Which tests to take, exactly?
Forgive my n00bishness, but I've searched the forums and I can't find a definitive answer, just various posts scattered around that have people's different tests results listed (I've seen Test, Free test, LH, & FSH)
I am suffering several symptoms that lead me to believe I may have low T. When I walk into my doc's office, I'll say "I would like the following things tested: _______________"
What do I put in the blank?

This is the right question for Jansz
But if your insurance doesn't cover, or your doc won't order all, here's a short list that I started with... it will give you a good idea:

Thanks, that's exactly what I was looking for.
One more question though, and please bare with me if it sounds strange. I am afraid to go to my usual doc because he is my whole family's physician and he is friends with my family. What exactly do I do to find another doc (i.e. how to choose a doc)? And when I am setting up an appointment, what do I say that I'm coming in for? Sorry if that's a stupid question, it's just this is all new to me.

Any suggestions as to what bloodtest is good to see if clomid is working. I am taking it for fertility. Been on TRT for a while and looking to have another kid. My biopsy showed i had no active/live sperm. Dr. took me off test-e and put me on clomid 50mg/day.
My test levels stayed about the same as when on test-e. So I am seeing Dr. this friday and I know he will do a bloodtest but i wanted to know if there are tests specific for fertility. I would assume LH/FSH are key to validate boys working
