    You can disagree all you like mate but i quite clearly said if i was a GP who prescribed trt to someone who was within range, meaning there was no need for hormone replacement therapy then i would have a problem because im prescribing something for a condition that dose not require medication.

    Now given a common sense approach those seeking this kind of medication are likely to run it at higher levels than trt anyway and if that said person has a underlying issue with there prostate then there s not a lawyer in the land that would not have a filed day.

    Won't happen. I have one ball, and a similar test range. You first have to get ED and attempt suicide twice before you'll be approved for TRT.

    Good luck. Trt is 6nmol or lower now. If Dr is by the book would need 3 blood tests as well from memory.

    Too many gear heads trying for trt hasn't helped the cause for legit cases.

    Most likely need referral to an endo if you want specialised help mate.

    Endo may or may not help, depends entirely on the endo

    Ha ha. The prob is going into the Dr, trying to squeeze your hamstrings and quads into his chair while veins are wrapped all around us like some freaky vine. Then saying....Doc, i think my T levels are low. Ha ha

    I have the same issue mate, my T level is 12, I thinks it's pretty low for a 36 year old male. But the endocrinologist was like, well that's within the normal range, and that was it end of conversation.
    I would like to get start TRT , but not sure how? Any help from this forum is welcome.

    I think the biggest problem is that guys who have cycled have forgotten what "normal" feels like and are still chasing that extra boost that you get when on...

    Hey vincenzzo2015, I had same issue a few months ago and was ready to start my own trt. I decided not to a d kept doc shopping. I am now happy I did as I found a doc in the same practise just next office to my old gp lol that is helping me. I am currently on 250mg fortnightly. Even got a nurse to do it for me if I want. This new doc of mine said for my age I should b around 25nmol/l and that's where he wants me. Still fine tuning frequency as I feel that I'm back low again near end of 2 week mark. It wow couldn't believe how easy it is when a doc understands and let me tell u missis loves it to lol. Keep in touch if u have any questions

    wow that's great mate! I wish I could find a GP who can help me out in Melbourne. How did you go about doing your doctor shopping? I even tried an integrative medicine specialist , even he seems to consider 12 as normal, that was a waste of $230.

    Honestly I just went to another doc, decided to try my luck in the same practise as they have all my blood tests on their computer so I didn't have to get them all printed off.
    I went in, and guess I said all the right things eg. My erections aren't as hard as they used to be its effecting my sex life, low sex drive, I feel tired half way through the day and on days off find myself having a midday nap, I'm not as out going and happy as I used to be more so just feel like I'm drifting through life ......... ect ect.
    i originally thought only couple of them were true but I figured I throw every symptom and this gp and see how I go and it worked. Now that I'm on trt I think most of them were actually true, just never really noticed it as they slowly creeped in

    Yep all I get is primo 250mg but I have had bloods done and my E is 80nmol/l so on trt I don't need it. But yeah I want some so when I cycle I've got it on hand. Not sure yet how to keep my test level where my gp wants it but raise my E. If I cycle and get bloods done, yeah my E will be high but so will my T so he will know something is going on

    Ok so after about a year on androforte 5% cream 1ml per day I have gone from a reading of 11 to 32..... was actually shocked as shit by that reading.

    Just for anyone who was interested in the creams..... anyone know the limit of test in Australia? I think its 33 or something. Seems decent as i was going to ask for the injections but Dr reckons thats a massive jump in levels so.
