I would avoid taking testosterone or HCG. It originally helped me but seemed to lose effectiveness. It did help with some strength in erections etc but for mental sides it was horrible, it was just too much of a roller coaster. It seemed to cause extreme anxiety and panic for me even with ''perfect'' blood ratios.
Yea I can say your experience while on T and HCG is pretty consistent with what happened to me when I increased cortisol with licorice. For the first three days while on the licorice I had strength in erections with the weird random anxiety. After three days (even after I stopped taking the licorice) the anxiety continued and the gain in erections went away followed by all those sides getting worse.
I’m pretty sure the same thing would happen to me if I went on T or HCG. I react better to the natural boost from herb cycling which in my case does not cause anxiety but only gives me temp strength in erections which fades while doing noting for the other sides. It never makes me worse though. So with PFS unlike what endo’s have told me in the past for us it does matter “how the T gets their”
My last cycle of RU gave me that temp strength in erections but also temp improvement in other sexual sides which is what distinguishes RU for me. Nothing else has ever done that for me. All the cycles of R Andro, the 5a-DHP, my 7 day juice fast, even when my diet was real clean for a while and is still pretty clean all the time. All just temp Strength in erections but never touched the typical list of other sexual sides.
I suppose I could do a two week water fast but I don’t react well to fasting. I lost twenty five pounds on a 7 day juice fast and was 175 pounds at 6 foot 5. I could not go any longer. So I don’t think that’s an option for me to lose less than I did on a simple 7 day juice fast
