UPDATE Starting HCG Monotherapy
The day after the original post, I went in for a diagnostic and had another blood test (not as in depth).
Total Test: 427 (NG/DL)
Free Test: 8.7
SHBG: 30.4 (NMOL/L)
Prolactin: 15.4 (NG/ML)
FSH: 2.4 (IU/L)

Total test was higher, but my free test was lower. This blood test was taken fasted approximately 45 minutes after waking up.
Provider decided on HCG Monotherapy with my first dose this morning (1,000 IUs?, 3x a week)
