So my backstory - I’ve taken 3-4 steroid cycles all over 2 years ago. I’ve felt fine over the past 2 years (good sex drive, energy, generally happy etc) up until I recently took finasteride. It made me depressed and my sex drive just died. I quit it immediately (1 month ago) and went to the doctors to get my test levels checked. They came out very low (wasen’t told exact figures yet) and I was sent for a more complete check (T, LH, FSH, SHGB etc).
Now I don’t know if it’s down to the finasteride but I definitely felt good prior to it and crap afterwards. My depression has gone still stopping but my sex drive has not returned properly … I’m a functioning person but have little to no libido.
TRT isn’t really an option yet as it’s so early days with the doc and I’d be very hesitant even if offered as I want children.
My question is are there any ways to get my levels back for the long-term without TRT. I know if I took clomid/nolva my levels would shoot up but i’m unsure if they’d stay there.
