I used to be on TRT injection for about 3 years and towards the end of those years, I’ve also supplemented it with HCG hoping to get my boys back. Unfortunately the semen analysis showed ZERO sperm count. So, I stopped the injection (100 mg/week), went on high doses of HCG for two weeks and then the doc put me on 25mg of Clomid everyday. I’ve been on it for about 10 days and just now I am starting to feel fatigued, no sex drive, no wood, etc. During the first several days I felt great. I am thinking by E2 is starting to rise. However, I’ve tried anastrozole and letrozole in the past and had very nasty sides and either no effect on E2 (anastrozole) or completely diminished it (very low dose of Letro).
Therefore, I am thinking of starting to taper off of Clomid immediately. My question is:
- Is it too soon to start tapering off? Or do I need to be on it for a while to get my sperm count to come back up?
- What is the protocol for tapering off of Clomid?
- Is my dose of 25mg ED too much even to get my sperm count back up?
At this point, my entire goal is to get my wife pregnant quickest way possible Once this is accomplished then I can worry about getting back on TRT.
