> > Androgel or any exogenous source will reduce your own production via the negative feedback loop (pituitary-adrenal-testis), but Androgel should be minimal and your own production will go back to normal when you stop the Androgel if you're not taking a high dose. Clomid can restart via LH in the pituitary.

It will return to a natural state after treatment levels of "T" have ended, but it won't be for a very long time.
