Is TRT Safe With 1 Testicle

Been lurking and reading for awhile but no clear answer on affect of TRT on guys with 1 ball… I was born with one testicle I have never had issues with it… I have 3 kids my son has both nuts so he did’nt inheret my flaw… Never had issues with energy, stamina or anything untill 35…

I had my T tested at my last few Physicals over the last few years… Each time I was bellow 250 once as low as 170 but I had a cold that week.

I train hard & eat right but gaining muscle mass and shedding fat is at this point almost impossible. In good shape but guys that train and eat half what I do at my age seem to get better results… My mood is good but when training my sex drive dissapears… Maybe because I use up my already low T…

I tried the androgel before but I sweat allot and I thought it was nasty and did’nt do much for the price and hastel… I have never looked into injecting before but it seems more and more common, and Im willing to try it… However my concern with the protocal’s is they are geared for guys with 2 nuts… I would like to take care of my 1 nut as best as possible…

What is best for my sitauation?

injecting testosterone stops your natural production of the hormone so whether you have one nut or three nuts it doesn’t matter. Unless you want to supplement hcg. How do you think Testicular cancer patients have been using trt…

I am a uniballer thanks to testicular cancer and have been following the Protocol outlined on this forum. I have had issues with testicular atrophy and don’t know if it’s because I’m not responding to it as well as I’d like, or if my supply isn’t good (pharmacist is looking into it). I know a few guys with one testicle on TRT and most of them do fine with this protocol, and one guy doesn’t even need hCG to maintain testicular size.

I don’t know if you have already done labs, but it would be a good idea to get the full panel of labs outlined in the “Labs” Sticky. Just because you only have one testicle doesn’t necessarily mean you have primary hypogonadism, and getting on TRT based off of just having total testosterone tested is negligent.

Thanks fellow solo baller :wink: My concern was that these protocals are mostly outlined for the 2 nut male… That maybe for 1 smaller doses of T or HCG would be better as that may be too much work for 1 nut, or too much of a shock to the system…Also from what I read so far some Drs dont do HCG some dont do armidex ect… Im sure finding a Dr that will do the process as outlined here wont be easy…

My 1 nut has gotten me far in life so I would like to do my best not to kill it, but I would like to reap the benifits of TRT… I quess I want to have my cake and eat it too… Would it be possible to go on TRT for a few months then come off it if I dont like it or would I be stuck for life???

TRT will shutdown your teste. hCG will avoid that, but you source of T will be the injections. You worries are unfounded, you are no different from any other guys in terms of considerations for TRT.

Back to the advice for new guys sticky and provide data about you. BE OPEN to the other problems discussed there. Do not have a T tunnel vision because you may miss the cause of your problem and T is but a symptom.

Training does not use up T. It might stress your ability to make T.

TRT on and off? You will not want to do that. hCG is the way to go.
