I did some blood work a few months back and had low T. I tried a bunch of supplements and remedies to try and increase my T but was unable to. Tongkat Ali, heavy lifting, eating tons of eggs, shit like that. After being retested last week, my T slightly improved but Estrogen levels decreased. Doctor put me on 25mg/d of Clomid.
Here are my stats from 9/1/2015 (with my GP):
Testosterone 310ng/dl ---- 199-1586 ng/dl
Estradiol 23.9pg/ml ---- 25-74 pg/ml
LH 2.6miu/ml ---- 1.7-11.2 miu/ml
FSH 2.4miu/ml ---- 1.0-42.5 miu/ml
Stats from 2/4/2016 (with an Endo):
Testosterone 386.2ng/dl ---- 199-1586 ng/dl
Estradiol 11.8pg/ml ---- 25-74 pg/ml
LH 2.1miu/ml ---- 1.7-11.2 miu/ml
FSH 2.9miu/ml ---- 1.0-42.5 miu/ml
Prolactin, Total 4.95ng/mL ---- 2.10-17-70 ng/mL

I hope this is enough to make sense of what is going on. My symptoms are basically low to nonexistent libido, E/D, fatigue, brain fog, generally lack of desire to do anything in life…I am a 31 year old male, I am not overweight, have always been active until recently because I am too weak/tired, I also eat clean organic foods and do not eat any crap.
I have been taking 25mg/d of Clomid for the past 2 weeks or so, despite being told to take 50mg/d, just due to some of the stuff I read about it being too strong. Haven’t really felt any side effects other than headaches and some more stable moods.
Any help and/or advice would greatly be appreciated, thanks in advance!!
