    Am I ok?


    I feel energetic.
    I can masturbate whenever I want?
    I can get hard on whenever I want?
    I do get morning wood and nocturnal erections.
    I can sleep well.
    I can eat anything I want?
    I can concentrate much at work.
    I have more libido

    BUT

    I am not able to put on weight.


    Do I still need to worry about testosterone????

    No. probably your diet, traiing and metabolism or a combination. Especially if you can eat anythig you want and can't put on weight.

    Specifically, check or tuberculosis, it causes very high sex drive and energy.

    Please just see your GP for a full physical including a thorough hormone profile. If there is something out of order then take action. Until then eat more.

    Enjoy good life.

    If anything, make very extensive test, similar to my list or more expanded.

    I had low testosterone few months back. I was on shots for 2 months.
    Now I am not on any shots or TRT. But I got everything back except my weight.
    Thatís the reason for this post. Do I still need to worry about low test? I donít want to go to Endo and test for testosterone, because he may tell me not to quit TRT.

    I am the same way... I can eat all I want, including gainer shakes and I stay the same weight. I am the same weight as you but even a couple inches taller. Most guys my age are getting fat, so hey I can't complain.

    How old are you?

    This may be an issue as exogenous testosterone for a short period of two months may have inhibited you to a degree. Likely reboundable, but who knows.

    Does everybody experience this kind of problem. exogenous testosterone should increase weight not decrease right??

    When I took testosterone shots, I used to get painful erections (nocturnal), and energy was decreasing in my thighs,hips , and arms and thus lead to loss of muscle/weight

    Exogenous testosterone within therapeutic ranges does not necessarily result in significant composition transformations of gains in LBM or loss of bodyfat. It optimizes the potential with appropriate effort and diet disciplines.

    Exogenous testosterone even at therapeutic levels is enough to inhibit your natural testosterone production. To what degree is likely related to the dose and duration and the degree and cause that you were initial deficient in the first place.

    Injecting for tow months to raise levels and then coming off is ultimately the same as running a steroid cycle only low dose. TRT is very different and is usually a lifetime treatment option unless other options to re-establish HPTA are employed.

    So now that you have disclosed the most pertinent previously undisclosed piece of the puzzle I suggest that you have a thorough follow up and hormone panel with the Dr that treated you for two months, or better yet one more knowledgeable and or qualified in the field.

    Good luck.

    Hi darkblue1

    how are you feeling now. are you still on TRT of any kind? ist your T-levle back?
    I think you used either Saw Palmetto or finesteride in the past. Did you use any thing for your hairloss?

    Please give some updates on my email
