I wouldn't mind trying it, and probably should have asked the endo about it. But based on how little she seems to know about the general subject I doubt I'd have much luck there. So regardless it would mean finding another doctor or HRT clinic.

Fertility docs - and that includes some urologists - will know about it.  In fact, this might be a way to find out some of the more savvy docs.  Just ask your endo if she knows any male fertility specialists?

That could be worth a try. I wonder if the pharmacist approach would work--except that one might have to ask about doctors prescribing both cypionate and hCH/Clomid, which could be problematic. Of course if things go well with the cypionate alone I might lose motivation to do more.

Isn't it a common suggestion in these circles to ask your local pharmacist which doctors are prescribing testosterone, as a means to locating physicians with possible HRT knowledge?
