I been on testosterone therapy now for a little over 1 year and half (I’m 34 years old). It’s been life changing and ingrained in my routine but recent development have me worried. My PSA levels have gone from 2.1, 3.3, 4.1 and back down to 3.4. The big scare happened when my PSA showed 4.1, but my doctor prescribed me flow-max and it dropped back down which indicates an enlarged prostate.
My doctor told me I should get off TRT and prescribed me Clomiphene and HCG to taper me off. I had enough refills of testosterone that I haven’t started that treatment, I’m super conflicted because I know what’s waiting for me when I revert back to pre trt level (low 300s).
On top of that, I am experiencing symptoms of an enlarged prostate, at least I think. When I ejaculate (which I also lose control over and kind of just leak out during intercourse), I have this urge to urinate that eventually goes away after a few minutes. It sucks for my sex life, but with flomax those symptoms go away as long as I take it everyday.
I know these are question better suited for a doctor, and I will but hoping someone in the community knows what I’m going through and can shed additional insight.
Will getting off trt revert my enlarged prostate back to it’s natural state?
What options are available to me outside of stopping trt?
For reference on numbers; I currently take 40 mg every other day with no AI. The community helped me dial in, removing HCG helped stable my levels. Thinking about it now, these symptoms started around the time I discontinued HCG if that helps get me some answers.
