I have Secondary Hypogonadism. My balls work fine, but my brain doesn’t tell 'em to make testosterone.
I was on Clomid, but after 6 months it caused floaters.
Now I’m on HCG only, and after 6 months my T is 900 but my E2 is ~80.
I feel great, if not a little moody once in a while, but it’s manageable. The only real side effect is severe shoulder and chest acne that I’ve never, ever gotten. It is definitely related to my new high T or E2. I’m leaning towards the high E2, because when I was on clomid I had high T and did not have this issue.
I feel pretty lost. I am now looking at ways to lower the E2, because other than that the HCG is working great. But why am I going down this path? Having a sub 200 T at 29 years old isn’t normal. Why isn’t there a culture or protocol for investigating the root cause of it? All endocrinologists seem to just want to throw you on TRT or something.
Any advice welcome. I just want to be normal again.
