Sorry if I'm bringing up an old thread, but I believe this is EXACTLY why I'm having to go on TRT.
I did several cycles before, all the same level of test, one with Nolva
only and a few with Nolva
. I always bounced back within a few months, and had the bloodwork to prove it.
On my last cycle about a year and a half ago I decided to try HCG
using SWALES protocol of a bit throughout the cycle instead of all at the end.
Long story short, it's 1.5 years later and my balls are fine, but my pituitary isn't making enough LH and FSH to tell them to produce enough testosterone
. So I have secondary hypogonadism at the age of 33 and it seems to be irriversible.
I tried ZMA, Tribulus, lots of full body workouts... I just can't bounce back from this and blood test
after blood test
all say the same thing > Low FSH, low LH, low free test
and low syrum test
It's just something to think about. I know lots of people swear by HCG, but I wish I would have just kept it simple and stuck with Nolva as-needed and let my body do the work of returning to homeostasis.
