Im 24 yrs old. I went on TRT for secondary hypogondadism at the age of 19. Started at 300ng/dl, TRT put me at 1,000ng/dl
At 19yrs old on 150mg/daily cream based HRT:
Top of range free t
shbg - 15
ultra sensitive estradiol - 23
Thyroid always in range
My hrt cream has always made me feel great. Iv always needed very little arimidex. The DHT from the cream put me at 3x the range and gave me a really nice well-being and sex drive.
At 21yrs old I got into steroids, using my excuse of not needing a PCT since being on HRT.
For the past 2 years, I have run 700-1000mg/testosterone and 700mg masteron PER WEEK. For 2 years straight, cycling DBOL/Anavar on top. My body has changed dramatically and I've won state competitions.
However, I have decided I'm done with the steroids abuse. I just want my life back. As of 14 days ago, I ceased all steroids and returned to my HRT.
I am now experiencing anhedonia and extremely low sex drive. In otherwords, I feel like I have very low dopamine levels. I crave nicotine, I dont sleep well, I can't feel any happiness or motivation. It feels WORSE then PCT. And my sex drive was at first non-existant, now its just extremely low desrie and very long refractory period.
Is it possible that I'm experiencing Dopamine withdrawal symptoms? Is this recoverable? What do you guys anticipate?
I didn't realize that higher levels of androgens could actually spoil ur reward system from a sexual standpoint.
