No problem. Just don't want to see young guys getting on something for longer than they need. That being said, if you truly do need to go the TRT route- it is a life changer for the better.

For sure. I don't wish have problems but I have s poor medical history of anorexia at age 16-18 and I think it's catching up. They're checking for auto immune inflammatory diseases as well as thyroid problems.. So the low t score is just one piece of this puzzle. Just made my endo apt for Tuesday afternoon so by this time next week will hopefully know more.Originally Posted by kisaj

I'm 27 and on TRT. Been almost a year now since starting. I'll say this, if you are concerned about starting a family, with being so young, I'd look in to Clomid if anything.Originally Posted by chedapalooza
Given what you have shared, you may find that a lot of your "issues" may be "fixed" or, made better through, overcoming your fears of gaining a bit of fat. Not to say that anyone should set out with a goal of getting fat, but you may be missing key nutrients due to your avoidance of certain foods and products.
I would look for a good urologist who specializes in fertility and discuss this with him, should having a family be something you are wanting for your future.
I definitely feel better on TRT as opposed to off, but it's certainly not something I'd wish for myself at our age. I had chemotherapy and corresponding hormone issues for a few years now. I have a beautiful little girl and another girl on the way. For me, the injections have been a good decision...if I can get past this hair shedding thing! ; )
Take care man, hope you get feeling better.

Thank you! Yes I have a serious gf of two years and she is concern about that as am I. I will mention clomid and fertility concerns to the dr.Originally Posted by lboston
I definitely have corrected my eating issues and it's only been a few months but I notice SLIGHT improvement despite a lower overall T score.. I'm sure once the issue is pinpointed I will be feeling great and I will do whatever is necessary

No prob man. I know it stinks to be in your twenties and feel like there's something missing in your youth.Originally Posted by chedapalooza
Just don't let anyone tell you that TRT won't shut you down and make you infertile. After about six-nine months on my LH and FSH was <.01 on the scale. Meaning, the boys are outta business!
Although they say you can recover, which is true, I've read that fertility can be adversely affected for years afterwards. Just stay cognizant of that.

Well that is where I believe my issue is stemming from- at age 16-18 I was anorexic and nearly died. Alongthe way, about a year in, I stopped producing semen. Nothing came out when I would orgasm... Leading me to believe that other things lkke sperm, testosterone, and other hormones Ike LH FSH etc were Not being produced. I believe firmly that I never fully recovered or began producing these hormones efficiently, if at all, following this traumatic condition.Originally Posted by lboston

Oh I know. I'm Eating nuts daily despite the fact they promote estrogen.. Only like 1 or 2 servings.. Usually have one wholeOriginally Posted by kisaj
Avocado for a day. Lots of salmon, cheese, all cooking done w olive oil, natty pb. The list goes on. Diet is no longer the problem for sure. I went from less than 30g carbs a day to about 200 a day now. I hadn't had a sandwich in like 7 years that's not a joke.. Now I have two for dinner sometimes lol

This has already been said, look into everything, you are way to young for TRT, unless this is your only solution. As suggested, try clomid therapy , etc. before you go down the TRT path.

What can clomid therapy accomplish? Lowering estrogen? Or stimulating test synthesis? Or im wY off lolOriginally Posted by alpinecoach

Clomid is interesting. Essentially, from my understanding, it signals for your body to produce more estrogen. It raises estrogen, thus signals your body to produce more testosterone to balance that out. However, I believe it binds to the estrogen receptors which is why men typically don't get the negative physical sides that would accompany high E (other than some emotional issues, case dependent).Originally Posted by chedapalooza
Again, that's what I think...someone more versed may chime in.

Clomid binds to estrogen receptors on the pituitary gland and imitates estrogen. Your pituitary sees the clomid as estrogen signalling to release LH and FSH which stimulate your balls to make test and sperm.
