-testes ache, ever, with a fever? No.
-how have morning wood and nocturnal erections changed: BIG CHANGE1 I hardly ever get them whereas 10 years I use to get them like clockwork
So, I will be getting a prescription for 1/2c test cyp weekly, 25iu HCG weekly, 1 cap of ANASTROZOLE wekly. The question is do I want to go down this road?
It started with sexual dysfunction. It's been getting better which makes me think it's due to stage fright or something but I still don't get morning wood hardly ever. I also have been more tired and depressed in the past few years. That may be due to a hard professional life which has certainly taken its toll (out of work, hard job search, etc). A year ago my total test was measured at 421 ng/dl. No idea how it shot up so much. I think it's because I uped the fats and lowered the carbs in my diet.
Basically I just want to feel better! More energy, better erections, better frame of mind, etc. But I want to be safe and I'm afraid HRT won't necessarily help with that or give me what I need and might might cause irreversible damage. This is a big deal to me.
I think I might also have a thyroid problem:
RT3 441 pg/ml 90-350 (again wtf?)
TSH 2.620 uIU/ml 0.45-4.5
That was taken from the same blood draw as the test stuff above.
Any insight here? I'd really appreciate it.
