I've been reviewing the wealth of information and would appreciate any input.
I'm considering starting HCG monotherapy, along with Adex, and would like recommendations on a good protocol. I original considered starting a traditional TRT protocal: T +HCG+Adex, but am trying to have kids with my wife, and she won't go for this now. I'm also interested in using Sermorelin, and am currently trying a little igflr3. However, I've never tried AAS or a TRT protocal.
A little background: 38yrs. old, in good shape, BF% about 15%, workout about 5-6 days/week (weights and cardio), would like to be in competitive bodybuilding in the next 1-2 years. Started to
experience drop in libido and ED issues around 2 years ago, along with some difficulty in acquiring lean body mass, and lethargy.
I became concerned that I may be having some test issues and consulted with my GP.
GP consult 01/08:
Chem panel, CBC, and lipids normal.
Prolactin, PSA, TSH, and Alb all normal.
Total T 446 (241-827)
SHBG 32 (8-48)
Free T 98 (34-194)
Free and weakly bound T 211 (84-402)
My GP said everything looks great, watch more porn, and take V.
My symptoms continued, so I consulted with a TRT doc my trainer referred me too.
TRT consult 09/08:
Total T 527 (241-850)
Free T 0.88 (0.62-2.81)
Free T %calc 0.17 (0.32-0.50)
Pregnenolone 287 (10-340)
DHEA 237 (88-427)
IGF 217 (109-284)
Total Corisol/DHEA-S Ratio 14.5 (5-6)
Wife requested we consult with a urologist 11/08:
Semen analysis good
Estradiol <20 (20-75)
FSH 3.8 (1.4-18.1)
LH 4.25 (1.24-8.62)
Total T 340 (175-781)
Free T 6.68 (8.8-27)
The uro is adamant about me not starting T, and so is my wife until she gets pregnant. I'm aware of the ability to still get pregnant on T, but don't need the hassle. So, I'm thinking about taking the plunge and starting HCG monotherapy for now. I also would like to start Adex at the same time, even though my E is already low (had gyno and surgery when I was 20, and concerned about rising E level).
Thanks for any wisdom!
