urologist says except for testosterone everything is normal
What should i do?
I am planing to have kids in future.....
I have bilateral varicocele.
If you're looking for long term therapy though, clomid isn't the answer. HCG might be what you're looking for.
You can try getting surgery to fix your varicocele, and then attempt a 'restart' of your HTPA as well. This has helped some people recover from low test due to varicocele. You may want to discuss this, as well as clomid or HCG with your doctor.
A really high level of LH and a low level of testosterone often means that the testicles are not working properly. A low LH level and a really low or high testosterone level may mean a problem with the pituitary gland.
Hypogonadotropic hypogonadism can be either a primary pituitary disorder with low LH stimulus and low testosterone levels, or a primary hypothalamic disorder with decreased GnRH release resulting in both low LH and testosterone levels. In this case the testes function normally but the hypothalamic-pituitary functions are abnormal. Although the testes secrete sex steroids, there is no response elsewhere in the axis. Limbic discharges may affect the hypothalamic pulsatile release of GnRH. Decreased pulse frequency leading to diminished LH response and hypogonadism.

MRI pituitary result is in. its normal. Hypothalamus is normal. Then why is LH level so low.I used testime for 11 days .After 6 days I tookd the blood test. Is this the reason why LH low?
Why is the testosterone low? if there is not problem with testes or hypothalamus.
My endo wants to prescribe androgel and then refer me to reproductive endo becs it takes time to get HCG or Gnrh.What are your thoughts on this?
Can i get clomid without prescription?
Finding another is taking time ( atleast 2-3 weeks) meanwhile I am losing all my stamina becos of very low testosterone.
I was not steroids before....
I dont know what is HTPA
I have appointment with reproductive endo on June 2nd. So till then what should i do, Current endo prescribed Androgel becos i feel very week ,cant sleep and losing muscle
he says once i stop anrogel and start taking hCG then my LH level will go up, is that correct
can i get HCG without prescription?
I suggest waiting two to three weeks for the proper medication. If you find it unbearable look to supplements that help you sleep or give you energy. Arginine and Long jack should help with sexual problems. Long jack may change your hormonal profile, but I don't think a 4-week cycle will hurt.
I also assumed that he was off the cycle.
I just got impression that the restarting HPTA is mostly a crap shoot, often, or mostly, it does not work.
I was trying to get your opinion on that.
Possibly there is a correct way of doing it.
Way back there was a thread searching for succesfull restarts, did not found any.
