That’s right…I’m 21 years old, about to turn 22 and I’ve been suffering from gyno-like symptoms for the last 6 months or so, have taken nolva from some buddies a few times but it never quite did the trick.
I went to the endocrinologist and found out my test levels were EXTREMELY low for any male’s age, let alone mine. The only thing close to steroids I’ve ever done was a cycle of RPN havoc promptly followed by nolva about a 1.5yrs ago.
It had a very potent effect on me though. I gained about 25lbs of mass, my bench press went from 240 to 315 and my squat went from 335 to 405(x8 never maxed) all in 4 weeks. Prior to taking havoc I had broken my hand and had taken 5 weeks off from lifting, so I would’ve had significant gains anyways but these were astronomical.
Anyways, I’m trying to find information online about what the doctor may do to treat my condition that he’s sure was caused by the havoc, and he probably is right but it seems odd that it would surface so much later.
There’s little to no info about males my age in my situation, it’s all about older men who naturally begin to stop producing test. The doctor is running more tests to see what’s causing the low test, either my testes or my pituitary.
My question is: Has anyone here been in my shoes or similar shoes? What’s going to happen to me and/or what types of meds will the doctor give me? Is it possible that I could be prescribed t-gel or shots and after a few doses be fine and thats that or is this something I’m going to have to deal with for life?
My doctor was very unhelpful and rather than answering my worries proceeded to question me atleast 6 times “are you sure you’re not taking any steroids” No you’re right doc, there’s EQ in my eggs, sorry I’ve been lying this whole time. God damn.
I really hope someone here knows something because I won’t know anything from him for a week and I’m pretty stressed over it. Thanks for your input.
I’m just about to turn 22 so I was almost 21 when I took it. Hopefully TRT won’t be necessary. What baffles the doctor is that although my test levels are extremely low, I still since the initial tests (5 weeks ago) have put on about 6lbs of muscle and my bench press has gone up about 15lbs.
So how could I be improving in muscle with such low test levels and NO I’m NOT on roids or ph. I switched diets a little (increased daily proteins by about 50g, fats by about 25g, decreased carbs by 50g) but shouldn’t I be experiencing nearly no growth if not muscle wasting with 116 ng/dl total test? Free and bioavailable were very low too (20’s and 40’s)
