Currently using clomid (under a doctor's orders) at 100mg/day to see if it restores pituitary function. Been on clomid for 7 weeks as I was tapering off Androgel. Been off the gel for about 10 days. Blood test on Friday revealed the following:
TOTAL TESTOTERONE: 183 ng/dL (350-890)
LH: 0.5 (1.5-9.3)
FSH: 3.0 (1.4-18.1)
Prior to this, on the gel, I was maintaining a total testosterone level between 600-700 ng/dL. My LH tested at 0.5 2 weeks prior to this test and my FSH was at 0.3. As you can see, I have secondary hypogonadism. FSH moved up some and LH didn't budge.
The question is: How long do I wait it out on the Clomid? When do I say "enough is enough" and go back on the gel?
I'm 25 years old and this whole situation is starting to kill the relationship I have with my wife.
