Hello to all my Sister-kin. I have just received my first set of blood labwork as I prepare to head into my consultation for starting hormones, and the original plan...to start with low dose T-blockers (spiro)...appears to be shot before I even start. I'm told a 'normal' Testosterone range is 250-300 at the low end with 1000 - 1200 at the high end. Imagine my surprise (or lack there of...) when my Testosterone number came in at a paltry 159. really??. my WTF moment for today.
So, before I prematurely celebrate... the question I pose to those who have gone this way before me...am I looking at good news? or not? I looked up why ones T numbers can be so low...and of course it may not always be a good thing, or it may just explain a lifetime of trying unsuccessfully to 'man up!'. seriously.
NOTE: My follow up with the Dr is out a couple weeks (in Nov) so I have some time to ponder all this (and scour the net for more info). Looking forward to hearing from the more experienced ladies here.
