Hi, everyone. I’m 40 years old. My testosterone has been no higher than 330 with normal prolactin, shbg, fsh for the last 5 years. My lh was slightly high a few times. When it was first diagnosed I was 35 and 5’ 9" 220 lbs. I got as high as 230 lbs. before I got serious about trying to regain my health and testosterone levels. I started counting calories and lifting weights 1 year ago. Today I weigh 185 and have some improved muscle tone but still struggle with some belly fat. I started Clomid around a year ago as well. This got my testosterone to 500 or so. Estradiol stayed in the normal range.
I went off of it the last 3 months at my doctor’s suggestion to see if I could produce on my own. This morning I found out my level is 99. I assume I have primary hypogonadism. What I don’t understand is I don’t fit any of the criteria for the causes of primary hypo. Any ideas on what could be the cause? I’ve been tested for the usual things such as hemochromatosis, Never had any known infections such as mumps. No physical injury. Negative for HIV, etc. I did have an inguinal hernia repaired 3 years ago, however. I developed secondary sexually characteristics normally and my testosterone came back at 750 in my mid 20s. Is there such a thing as idiopathic primary hypo where ther is just no known reason? I will be going back to my urologist in 2 weeks to start test and possibly hcg to maintain fertility. Thanks
