Adult-onset hypogonadotropic hypogonadism--how does gnrh therapy differ from normal testosterone therapy? Which therapy is best for 42 year old male?

If it's still undescended, see you doctor soon. ...Read more

Serequel 50 mg (anti psychotic) increase proctalin levels, does that mean it decreases testosterone significantly?i ask from bodybuilding perspective

Usually not: also you might not necessarily have a change in prolactin level on that dose. Diphenhydramine, which you list as a medication you take, can raise your body temperature and may not be safe to take when doing strenuous exercise.

Does total abstinence increase or decrease testosterone levels?

Not likely to change: There is a use it or lose it issue that seems to happen, if you totally abstain from sexual activity, you may lose interest, but that is not necessarily the same as lowering your testosterone. Even if abstinence could raises low testosterone levels (which i don't think it can) it would surely seem counter productive! we have much better ways to fix low testosterone. ...Read more
