Been following the site for 10yrs but this is the first time I’ve felt the need to comment.
I’ll jump straight into it, I have ridiculously tiny testicles, always have - grape size at best.
I’ve been more and more depressed lately with zero sex drive. I’ve always had highs and lows, motivational periods and periods where I’ve wanted to stay in bed - I’ve never been consistent.
Had my bloods back today although the doctor refused to give me a copy (I’m working on getting them now).
Everything, glucose, thyroid, estrogen, estradiol, bone density,were normal.
LH 3.3 and FSH 10.7 were normal (according to him).
My testosterone was 4.2 where normal was 7 and above (I could not read the screen clearly from that distance).
Those values were all he’d give me in writing.
Whilst with me he ran the symptoms passed an endocrinologist on the phone who ordered more bloods and a follow up. I have no children, this prompted the endo to mention Klinefelter’s syndrome, XXY chromosone.
Now this almost certainly means no kids, but we’ll determine whether the diagnosis is correct through a genetic test.
So I’m pretty upset, my girlfriend is inconsolable.
The problem I have is that a lot of the primary characteristics of Klinefelder’s (those which aren’t symptoms of low T) just don’t seem to apply to me - learning difficulties, especially language (I was fluent bilingual at 3!), gyno (I couldn’t get it if I tried, and I took lots of AAS!) lack of facial or body hair, lack of bone density, muscle and co-ordination (I was an international athlete in my teens, although I was a late developer).
I am 6’5" and have always been relatively more muscular/stronger than my peers and although difficult to gain weight I’ve managed and maxed out at over 300lbs - currently 240.
The only corresponding symptoms are the depression, and lack of libido which are symptomatic of low T. And of course ny grape size balls.
At age 24 I took my first AAS and cycled on and off up til a couple years ago. My small balls and general malaise were prevalent before the AAS.
Has anyone got any experience of this sort of scenario? Nothing will be determined until I see the endo and get the genetic tests done of course, but any help would be appreciated; reading up on Kleinfelter’s is depressing stuff!
