Has ANYONE Recovered Their HPTA?

  1. Has ANYONE Recovered Their HPTA?


    Anyone that has had secondary Hypogonadism, or has been on HRT, or just simply shut down for a while following a cycle... has anyone in this situation recovered their HPTA and is now functioning (atleast somewhat) normal? I've gone to many forums throughout the years and haven't been able to find anyone to respond and say they recovered? Someone out there has to have done it because if not, why would there be even any restart protocols? It would really be a big help and inspiration to know if anyone has gotten back to normal, even if its just one person... So please if you could help, let me know, thanks a lot bros

    Lots of wasted time and unnecessary suffering.

  3. according to Dr. Shippen he has recovered a couple of people, but its just that I never hear from anyone themselves ever that has done it... hopefully somebody is out there who has done it, I can't take this anymore I'm 20 years old..

    Do not take it hard, you do not even know, possibly your HPTA was woobly to begin with.

  5. Well it was normal, I always had great erections, libido, overall energy, fast metabolism, then I took prohormones by VPX called Syngex along with Andro from muscletech and it has had me shut down for a while

    and people are biathcing about taking steroids..At least you know what they do and have been around for 40-50 years these prohormones IMO are more detrimental then actually steroids in many ways because people have no clue how they affect the body or different systems. I never touch prohormones other then tribestan or long jack. All this chemical chain manipulation to fool fda into allowing them on the market but we really do not know the effects short or long time. I think in the past 2 years more people have been screwed up from prohormones then steroid them selves..Most people who have unresolved psycholgoical issues with the world we live in to day is probably the majority of teenager are the ones that are suffering the most ..

    Where are you located
    Have you been to a good dr or internal medicine person
    do you have blood work Jansz can provide a shorten version of necessary test to futher validate things

    Here is what I recommned
    testosterone panel
    dht
    estrodial
    dhea-s
    progesterone
    shbg
    ha1c
    cortisol am
    cortisol free
    ft3
    ft4
    CBC
    CMP with liver panel
    lipid panel
    ferritin
    vitamin 25 oh,d

    You are lucky that you are still young, try to be in your middle 40's and try to get your HPTA restarted..

    I agree with han, I think with all the stuff like, Superdrol, M1T, etc, a lot of doctors, like Dr. John, will have a thriving practice trying to get 20-somethings restarted..

    IMO you will recover, it will just take some time.

    Not exactly Jan... I have recovered my HPTA; as my numbers reflect in the normal range consistently for a year now. My current issue at hand now is trying to figure out why my progress in "raising" my testosterone levels is going at a snail's pace.

    I wouldn't say that I'm suffering though... lol... I'm more like "hung up" on figuring out my above issue... is all.. May be it's a matter of time!!! I mean I've only been at it for a year now.. after being shut down for years.

    HAN... I never thought tribestan is a prohormone!!!??? It's just Tribulus isn't it??

  11. dr. shippens goal is to get me off clomid shortly, hes taking me to 20mg then 10mg then off.

    well it triggers LH but i still classify it as a test booster

  14. yeah, i had the chance but i told her i have to get home. im a wuss i know =[

    i think it would of worked though....

    like after 10pm my libido gets shot to zero.

  15. He found Clomid with that low of dosage? I thought it only came in 50 mg...

    I know e2 rises at night time hmm interesting fact could you have a delayed e2 rise from T increase in the morning or may be metabolise slower then normal people? Be interesting to see the diurnal change from am to PM with e2

    I'd love to learn about some compounds that (safely) increase LH. I'm no so sure about Tribulus though. Consider:

    "The findings in the current study anticipate that Tribulus terrestris steroid saponins possess neither direct nor indirect androgen-increasing properties."
    http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/sites/en...RVAbstractPlus

    "It was concluded that T. terrestris did not produce the large gains in strength or lean muscle mass that many manufacturers claim can be experienced within 5-28 days. Furthermore, T. terrestris did not alter the urinary T/E ratio and would not place an athlete at risk of testing positive based on the World Anti-Doping Agency's urinary T/E ratio limit of 4:1."

  19. well i been taking 5-htp, it kills my libido abit, but it gives me great morning wood and deep sleep.

    the best would be have her sleep over and do her as soon as i wake up =]

  20. damn its been a while since ive been shut down, I'd say 3 years. my test levels were in the toilet they were in the mid 200's, LH and FSH low as well. I did nothing for PCT except trying clomid for 2 months in 2005 under the supervision of a doctor, levels went up to mid 800's but after being off the clomid they dropped back. Went to shippen recently, I've been on EOD HCG 250iu, levels were in the 1000's but more recently they dropped to 500 under the same dosage, I'm guessing because I used the same bottle of HCG for longer than the 30 days thats recommended for maximum potency. I'm hoping its not leydig cell desensitation, I'll know by next week because I just got a new HCG bottle a few days ago and I'm gonna give it about a week before I get another blood test. Either way, I gotta get my life back... Thanks for the help bros, if you have any more imput feel free

  21. Have you been taking any other meds during the 3 years?? such as depression meds.. etc..?? What are your stats?? meaning weight... body fat etc?? What's your estrogen levels? Any sleep apenea? Adrenal fatigue?? Thyroid issues?? etc... You gotta try to find the source of the problem... It's unusual to stay so suppressed for so long from just a prohormone cycle!!!

  22. hmmm i tried tribestan for a little while, that probably didn't effect me all that much though. i took acne pills i believe it was minocycline for a while, but I don't think that would supress anything either... The stupid thing that really got me was that fact that I was around 17 at the time, and I took the andro first experienced gyno, weight gain, etc. Then without much time off (probably a month) I hit it again with the Syngex which was a combo of I think 4-AD, 1-AD, a lot of stuff in it...most powerful one at the time though. Stats right now I'm 5"8, 142. My E2 hasnt been high for a long time, also according to my 24hr urine test my adrenals along with everything else is functioning fine its just my test levels. I'm wondering if the 24hr urine test was flawed in any way, I had a few red bulls that day.

    Did you take a crap load of flax seed oil in the past? Alot of people I have known have caused an imbalance including my self from taking alot of this when we did not eat alot of whole eggs or red meat which contained the opposite..MY ratios where ass bakcwards affecting my hormonal axis and jaming up my liver and causing all kinds of hormonal issues as well as oxidative stress. Since addin fish oils back in to correct the imbalnace I acn feel the metabolic shift into fat burning mode vs fat storing mood. It takes like 2-3 months to restabiliz, but most bodybuilders go against the grain and have more 3:6 then the typical american.

    good suggestion bro, I've had the omega 3-6-9 complex in my fridge for a while..just haven't been taking them. What kind of doseage do you suggest a day?

  25. I also was on a strict diet for a year, eating maintenance with a 40/40/20 carb/protein/fat. It was such a clean diet, absolutely no candy, beer, high fat sauces, etc. It got me shredded but a doctor of mind did mention to me that I might not be giving my body all the fats and what not needed to produce the correct amount of hormones...could he have been right?

    It depends what types of fat you were eating. I'm coming to the realization that we need more of just about all fats except Omega-6... If that 20% fat was short on saturated fat or fish oil, etc. then maybe you were missing something.

  27. 3 years ago i was on a strict diet of vegetarianism, very high in soy!!

    now i have adrenal fatigue, hypothyroidism, secondary.

    CAN YOU SAY IODINE DEFIENCY !! did you salt your food or avoid that like the plaque too?
    Simple urine test solves this problem..

    Iodine defiency induces hypothyroid and hypoadrenal function in rats

  29. no i didnt use any salt.

    GOOD but contains no iodine LOL
    Iodine levels will never get replenished with just pain sea salts.
    before taking iodine verify it first !! Quest has a spot iodine test that they can do .. covered by insurance
