I went and saw my urologist this past week and had the above blood results. Doc is starting me on 200mg Test Cyp once weekly-I may break it into 100mg every 3.5 days. Also was put on 750IU of HCG twice a week to preserve fertility along with 1 mg per week of Anastrozole. May not use Anastrozole until I feel it is needed.

What ya'll think?

*I took prohormones 6-7 years ago without a proper PCT and then a SARM run 2 years ago that shut me down bad. Did 4 months of clomid at 50mg a day and was off for the past year

Start with 200mg a week is way too much. If I were you I would start with a much lower dosage (120mg would be a good place to start). Also HCG at 750IU is a bit too much for a single dosage. I would either do 500IU 2-3x a week. I wouldn’t introduce anastrozole until having bloodwork done (or having obvious symptoms of high estradiol) after 6-8 weeks of starting TRT (remember to get estradiol sensitive tested). Also if you have to introduce anastrozole I would start slowly with no more than 0.25mg twice a week potentially less than that.
Regarding fertility you should get a semen analysis done BEFORE starting TRT. And then another one done 3-6 months after starting. HCG might not be enough to keep you fertile. You might need to add FSH/HMG. Also keep in mind that it is possible most of the times to resume spermatogenisis stopping TRT and adding a SERM like clomid. Problem it is might take a long time to resume spermatogenisis (it really varies individual by individual)
Banking sperm might be cheap insurance just in case.
