Does this sound normal? I just started TRT treatment but still have a couple questions.
Had several symptoms of low testosterone and when tested my total was 248 in the morning and dropped throughout the day to approx 190 by end of day. The normal range is 241-800. I dropped past the low level by 10am.
The endo I saw ran a lot of tests. All were normal (LH, prolactin, Free Test, etc.). Had a MRI and pituary gland was normal. Endo said I had secondary hypogonadism.
Endo first gave me 300mg of Depo-T for 3 weeks. This worked great. This cleared up all the symptoms I had. At the end of the 3 weeks total testosterone was 425 in same scale.
I asked Endo about nipple discharge I had about 8 days into the shot. He did nothing for it. (discharge was small leakage from nipples--could not tell any color and I could not excret any liquid if I forced it). He basically ignored this.
When I asked whether I should be also using some sort of SERM or AI he said only if I show effects of Gyno. But because of the discharge he lowered the dosage to 200mg every two weeks.
Now -- After the second shot of 200mg it seems that 3 or 4 days after the shot I still have some effects of low testosterone. This will go away, but then come back. Also, the nipple discharge always happens the first week after the shot. Another symptom after the shot is that I seem to gain a lot of water weight the first week after the shot.
My question I have is this normal? I don't go back to the Endo for another 3 months and there are no tests or blood work scheduled. The other item of interest is that since starting the lower dosage of 200mg this has completely eliminated any sex drive.
