    Each to there own I suppose. Seems like a lot of effort to tick a box when you have solved the problem for yourself in the past.

    A older friend of mine (52) who was open with his usage with his doctor was given a hand signal indicating upwards when he suggested self administering 400mg per week for mood etc.

    mate that's not a trt dose though is it, half that would be.
    also you went on trt then binned it off ?
    If you 'need' trt then that's for life or at least an old boy.
    not cruising.

    I've been down nhs trt route
    all good but a long process but for me was worth it, now id probably look into a private clinic but I know nothing about where to recommend but it is very doable, even online doc type scenario, send bloods get prescribed.

    Speak to Dave Crossland via his social media etc... he's done just this and Dave isn't going to struggle to source his own test really.

    I was very surprised how easily my gp prescribed me tostran gel. Went in with depression and anxiety symptoms along with no libido & motivation.

    What age are you bulk?

    When you’re running gear in your 20’s I think you’ll ultimately pay the price later in life. I don’t think anyone fully recovers back to their base line after cycling. Especially in your 30’s!

    I always said when I was younger I would go on trt when I’m 40, but now I’m 39 and been prescribed it it’s head fuck as I know that’s me for life and the chances of more kids is now very slim.

    Thanks mate, I have found an in-line service now and started the process to get checked and prescribed if relevant. From last few times with doc I don’t hold much hope on that route.

    I have gone private route as I want this sorting quickly due to feeling terrible.

    I’m 43 now so was in 30’s when cycling but yes I think you’re right. The price will be paid eventually.

    I’m fortunate that I don’t want more kids but that must be a concern if you do, although it’s not impossible with the right approach

    I had recent bloods test 12.4nmol and free test works out as 0.2% a month ago I was using maca powder and ginseng and it was 16.6nmol so defo works will start it again only thing is my prolactin went up to 697 lol.

    Also last year when it was about 10nmol I took a letrozole 1/4 tablet and the test come back 21nmol and 0.48 free test just seems like they need a boost lol. Took it like few days before blood test why would this come out so much higher?

    Clomid is the best option for fertility in males apparently (I did some reading when struggling to make our last child). The doctor also confirmed this but obviously couldn’t recommend.
