Hello,I am 31 male and i was a steroid user for most of my 20's. I have recently got married and have made it my goal to stay off the "juice". I have not been feeling well suffering from light headedness, extreme fatigue and night sweats. I felt my testosterone level was low so i had blood work done.(Off Steroids now for 8 months)My Level was 22. Normal range for my age is 250 to 750. The endocrinologist prescribed me 2000UI 3X a week of HCG. I am wondering if anyone knows if this will work in restoring my levels? Also had my sperm count taken and it is fine at 40 Million per CC. Will the HCG lower my sperm count since we are trying to conceive? How long will it take for HCG to restore natural levels? Finally will i be able to ween off HCG and maintain a natural level? thank you for listening, any responses would be appreciated

I had a pituitary tumor (removed in '07) and prior to me finding out about it, this is how mine was diagnosed; crazy low test and very high prolactin. I'm not trying to scare you or tell you that may be the cause, I've been on 350mg test cyp a week since and when I miss doses, that's exactly how I feel. My levels are in the 20's without treatment. I've seen a Dr about fertility and was told it would take a year or so of HCG to bring my natural levels up enough to have a kid. You're on the right treatment if you're wanting to get preg., once you succeed, look into hormone replacement. If your level is that low, you need it afterwards

Happy to say we are 6mo pregnant now. Taking test again after as the HCG is not doing the trick. I will haven't Gland checked out.

My problem was keeping my testonerone levels up off of HCG and getting pregnant
