As some of you may recall I choose the TRT path. I am in my 40’s now and I have had my kids so I really didn’t care about the fertility aspect. If you’re young you may want to consider alternatives. I think the main issue is getting your hormonal profile sorted and keeping it their long-term to get the best results. It appears that I have found my personal sweet spot. For me, this is 50mg of Testosterone Cyp. every three to four days no AI required. The other things I use are OTC stuff that most doctors would likely recommend for people my age. Q10, choline inositol, turmeric, fish oil and so on. I sort all this into a pillbox and take it daily. I feel this helps with compliance. I work out six days per week and try to keep my body fat levels as low as I can. At the moment I am on the high side at 20% but that’s coming down rather quickly and I expect to be at or below 15% within the next 60 days.
If you told me I would feel this good in 2018 back in 2014 I would have assumed you were just not understanding how totally fucked I was. Many of us in the heat of this battle often get the feeling that we are somehow more fucked then everyone else especially anyone that has something positive to say. This experience has left an indelible mark on my psyche as I am sure it has all of you as well. This was a journey and I would never assume what worked for me is necessarily a turnkey solution for others. When I was at my worst I put a lot of my negativity onto this site. I was looking for hope but couldn’t see it through the filter of Propecia induced depression/anxiety. I decided to stop back by and post my most recent blood work to illustrate that this is possible and for the skeptics, the blood work may not prove anything but when you feel good and the blood work matches… Well, what can you say? Good luck to you all. It is possible to escape this.
