  • What happens to FSH and LH with no testes?

    Just got my first bloodwork post the 2nd orchiectomy and post TRT. My FSH and LH are skyhigh. Like 15x the topend of range for fsh and 4-5x topend for LH

    In men with testes, you’d expect both of these to shutdown on TRT, due to shutdown of the HPTA axis.

    That clearly didn’t happen for me. I’m on 5g androgel. Going to try to switch to injections as my estradiol is rock bottom and my T should be higher.

    Doc thought that might also lower FSH and LH. But….will it without testes? And what happens if those remain sky high for life?
