I’ve been on TRT for two years with an older endocrinologist. He’s old school and wanted to do 200mg every 14 days but now lets me basically do 120-140mg/week, or whatever I want. He doesn’t believe in testing E2 or things like that, but he’s a nice guy, and easy going.
I booked an appointment with a Urologist that I know runs a TRT clinic on the side.
The guy comes into the office and just starts talking, rambling, ranting, how my endocrinologist is just trying to money grab me and he knows the best guy.
He said (without asking me why I was even there), we’re going to take you off insurance, and get you 50% Cypionate, 30% enanthate, and 20% propionate blend, 800mg, for $30 a month. We’re going to throw in Clomid at $75 a month.
I said I really just came to see if you’d help me with subcutaneous injections because I’m having a hard time with weekly IM, and wanted to know your take on TRT.
He says get used to it (injecting for life). I asked, aren’t Clomid and TRT pointless to take together as you’re gonadotropins are going to be suppressed regardless?
He looks visibly mad at this point and rants that I’m trying to be the doctor and he’s going to teach me a lesson. Draws out the HPTA on a piece of paper and then says, yes, to a degree, you’re right there will be some inhibition regardless.
Wasted $100 to be told by a Urologist to leave insurance and pay his “guy” in Florida for whatever I want. He said if I don’t take Clomid and stay on TRT my balls will never come back or make sperm again.
But the final question is…there really isn’t a point in taking Clomid on TRT, right? I’ve never seen someones bloodwork on TRT showing elevated LH/FSH while on exogenous testosterone.
