After a year of trying different soft approaches, my doctor finally agreed to put me on T injections. We tried HcG Monotherapy, then HcG plus Arimidex for 6 months, but my T only increased a little and I was not feeling any better, thus why she is trying T injections now.
Now, I am on 50mg of Test Ethanate (Delatestryl) per week and 1mg Arimidex per week in divided doses. I know that this is a very small dosage, but my Endo told me that my SHBG was so low (always around 10 nmol/L ref: 12-46) that this could do the trick. Also, she only want to add HcG if I am considering having kids in the near future.
My question: Is she right about this? Since TRT will stop my body from producing T, can the small quantity I inject put me in a situation where I will have less T than before?
As reference, here’re my last labs when I was on HcG and Arimidex only :
SHBG = 10 nmol/L (12-46) (LOW)
Testosterone (Total) = 13.9 nmol/L (10-30)
Free Testosterone = 523 pmol/L (223-915)
FSH = 03 UI/L (1.4-18.1) (LOW)
LH = 0.2 UI/L (1.5-9.3)(LOW)
E2 = 24 pmol/L (No reference value)
DHEA-SO4 = 8.9 umol/L (1.4-12.5)
Prolactin = 7.3 ug/L (2-18)
Progesterone = 4.21 nmol/L (0.9-3.9) (HIGH)
TSH = 4.45 mUI/L (0.35-5.50)
Free t3 = 6.3 pmol/L (3.5-6) (HIGH)
Free t4 = 14.7 pmol/L (10-23)
