A few months ago, I finally went to see the doc about some issues I'd been having for the last 6-8 months...extreme lethargy, mood swings, and diminished sex drive and performance, mainly. I also noticed I was gaining weight extremely easily. Got my panel back, and test was at 319, so my doc felt like it was good idea to try TRT to see if it would help. For the first 8 weeks, I received 200 every two weeks of test cyp. My energy level and mood really responded, but honestly my libido didn't change a lot. One of the biggest things I noticed that was around the 11-12 day mark, my mood and energy levels were really falling off. Toward the end of the 8 week period, I started getting some pretty significant sensitivity and soreness in my right nipple.
I got my next round of bloodwork done at the end of the 8 weeks. Test level was 180. I was concerned, obviously. The doc suggested we try 100 every week to see if that would stabilize things, and get another panel in 8 weeks. I'm on week 6, and still a little concerned. Mood is down, sex drive is absolutely crushed, and still soreness in the nipple (I'm assuming that's related to estrogen issues, but I'm not an expert). Energy level is decent, but not what it was.
I'm guessing I should give the doc a call and see what she says. Any of you have experience with similar issues? I have no idea how I could go through 8 weeks of TRT and have my test levels actually go down. I have a feeling that when I get my next round of bloodwork done, my levels will be just as bad.
