It’s been quite a journey. 50 years old now. I tried to reverse my vasectomy starting back in 2015 due to a new marriage. My urologist at the time determined I had low T at 331 ng/dL and put me on Clomid to increase my T and to maintain my fertility (and hopefully increase my sperm count if the reversal worked). My T level went up, but within the normal range. Gained some muscle, but couldn’t lose belly fat no matter how much I worked out it seemed. However, when you live with it, you don’t notice as much, but my fatigue levels went way down. Felt a lot better quality-of-life-wise on the Clomid.
2 failed reversal attempts later, we went to IVF (have a 6-month old baby daughter now). My new urologist for the IVF manually collected and froze sperm, so I didn’t need to maintain my fertility any more. But he kept me on Clomid since I felt a lot better on it and I was used to it. However, I noticed a drop in libido which is odd for me since I’ve been like a horny teenager all of my life. He said a lot of his patients felt better on actual testosterone replacement as compared to the Clomid. Plus, he believes the Clomid has caused the libido issue.
So here we are now, stopped the Clomid about 2 weeks ago. He has me on testosterone cypionate. I inject 200 mg every 14 days. Reading on here a bit, seems 2 weeks between injections can be a problem.
So, what can I expect coming off the Clomid and transiting to the injections? I go back in 3 months to see how things are going. Should I ask about smaller, more frequent injections? Any idea if it’s easier to lose fat with the injections versus Clomid (still running, cycling, and lifting)?
