/2014 Again they dont have ranges.
I told him after this i wanted to do something different. Then he prescribed androgel 1.62 two pumps every morning. so i did this for a few months and there was a slight increase in energy, mood and my sex drive was kinda getting better, maybe 15% better. i was also growing a lot of facial hair ( I grew a Full Beard in 2 weeks). Needless to say i Thought i was getting a little better, Kinda.
Labs To see how the androgel was working
I did not expect that it was going to be that low. The Doctor did not like this and said i wasnt absorbing it well. so he said i could go to four pumps in the morning or go back on clomid. Well, He talked me into going back on clomid. I was Not very happy about this. Thinking im screwed, i came across T-Nation and holy carp. I read an extreme amount of info (BTW sorry KSman if i forgot something). After two weeks of reading i called my doctor and talked him into injections (test cyp). He said 1ML 200mg cyp E2W. after reading this i could not believe this. F-that, i am now doing .25ml's twice a week. Also, He did not prescribe me an AI or HCG. My issue is that since i have been injecting this past week, I am feeling exteremly fatigued. I am wondering if it is because I was taking clomid two weeks prior and suddenly stoping and going straight to Injection.
Any help, Please!
