I'm starting to think there is a big correlation between primary hypogonadisim and low libido and e.d. and low s.h.b.g. even after trt I almost find no guys who are true primary getting along sexually vibrantly without working testicles. Any primary guys care to share?

Did you abandon the nandrolone experiment? What were your takeaways?
Yes I just abandoned my nandrolone, I may go back to it later. I just had my cholesterol lipid panel, before stopping the nandrolone. I’ll like to see what results I get. Then make a decision on it. Choices choices choices LOL

Vince, you seem a little over treated with those levels. How do you determine what the level should be when you are reading your labs. Just picking a number to shoot for is not a valid method for determining the level you need.

Hi joemorgan. For me it’s usually what level I feel best at. Also I like to keep my hct in a good level and not have to donate blood. I know this sounds pretty simple, but why complicate things.

That's right @Vince. Clinical results, how the patient feels is the key to treatment. For me however, I can't really say I feel better on TRT, so I know how the OP feels. Another concern is when I have come off TRT (first injections then Clomiphene), my natural T came back at lower levels. Is it possible exogenous T kills off a bit of your own cellular over time permanently? However, at my age it could well be a race against time occurring anyway.

It can be a race against time. For most is it does seem that lower levels work best for most. Unless your goal is to just get a bigger physique.

First noticed, three-four years ago, slight loss of muscle mass and strength, particularly in legs, creeping loss of libido and erection quality. As Vince said, it is a race against time. But, I've been lucky to have been healthy all adult life, naturally muscular, never been overweight. I'll be 70 this year.
