1st post, been reading forums for several months. I’m 42, relatively healthy and fit, started TRT in December from a GP with pellets. Didn’t have a great experience, it did alleviate a lot of my low T sides but had some increased anxiety and the procedure was more invasive than I was led to believe. Fortunately my GP is pretty
flexible and offered injections, gels or creams instead.
After reading a lot of the studies and some of the success stories here I decided to try compounded scrotal cream. We started on a pretty low dose, 50mg once a day. I’ve been on it a week and not feeling a lot of benefit so I think the dose needs to increase, however I’ve been feeling some pressure and feeling of “fullness” in what I believe to be my prostate area (between testicles and rectum). No urinary issues fortunately and no family history or prostate problems, my PSA was .5 prior to starting TRT. I know scrotal cream heavily favors increased DHT which can cause prostate issues, although all the studies I’ve read haven’t seen a correlation and certainly not in a weeks time.
My question is - for those that have transitioned to scrotal cream, any experiences like this? Since it’s only been a week I’m hoping it’s just transient but I certainly don’t want it to get worse, especially if I increase the dose to get some real benefit. Unfortunately my doc doesn’t have a lot of experience with scrotal cream, just regular application and injections so I’m looking for some guidance or if I should be concerned this early on.
