Clomid test worked for me... I am also secondary. I think its worth a try before going the suppressive route.

I think that using Clomid or Nolva is a waste of time, sort of.
One will newer stay forewer on any of it.
If it turns out that they work, the next step is to use HCG.
Why not start with HCG to begin with?
If it works, it works.
If it does not work, keep using it as testicle size maintenance, and just add Testosterone.

I thought a Clomid Stim Test was to see if the hypothalmus (or maybe pituitary.. one of them) will respond to GNRH signalling and rule out whether or not there is a tumor and/or dysfunction along that pathway.

Dont you think that, if youre body is so easily susceptible to going haywire when exposed to stress, that you should always be doing some kind of supplementation?
I agree that stress, bad diet, etc ****s your hormones up but... it IS the 21st century

Yep, I have no doubt that my low test (and adrenal fatigue) was the result of running two businesses plus a full-time job for several years. I got major insomnia and was stressed to the max. Now I run one business (work from home), and take time out to walk the dog etc. So that's why I think my restart has a chance.....
