I got my test results back yesterday. Total T was 351 or something (check the thread I started yesterday I don’t have results in front of me), however FREE T was higher than average and the total percent of free to total was 5.5% or something.
Estridial was 35 (out of 0-52 or somethign scale).
The doctor wants to put me on androgel. However, I don’t know how this would work as wouldn’t my body just shut down a corresponding endogenous production of T, leaving me in the same place overall?
Anyway, I read that taking an AI ALONE could raise T. Obviously, I’d have to be careful not to lower it too much.
I ask because I don’t think I can get a test other than androgel. Even if I did, it would be IM injections, and I don’t feel like waiting 2 hours in the waiting room every 10 days for an injection. He wasn’t familiar with SubQ and didn’t seem open to the idea of me injecting myself anyway. So I think that’s out.
Or maybe my free T means I don’t need T?
I do have a greasy face, an abundance of body hair (yay me) and relatively muscular. I’m also pretty fat (6’1" 245) and have low libido/energy.
I don’t think I could get T legally and don’t want to break the law. AI are available and are less illegal I believe.
