I would need some advises from more experienced people than me.
Six weeks ago my endo placed me on Nebido. I went to see him because I feel that my erections are degrading. I don’t have them every morning any more and when I have them are week and short lasting. When I have sex my penis needs to be continuously stimulated otherwise if not stimulated for 1 minute (more or less) he is going down. My erections are decent, but not fully rigid as four years ago (I’m 30 years old).
My FSH and LH were always elevated - my testicles were brought down trough a surgery when I was a kid. My doc sent me to take some blood tests and then he placed me on Nebido (he told me that we should try to see how’s going). I got one shot six weeks ago. Since then I have started to feel a bit better (more energy, more active, better libido, erections quite the same I would say). Today I have remade my blood tests and some my doc. He told me that it’s all good and that I should wait for two more weeks and then to take one more shoot (in the week nine -started nebido on 23th of april - since my first shot). He told me that my tests are producing testosterone and that he would like me to go smooth and not to go to harsh on them. He is telling me that he thinks that my testosterone level is quite good and that usually I would not be in need of TRT. I don’t know what to think.
The fact is that I am comparing the lab tests from today with the previous and I see an increase just regarding the Free testosterone, the blood one is even a bit lower. I will post here my previous and actual blood test and I will appreciate if I could get some opinions from you guys. Do you think my doc is proceeding properly? He is continuously telling me that I have good testosterone levels. But I don’t know what to say. I have read all kind of things on the internet.
