Update: visit to the urologist for low libido and ED...T shot given

He agreed that my T is low for my age. When asked he said it's around 500-600 for most people my age. However, T is not a good measure of overall sexual function. He said lots of other hormones are in play, such as DHEA and some other stuff I can't remember.

He gave me 2 shots of T cypionate 200mg, one given today and the other to be given in 2 weeks. Also before that he had my blood drawn to get some base refereces. Coming back in 3 weeks.

He claimed that T has nothing to do with morning erections. I've heard and read contradicting opinions though, like people taking T shots/cream saying how their morning erections went from nothing to rock hard.

I'm a little worried about my testicles. Some posters, as well as some sites, said exogenous T would make the pituitary produce less LH and thus shut down testicles? I didn't ask and he didn't mention that at all.

It will shut them down. You can see how the T shots work for you and if its working you can add HCG later. If this doctor wont do the HCG then find another if you want to keep your testicles working. You can give it to yourself using an insulin syringe and its pretty painless.

I'll keep that in mind. How soon will the T start working?

I have never taken injections but I would think it should work pretty quick. I know one guy who claims he felt the diff in a few hours. Otherwise I have heard it can take up to a month of constantly stimulating the cells with enough testosterone for them to respond.

If you need to find a better doctor, they best type for TRT is an anit-aging specialist. Even most Endos are useless in this area.

I've read that HCG is expensive, and you have to inject it 2-3 times a week? It'd be such a hassle. Any ideas?

Many insurance companies will pay for it. Mine will if you buy it thru their mail order pharmacy, in fact I pay nothing for it, no copay. If you have to pay cash a 10,000 unit vial is about $40. This should last at least a month if not more like 6 weeks depending on dosage. You may consider it a hassle versus pills but we're talking about your sex life and your fertility so you have to decide if that important enough to put up with the hassle.

Also, you can give yourself the injections with a very fine insulin needle subQ. It is relatively painless and easy to do for yourself in the mid thigh area.
