Sure, I’ll do that.
Don’t be scared. Just get on it. I was scared too. Wasted 5 years trying herbal BS which doesn’t work. Check the research papers. Propecia methylated our mitochondrial DNA in brain cells which caused a cascade of changes in receptor and neurotransmitter/steroid expression. Which causes other downstream changes etc etc.
My natural production is low after Propecia. Thats common for most guys. No, Testosterone doesn’t shrivel the balls. Mine are about 20% smaller, cosmetically. If I chose to go off Testosterone, my balls would still work at post-propecia levels (Im score about a 9-12 T level on a 7-37 range). So I’d go back to my post propecia baseline of about 9-12 T level.
Yes TRT is lifelong. No, I will never go off. Even if my dick never works again and this attempt at TRT fails for whatever reason, I’ll stay on TRT because my testosterone is low and will always be low. I need Testosterone to sleep. Propecia completely fucked up my sleep and Im a super light sleeper now. So without Testosterone, I wake up 15-20 times a night. On Testosterone, I wake up 5-7 times a night. For sleep alone, I’ll always be on Testosterone.
No, I don’t cycle Testosterone. Im always on. My Doc had prescribed me HCG in addition to Testosterone, but its way too much Estrogen. Im in a group with offline guys who have PFS. HCG plus Testosterone generally creates too much estrogen. PFS guys are super estrogen sensitive.
If you want, you can take HCG alone. Or T alone. But T is generally better. I would get over the phobia of taking Testosterone Depot. You dont want to waste anymore time.
Yes, my Doc prescribed me ADEX, but I only use it for bridging from one dose to another (for example, from 60mg x 4 days, to 50mg every 3 days…) or when I miss a shot. Then my estrogen goes out of whack and I get serious hot flashes. Like soak the bed sheets , soak my clothes hot flashes. The ADEX is only use temporarily.
Too low estrogen causes premature ejaculation and kills libido. Too high estrogen kills the dick, as well. Also, any type of estrogen flucuation will kill ur dick as well. This is what my group has noticed.
This is why shot time, spacing, dosage, has to be exact. Otherwise, estrogen gets out of whack quick and kills the dick and libido.
Get a doctor, get a script, and get on T depot. You’ve wasted enough time. My GP wanted to put me on Test depot at 35 but I felt exactly as you did. Too scared. Scared it was for life. Dude, its for life.
Check the studies. Our mitochondrial DNA has been methylated. The odd guy gets better by a fecal transplant, or going to bed at 6pm every day, or drinking 5 gallons of beat juice a week. But these recovery stories simply arent replicated well at all. Else it would be all over the boards. Some guys simply just recover. Many don’t.
Also Google studies on Low Testosterone and early all-cause mortality. Men who have Low Testosterone die earlier then men with normal and higher levels of Testosterone. Scientists dont know why, but large meta-analysis studies have shown this. Ill tell you why. How do you feel right now? How did I feel when I was waking up 20 times a night? How is ur zest and zeal for life? In the shitter right. That’s why men die with low testosterone. Because life is shit and they feel like shit and it simply grinds them down over time. Life becomes a drag. Im sure Low T has major biological implications over time as well.
