Thank you for taking the time to read this, I am new to the forums and new to TRT. 24 years old and I am a firefighter who is very active and consistently trains in the 4x per week. Despite this for the past 8 months I have suffered from severe day time fatigue, mood swings, foggy brain, and lowered libido, anxiety/depression. Went to the doctor to talk about all of this and look into a prescription for an anti-depressant and to my surprise my doctor wanted to test my testosterone levels and the results were as follows
Total T 380 ng/dL Range (250-827ng/dL)
Free T 54 Pg/ml Range 18-69 Years old (46-224)
E2 Not tested?? Not sure why but I was not educated enough at the time
Protocol 100mg Test C weekly:
I after reading decided to take 100mg up front followed by 50mg 3.5 days later (to reach stable levels more quickly) continuing with 50mg twice weekly every 3.5 days (100mg total)
2.5 weeks in and so far not much improvement. Silght energy increases but libido seems to be the same or not steady all the time. No spontaneous erections through out the day either. Sex right now is not an issue though as I can still achieve a 10/10 erection when getting busy with the Mrs.
My main concerns are the underlying brain fog and mental clarity as well daytime fatigue.
One last note I have noticed from time to time my nipple (right side) is sometimes itchy… not having a baseline E2 is worrisome.
Should I stick with my current protocol of 50mg / 3.5 days or adjust from here?
Thanks to all
