high LH levels. what to do?
hey guys, i came off a cycle off finaflex ripped about 3 months ago. long story short i got shutdown and i started taking nolva a little too late and then i went to go get blood taken. well these are my hormone levels and my LH is through the roof. apparently this means my nuts are shutdown still. the only reason my test levels are so high is from the nolva. my endo prescribed me to clomid but when she saw my test levels she told me not to take it. I think my endo is a ****ing retard to be honest. look at my lh levels. i told her i was taking nolva. should i go ahead and start taking the clomid? i got prescribed to 25 mgs a day for 30 days.
my blood work:
testosterone, serum- 1029 ng/dl (280-800)
free testosterone- 24.9 pg/ml (9.3-26.5 pg/ml)
LH- 18.0 (1.7-8.6)
FSH- 11.6 (1.5-12.4)
TSH- 1.630 (0.450-4.500)
Estrodial- 48.3 pg/ml (7.6-42.6)
prolactin- 9.3 ng/ml (4.0-15.2)
estrogens, total- 110 (40-115)
I think i may have found the problem. my LH levels are super high... how did my endo not catch this? is she retarded? I researched a little bit and apparently this means my nuts are still shut down. im thinkin i should go ahead and start taking the clomid right away.

If you're in the early stage of PCT, I'd follow your doctor's advice and take the Clomid. I'm no doc, but I'm about 100% confident about a couple of things. First, LH is what wakes up your gonads and tells them to make testosterone. In fact, that is why many people use HCG to jumpstart their boys. Therefore, a higher than normal LH and testosterone is a good sign that things are working again. Clomid helps you produce more LH during PCT so that when you're done, your body will produce LH and testosterone on its own. The only true measure of a successful PCT is having blood work done after PCT is over, not during. I hope this helps.

Correction...I just noticed your doc suggested not taking the clomid. If you're early into PCT, you'll need to stick with some sort of SERM until your body can produce on it's own. If you come off too early, you may crash hard.

I don't know if your balls are shut down or not, but your Estrodial is sky high. If you had run a propper PCT after your cycle, your estrogen wouldn't have shot up so high like that. I believe Nolva is better at controling estrogen than Clomid. I would tell your doctor EVERYTHING. If she is not familiar with problems caused by AAS, then find another endo who is.

You are not shutdown if your LH is high! Who told you that?! The nolva works to raise LH, which gets sent to the testes, telling them to produce testosterone. Now, when you get off the SERM your test and LH levels will drop to your original levels, if PCT went well and your bodies hormonal system isn't screwed up.

May be soon, may be a little longer. It could also be mental, dont think about it too much, that'll give you problems.
