So I’ve been active on this forum for some months now, gave TRT a go after my blood test revealed Low free T and high e2 with high SHBG.
I don’t want to get onto the details again, as all i have been thinking about in the last few months. TRT has made me feel more depressed, like before it was a lowish mood but I was functional, all this stress and uncertainty about TRT made me a zombie. I cannot function like this, I’m really lifeless, I didn’t know it was possible, Body aches, anxiety. I am of the opinion that T may not itself be causing 100% of these issues but my obsessing over how I feel with it and the anxiety of T not doing anything positive except morning wood is the reason for my lifeless state.
So I’m gonna go off and get rid of this stress, as I was not nearly close to the mess I have been in the past 2-3 months since TRT. I may revisit this avenue if I don’t recover from the restart, when I’m more calm about it. For now, I want to be medicine free and get back to day to day functioning, which at this stage I am unable to do with TRT and the stress.
I have read the HPTA restart sticky. What I understand is that I’ll have to inject hCG for 3-4 weeks after stopping T injections to avoid a crash between T washes out and then run nolvadex at 20mg EOD and anastrozole. After 4-6 weeks, depending on the bloodwork, taper off the nolvadex and cruise on anastrozole to control e2 rebound.is this okay?
