I just started TRT about a week ago. I’m a fairly young guy at 24 and unfortunately I’ve had low T since 2018. Not sure why but been on every single anti depressants on the book at this point. Low libido and energy. It took me a very long time to discover this alternative form of medicine and after a year of thinking about it. I’ve finally decided to pull the trigger. (Just as a reference labs consistently showed T in the 100sng/dL with the lowest at 6ng/dL) I’m not sure if all the anti depressants I used when I was in my early teens caused it. But none the less I’ve heard for a lot of guys this was the underlying cause. It took me a while to find a doctor who would give it to me. But because I came back so low they started me on 200mg Of testosterone cypionate a week with 2x a week injections, 1mg of anastrozole .5mg 2x a week, and HCG 600iu a week in 2x a week shots.
My first shot I just took the test. My second shot I decided to take the HCG and AI: needless to say I’m not sure if it was the AI or the HCG but I didn’t like how I felt the next day. (Lots of anxiety). I know it’s probably way too early for the test to do anything since I’m on week one lol. But my body didn’t seem to like to like the HCG.
I’ve decided since I don’t really care about nut size and don’t want to over complicate things. I’m just gonna drop the HCG and AI and see how it goes from there. Also, seems like for the most part I can add these meds down the line if I want to have kids and for the most part no one had issues conceiving on trt anyways. My question is how many of you all are on 200mg a week with no AI? I would rather take as least stuff as possible to see what is causing issues and not play a guessing game. Thanks!!
