Hello all. Long time lurker, would like to thank everyone here for the incredible knowledge base and now have a question.
Bit of background on me.
41yrs old, working out regularly last 20yrs, good shape around 17%bf.
Started trt about 7 months ago after being tired of fatigue, poor mood and general lack of drive. Had blood test and it confirmed what I had always suspected. T level of 330.
Started trt with 200mg of test cyp.
Was one of the lucky ones who took right away week 1. Felt like a million bucks on day 3 and had tons of energy, positive mood and incredible workouts. Was truly a life changing experience like someone turned on the lights.
FF a few weeks and blood tests confirmed it, T level of 1086. E was high too at 46. Doc put me on ai at .25 x3 day after injection.
Things going well, in the following months the big boost I felt tapered off but still felt good. Next blood work was t in the 900's and E at 30's.
Next test T in the 800's.
Then I felt like I hit a wall, tired and just bla. Next blood work showed that the boys stopped production and I was down the low 500's. Doc put me on hcg 250 units 2x per week. After week 2 of this I felt the boys get back to normal size and energy restored to acceptable levels.
All this time my libido was insane. Probably because I really never had a problem in that area to begin with but the trt turbo charged it. Having sex 5x per night with my gf was the norm. After climax I was ready to go 10 mins later and had very strong erections.
Due to have my bloodwork checked again in about 2 weeks.
Here lies my new issue. The last few times with my gf I had a huge drop in performance to the point she even asked what was wrong, even asked if I was not attracted to her anymore. I was able to perform fine for round one but after that I was done, no more erection or anything. Performance was fine the one time but going from several times a night with constant wood to one time and limp rope after freaked her out........to tell you the truth it freaked me out even more.
Anyone else encounter a similar situation? Plan on talking with my doc this week and getting his input and maybe see if we can do blood sooner to get a complete picture but got to tell you that this is freaking me out. Is like going from a pornstar and back down to a one performance night. am sure worrying about it isn't making it better either. Also noticed that the workouts are hit or miss, sometimes good but other times just going thru the motions and generally beat after.
Sorry for the long post but I didn't want to miss anything. Any ideas or suggestions? Thanks in adavance.
