    Introduction + Some background information

    Background: 28 years old, decent shape. Workout 2-3 times a week with an ok diet.

    Sex drive has been pretty shit for the past couple of years.

    Got blood work drawn when I was 24 by my regular doctor and test was @ 400. Seemed low but heís a real old school doc so he said as long as itís in range Iím fine.

    Fast forward to now I got blood drawn again on my own & it came back at 350.

    Scheduled an appt with a health n wellness clinic near me to see a about getting a script for trt.

    No idea how this visit will go but from others experiences trying to get on trt it is a nightmare that usually ends in having to go from doc to doc.

    Iím hoping that since this is more of like an anti aging type clinic and that Iím paying out of pocket it will be easier.

    Iím out of Birmingham, Alabama so plenty of doctors in the area but Iíd rather just be one and done.

    Iíll be bringing in the lab work I got done on my own a few weeks ago to the appt. Not sure if theyíll use it or want to draw their own.

    Any tips, questions or a heads up on what to expect when I get in there?
