Okay I don't know if this is the right forum to psot this in but here it goes, last year around November I had my Testosterone levels check adn LH and FSH levels all done, my FSH was a little low, and my testosterone was at 238, I am a 22 year olf male and had always kind of had erection problems but the month I took the injection it seemed to be better, well something happened outside of that and I was taken off the TRT for 8 months and finally was put back on it, but had my Testosterone retested, this time in an 8 month period it was only 279, not much difference from 8 months ago.
I'm only 23 soon and I have been told and alongside done research and for my age my Testosterone level should be way above 279, so now again I am back on TRT 2 times a month, every 2 weeks. Well I have a concern, I know that TRT will or can eventually shut down your testies when it comes to making testosterone, alongside lowering your FSH/LH, but can it also lower your sperm count alot when you actually need TRT and have a low level of testosterone?
I mean my testosterone level is 279 for a healthy 23 year old, and I want to have a good lebido and more active energy, Its not being over used or anything like I dont need it, because I do. But after reading up on it, im afraid that if I do keep going with this method, which is injection which is all my medicaid will cover is, me and my GF plan on having a baby in a few years, but im scared if I do keep on TRT even tho its needed, that the artificial testosterone will eventually shut down my testes and stop producing its own testosterone and LH/FSH all together and thus lowering my sperm count severely and causing me to shoot blanks?
Or if and when it may come to that point if I stop taking it, will my testies over a few months period finally start to produce they're own testosterone and LH/FSH levels again? Thanks for any answers you all can give me.
