    With 6nmol being the cut off used and a relatively hostile stance on TRT, is it even possible for people to start TRT? Has anyone had success finding treatment in the last year or 2?

    Yes, however getting it on the PBS is going to be extremely difficult. I was prescribed TRT 6 months ago. I had a lot of tests over a period of a few years come back between 6-10nmol. I was never low enough to get it prescribed, GPs would tell me I was fine and move me on. I finally got referred to an endo who offered to prescribe it to me off the PBS but wasn't interested in investigating the cause.

    Finally I got my shit together and researched a real, legit doctor specialising in hormone treatment and men's health. He tested me and I came back in that same range once again. This time he ordered follow up tests to find the cause, I have a dodgy pituitary gland that fails to regulate my hormones correctly (along with very low test, my estrogen and prolactin were so low they weren't measurable).

    I now have a script for 250mg test per week, 1mg adex per week (split over two doses). Life's been great, huge improvement across the board. I recommend anyone struggling with symptoms of low test (lack of sex drive, erectile dysfunction, depression, ect) seek out a legit doctor.

    Hey snowman, I have also been given a script for test primo 250mg but he will not give me a script for Aromasin which I need. It’s really annoying me lately as I even get sore nipples every now and then. Even looking at going the underground lab way.

    Have you had a hormonal test to prove your estrogen is too high?

    Hey bud, yeah I have but he seems more interested in lowering my trt dosage to combat it. He was saying AI’s are a breast cancer drug and are too harsh with side effects out weighing the benifets of high test.
    I have done my own research and while I do agree arimidex is harsh or cholesterol I think Aromasin is ok from my research. Just trying to get my hands on it from doc seems impossible.

    Aromasin won't negatively effect cholesterol like Adex, its definitely the way to go.

    Good luck!

    250 migs of test per week for trt? Thats high. Have never come across a gp who would prescribe that amount. It would put your test above the normal range for sure..
