Hey everyone, I’m 40 years old 6’1” 210lbs and 4 weeks into my protocol (100mg cyp over two 50mg doses in the week). Long story but I don’t have great labs from before I started. My t was about 300 and free t was 6 on a 8-12 scale or something. We did get lh and fsh levels and they came back fine. I don’t have any pre trt e2 or shbg levels. I’m working with my pcp w insurance. I plan to get my levels checked in a couple weeks and I will request more and better labs.
So far I haven’t really experienced a ton of benefits from the trt. I’ve always struggled with little to no libido and poor erections. Often tired with brain fog. And I haven’t experienced a significant improvement. My days have been a roller coaster. Lots of blood pressure type pulsing (but bp is okay per my home monitoring). Feeling more flushed and Hotter. More energy but some insomnia. I fee like my own production has shut down this week because I’m more tired than previously and I had my injection today. I’m beginning to wonder if this trt option wasn’t ideal for me. Is this a common experience to not have much success in the first few weeks? What should I do at this point? Wait it out and stick w this protocol until bloods? Thanks a lot for your knowledge guys.
