I'm working on it now. I'm going to speak to my doc about switching to HCG today and discuss rising estradiol. Are your symptoms basically unchanged for the most part or is there any natural recovery going on?

And nitric oxide and probably dopamine - so, yes, it's a pretty good indicator for us guys of general health.  So, yes, something obviously changed negatively - I agree.

Congrats on getting some kind of treatment going.  Let us know how it works for you.  Use the search on the top and you can see there are a wide variety of reactions to Clomid.

whats ur personal opinion? he said if clomid doesnt work we can do testosterone undacanoate, 4 injections annually but i will be sterile, and it has to be discussed if it comes up.

You're kind of in the same place I was in a couple of months ago. I'm taking Clomid and have had some increase in T, but not as much, and the doctor upped my dosage, since he said I was initially on a relatively low dose and sometimes it takes longer to see results. I am switching to HCG shortly as there is better symptomatic benefit from everyone I talk to plus I understand a number of other benefits. Additionally, I had a sperm analysis done before starting treatment. The "4 injections annually" comment made by the doctor made me wonder about his opinion on spikes and troughs. The cutting edge treatment from people I talk to is frequent small self-administered injections so that there are no spikes/troughs (ie. highs/lows) but rather a more consistent feeling. Thus, it better mirrors the body's own production of T. Plus, HCG can be cycled in every other day to preserve fertility/testes. Did the doctor talk about HCG at all...be it as a stand alone treatment or combined with T? Also, I would be curious about a semen analysis as well. I've had 2 of them done just to see my baseline starting point before treatment and that was helpful to know. However, no matter what, Clomid is helpful on that front in improving sperm characteristics.

One thing you hear about Clomid is that it just loses effectiveness after a few months.  Makes me wonder if that's why he had to up the dosage?
