20 yr old male
6 foot 4
Ever since about a year ago I noticed a huge decline in my sex drive and my lifting. At the gym, I haven’t been getting the same “pump” that I am used to getting and it has gotten extremely hard for me to build muscle and lose fat like I used to. I used to be a gym rat but now the gym feels like a waste of time because it doesn’t feel the same.
My sex drive is basically non existent to the point that i have to force myself to masturbate and erections are never full or completely hard. No morning wood either. Back in high school I played football and suffered a lot of concussions that ultimately ended my playing career. I then suffered another concussion about 3 months after I started feeling these symptoms too. I have read online that concussions can cause pituitary issues that can also cause these symptoms.
My total testosterone stood at 669 from a 300 - 1200 scale, my LH stood at a 4.3 from a 1.5-9.3 mIU/mL scale and my FSH stood at a 2.0 from a 1.6-8.0 mIU/mL scale. Based off of this and the fact that I had been developing gynecomastia and relatively low free T my endocrinologist is suggesting I have developed Secondary Hypogonadism which seems to be accurate.
He suggested that Chlomephine or Clomid would be a good treatment for me to undergo and that it has worked very well for previous patients that had my same symptoms. He wanted to further test my levels and check my estrogen before officially prescribing it so I should find out in a week or so I will be getting it.
I was just curious what knowledge you guys may have with Clomid and how well it works. What will I expect as far as libido goes and what are some long term effects? Also wondering if any of you guys have had the treatment?
I want to know how it works for people in my position rather than people who are using it to get off of a steroid cycle.
