Its been about a year now that i was first ‘diagnosed’ with low T. I’m 23 years old and my tests over the past year had been coming back Total Test 200-400 range. Was on TRT from July 2009-September 2009 (injections) And I didn’t feel any better, so he checked my thyroid levels and they were almost 5x too high.
After 3 months they normalized themselves without me doing any treatment. So then we went back to testing my Test because I have low energy, poor mood/sense of well being, low sex drive and erectile dysfunction 99% of the time. Cant build muscle, can only maintain what I have and when I increase my calorie intake it goes to fat instead of muscle.
SO my endo has me doing 50mg of clomid EOD for a month (which i did) then it didnt help so he currently has me bumped up to 50mg clomid every day and I’ve been doing this for about a month, SLIGHT improvements, but still my main concern at this point is low sex drive and erectile problems. Blood test today came back:
Total Test 949 ng/dl (250-1100) normal
Free Test 129.5 pg/ml (35-155) normal
%free test 1.35 (1.5-2.2) so this is low
does my low %free test mean anything since my total test and free test are both normal?
Anyone have any clue what could be causing my low sex drive and erectile problems?
Also, I’d assume I wont be taking the clomid for much longer, so when I stop taking it wont my testosterone levels fall back down?
