First off I need to preface this by mentioning I’m from Australia… My doctor is the leading men’s health expert in the country but judging by what I’ve read here, I’m sure people will critic his treatment for me.
Ok so I’ve been on TRT for 2 years now. After a dialing in period we have settled on 250mg test every 10 days, 0.5mg Adex twice weekly. I did enquire about HCG but my doctor suggested it was a waste until I decided I wanted kids.
Fast forward to now. My partner and I have decided to try for a baby. I got a semen analysis and as expected, it’s not great, definitely “subfertile”. So doctor has told me to stop taking my usual TRT protocol and prescribed me 1500iu HCG 3 times weekly until my partner conceived, then jump straight back to TRT.
I did enquire again about keeping the TRT but once again, doc suggested it was a waste. I have my concerns about coming off TRT completely, it’s made such a drastic improvement to my life, I’d hate to see that diminished.
Anyone have any advice on how to go about it? If I absolutely MUST come off TRT to make the pregnancy happen then I’ll just deal with it. 1500iu seems like a fairly high dose, what’s my chances of restoring my fertility in a timely manner on that dosage without coming off TRT?
Thanks in advance!
