    Very interesting, especially with all the additional references/included papers.

    There's no mention of some of the sides I've heard of for SERMS, however. As I understand things, SERMs can cause low libido, depression, strange emotions (eg crying during movies). Can anyone explain why exactly Clomid is more appropriate for this use than an AI? My impression is that Clomid induces higher T production by the same basic mechanism, however with the side effect of a lot more high-estrogen symptoms. I'm wondering what I'm missing.

    I have drs I have been helping for years with patients on this for several years no issues. We had to address other issues along the way to get the full benefits of the clomid other then that many guys are dropping off TRT and running on their own levels. Taking a 1/4 of a pill m,w,f is alot better then jabbing your self with a needle or slapping on andro - goo

    Probiotics working like a charm? Which all those other people on certain forums (COUGH COUGH) who are chasing hormones levels said where a bunch of hug wash. May be one day they will see the light or maybe ...not..

    As for E2 I pray your right I think my gut has been messed up a long time but it's hard to tell when I had heartburn it turned out to be blockages to my heart and I needed heart bypass surgery. I still need one half a Aromasin 2x's / day. I will be done with the 200 billion Probiotics this Wed. and then going on the 50 billion Probiotics the next day.

    I don't think this is a fast fix I can see things getting better but is slow so I hope my E2 gets better and I need to keep an eye on my Iron levels they might get better and I might not need Iron pills.

    increasing GI absorption may help ferritin levels. People need to wake up and stop looking at hormones and look at the over all picture.

    If I understand this correctly, when one begins HRT your system can stop producing on it's own. Would it not then make sense to use Clomid to keep your system producing what it can for as long as it can?

    But be forewarned of possible huge fluctuations in e2. Why I recommend Dr start off 100 ius 2 times a week then adjust up ward.
    Getting closer to unlocking issue with finasteride. Working on multiple cases now making progress slow but getting better.

    Article confirms my own research. I use Aromasin and torem to help keep me happy.

    Switched to torem when nolvadex and clomid seemed to have very little effect on me. Let's just say that with torem...you cAn definitely tell it is working! Lol

    Hmmm, this is interesting. I had a plan to come off TRT with my endo this summer using clomid and HCG. However, I lost my insurance and can't afford too now. I am 26 and have been on TRT for about 1.5yrs. My levels were in the 200's when I started. Currently taking:

    Test Cyp: 170mg/wk
    Arimidex: 1mg/eod (As of lately. .5mg/eod doesn't seem to help me at all. I had gyno surgery last year and am very sensitive to E2 fluctuations)

    I also have about 30,000ius of HCG waiting to be used. I am a little hesitant to come off using an internet protocol because I can't afford to see the doc if I need to. let alone sperm tests and blood tests. I would like to come off so I can have kids. That is the only reason why I want too, but there is no hurry to do that currently. I am also concerned about the strength and muscle loss I will experience when coming off. Thanks for the post. I am really liking this forum so far.

    My current physician wants me back in 30 days for retesting. The website has definitely got me thinking differently. I plan on having testing done at labcorp as mentioned in the anabolic forum. Those results will then be taken to my next appt with my GP. I'm quite sure our conversation the next time around will be quite different. If interested I can post results once they are obtained.

    I got it tested while around 150mg/wk after being on for about a year. They said it was "undetectable." I don't know if it's even possible to be producing nothing, but i'm pretty close to that. I'm sure 170mg/wk is not helping matters.

    There are clomiphene protocols published in legitimate journals. I wouldn't call them Internet protocols.

    You are correct. I've seen this idea before, and my doc was wanting to do something similar. I just meant I couldn't monitor myself correctly if I tried it because of my lack of insurance.

    I didn't think that was very high. I have seen 200mg/wk being very common these days. Do I need 170mg/wk? No. But I do prefer it over less! I have tested slightly above the high end of normal when I got my last BW. Either way, when I got my sperm tested we were still trying to find a good dose of Cyp. I started with Testim cream. Even before we settled on this dose, my sperm level was still "undetectable."

    When you need this much / week try doing 80 mgs E3D it works much better keeps you more level and helps keep Estraidol levels down. Dr. Shippen does this way to his self.

    That seems like a lot of poking. I like the 125 once a week and then forget about it. If I had to be tapping myself every 3 days with a needle to stay normal, I would look at other alternatives for sure. My endo wants to experiment with me and different levels of clomid after taking me off TRT for 3-4 weeks and I just feel like telling him to F off. I am in such a better place than I have been in probably 5-6 years and life just gets better. Do I want to be on something for the rest of my life- not really. Am I willing to if it is a minor inconvenience and makes me feel like I do- HELL YES.

    I've tried the insulin route and it just takes too long to pull and inject with that tiny needle for my taste. If it worked well, I would definitely do that.

    Draw with big one shoot with small one whole process take about a minute. 170 mgs is more then.i.like.to.see majority of recommendations i give to Drs is 40 mgs 2 times a week then i start back filing all the other issues commonly.over looked in trt. Dr and their patients have been very pleased with results. This is the future of medicine. I m being introduced to the owner of the human genome project in a few weeks. Should be interesting.

    Really? I guess I never even looked to see that the needle removes from an insulin syringe and the pull is the part I could not wait for. Hell, that thing is nothing, so I am going to check it out.

    I do great on 125ml a week and have little fluctuation. I wonder if I would do even better on 60 twice a week.
