Hello all, first post here. This is a fun one btw Well as the title says 22 years old with low test
. First I should say I have used prohormones in the past. I use to bodybuild before several unhealthy years in college of partying. I had developed an addiction to opiate painkillers for two years during college. I just celebrated a year clean from drugs and alcohol in January. Upon sobering up I got back into bodybuilding and very dedicated to my fitness. I had dramatically changed my body composition from 5'8 235 fat to 190 12-15% body fat.
I wanted to make up for lost time so I decided to use a pro hormone called hdrol. First cycle went great and felt great afterwords I followed up with 4 weeks pct of nolvadex.being that I had little suppression I decided to give it another go I then jumped into another one a few months after called ultradrol. This one caused all the issues for me. I was extremely shut down after cycle do I decided to get bloodwork. First blood test was 2 months after cycle. My test was at 268 LH-3.3 FSH-2.0 estradiol 17.7.
I then scheduled an endocrinologist appt and started dosing nolvadex at 20/20/10/10 along with d-aspartic acid and zma I also changed my diet, upped my intake of fats and overall calories and did a lot of compound heavy lifts. Received more bloodwork from my endo which was a month later on the last week of the nolvadex. My bloodwork was test-519ng/dl free test 10.2, prolactin 10.2, FSH 3.7, LH 6.9. I was happy with the results despite not feeling fully recovered. Fast forward three mOnths later. I had a follow up with my endo. In the mean time I felt strong in the gym but could get rid of the last ten pounds of fat despite how hard I hit cardio or ate clean. My libido was also effed but was better than before so I figured I was still cruising in the 500 for test. Well anyway my bloodwork was terrible. LH-2.4, FSh-1.6( 1 tick from being flagged low) test 331 ng/dl and prolactin 13.8. So upon this result my endo gave me an order for more blood in 1 month. I'm inpatient and feeling symptoms. I have little sex drive, testicles are smaller, and I can't seem to burn any of this bodyfat I understand trt at my age is controversial. Do you guys think I caused permanent damage from
the ph cycles? Seems like the pituitary isn't pumpin out LH and FSH. The fact that I was at 519 on the nolva and them dropped down scares me. What are your thoughts opinions? Also for after my bloodwork at 519 i didnt use any prohormones or hormonal products. Supplements I were taking was whey protein, creatine, fish oil and a multi v. All my drawings were at 8-9am. Thank you in advance.
