Hey everyone! Im really looking for advice as I am torn between taking and not taking TRT. First off, in 45, 6’1 200 lbs. Been involved in sports and working out all my life off and on. The past few years have brought some low T symptoms…more lethargic than normal - although I can still function fine at work and out of work, decreased libido, much weaker and infrequent erections, cant fall back to sleep a lot of times after getting up at night, cannot change my body composition (think skinny fat) even when working out several times a week and eating healthy, very irritable and sometimes short tempered with my family which is affecting my wife and kids. I am speaking to a HRT clinic who recommends TRT. It scares the S%&^ out of me to be on this for the rest of my days, but if it helps I will do anything.
The TRT rep said that I could do a trial w/ cypionate and hcg for 3 months to see if it is for me. Is this a reasonable course of action here? if I see no effects from TRT, then i will be on this stuff for the rest of my life for no reason, and it is expensive and a life altering lifestyle .
Here are some numbers: I am confused because my total is low but free test is OK. ANY advice would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
