Boodwork over time should show what needs to be adjusted. The problem for me is that my estrogen levels are erratic and seem to vary widely for no discernible reason. I understand that such a variation is not uncommon.

Regarding T and the joy of being rid of it - I agree, but having low T can lead to lethargy, extremely low sex-drive and minimal reward (climax sensation)

The problem is that whilst some people post-op settle at a natural T level of around the female average, others like myself fall far below it.
I am going into hospital for a very small surgery so I stopped my hormones about 18 days ago as instructed. Testosterone clears the system in around 72 hours.
Last night I masturbated and the climax and sense of reward was definitely markedly lower than I have been accustomed to over the past year.
I am sure that is due to the lowered T-level.

When I resume the hormones, I will be aiming to keep T levels between 1.6 and 2.0nmol/L

btw - being chemically castrated and surgically castrated though similar in most respects are not the same thing - Not in my opinion anyway and I have experienced both.

Hi Steffi

I can't believe I've just found this topic. I'm long-time post-op 10+ years, and have always thought my libido was off the charts (bottom of)...
I'd finally gotten around to thinking about testosterone. And then I found the posts on the forum.
May I ask, did you go your GP? I've have about 5 GP's since post-op, and none have a clue. I've never had any tests for hormone levels, and I'm thinking I need to sort this out. I get prescribed the lowest levels of HRT and that's it. All they ever check is liver function.
Anyway - rant over. Did you have any problems persuading your GP to prescribe T-gels?
Would really welcome some advice upon this.
Thanks
Ella
