Okay so first things first. I’m 28 work out often and have a decently clean diet. I’ve been on trt for six months and honestly have never felt so awesome in my life. Before I started it I was extremely depressed, didn’t look forward to anything, extremely lethargic, moody, just an overall unhappy depressed person. My total t was 318, and my free t was like 6. I don’t remember any levels of anything else. Which I’m realizing was a big mistake.
I was started on 140mg of test cypionate a week for six weeks. Then tested again I remember my total was like 418 and again I didn’t pay attention to anything else. Dr upped my dose to 170mg a week for another 6 weeks and then took labs. My total was at 523 and I remember my e2 was a flat 20. At this point I was feeling awesome putting on a lot of muscle losing a lot of fat. Sex was awesome. I really felt the benefits of it. Mentally I was just a different person.
Dr wanted to up my dose again to 200mg a week. Of course I wasn’t about to say no. I was feeling awesome looked awesome. I was like hell yeah. 3 months later I get my labs done for my 6 months. My total t is at 738 no/dL SHBG is at 36.5 nmol/L and estradiol is at 50.0 pg/ml. Dr prescribed me 1mg astrazole(sp) to take two days after my injection.
I really haven’t done much research on trt till this point because I’ve been feeling awesome and just wasn’t worried about anything. I wish that wasn’t the case but it is. After reading about astrazole(sp) I’m worried if this is the right thing or what. I guess I’m just looking for advice and guidance on how to keep everything optimal. I’m starting to feel like the dr is just treating everything as a standard and not really personalized to me and that’s worrying me a little now.
