    I'm considering going and getting blood work because I honestly think I have low test.

    Wanted to get you guys and gals opinions first.


    I am 28, i still can't grow a full beard, patchy, some bald spots, and despite what i try to do I still have moobs; no pics.

    Are these good indicators that i might suffer from low test?


    Thanks in advance, I looked in the archives but without a search function its a rather daunting task to find a specific question that may have been covered in hundreds of steroid discussions.

    Do you think it's worth it for me to spend the money and find out for sure?

    Also if I am low does the doc need to be able to prescribe narcotics to give me what i will need?

    My fail boat family doc recently had his narcotics license revoked for sketchy script writing practices so if xyz pill or shot is considered a Narcotic ill need to go to a different doctor to avoid paying for blood work twice.

    There's a big difference between some fat in the pec region and actual gynecomastia.

    What's your diet like?
    What's your training like?
    Are you lean other than the pectoral area?

    It's always possible you have low test, sure, but it's also one of those things that people tend to read and go OMG I HAS IT. If you do decide to get it tested, sounds like you definitely need to find another doctor.

    If you post in otfn, you probably have low test.

    Supposedly libido is the main sign though? If that's the case then I got nothing to worry about. I probably just have shit genes when it comes to adding muscle and for mood disorder shit.

    there could be many different problems in your case, obviously low libido is going to be one of the main ones. only way to really know if by getting a complete blood panel. it could possibly be t3/t4 levels or even something as simple as your diet and/or training causing fatigue/depression

    I feel better when training, when I miss workouts my mood/sleeping absolutely goes to shit. My training and diet are based on Pur's thread...bigger meals with less frequency though. Of course I have couple day stretches when I fuck up my diet but overall I'm pretty good. And my libido is extremely healthy..I wake up at attention and my head turns any time a remotely fuckable female walks by.

    Libido is a good indicator of test/estrogen ratio being out of wack. You may have normal T and low estrogen and still experience poor libido, or normal T and high estrogen (rare though). It's all about balance.







    Unless you just wanna be jacked.....inject a gram a day if thats the case:hsugh:

    hey guys i can't get big muscles so i think i must have low test. no way could it possibly be a multitude of other factors such as my workouts, nutrition, sleep patterns, focus, etc

    you realize he's not complaining about his muscles, right? HRT is going to be a very accepted thing in 10-20 years, it wouldn't surprise me a bit if at least 20-30% of all males are on it. All of this shit in our food is starting to show it's evil. Also with obesity on the rise and estrogen levels rising, it's only going to get worse.
