Some advice on TRT, Currently on clomid

Thread starter #1
Hello

I am 27 years old, I have low T mainly due to previous steroid use, It has been 6 months since I did PCT.

After checking my bloods for the past few years, off cycle I have always been in low range, I'm not sure if this is cause or effect.

My bloods are from 3 weeks ago -

Test is 13.9 nmol/l
Free test 0.289
LH is 3.99
FSH is 3.5
SHBG is 31.5
17 beta OESTRADIOL 57 pmol/ml

TSH 1.64
Free thyroxine 15 pmol/ml



I am currently on 12.5mg clomid EOD, I feel better wellbeing wise and more motivated but I have Zero libido, No morning wood and no spontaneous erections, I don't even think about sex much.

This is not idea for a 27 year old male.

Im going to do more bloods tomorrow.

Ive done a lot of research and have a good understanding of Testosterone and TRT but before I take the jump into TRT for life, is there anything else I can try? or anything else I should test for such as high prolactin?


I have had a testosterone level of 566ng/dl naturally so I know my levels have the potential to be in normal range but this was 2 years ago.

I also have varicocele, Could this potentially lower my Test?


Thanks for the help guys

I also had a varicocele and from what I remember it could certainly lower test although there is no way to know for sure AFAIK. My reasoning is that it needed to be fixed to be sure, so I got it fixed before I took other measures. I hate to say it but after that, working with someone like Dr. Crisler who seems to deal with a lot of these cases it likely a good idea. I would think that an HCG stimulation program would also, at a minimum, be useful before committing to TRT.

Did you get labs done before and after? Was there a change in natural test production?
i know each case will be different but just out of curiosity
