...so went to an HRT doc locally who is respected and follows Crissler protocols. Was about to take the TRT plunge under his recommendation when I got cold feet about the commitment.. im not that old and thought maybe something else could be done instead. Doc is now exploring the option of Clomid 25mg every 3rd day for awhile then redo bloods and go from there. He isnt overly confident in this working, but from what ive read, since LH and Test are low, theres some hopes of having a natural restart of some sort.
Has anyone had luck with this protocol? Can someone confirm or provide alternative dosing? How long should the Clomid be run before tapering off to see if test level holds?
Totally nervous here because Ive read some folks doing well on 12.5 EOD... so not sure I trust the dosing Ive been given.
