Your endo is an idiot like my endo and most endos are bro. First accept this fact.
Yes, you may have been misdiagnosed with primary, but so what? I’m with secondary and guess what…there is not much difference.
Yes, you can try clomid and nova. But they have terrible side effects with most patients me included(i’ve tried only clomid in fact). Clomid in most cases will elevate your T levels but WILL NOT resolve your symptoms. You have high T on paper and continue to feel like shit or even worse. What I’ve heard of nova it is even worse because it will crash your estrogen.
HCG may work. I myself think to try it. But the best doctors that do hormone OPTIMIZATION and are not shitheads like this endo are very skeptical about HCG monotherapy. According to them it cannot bring the same symptom improvements like TRT.
Do you think you can take clomid/nolva/HCG for some time and your natural production becomes strong, you stop the medications and you remain in the top ranges? This will not happen man. YOu will get back to your shitty natural levels with all the symptoms. And do you believe it is better to take long-term this shit clomid thant TRT? Guess what…
The only thing you need to consider with TRT according to me is the fertility issue. I also do not have children and am afraid of that. So adding adequate amount of HCG to the cocktail to keep fertility and continuing TRT seems the best approach.
With all else you are gonna fuck yourself. And tell this endo that he has now idea what normal levels are and you don’t want to be in the shitty lab levels but you want to be optimal and feel optimal.
