I briefly started TRT without HCG, and noticed a tremendous increase in libido and confidence.
I added HCG, but as some of you know, stupidly decided to mess with my E2 at the same time. I feel like I was more cool and collected (and able to control my emotions/actions extremely well) before HCG, but more euphoric and ramped up (not more energy per say, but like you might feel from amphetamines) on it. Possibly more anxious too.
In fact, on T alone, I reached this mental state I had never felt before, where I was just naturally confident, in control of myself, not anxious, and feeling just “right.” My girlfriend absolutely loved me during that period. All the time I’d spent over the years in therapy and working on myself became irrelevant, as everything just seemed natural.
I’m just curious, do most guys like HCG? For those who don’t, what are the downsides, aside from an increased risk of elevated E2?
Fertility now is of no concern, but might be in 5-10 years. Maybe never even (I’m almost 35 already and have never really wanted kids).
