Minimum T, Good E2

Hi guys,

been searching these threads long time now and finally did blood work. Blood work is below, but basically minimum T levels, but e2 is OK. FSH/LH are on lower end. What should be my next course of action?
I quit smoking last year and gained little pit of weight to 210lb with 6’ height. Can see some hair thinning a little at 29 years of age with patchy facial hairs, but strong leg hair growth.

About 9 years ago had a chance to test by sperm and results were not good, so propably had these results back then also, but …

TT 288 ng/dL 242-828
FSI Free Androgen Index 25.4% 15-95

FSH 2.3 IU/l 1.4-18.1
LH 2.59 IU/l 1.5-9.3

E2 18.6 pg/mL below 42.6
SHGB 40 nmol/l 17-66
Prolactin 170 mIU/l 53-360

TSH 1.4 mIU/l 0.40-4.00
fT4 16.5 pmol/l 11.5-22.7
fT3 5.51 pmol/l 3.5-6.5

Can you help me with interpreting the numbers and deciding next course of action.

Thyroid seems good. But do check oral body temperatures as per the thyroid basics sticky.

E2 is not causing this low LH/FSH, but need to check prolactin as a possible cause in these cases.
