Levels Plummeted After Starting HCG?

Hey guys, not sure what the hell is going on here. I take 30mg of test E EOD and recently introduced some HCG EOD as well at around 200ui per injection. My levels have absolutely plummeted, and LH/FSH has come online. Is this normal?

No. Also, at those levels, I would not say FSH and LH are online.

My first thought is what is the source of your testosterone and hCG?

Your test is most likely bad.

Like the others suggested, your test & HCG may be bad. From those labs I’d guess your e2 being low is telling your pituitary to create some LH & FSH to get the system going again, with poor results. Being on TRT should circumvent all that, so not sure why you’d be having issues otherwise

Did you lower your T dose to compensate for the HCG use?

This makes sense. Unless you switched something re your T protocol, adding the HCG should increase, not decrease, your T leveld.
