It has been five days since I stopped all treatment. The results have been nothing short of amazing. I have my old energy back, went for a walk today for the first time in many months. Worked around the house and my head feels like it used to...bright. This is so nice after months of fatigue, low energy and zero interest in the things I used to be interested in. So far so good. I am not claiming this will be how it is from now on but I wanted a break from treatment and I got it. It should go without saying that I am not recommending any of this for anyone. This is only one man's report.
As we all know here, each of us is different, someone may stop treatment and they could die in weeks/months, maybe me but so far I'm glad I gave this a chance.
Today I read an article in The Week which deals with progress in finding a male contraceptive. The drug dimethandrolone undecanoate (a mouthful, why can't they name new drugs names we can remember like Happy Farm or Warm Snuggles 10mg) is to reduce testosterone levels. The highest dose, 400mg had the most dramatic reductions in their T level. To quote: "While the men who took the drug gained a few pounds and their levels of HDL, or "good" cholesterol fell, none of them (83 men between 18 and 50 years old) experienced mood swings, organ damage, or any other serious side effects"
And here is the sentence that stood out for me: "Their hormone levels also recovered within days of stopping medication"
It seems my testosterone is increasing which ordinarily would put me in dangerous territory but so far so good. Stay tuned......
