Hi guys, I’m 46 yr old long time AAS user. My wife decided she wanted a baby via IVF a few years ago so I DC’d TRT cold turkey and went through hell for a few months. I knew my sperm count was low so we went to see Dr. Larry Lipshultz in Houston who put me on HCG and Clomid for 6 months and my sperm count bounced back to 8 million. After several cycles my wife was unable to produce any eggs so as time drug on I decided to go back on TRT with Dr. Lipschultz’s recommended maintenance dose of 500 units 3 x a week.
I have been on this for over a year now. Long story short I had an old bottle of black market test that was labeled 250mg/ml that I decided to use as my PCP increased my dosage to 300mg every 2 weeks. When my quarterly labs were drawn my levels were at 1800 and my PCP nearly shit himself so obviously the black market stuff was way higher per ML than listed. He decreased my dosage and I have been back to using the medical grade test now 200mg/ml every 2 weeks for the past 3 - 4 months.
Had my labs drawn 2 weeks ago and back down to 500. Problem is I had a sperm count run last week and it was zero as my wife and I have decided to go the donor egg route. My question is how long should I go off the test altogether prior to starting the HCG 5000 units 3 times weekly as well as the Clomid 25mg a day to get my sperm production back up?
