    Semen Analysis Results

    I was on 70mg test cyp and 750 IU hCG twice a week when I took these. I'm planning on upping hCG to 1000 IU, probably decreasing testosterone, and adding 125 IU FSH twice a week. I will redo my semen analysis in 4 months. Anyone have any suggestions? Should I alter any of those doses or...

    Struggling to get pregnant

About a year and half ago, we were able to get pregnant once my doctor added FSH to my current regimen of Test. However, we had a miscarriage. Unfortunately, FSH is no longer able to be compounded...

    Exogenous r-FSH & HPTA

    Would adding exogenous r-FSH shut down the HPTA? I have searched for this question in the forums and online. Have not found much, but I do not think that it would. My understanding is that hcg does. My LH is in a good spot and I was thinking of perhaps adding some FSH alone.

    fsh - info and why so expensive

    I've only started researching fsh so probably a bit cheeky to ask without making more effort. Fertility aside, why is it beneficial? Effect of TRT vs hCG/FSH on upstream hormone pathways.

    Are there any problems with having zero gonadotrophin?

    I've been on TRT for 6 years now and I have no complaints. It's been wonderful for me. I'm on 4 pumps of Androgel daily with 500iu's of HCG every other day. I remember reading, a long time ago, that HCG is recommended with TRT and one of the reasons is that it'll activate LH receptors across...

    HMG and FSH prices??

    I’m having such a hard time getting a good idea of pricing on these two meds. Empower is telling me they need to see my prescription before they give me a price quote. My Dr is willing to write a prescription for either but I’d like to know pricing before I decide. Anyone? And for that matter...

    Has anyone tried adding FSH to their protocol?

    I've seen a couple of short lived threads on the topic, but nothing noteworthy or recent. I'm thinking of adding a low dose of FSH (perhaps 35iu per week to start) to my protocol (30mg Test Cyp EOD, 250iu EOD) to see how it may effect other areas of wellbeing and function aside from just...

    Do I Have Primary or Secondary Hypogonadism?

    Pre-TRT, my FSH was 3.9 in a range of 1.5-12.4 (mIU/ml) from Lab Corp. LH wasn't tested, but TSH was 2.81 with range .450-4.500. Total T was 292 out of 348-1197. Because my FSH was on the lower range, does that mean I am secondary? I was never told anything by the doctor, who was horrible...

    Checking LH and FSH straight away ?

    After pretty much a decade of losing time with antidepressants and antipsychotics, I am now approaching my new doctor with the concept of low T. She is willing to test my total and free testosterone, but she says the rest isn't important for now. Is that true ? Is there not a possibility that...

    Questions regarding low LH, FSH, FT

    My LH is low at: 0.3 IU/L (1.70 = 8.60) As is my FSH at: 0.3 IU/L (1.50 - 12.40). What is the best method of raising? More HCG? More testosterone? Or a combination of both? Also my FT is low at 0.4 nmol/L (0.30 - 1.00). Again, what is the best method of raising? More HCG? More testosterone...
