I was recently diagnosed with low T. I am 38, and my testosterone was one of the lowest my doctor had seen - My total T was 31 ng/dL and my free was 6.9 pg/mL. I understand what the numbers mean, but not what others numbers are compared to mine. I know that is very low, but is anyone else have similar readings?
Second, I began therapy six days ago, and I feel like I’ve begun to experience depression. I just feel down. I am using Axiron solution 1 pump per armpit once a day. I have not noticed any other changes as of yet. I have zero sex drive, fatigue - basically my life is an advertisement for testosterone replacement therapy. I have a feeling my T has been low for quite a few years. I just don’t want to feel worse than before. How long before you started feeling better? What were the changes you noticed? Were they dramatic and sudden, or slowly drawn out over a period of weeks or months? Do you have recommendations for different treatment options? From the research I’ve done, it seems like injections spike your levels quickly, but then they fall off quite a bit by the time your next injection comes around. Basically, if anyone here has a few minutes to share their experiences when they first started therapy it would be great. Thanks for reading, and for taking the time to answer.
