So after some advice on older posts and having a think over things I have stopped taking HCG for around 2 weeks now, all the negative symptoms that I was experiencing are gone which is good and I feel good physically.
Problem is my libido is still non existent, I have increased my testosterone dose to compensate for dropping HCG but can’t figure out why I’ve no libido.
Here is definitely hands down the best place for good information and people who are switched on so I’m hoping someone can help me.
One thing I have noticed though is my testicles feel dead, they haven’t shrank but there’s just nothing going on down there at all, surely testiclular function is required for libido and feeling good?
How does one say who has no testicles due to surgery actually still have libido etc? I know that we are injecting testosterone but that’s just testosterone floating and bound in our system.
I want this to work and I want to feel good on TRT, I want that feeling of testosterone, I say I feel good physically but I don’t feel the testosterone in my system, I don’t have that testosterone urge that comes upon us etc.
I’m currently on Testosterone Enanthate and have bumped my dose up to 75mg week from 50mg week to compensate for HCG drop.
I have the option to switch to Cypionate through my clinic, will a change in testosterone help perhaps?
When I originally started last year, I was started on Nebido through my GP and got a second shot at 4 weeks, for those 8 weeks I have never felt any better in my life, I was horny all the time, felt great mentally, physically, sleeping better, calmer, confident, relaxed and productive.
I got a third shot at 9 weeks and even though my levels were good I just completely crashed, my testicles shrunk, I got ED, I couldn’t literally function and ended up being off work for a month. I then switched to private and started on HCG and Test E.
That’s why I’m thinking perhaps I need my testicles functioning to feel good?
Apologies for the all over the place post but I just really need some help, I just want to feel good, below are my latest labs, I have low SHBG so I seek to feel better on lower levels but still retain a good Free T:
TT 500 ng/dl
E2 19 pg/ml
SHBG 13 nmol/l
FT 0.683 nmol/l
All other results in order, thyroid, FBC, lipids, prolactin, prostate etc, as you can see my Free testosterone is top of range even though total is middle as a result of low SHBG.
If anyone could help me greatly appreciate it, anyone with similar experience? Low shbg?
Also I keep reading about DHEA, Preg, Prog etc I
Even if I tried smaller HCG doses than before may help?
All I want is my libido back and that good feeling from TRT.
