I have all my hair and have not noticed any change.
In recent years my libido has decreased and rather than just give up and consider it a normal part of getting old I started reading and decided to take some action. I found a “Mens Health” clinic that started me on 200mg test-c injection every 10 days. The first couple injections made me really sore at the inj site but that got better and is no longer a prob. After 3-4 injections my nips got really tender so I ask about it and got a blank stare like they had never heard of that? I had read enough to know it was a common problem. The good news is that problem did slowly go away and around the same time I noticed libido was much improved. I have now been on the same 200mg every 10 days for just over 3 months and my family jewels have been gone since about the second month.
I ask them about HCG and got another blank stare like what is that.
So I went back to reading and I admit it gets very confusing.
The only lab results I have are from 12/15/12
HGB 18.0 High g/dl 12.6 - 17.7
HCT 52.7 High % 37.5 - 51.0
Testosterone, Serum 566 ng/dl 348 - 1197
Estradiol Roche ECLIA methodology 17.8 pg/ml 7.6 - 42.6 (time frame when nips were sore)
A little more personal history. I have worked the worst schedule you could imagine for almost 35 yrs. All 3 shifts, weekends, holidays, and changing shifts every 2 weeks since the 70’s. My circadian rhythm has no rhythm and my eating habits have no pattern. I think they say it’s not real good for your health? The good part is I plan to retire soon and all things considered my health is good.
I would like to switch from IM injections to subq and consider adding HCG.
