Thanks for your reply. In true , honesty , taking Clomid is far as I would be willing to go. (I am glad to hear than worked for you.) Obviously , we still have to weight up the potential risks and benefits.Maximizing testosterone is not going to achieve a state of perpetual pleasure. Anyone on TRT can vouch for that. It isn't about pleasure, it is about health and wellbeing.
Self control is the command regardless of testosterone level or sexual deprivation. It's just better to be married and have sex. 1 Corinthians 7.
I like your post. Just know that TRT will more than likely drop your sperm count to zero by dropping your FSH (Follicle Stimulating Hormone) to zero as well. Yes, you can add HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) to help with intratesticular testosterone production but at 39, unlike somone in their 20s, there is a better than not chance you will become infertile.
You could just take fertility doses of HCG which will increase your testosterone significantly, but you'll have to take an aromotase inhibitor most likely.
You could also take the very inexpensive Clomid which will boost your T even more than HCG. When I was trying to give my wife a baby, (Clomid is a fertility med too), it got my testosterone level to 1000 ng/dl and I was in my 50s, so that works. Be warned here that it could cause extremely high levels of SHBG (Sex Hormone Binding Globulin) and make your free T levels at the bottom of the range.
