Please always also test FT
Should be watching PSA and DRE at 6 months
Always do labs halfway between injections to avoid lab timing artifacts.
Lowering E2 will normally slowly decrease SHBG.
Watch hematocrit [HTC], if it gets much higher you are reducing T dose and/or loosing blood.
Take anastrozole at time of injections.
Take all three at same time.
250iu hCG SC EOD is adequate. Larger amounts may drive more T-->E2 inside the testes and increase overall E2 levels. Anastrozole does not work inside the testes and sometimes high E2 results. Your high E2 suggests this. hCG for you is for mood and cosmetic needs, not making T. Try 250iu E3D and see what happens to E2.
Because of this suspected hCG induced high E2, I hesitate to calculate a new E2 dose because with less hCG E2 could then be too low.
Reduce hCG as suggested after skipping one dose.
Increase anastrozole to 0.6mg E3D NOW to match your T dose and test TT, FT, E2 in 4-6 weeks. You should feel better in two weeks.
To dose anastrozole, make a solution of 1mg/ml in vodka and dispense 0.6ml into water and drink. Anastrozole needs some alcohol to be dissolve.
E2 can explain all of your bitchy mood and life will feel transformed.
