Anyway, I started using Clomid in various doses in 2016 when I started to have low T problems. When I started using it, it was with Anastrazole and DIM, and my T shot up to 900 ng/dL from around 300. I felt really good, libido was awesome, energy good, really had no well-being negatives, except that I noticed that my weight was climbing up really fast. It was noticeable because my clothes stopped fitting and I had to buy new ones.
Luckily, I had a DEXA scan from before starting Clomid. In just 10 months, I had gained 25 lbs. About 8 lb were muscle and the rest fat. This is with minimal change in diet and low to moderate exercise, which was the same as before. After speaking with my doctor, we decided to try removing the anastrazole and DIM, and sticking with 12.5mg Clomid ED.
It's been almost 2 years since that change and I still have been gaining weight. I kept track via DEXA scans. From before I started Clomid to now, I have gained 50 lbs! 50 lbs! Now, my diet recently has not been good and I have only been at the gym 4-5 times a month, but these kinds of numbers are just insane. I tried for 2 years now to get my weight down but it has been an uphill battle. Like I said, my diet for the past year has not been great, but it also has not been very bad either. This sort of weight gain is outrageous and in my opinion very unlikely due to changes in behavior alone.
I don't want to blame Clomid completely, but I would think that a successful T replacement protocol would help on the body composition side as well, and not make things worse. I am not sure what to do now. Part of me wants to try injections. Has anyone else gone through the same thing with Clomid? It seemed like others had experienced similar things. Secondly, what do you think I should do regarding my protocol?
Here is a summary of all of my DEXA scans over the last 2 years: https://imgur.com/a/UpvcMGC
