A month after my initial visit, I was back in my endocrinologist’s office for the results of a follow-up blood test. Put off by the prospect of infertility, I’d been very reluctant to go the TRT route, and opted instead for a clomiphene citrate, or Clomid. Designed to stimulate ovulation in women, the pills have also proven effective at raising T levels in men with secondary hypogonadism—that is, men whose difficulty producing testosterone stems from problems in the hypothalamus or the pituitary gland. In many cases, Clomid can prod the body into upping its production of testosterone.
