For a 31 year old male that is experiencing symptoms of low testosterone, including low libideo, poor performance and depression you most definitely have low testosterone. Especially when combined with your LH and FSH reading which are on the low end. Normally LH and FSH would be elevated when T is low because those hormones should be trying to act to raise your T levels.
The fact your LH and FSH are low, combined with low T, points to a pituitary origin. Something is preventing your pituitary from producing proper LH and FSH levels in response to the low T. Assuming you have been checked for a possible tumor (tests for prolactin and thyroid are normal), it is most likely that you have what is called idiopathic hypopituitarism. If so the only path to normal function is to replace the hormones that are low.
Obviously your doctor knows little about this subject or is afraid to pursue it. I suggest you seek out a doctor who specializes in low T problems. This could start with a fertility endocrinolgoist, since I assume your sperm count is either low or zero - have you ever had it checked? Pehaps tell your GP you and your gf are trying to conceive and suspect your sperm count is low - you want a sperm count and a prolactin and thyroid test; just to be sure things are normal (wink).
