    Paradox TRT results, very low SHBG

    I started TRT 4 weeks ago. I spent a few months doing a solid research to educate myself before starting. I went so several doctors and quickly realised that there is not a single doctor in my country who is even remotely familiar with TRT. So my only option was to self-medicate. My symptoms...

    Question: With low shbg, can higher dosages and with only 1-2 times a week create sexual problems?

    Anyone with experience? With SHBG around maybe 18-20, and if u inject doses over 50mg, could that mess things up which gives you low libido and/or ED? If so, is this due to high free T and free E spikes or what is exactly going on?
