I visited a testosterone clinic without seeing an endocrinologist about 2 years ago because of some lingering anxiety, depression, and general low energy I had. I had ran two very short cycles about 5 years before that, and my symptoms and naivety made me convinced that I might have had low T. I visited the clinic, got tested, and was told I had secondary hypogonadism and I was placed on injections of 200mg test cypionate literally a day later. Since then I have been on the same dose with 1000 iu HCG per week and 0.5 mg anastrozole per week. Unfortunately I did not find this forum until recently, and after all of my research I’m beginning to think that I may have been placed on TRT too soon before resolving any issues which could naturally increase my T. If this is the case, I would like to restart my HPTA.
Weight: 178 lbs
Body/Facial Hair: Minimal body hair on back/ medium hair growth on chest/ full facial hair/ no thinning hair on head
Fat: Carried a little bit around midsection but my bodyfat percentage was very low starting trt (below 10%)
Health conditions: No physical health conditions
Rx and OTC drugs: Before TRT – 70mg vyvanse, 1mg klonopin, 10mg lexapro. On TRT – 20mg vyvanse, no klonopin, no lexapro, 50mg trazodone at night.
-TT 450 ng/dL (350-1000)
-CFT: 5.67 (10-30)
-LH: 4.6 (1.7-8.6)
-FSH: 4.9 (1.5-12.4)
-TSH: 1.420 (0.450-4.500)
-Prolactin: 13.0 (4.0-15.2)
-SHBG: 63.4 (16.5-55.9)
-Estradiol: 10.0 (7.6-42.6)
Diet: This could’ve been better. I was eating 2-3 meals a day, not eating much in the morning at all, and the vyvanse dose decreased my appetite much of the time. I wouldn’t call it a starvation diet but there was unintentional morning fasting. I was also consuming alcohol every weekend and once or twice during week days in large quantities.
Training: I was training 5-6 days a week, sometimes 7 days. Overtraining could’ve affected me. Workouts were great but I was not putting on any muscle mass (possibly due to the Rx drugs and diet).
Testes: Never ached, no fever.
Morning wood/nocturnal erections: I would have those every other day. It turned into an every day thing on TRT.
Recent lab results after 2 years of TRT:
TT: 775 (350-1000)
CFT: 16.6 (10-30)
E2: 27.70 (15.00-55.00)
I appreciate any feedback.
