I’ve been looking - man, have I been looking! - for a doctor who understands the usefulness of prescribing HCG and an aromatase inhibitor for someone who s/he thinks should take testosterone. I’ve Googled until my fingers and eyes hurt, I’ve dived into this and other message boards, I’ve called doctors’ offices and spoken with doctors or their nurses. Most, like the family doctor who first shoved a testosterone prescription at me several months ago, don’t even know what an aromatase inhibitor is, or what role HCG could possibly play in my treatment. To date I’ve only managed to find a very few who say things like, “Well, sure, I’ll put you on an aromatase inhibitor if your estrogen level warrants it. But I won’t prescribe HCG unless you’re wanting to have a baby.” Or “Ok, I could see adding HCG to the prescription, maybe, but an aromatase inhibitor? You’re a man, so that won’t be necessary.” Some of these are endocrinologists! And that’s as far as I’ve gotten, so I’ve instead chosen to continue remaining untreated all these months. And feeling like crap because of it.
This is by far the best forum I’ve found online on the subject of TRT, and the only one I’ve signed up for. Can someone here who lives or at least knows the situation in the Dallas-Fort Worth area suggest to me an appropriate doctor in this area? Please? I’ll keep my fingers crossed and watch for PMs.
Even if no one here can help me out, I appreciate your taking the time to consider my request. And I really appreciate this website!
