I wasn’t feeling good, and this lasted for a very long time actually, but I never thought that it could be something wrong with me, I just thought it was who I was. And then, I started researching, and found out this forum. I went to a doctor (endo) last week, and she asked me to do a few exames. I just got the result. I will go back to her this Monday.
I’ll post here a little bit about myself. I’m afraid that I might need TRT. I live in SA, and I think this treatment is really difficult and expensive here.
Age: 24 years old;
Weight: 77,5 Kg
Describe body and facial hair: I have little to no hair on my face and on my body.
Describe where you carry fat and how changed: I carry fat mostly on my belly;
Health conditions, symptoms [history]: I feel like crap most days, and for the most part of the day. I can’t think straight, feel confused, and can’t focus properly. I feel a lot of anxiety, I’m afraid of social interation, and feel really tired when going out of my comfort zone to try and talk to someone new. I already thought I could be depressed, before finding this forum. There are days I feel really sad, and no drive, no motivation to do anything. My libido is low, and even though I have an amazing girlfriend, I want to have sex with her no more than once per week. I feel really tired. My sleep isn’t the best. I feel irritaded easily, and I’m really nervous.
I also have constant bellyaches and diarrhea. I am lactose intolerant (found out earlier this year). I stopped eating anything with lactose, but I’m still getting bad every other week.
Rx and OTC drugs, any hair loss drugs or prostate drugs ever: Never

So yeah, that’s what she asked.
