I'm 39, and started to feel symptoms of andropause about 2 years ago. Consulted with multiple docs, and discovered my T was progressively dropping from a mid-range to below normal. Started HCG monotherapy 6 months ago cause my wife and I were trying to get pregnant. Now she's pregnant, and I'm ready to start a complete TRT protocal.
I'm currently on HCG 1,000u eod, Anastrozole 2mg eod, and Sermerolin 1000mcg pwo.
Labs as of about 2 weeks ago:
TT 1000 (350-1030 ng/dl)
%FT 1.7 (1.5-3.2)
Free T 170 (52-280 pg/ml)
SHBG 36 (20-60 nmol/L)
E2 male sensitive 4.4 (0.80-3.5)
Complete chem and cbc 1 month ago normal.
My T has increased overall, SHBG about the same, E2 been a problem due to HCG. I increased Anastrozole from 1mg eod to 2mg eod 2 weeks ago due to small amount of gyno setting in, and feel better.
This week my doc wants to start me on Test 200mg/wk, continue HCG at lower dose, and Anastrozole. My doc recommends Test im only. Any input on the subq route?
I would greatly appreciate input on starting a complete TRT protocal this week. I'll stick to a higher dose of Test since trying to build muscle/gain weight.
