I am new to HRT/TRT and am seeking some sound advice on how to properly navigate this new terrain in my life.
I am 35 years old, 5'10", 180 lbs. About 15% BF. I get my health care through the VA (former Navy). I just did a T-test 2 weeks ago after pleading with my doc for 2 months and telling him that I have felt like crap in every way for the longest time...it came back very low. 141 ng. The doc ordered a second set of labs and they came back as follows: LH 2.8, FSH 2.6, ProLct 12.1, Cortisol (230pm) 5.0.
History: I have been on and off opiates since 2008 stemming from a service connected injury. I have finally quit the opiates and am now on a semi-opioid (Suboxone) for 2 months now. I did a 12 week cycle of BD Test-Cyp in the summer of 2006. From what I could remember my PCT was half ass. I did arimidex and HCG. In the summer of 2009 I did a 6 week cycle of Winnie only, 50mg a day. Got decent results. No pct. This past summer(2011) I did a 25 day cycle of prescription grade oxandrolone, I did a pyramid distribution over those days(June 20 to July 15th) with a max dosage of 30 mg. Got excellent results. No PCT.
Current status: I have Low-T and nipple sensitivity(mostly my left nipple). I have bad mood swings, low energy. I still get good erections and have a good sex drive though. The Doc has prescribed me either Testim or Andro-gel (he doesn't know yet, I find out tomorrow or early next week because of some VA process). I am just looking for some good advice on how and what to do to feel better and get right.
Any good input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.
