Female HRT

Wife getting bloods done in a couple days after I suggested it thanks to this thread. Same issues, non existent libido low energy the whole 9. Her endo requested thyroid, test, estradiol and quite a few more I can’t remember off the top of my head. No progesterone however. Looking forward to the results. Thankful for this thread 💪🏼
 
If you don’t mind me picking your guys brains about your ladies aging. About what age do their hormones start to go haywire?

I’m not sure what the norm is, but it was early 40’s for my wife.

Mine is only 33, had our 1st and only child 3 years ago and ever since that pregnancy her issues with libido and such began. Her endo mentioned it’s normal after pregnancy, that it took her (the endo) 5 years for her libido etc to come back to normal I said fuck that. It’s obvious screwed up hormones, why would you just ride it out instead of looking for the cause and addressing it? Docs are stupid.

Thank you for your reply bro. My wife and I are in our 30’s and this past 6 months or so I’ve noticed her sexual desire has changed as well as her drive. Always moody , tired etc. I kinda mentioned to her about her hormones and ofcourse got yelled at like the conversation was taboo cause her Doc said it was too early in life to discuss. Lol

I had mine go straight to an endocrinologist and skip her doctor because her primary is an idiot that probably would’ve said something along those lines. Her endo asked if she had gone to her doctor 1st my wife said nope and the endo had no issues with it and seems somewhat understanding of the situation. My wife does my pins and is cool with me being on TRT and now blasting and crusing. My Testosterone levels didn’t come back in my 20s been on TRT since. Had conversations, sort of using my own personal experience when I was the one with no libido no drive etc due to screwed up hormones from cycling made it easier to put things into perspective for her and understand that she may just be on the same boat I once was just for obviously different reasons. If yours ain’t open at all to the idea of simply doing bloods to “see” then that’s a tough mountain to climb.

Female hormones are much more complex than ours. Before hopping on trt you have to understand that ovulation plays a big role in test results. In reality she hasn’t reached her peak yet. It happens around mid 30’s to 40. Chances are very good that her drive, tiredness etc are just a result of stress. It’s a very strong influence on our well being. Kids, home, bills, on and on are all part of that.
 
I prescribe 1cc test C per week.
return and report
 
Get Shredded!
Of what dosage/mixture though. 50mg/ml vs 250 mg/ml makes a huge difference at 1cc ;)
Test C is cypionate and hes clearly joking. 20 mg of a long ester every week or two is around the avg fem trt dose.

Need to go by bloodwork though not what some dude on the internet like me says ;)
 
Wives bloods are in her estrogen is 56 and Testosterone 19, what other markers should I be looking at? Any input on these numbers?

Two that I would look into would be progesterone and thyroid.
Her estrogen and testosterone levels are both at the bottom of the reference range. Just because they are “normal” they are definitely not optimal.

Her thyroid panel was all within range. Her endo didn’t order progesterone.

Progesterone is very important. You may want to get that too by what ever means needed.

DHEA-s and Pregnanolone are also important to check. Just bc amazon sells these do not underestimate them. They are VERY strong hormones and convert to a multitude of things.

Thanks Matt, I wanted her to test for progesterone based on what I’ve been reading, but seems her endo asked questions regarding pregnancy and since we’re not trying to get pregnant she disregarded the progesterone labs, I could be off here a little, but that’s what I understood. Might have her doing bloods privately to check for it.

To disregard progesterone bc you're Not trying to have kids is basically the same as saying we are going to disregard estrogen in men bc they are Not trying to become women. It's an essential female hormone that has way more function, regulation and cause/effect beyond pregnancy. I'm no endo but I know for a FACT that my wife needs progesterone to feel normal and have a normal libido. It's part of her hrt along with Test and dhea. She still makes her own estrogen and the dhea gives it a bump. We could draw the comparison that some endos want to keep men's estrogen tanked as well when we both know how important some estrogen is for longevity, health, happiness, sex drive, well being etc.
 
In my experience, many endocrinologists are incompetent when it comes to HRT for males and especially females.
The one in my town wrote my script for 100mg of testosterone every other week.

If there are any docs here please feel free to correct me but I've heard docs say the one thing they learn the least about is endocrinology. So in regards to their general knowledge regarding it it's not their fault. It's the fault of the ones that write the curriculum. I feel like the docs they do know what they are talking about and doing with endo is bc they took it upon them selves to learn it after med school on their own time. Again, I'm not a doctor so anyone feel free to correct me but that's just what I've heard from what I consider to be reliable sources.

I agree. I heard a urologist interviewed that said they spent about 2 weeks on hormones in school. Thankfully I was able to link up with a urologist that had an interest in bodybuilding and hormones.

I think I may of listened to the same interview or one very similar.
