Peak - thanks for that, my blood was drawn at approx 12pm. It was supposed to be 11:15, but there was a lot of hold ups in the surgery. Actually that's made me think - i was getting a bit stressed due to this, and i wasn't exactly looking forward to the actual blood draw either (i know, pussy!). Having read that things like being in the company of a hot woman, or looking at porn, and even watching your favorite team win a game can raise your test level (and i'm guessing this is an instant reaction) - could sitting in a long queue, 45min past your appointment getting frustrated and slightly anxious about having a needle shoved in you have the opposite effect? Just a thought..
@399 - I've been a supplement junkie for years, and at 41 i'm starting to wonder (regardless of studies) if they do anything. But, i take cod liver oil, extra vit d3, magnesium citrate, zinc citrate, vit c, low dose b complex, low dose sublingual dhea, creatine, brazil nuts (for selenium). Also on occasion use d aspartic acid, taurine ('studies' show it raises test, at least in rats), gingko, muccuna pruriens, deprenyl, low dose melatonin. And so on. Maybe my house would look better if i'd saved the money over the years. All this by the way is why i was expecting a mid to maybe high testosterone score. I wanted to know out of interest! I did think my thyroid might come back low though (it didn't). As to coping well with low test, i think it's more a case of if it's always been low(ish), then you wouldn't know how much better it would feel with higher levels.
