    What to do?

    So I've been reading throughought the forum and have found a lot of info. So I've got my labs back wich I have posted but no response about what to do. I have low T and feel all the simptoms for sure. So I now have waisted time and money on a clinic that agreed my levels are low but won't treat me. After getting my money they past me on to an endo. Got an appt next Monday. Ive also got connected with a TRT that wants $225 a month for treatment. It includes all gear shipped to me and once a year office visits with blood work every six months. Is that good? Would an endo be better or cheaper? TRT wants to put me on test c an anti estrogen hcg and b12 constantly. No cycles. Are cycles better? Ive also found what seems to be reliable good sources from overseas distributors.
    I no source discution is prohibited but these sources were found through these forums and had a lot of good reviews. Still have doubts about going that rout though. I guess all online sources would all just be a gamble if you don't know personally someone who has used them. Anyway any advise on what to do at this point would be appreciated.

    Actually, you did get a response from BB on your blood work and he's correct. The things I did not see in the BW were prolactin, cortisol and LH/FSH which are all important in seeing what may be suppressing you.

    Q have you considered a regular doctor and not a clinic? Many clinic's will find a reason to put you on TRT as that's how they survive. They don't necessarily look to hard for the cause of the low T.

    How do you know this is good source? You don't think they have other names giving good reviews for them? I can't bring myself to order o nline. Even with all these reviews! Just think it's crazy to put something in my body ,that I got from someone I don't know

    You never know if your source is good, until you order, and every order is a gamble. A good source can go bad between oders. If you want to run anything higher than trt doses, you will eventually have to take the risk. Some sources sell pharm grade or vet grade products.

    I went with a private clinic and it went well but I planned on using it temporarily until I found an endo that would agree to treat me with testosterone and hCG . I found many doctors that were more than willing to prescribe testosterone given my low levels but none of them would write a script for hCG or for an AI when I was still struggling with estrogen issues.

    I have had a much better experience with an endor than with the clinic. Yes, the clinic did all of the relevant BW and shipped me all of the supplies and that helped me get dialed in but having an endo that's willing to work with you on things is fantastic and cheaper. I've formed a good relationship with my endo and he has been willing to prescribe me relevant medications, including Clomid should I choose to go off of TRT for whatever reason. However, it took me awhile to form that relationship with him and I had to be very honest with him about why my HTPA axis is so messed up. I told him upfront about my pro-hormone and steroid usage when I was younger but also explained that I wasn't a drug seeker and that I just wanted to feel better. He was thankful that I was honest because he would have known if I was lying given that my LH levels were so low... Your testes don't just decide to shut down randomly..

    So, again, I'd work on finding a good endo or urologist and work from there. It'll save you time and money.

    I am very frustrated at this point. Whent to and endo today and he wouldn't work with me.. He was to scared to proscribe me testosterone do to what he said are low but in range levels. I told him I've felt all the signs of low T one being depressed. He then suggested I seek a cyciatrist and have him proscribe me antidepressants!! I've told him I've been down that road before and it didn't with well for me. So he screwed me out of $180!! He also said if he was to proscribe to me it would only be testosterone and nothing else. No antiestro. Does that make sence? So know I'm in $300 dealing with two places and no treatment. I can't keep going to endos pay out of pocket and have them deney me treatment. Was hoping this endo would work since it's the most cost effective way of treatment. I know how a free consultation with a TRT clinic which is not very affordable at all. They want $220 a month! But will send everything to me. But they want to put me on test, hcg b12 and an antiestro. Just can't see being able to afford that for the rest of my life! I just want to feel better and everything I've heard about TRT is what will do it. So frustrating!
