Brief Answer:
Based on the cause of low testosterone

Detailed Answer:
Good day,
Noted your concern.
It depends on the cause of the low testosterone. There can be various reasons for low testosterone and some of them are reversible. For example, obesity and uncontrolled diabetes can cause low testosterone.

This can be reversed with weight loss and good control of diabetes. Certain drugs too can cause low testosterone which also can be brought back to normal range over a period of few weeks to months after stopping the drug which caused low testosterone. However, certain causes of low testosterone are not reversible.

Mine is from using p6 at booster from GNC that has elevated my test and then it crashed. Right now I'm doctor is prescribing clomid and it's my second week hopefully it'll help but I don't want to make my situation worse in the long run and I could lose 40 pounds

Brief Answer:
Lose weight

Detailed Answer:
okay, please work your way to reduce weight. I don't know the contents in those boosters. Usually many of them contain anabolic steroids or testosterone itself which suppress your pituitary/hypothalamic/testicular axis for a long time. If you have used those boosters for long time, sometimes, testes can undergo atrophy as well. Has it happened in your case? In that situation, hCG injections would be preferred over Clomid.

I used periodically for about 2 years and I don't know if having any steroid in it then but the combination of herbs after a while would highly increase your increase the testosterone it started converting into estrogen and I got a little bit of guy know as well the whole thing was just a nightmare by the time I realized it was too late I did maybe 5 to month cycles taking breaks in between but now I also suffer from Serius central retinopathy so I'm not sure if HCG could trigger it again and maybe clomid is safer
