Stupid idea , or not?

This is what I would do.

Half a mil of test e or c every 10 days. 500iu of hcg twice weekly. Bloods after week 5, adjust test dose if required. See how I feel after 8-10 weeks. If I still feel shite and bloods confirm the test dose has brought me in range then I’d realise that low test isn’t the problem and stop test. If I feel great I’d continue.

I’m not a doctor and I’m not recommending that you do this. It’s just what I would do personally 

Thanks Sasnak, that's the kind of straight to the point type of reply I was after.

Also, whilst I’ve never used clomid I read that it can make you feel like shite

If you take too much it does. 12.5mg two or three times a week was the most i'd take because any more than that caused low moods. I think i may have burnt my balls out using it for so long though.

personally i'd pursue it though the NHS quoting/using  the BSSM guidelines (it may take some time  but TRT is going to  be for life so will be worth getting an official diagnosis in the long run ) .

alternatively you can try and get an official diagnosis from an independent specialist and try and push it through your GP.

...or you can go self med  , which comes with the downside of having to source UGL  (which you never know is correctly dosed ) as well as pay for the blood tests you are going to need  (for the rest of your life ).

Thanks aqualung, sound advise as per usual. I've gone and done something stupid unfortunately. I got that result while i was at work yesterday (Saturday). I'd heard that my gp's were now doing appointments on Saturdays, so when i got home i sat in my car and phoned up - they were closed. So i went in the house and sat there for several hours struggling with my options, which were: try clomid again and restest in a few weeks, self treat with ug test, or wait for doctors appointment in the week. I don't know why, but i just got mad with myself not being able to lay out a plan and sticking to it (it's been 18 months since my first Medichecks test, and i've done nothing positive about it) - so i went and stuck 60mg test in my stomach, subq. Of course, ten minutes later i realised having just had a blood test well below nhs limits, i should have just waited and let them look into it sometime this week. I'm so mad with myself, and again with no plan that i'm happy with in my head.
