I've been on TRT well over six years and just can't seem to ever get it right. 80mg per week cypionate-no libido but feel ok, 100mg per week-feel better but only have libido last 2-3 days, 120mg per week- strong libido first 2-3 days WTF. I have elevated SHBG-47 checked numerous times. E2 never high 22-24pg/ml sensitive test.
Test levels at 7 days prior to injection: 80mg-775ng, 100mg-980ng, 120mg-1037ng.
Weird thing is I have checked peak levels with all these dosages and it is only 125-150ng difference, its like it just plateaus.
Thyroid, cortisol, prolactin, and all other levels are optimal, all checked numerous times as well.
Started 200iu HCG 3 times weekly a couple weeks back with 100mg cypionate, but really haven't noticed much of a difference.
I've tried splitting the weekly dose a couple times in the past, but feel worse yet.
I have contemplated trying topical and have a scrip, but just hesitant to try it.
At the 120mg dose my hematocrit is at 48 which kinda worries me.
Cholesterol total is 214 but has always been above 200 no matter what I eat, HDL was 58 at last check.
I'm not overweight, don't smoke, very active, eat healthy 95% of the time, rarely drink, absolutely no other health problems.
I tried quitting recently with clomid, but did not have success with elevating LH.
I have had pituitary scan, which was normal.
DHT is always in upper third of range as well.
I am utterly, completely lost, I admit it!
