    Attempting complete restart after 4 years of TRT


    I have been on an HCG and Arimidex protocol for 2 years. HCG taken Mon, Wed, Fri @ 1250 iu each. Arimidex same days @ 1mg each. That keeps my TT level around 900, Free T around 230. E is always good. LH and FSH are always near zero because of the exogenous LH (HCG).

    My body is obviously capable of producing the hormones.

    -History
    When I first got on TRT in 2009, I was uneducated so it was strictly Test injections or gel (typical doctor). After 9 months of being on it, I freaked out when I realized it shut down my sperm production. So I went to a fertility doc who put me on solo Clomid. My sperm came back in 3 months but LH never really went high enough to jump-start Test. I did that for about 6 months. After that I went back on test injects with small amounts of HCG to keep sperm production. Later, I decided to try HCG solo and here I am today and have been very happy with everything.

    Now I want to try a very thorough restart protocol to see what my body can do. Since my only dealings with Clomid were by itself and with minimal results, I'm thinking a mix of the following plan might stand a chance. See below:

    -1st 2 months:
    ----HCG/1250 iu Mon, Wed, Fri (same as I'm doing now)
    ----Clomid/50 mg daily

    -Next 15 days (if tests show LH, FSH responding from Clomid)
    ----Clomid/50 mg daily
    ----HCG/600 iu Mon, Wed, Fri
    ----HMG/75 iu every day for 15 days
    ----Will stop HCG at end of the 15 days

    -Next ?? months (depending on periodic labs)
    ----Clomid/50 mg
    ----Phase out Clomid if LH, FSH, and Test start to kick in
    at good levels

    I will do some well reviewed brand of natural test booster during the whole course of this. Anybody suggest a brand? I will also be doing pregnenolone for the duration.
    I will monitor E levels and use AI accordingly.


    I'm definitely going to try this. I will take any suggested additions, time-frame changes, or any other helpful advice.

    Hopefully, someone on here has had some success that lasted. I have a very good doc that understands the dynamics of all these hormones and will monitor this accordingly.

    My profile name is wrong. I do not recommend trying TESTIM. It is a smelly sticky mess. I was a newby when I tried it. Go Androgel and compounded!
