    As CarrotTop said, keep an eye on your levels and adjust accordingly. You're responding well to clomid, you might be able to get away with 12.5mg twice a week - always less is more with clomid.
    How's the wellbutrin helping with your mood/stress level?  If you weren't on that i'd suggest rotating a few effective mood boosters - phenibut, twice a week, kratom three times a week, and maybe tianeptine the other two days a week.  They all kick stress in the ass and boost mood which would probably help with your libido woes.

    Good news mate.  Stay on the lower dose, retest in another 4 weeks, if comes back any higher then I would drop dose again, to maybe 2/3 times a week

    When you're unhappy, you won't recover. Be careful that you don't slide into depression. Maybe you're already there? 
    Depression is not just psychological. If you are unhappy for a long period of time (sounds like you are), then the serotonin levels in your brain are affected. This impacts your mood. So you go from psychological unhappiness to physical symptoms. As hard as it is, you need to know that there is light at the end of the tunnel. You may not always see it because the treacherous thing about depression is that you don't always realise you're in that dark place until it's too late. Death in the family have a similar effect, heart break, you name it. 
    @TERBO is spot on, you must work on yourself, don't allow yourself to waste away. Avoid hormones for the moment, they will only imbalance your own hormone system. Take the time and look after yourself. Including your meals. Reduce them if you can't eat but don't skip meals and make sure you get all essential nutrients. 
    Work on your confidence as well. Go on Tinder, show of your body there will be plenty of birds that will react to you. You don't have to take it anywhere but the confidence boost will do you good.
    BTW: Does viagra work for you?

    Best advice mate is to put yourself first, it's difficult but you need to move on which means no contact, stalking etc as it's just going to hurt you more.
    The hard truth is forget what she said, it was meant at the time but means nothing now, and in your current state of mind your issue isn't going to get any better.
    Messing about with hormones, taking xanax, eating poorly etc is going to make you feel worse, so I would drop everything except the Wellbutrin and concentrate on you.

    Like I said above, stay on the Wellbutrin 
    and if you’re going to continue the clomid, then you want to use the lowest dose possible imo
    then retest in 4-6 weeks

    Your gonna get flamed on here now buddy with them levels, yes they are within range but I sympathise with your frustrations.
    You will probably be told there’s nothing wrong with your levels and it’s all psychological.
    I hope you do get some improvements soon, I’ve recently just started nhs prescribed trt at 1g nebido every 12 weeks, my uncle has self prescribed his own trt for the past 4 years with 125mg per week test enanthate and feels great, I would listen to the professionals though if I’m honest dude, they do know their stuff 9 times out of 10.
    Good luck.

    That's a much better AD to use and clomid seems to be going well... once things start working the mental issues should reside.
    Agree on the xanax, not necessary.

    he prescribed me 'wellbutrin' instead of prosac and said it is the only ssri without sexual side effects. he also prescribed me 'xanax ' as he thinks I'm very anxious, but I decided not to take it for now as I read it can worsen ED. 
    So far been about 10 days on clomid and couple of days on wellbutrin, I'm noticing regular nocturnal erections and yesterday I even had one awkward in the gym, only by speaking with some girl whos not even much attractive.
    Might be mental but my low testo still scares me like hell. Trying not to think about it and trt

    I really don't see why you need anti depressants mate, they will end up making you feel worse.
    99% of all anti depressants affect me 'sexually' in one way or another, hopefully you'll be different.

    Good idea mate, i think that's your best first option (at least it'll show if your nuts can produce more).  I'd stay away from the proviron you mentioned though - i threw that in the mix for several months back in i think 2017.  For me, it made me feel great - for a while. I wasn't getting bloodwork, but after a few months i noticed my joints (knees mostly) were literally locking up. Never suspected proviron, as i'd read it was non supressive. But it is - at the gonadal level. I got bloods taken, LH was over 8 (clomid still working), but test was tanked. At least what i'd consider tanked for a LH of 8, TT came back 11.7nmol/l.  I stopped proviron, stopped clomid, LH averages 2.5 without clomid, TT fluctuates between 6 and 9nmol/l.  For reference, when i first went on clomid 12.5mg eod, TT through an nhs blood test was 21nmol/l.  The moral of my story is, don't mess around with proviron, keep clomid dosages low, and keep an eye on your bloods (clomid may need to be cycled for best effect long term).

    Probably because you don’t have low testosterone. Mine was lower than that I didn’t have ed. Your problems probably lie elsewhere.

    well theres a paper from BSSM ( I think ) which states people with a total level of 12, should be considered for a trial of TRT if they have symptoms

    You say you’re on bromo for prolactin? Or is it caber? What doses?
    What were your prolactin levels prior to that?
    I kind of agree with the principles at adding an ai like the guys have already suggested, it’s a good theory and worse thing can happen is it doesn’t work for you. 
    You will obviously have to go by feel, blood work may tell you it’s working a treat, but your symptoms still persist, then you’ve likely misdiagnosed the issue. I still recommend you draw bloods after 2 weeks to check 
    As for proviron, again could be worth a go, some studies have shown it to be none suppressive in individuals with healthy HPTA’s, but you’re best off sticking with one thing at time. And you have to give it a chance to work. At least 2-4 weeks

    Just start off with 0.25mg (a quarter) and see how you feel in a few days, if you improve then see to what point you drop back again ie day 4 or 7, then you can gauge how often to dose. Being natural 0.25 should make a difference.
    Like I said before, do one at a time, or how else can you understand how each drug affects you.
  17. Thanks

    It's different for everyone, but this wouldn't be an uncommon dose for someone on a steroid cycle, so to take it when you're natty is likely to be more than enough, if not too high perhaps?  I'm still fairly new to this so I'd wait for someone who knows a bit more to respond before you take the second dose.

    Okay guys thank you all for your effort, you gave me new hope. Starting arimidex then tomorrow 0.25mg twice a week, I will update you if I feel any changes.

    I would try using low dose adex first, say 0.25mg twice a week (or 0.5 x 1 if you can't split) for a month and see how you feel.
    If no difference then maybe drop and try the clomid.

    Bensif mentioned adjusting your e2 ratio. With half an arimidex and a week you can probably confirm or rule this out - quick easy wins at the diagnosis stage are nice.

    OK fair enough it does sound like it's not mental but I'm far from an expert and I doubt many people are on this forum. I understand you may be here to consider is AAS will be some kind of help but I'd really recommend searching out a forum for your specific problem or getting a second opinion from another doctor. I guess you've tried something like viagra or cialis? I do wish you all the best.
