43, 5’11, 177, waist 29.
Fit body, 12-15% body fat(visual estimate and calipers), body hairy pretty much all over rather dense, solid facial hair.
Erections are very soft most of the time, Viagra (low doze - around 15mg my estimate) helps but not always. No morning wood in ages (may be once every few months and soft when it happens). Feeling low energy quite often. Hard to concentrate. Very strong DOMS after workouts - takes quite a while to subside. Decent diet (variant of paleo), working out 3-4 times a week(lifting for about 45 mins) for the last year at least. Very low libido - most of the time don’t pay attention to hot girls. Sex once a week on average.
Did a few months of anabolics in my late teens/early 20’s. Since didn’t know anything about them didn’t do any pct or test, just did some steroids for a few months (don’t remember what).
Requested a T test 2 years ago from my general idiot, 365 range 348-1197, was assured it’s normal.
Found a low-t clinic last week, labs as following (not all, relevant):
hematocrit 48.5 41-55
total cholesterol 239 0-199
He didn’t do the rest of lipids, so below is from the test by my gp from 4 months ago:
total cholesterol 207 100-199
triglicerydes 130 0-149
hdl 62 >39
ldl calc 119 0-99
current test continues
anion gap 22 8-20(probably ketogenic due to paleo diet)
psa .429 0-3.9
LH 7 1.2-8.6
estradiol (regular test) 13.8 23.8-52.2
TSH 3.88 .3-5.0
Total test 374.5 193-950
Free test (direct) 6.4 6.8-21.5
Was prescribed 100mg test cyp per week IM, 500 HCG twice weekly, .5mg anastrozole once weekly.
After reading some stuff here, I changed it to twice per week 50mg test with HCG same day, and split .5mg into 2 dozes twice a week (day after test injection). He didn’t care (in general I get the vibe that he’ll agree to whatever I tell him to as long as I’m paying him).
Did 100mg initial injection as a “preload”, then followed by slightly reduced (around 40mg) doze 2.5 days after, and then continued normally as described above. Morning (and night) wood showed up on day 3-4 and is there every day. Libido noticeably higher. Energy levels much better. After workout recovery is noticeably improved (after a week).
He wanted to do next blood work in 3 months, and then every 6, I said I want a retest in one month, he agreed.
So with all that - comments?
