Hey everyone. I have read a lot of different threads and responses from this group and you guys seem to know your stuff so I decided to reach out for support and advice. I have had Primary Hypogonadism for the past 6 years. I wont bore you with the details but it started when I turned 27, was put through a battery of tests, nothing abnormal found except my T and Free T. My FSH and LH were very elevated. CT was negative for pituitary tumor. I am now 32 years old 5’7 164 pounds. I spent a lot of time trying to fix this on my own, obviously failed and I have finally given up and decided to dedicate myself to TRT. I struggled with all the classic symptoms, fatigue, low libido, difficulty concentrating ETC. Here are the Lab results prior to TRT.
Free T- under 5(didn’t even register)
All my other labs were normal. lipids were optimal, blood counts optimal. No other issues. Fortunately I eat good and work out often so I am in very good physical shape. I was put on a TRT plan as follows:100MG injection once per week(Testosterone Cipronate). I took the first injection two days ago. I will say that I feel much more awake and able to focus, I don’t feel like I am going to fall asleep and I don’t feel groggy and cloudy all day. Some minor surges in libido but nothing significant, I had morning wood this AM.
I know it takes weeks to feel the full effects. But basically I was thinking about maybe taking the 100MG shots in 50MG increments twice per week. I dread having E2 problems and I really don’t want any more hormonal nightmares, anyway with my SGHB being 77, would two separate injections be necessary? Plus my E2 is already low, so it needs to come up at some point a bit anyway. I have blood work scheduled for mid-may. Thanks for any responses guys.
