Background: 39 year old bodybuilder. I've been on HRT taking androgel, hcg, and arimidex for the past year and a half during which I've done a low dose cycle of Test Enth and EQ. Before then, I have been off and on for 2.5 years. Present: I have just stopped AndroGel a week ago today. I have also done a low dose of test weekly in addition to AndroGel at 200mg.. My last shot of Test Enth was 2.5 weeks ago on June 24th. I have not stopped my dosage of HCG however, and that's 300iu's every third day as part of my HRT regimen. I have stopped Arimidex though. Recovery Protocol (Inspired by Dr. Mike Scally): 2500 iu HCG EOD for 8 shots (15 days total) 20mg of nolvadex for 45 days 50mg of clomid taken twice daily 12hours apart for a total of 30 days Current feeling: I would say that my testosterone levels have started to drop low.. I have no libido and no AM wood. Although I am not depressed, I can't say that I'm feeling too happy. I am looking forward to successfully recovering my HPTA but the worry about what's coming up is making me feel kind of down and bit scared. I know that I have been pretty shut down for a long time now. Day one: This morning I have taken 50mg of Clomid. I am using some liquid research kind and hoping that it's quality stuff. The company has been around for years. I have Nolvadex coming within three days. However, I do have about two doses to hold me over. Last night I took 300iu's of HCG as I was doing during my HRT. My nuts are not in bad shape IMO due to the regular HCG intake. I recall a long ago before HCG, they were too small and soft. I am optimistic about them doing the job soon. I will be bumping HCG to 2500 starting tomorrow. Or I may do 2000iu's tonight.
