Trt … thoughts for those currently on – page 2 – talk about marriage anoxic brain injury pathophysiology

There are alternatives. Clomid is a popular one. While it is technically a SERM, it makes a lot of men feel estrogenic and like complete crap. HCG monotherapy does the same for many. Both are alternate routes to fooling the body into producing more testosterone. nanoxia deep silence 4 claw I prefer to just inject the real thing.

Most GP’s and even endocrinologists are scared to give out TRT (not to mention completely ignorant). "You’re not dying… why do this?" Some will even laugh in your face for trying to be a fake manly man. Meanwhile, they hand out hormone-altering, potentially dangerous birth control like it’s candy. But I digress…Thanks. This is very helpful. The only concern in general would be my lipids which have always been off (even as a kid).


Blood pressure has always been spot on (120/80) as all other markers. Not too concerned about needles, my W is a nurse and would have no issues administering. When I have mentioned to my GP the last two annual physicals some of the things I was experiencing, his answer was nothing more than "Well, that is stress and life". Not saying he had to suggest any course of treatment, but logically you would like to think he would have recommended getting full bloodwork done just to see if there were any abnormalities.

I have no experience with TRT, but diet and exercise, plus plenty of sleep should do the trick. I know you have a young family, but but… also, I’m not sure why you want a higher libido when your wife is taking ADs and has a much lower libido… you should be grateful for your diminished libido…

At one point, when I got depressed because of my wife’s lack if libido (due to the ADs), I started taking ADs myself. They lowered my libido too, to the point I wasn’t really that bothered about sex. But I felt like a zombie, so I stopped them… and I got really horny again, and depressed again, and the cycle continued… Diet, exercise and sleep are not the issue really. anxiety disorder dsm 5 definition Well, I am sure there are some improvements I could make to my diet, but nothing really drastic would be needed (i rarely eat fruits, don’t eat vegetables and don’t eat seafood, those are things that will never change lol). as far as exercise, I have always been very active. If anything, I thought I might have been pushing myself too hard (this has been known to have a negative effect on T levels), but even backing off this past year hasn’t made a difference. Sleep, I typically get 6-7 hours during the week and then usually 8 hours on the weekend. I actually used to get a lot less sleep years ago (when my libido was much higher!).

The whole libido thing though, that is undoubtedly part of my concern. Keep in mind though, when asking about TRT, I am looking at it for some of the other benefits (such as @ dadstartingover stated). anoxi Over the past few years I have noticed a fairly significant dropoff in performance (athletic), recovery, motivation. Although I am not overweight, I am having a much more difficult time maintaining my weight, etc… That being said, is all this a fair tradeoff for going back to being frustrated constantly with an increased libido, quite possibly not. I figure at a minimum, I can get bloodwork done and then decide (depending on the results) if I should take any action or just bask in the glory of a diminished sex drive lol

I find that I’m a lot less energetic with age and with the odd muscular ailment. The libido thing is very tricky. Only you can decide. hypoxic ischemic encephalopathy radiographics Personally, I would not want an increased libido, but at least you get sex regularly. It’s been 10 months for me and, as far as I know, I won’t have sex with my wife ever again. Which is a bit sad. But it’s her decision.

With the pharmacokinetic half-life of testosterone cypionate, 2x/wk dosing is proper to keep levels steady in the desired range. NOT biweekly or monthly or some other idiotic interval, which will have your levels all over the damn shop and you feeling horrible and unmoored. 100 mg/wk is a standard dose, so 50mg (typically 250uL, or 25 insulin syringe "units" at standard 200mg/mL strength) twice a week.

There’s no need to stick yourself in a major muscle with a large-bore needle, either. I have used painless 1/2" 31g insulin needles going into subcutaneous fat (flank or buttock) for over 6 years now with zero issues. It’s a fat-soluble hormone, and it comes dissolved in oil. Pellets are implanted in subQ fat, and any topical cream traverses it as well. There are a couple of successful pilot studies on this administration method, if you care about such things. But the official line will always be "IM injection only"

You do need to monitor estradiol (E2), which T aromatizes into. anoxic encephalopathy pathophysiology Get your own labs online if your MD won’t play ball…a good E2 number is around 20-30 (NOT zero). Take arimidex (AKA anastrozole–an aromatase inhibitor) at something like 0.25mg per week to keep the conversion at bay. Failure to do this can lead to gynecomastia (manboobs).

Also, you may want hCG co-injections (human chorionic gonadotropin) which will mimic pituitary FSH/LH action to keep your balls working and producing their own T–absent this they shut down and atrophy, because exogenous T turns off the pituitary axis. Typical hCG dose is ~250 IU 2x/wk subQ via same insulin needles; use goodrx coupons to get it more cheaply.

Finally, get used to donating blood, and make sure you don’t ever supplement iron (check your multivitamin). TRT often causes polycythemia (overproduction of red blood cells). Thick blood is a clotting and stroke hazard, so stay on top of it. Double-red (apheresis) is a good way to get Hb down quick. Don’t rush to advertise your TRT regimen; some blood banks get moralistic about self-interested donations, even though they are win-win.
