Live a pretty sedentary lifestyle besides hitting the gym about 5 times a week. Have been experiencing low energy levels, low libido, irritability and found it difficult to put on muscle mass ( Have been lifting for a couple years at this point never had great gains ). Went to my primary about 8 months ago with these symptoms and found my total test at 290 (low Fsh and Lh as well). Was referred to an Endo and he prescribed me Chlomophene 25mg EOD. My symptoms never greatly improved and after a month or two i began to experience symptoms of gyno, this made me jump of the medication right away. My Endo then prescribed me .25 of Anistrozle to be taken twice weekly. However, after a couple months the gyno symptoms flared up again and i got off the medication (I remember my test being around 800 at that point but my E2 was up to 46). From what I’ve read that was do to the conversion of T>E2 in the testes which an AI cannot take care of thus leading me to not feel the full effects of the testosterone(feel free to correct me if I’m misunderstood). The labs above are from roughly 6 weeks after stopping the chlomophene. Now, I’ve decided to dive fully in and get the shots ( i start on Monday). My Endo insists I start on 200mg of Cypionate Once a week,(convinced him to let me do 100mg twice a week to avoid the rollercoaster effect). He is willing to prescribe me an AI along with the shots (Thank god) and recommended i take .5mg of Anastrozole on Injection days. Is this enough to ensure i don’t get gyno? Also curious to what you guys think of my treatment plan Overall having gone through this yourselves. Cheers.
