    8.5 months post-cycle bloodwork- low FSH? HeavyIron, help please!

    Hey guys, I did a short cycle ending in June of last year, ran pct and have had a really difficult time recovering since. About a month ago, i saw an endo who did BW and my prolactin levels were a couple points over the high range so he ordered an MRI where they found a small pituitary tumor/cyst barely 2mm. Other than that T levels were slightly below average for a 26 year old- total T 550, free T 13.3 (ref range 9-26). However FSH was 1.5 (range 1.5-12?). He said this was common with the pituitary and prescribed me some cabergoline. After a month of that, went back for more BW where it showed my prolactin levels were brought down substantially by the caber and my total T went to 660 and free T to 16.6. BUT my FSH was 1.3 this time and my LH 3.9 (ref rang 1.5-12?). I'm so stressed because my balls still don't feel the size they used to be and it's making me depressed. I'm becoming so paranoid I'm worrying the Tbol I took along with the Test P for a month was actually Finasteride instead. My libido is also low but I don't know if this is because of the psychological aspect or actually physiological. I have a ton of cialis and have no problem with my GF using that but worry I could be getting a little too dependent on it. I'm also concerned that my fertility could be effed up for good as I'm getting close to the marriage stage with my gf. My endo said that my FSH levels should improve since my prolactin is now under control. Sorry for the long post, but I'm just concerned. I have my diet in check and I'm okay with no cycling, just want my balls back really. I appreciate any help or suggestions as to what is going on and if there is anything I can do.

    You could run another pct. Youre getting decent tt levels with the lower lh/fsh.

    I would think a low dose clomid/nolva combo with an ai. Were your pct supplies legit?

    I've wondered the same man, and I'm almost 100% they aren't as large. I'm wondering the the libido/erection thing is in my head too along with everything just causing anxiety to where I'm convincing myself all of this. If my FSH level wasn't so low I'd just assume it was. Doesn't the FSH level indicate something about ball size?

    Yeah they were legit. About 4 months after I ran a very low dose clomid a 2nd time and felt better but no difference in ball size.

    I have had all the BW and even the MRI which revealed the small tumor. Is there something further to getting my pituitary checked I'm missing? I figured my endo would have suggested it, he seems pretty knowledgeable.

    Man I've competed in sports my whole life and I've honestly hit my head so many times so I have no idea. What kind of pituitary check are you all talking about other than what I've already done?

    I've also read the same, but how can my pituitary be further tested than with the BW and MRI I've already had?
