I could use some advice from you guys. I’m 33 and currently attempting a HPTA restart using tamoxifen after being on TRT for around 2.5 years - first 1.5 years I was doing test e injections and the last 12 months I’ve been using Testogel (4 pumps per day). I switched because I was just sick of the hassle of injecting twice a week and it made my girlfriend nervous.
My protocol for the tamoxifen is 40/40/20/20/20/20 and I’m just coming to the end of of the 2nd week at 40mg. So far so good; the first week I had a bit of anxiety but now I actually feel better in terms of energy and mood than when I was on TRT… even with T and E2 being in good ranges for the majority of the TRT. I started the protocol four days after the last administration of Testogel; that’s how long it stays in the system.
The issues I’m having are libido which is pretty low and I need cialis to perform. Is this a result of the 40mg of tamoxifen as I hear it can play havoc with sex drive? Will dropping down tomorrow to 20mg a day ease these side effects of low libido and ED or am I looking at these issues continuing until I come off? It’s just becoming a bit pain as she wants it most days…
Btw I’m stopping TRT as I just didn’t feel that good on it and we are planning on trying for a child next year.
In any case I will continue to update this post on my journey. I will get bloods done in four weeks.
Edit: I also have some cabergoline. Would this aid in raising libido?
