I have a question about testosterone test. Am I talking to a
Hi, I'm a 36 year old male. Have been having issues with ED, fatigue, irritability, and urinary urgency. Also have just felt like my nether regions are lacking in nutrition, penis feels abnormally limp and dead a lot, and have trouble maintaining erections during sex. Also leaking urine after I piss and have to piss without warning. Have had minor gynecomastia under one nipple since puberty. Went to urologist and got my levels tested, testosterone was 360, and free test 13.5. He said might be good to try clomiphene in order to raise T levels, and I was wondering- would one have to be on it for life? Seems like the side effect profile is not nonexistent, I don't want to go on TRT, and seems dicey to mess with hormones for too long. Can the climid permanently switch my T levels to normal? What is the goal? Have a hard time getting an answer from my doc. Also is it possible to get T levels to normal functional level through more exercise etc? I could definitely stand to exercise more, though I am not fat (I was 170 at my thinnest at 25 yrs old and was very fit, am now 185). Also my blood pressure has been high at 146ish. I eat pretty healthily. Trying to find best way forward? Thoughts? Cialis has helped ED, but gives me a lot of testicle pain (whats that about?), and also erased the urinary symptoms, but I figure its not good to be on that forever either, but instead treat the root causes.
