Iâ??ve been on TRT for a few years now. I started with TRT and HCG but quit the HCG after 6 or 8 months due to the cost (and insurance didnâ??t cover any of it). I also didnâ??t really think I was getting much out of it. I have 4 kids and a vasectomy. So with no future children planned I didnâ??t think I needed my nuts to be working. Well, Iâ??ve had some testicular pain and shrinkage and read info on this forum about the benefits and asked my doc to go back on the HCG. My doctors recommendation is to quit taking the Test for 30 to 60 days, then do blood work and based on results go back on TRT with HCG.
That is the background, here is my question: How long do I need to be off Test for it to be completely out of my system? I would hate to quit for 30 days, do blood work, and my test levels to be still artificially high. Then my doc may reconsider putting me back on Testâ?¦although with that being said, I donâ??t want to quit taking Test for longer than I need too. I have really enjoyed the mental and physical benefits from TRT.
I currently take 50mg Test Cyp twice per week and have consistently for about 2 yearsâ?¦also my doc is actually pretty coolâ?¦she is a hormone specialist and seems to be hip to the benefits of TRT and has always been in favor of me being on TRT. In my original blood work, before TRT, my test levels were 192 total and 6 free. Since then, annual subsequent tests put my test in the 800s and free in the low 20's.
