2 Months after 12-Week Test E Cycle


#1

I have done Test E cycle 500mg per week for 12 weeks. Then I have done PCT for 4 weeks. from last month I did not have any medicine and I am on Protein and Pre-workout only.

I got my blood test done today because I have water retention. I got my tests for
1. Sodium : 138 meq/L
2. Potassium: 3.5 meq/L
3. SGOT: 21.9
4. SGPT: 25.8
5. Estradiol E-2 : 58.6 Pg/mL
6. Serum Testosterone : 1226.3 ng/dl

as per my results, my Testosterone and Estrogen levels are high even after 2 months of Test E cycle. I have water retention on my back and tummy.

Is it normal to have high Testosterone and Estrogen level after 2 months?
What should I do to get rid of Estrogen and Water retention.

Any help will be appreciated.

well, if your PCT went well, you should at least have normal test levels… what might be going on, is your SERM (did you use Nolva/Clomid??) is still active… Nolva/Colmid have a long half-life (a week or so), so that might be what’s going on there…

as far as elevated estrogen post cycle, well, that happens if you don’t lower estrogen. a SERM doesn’t lower estrogen… it displaces it from the estrogen receptor (ER). if you have high E levels, then can slowly come down, but they are actually pretty suppressive. i’d look into an aromatase inhibitor (AI) at this point… aromasin can take care of the high estrogen while keeping your test levels high…
