Well man you are right. But we know on testosterone nobody can guarantee you fertility.
I also have a friend that is 2 years on 2000mg testosterone per week and now will have a baby. But this guy is unique, just like me and everybody else.
What we know from studies is IF you can handle 3x 500 UI per week HCG alongside testosterone most likely you will not loose any fertility or you will loose minimum. But a lot of guys cannot handle HCG. And I know how sensitive I’m to all drugs and related stuff, so my chances are not good here. Also I’ve tried one HCG shot 500UI and I felt very shitty afterwards. I know one shot is not enough to know, but I add the fact the guys that cannot handle HCG very often.
Then we go to the other option - TRT only, no HCG and to hope when you need fertility to be able to restore it. But how are you sure that you will manage to awaken your testes if they are too shrunk? I know the chances are pretty good, but still no guarantees. Everybody is unique at the end.
Also If I go TRT no matter what I will freeze sperm, but still - as I researched this also has some limitations and the frozen sperm cannot always do the job properly. To be honest I have not gone into much detail yet what is the issue with the frozen sperm from the clinic wanted me to go to discuss on site.
Bottom line is I tend to look at the fertility from the fearful perspective and I have personal issues regarding this so maybe my fear is still irrational. Maybe its a moral point of view but I’m still assessing how worthy is to jeoperdize fertility and go to TRT to eventually feel better, when my current testosterone is not that bad.
The long term health benefits of TRT I do not put in doubt because I’ve read enough literature about this. Also I know that 10 years from now when I hit 40 almost certainly I will be on TRT, but Im still hesitating what to do with the mess in my life now
