I was trying to get off TRT.
My doctor prescribed me hcg with high dose of 2500iu EOD.
I was with that dose for a bit over two months and switched to tamoxifen with 20mg/d.
I felt horrible on tamoxifen so I took bloods after two weeks. Here are my labs (it didn’t include LH which was a mistake.
Total testosterone 1.0 nmol/l (8-29)
SHBG: 32 nmol/l (15-95)
Free testosterone: 16 pmol/l (155-800)
Now I know that two weeks is a short time, but my levels should have recoverer at least a little right?? This is basically zero.
Considering I was on hcg before tamoxifen, I should have had better results right?
Maybe the desensitize thing of high hcg isn’t a meme after all?
Anyways, what do you guys think?
My new doctor told me that I should just continue TRT.
