Have you seen any successful restarts take place while you’ve been active on this forum? I’ve looked into it a bit but have never seen anything convincing that restarts are effective. Occasionally I’ll see a guy who claims his restart worked, but he’s basing that off a testosterone test only one month after he gets off the SERM or HCG.
It’s partially the lack of evidence I have seen of effective restarts that has led me to lean towards exogenous T + HCG for treatment instead.
Why isn’t a restart protocol the suggested treatment in any of the guidance from the andrology/urology/endocrinology professional organizations?[/quote]
Why do you think it is not? Both the urologist and endocrinologist I saw began a discussion about a restart immediately. Albeit, they noted that restarts are more commonly attempted with younger men as presumably their systems are more elastic and can respond to treatment like this. Nonetheless, my impression is that restarts rarely work, even in younger men. That might be the reason you have not often heard about them as an option.
