I am quitting TRT after 1.5 years - It never lifted my depression as my Dr claimed it would, the only benefit I will miss is the extra muscle mass.
My Dr has stated all I need to restart is one month of HCG at 250iu daily. I asked about nova or clomid, and he said its not needed.
My concern is that with normal - high testosterone from the HCG my hypothalamus and pituitary will still be suppressed. How long will they take to come online once I quit HCG and my T (and E2) start crashing?
Most stuff online suggest using clomid or nova after the HCG. However I have found a couple references that they only temporarily boost Testosterone levels and they aren’t needed.
I am wondering if after a month of HCG to get the testes up and running, if tapering off the HCG would allow my T levels to normalize and then the hypothalamus and pituitary to slowly start working.
