I’ve been on HCG restart for 2 about two months. I started it on July 15th.
My doctor prescribed 5000iu 2xweek at first, which I divided to 2500iu EOD after few weeks.
I know the dosing is huge, but apparently it’s needed when coming off after years of testosterone use without hcg.
Anyways, I just got bloods and they are disappointing.
E2: 0.17nmol /l (<0.15)
Total testosterone: 16.5nmol /l (8-29).
SHBG: 28nmol /l (15-95)
Free testosterone: 274pmol /l (155-800)
Hgb: 155g/l (134-167)
HKR: 44.6% (39-50)
My free testosterone is pretty crap imo. What do you guys think? Should I just wait for longer, if the hcg just needs more time? Or maybe my balls just are whack and there is no other choice than to just hop back on testosterone…
Feels this far:
-Anxiety and panic attacks from time to time
-Pretty bad brain fog occasionally, it sucks
-Weird tingling in my toes
Yesterday I decreased my dose to 1250iu EOD and today I got pretty bad brainfog and anxiety.
Like I made a lot of typos writing this message because of the brainfog I’m currently having. Sucks balls.
Is my HCG restart doomed?
I would ask my doc but there is no getting hold of him. He doesn’t take calls or emails, only appointments and he has a 5 month waiting line. Before someone tells me to switch doctors, he is pretty much the only doctor around where I live who doesn’t think trt is the devil.
