Always had similar diet but never gained so much weight in such short amount of time

There are a lot of other blood cell results that were within normal range. Not sure to include or not.
I did fast for this blood draw.
2 weeks ago, I added the following supplements to see if I could improve my lab results and reduce symptoms naturally:
Androsurge Anti Estrogen supplement: Vitamin D 1000IU
Grape Seed Extract 150mg
Rhodiola Root Extract 125mg
Eurycoma Root Extract 100mg
and Prime Male Natural Testosterone Booster
Vit D3 5000IU
Vit K2 45mcg
Vit B6 7.5mg
D-Aspartic Acid Calcium 1600mg
Asian Red Ginseng 120mg
Mucuna Ext 300mg
Nettle Root 160mg
This was most recent blood drawn 10 days ago after start of the above supplements
Total Testosterone 414 ng/dL (348-1197 ng/dL)
Free Testosterone 9.31 (5.0-21 ng/dL)
%Free Testosterone 2.25 (1.50-4.20 %)
Estradiol Eclia methodology 13.0 (7.6-42.6 pg/mL)
My Estradiol went down quite a bit from 45 to 13 even at the sacrifice of Testosterone from 484 to 414.
Yet, although I have my energy back, no spontaneous and seldom morning erection, and no sex drive.
Im getting ready to make an appointment with a TRT doctor in my area but wanted to be prepared and also see what any of you guys on here recommend!
Thank You So Much
