dodged TRT for now...


  • Established
In the past year I have watched my total test bounce around, started around 410-420, with low sex drive, unknown estrogen. went and got bilateral varicocele surgery done, but had a blood draw just prior:

January this year
total test 319 ng/dL on a scale of 249-836
estradiol 18.8 pg/mL 7.6-42.6
LH 3.6 mIU/mL 1.7-8.6
FSH 3.7 1.5-12.4

Then had surgery in April. Drew blood again in July:
TT 309 249-836
estradiol 9.9 7.6-42.6
LH 2.4 1.7-8.6
FSH 3.2 1.5-12.4

3 weeks of clomid at 50mg a day (the tablets tended to powder when i tried to cut them in half), then 3 weeks to let it all clear.
TT 523
Estradiol 29.9
LH 3.2
FSH 3.5

I am going to give it 3 more months, really work on getting more sleep, try to keep eating reasonably healthy, and of course exercise, and then test again. My sex drive has been low to non existent, though its better now than it was a year ago, energy levels are funky, I can sleep 8 hours, and can work all day but as soon as I sit down I can go to sleep in minutes.

Recently I overall felt my best when the TT was 309 and estradiol was 9.9, right now I am glad to see the higher TT but the estrogen tripling is troubling. I MAY see about some OTC supplements that are supposed to help that ratio but not sure. I just hope I can get things right enough to not need TRT any time soon!
