I’m starting this thread so I can keep a log of my venture down TRT lane.
I started this thread originally:
-Started having low test issues about a year ago. Lower libido, long refractory period, difficulty orgasming, sexual sensation was lacking. Also have lower drive, getting way less done at work, tired all the time, etc.
-Had a few blood tests between then and now but didn’t realize how important FREE test is. My total test is good, but my SHGB is insanely high. Estradiol on the low side as well
-Had another round of tests done last week w/Defy Medical (results below). Free test is super low. SHBG is super high.
-Sent in my physical to them today, so I’m hoping to get a consult scheduled with them as quickly as possible
-One thing worth noting is I used to take finasteride. I stopped taking it when all this started and for a long time have attributed my issues to “PFS” and believed there was no cure, etc. I’m not so sure that is the case any more.
-If given the choice, I will likely do HCG + 100mg test and see how I react. Hopefully, well.
I’ll update the thread as things progress.
