I’ve been on TRT for about 8 weeks now, and have just received my latest labs. I’m taking 50mg test cyp weekly, and 200IU of HCG every 3 days. Here are my labs… It was a struggle to get my doc to even test for estradiol… The labs below are taken on a Thursday, i injected 50mg test cyp on Sunday, and HCG on tuesday.
Estradiol: 164pmol/L (0-160)
FSH/LH - <1IU/L
Prolactin : 21 ug/L (0-15)
SHBG : 19 nmol/l
Testosterone : 30.3nmol/l (8-29)
Free Test : 1020 pmol/l (175-700)
My doctor advised he is not concerned about the estradiol level, and didn’t consider an AI, advising that i have no reason to be concerned. He also shrugged off prolactinoma as he said the reference range to warrant worry is between 75-100ug/L. I’m going to go for a full semen analysis to see if the HCG is working, and then eventually more labs. Currently i have next to no libido which is very odd for me, and i’ve been irritable.
Just wondering your guys thoughts… Am i good to not worry about these results?
Edit: Forgot to mention, went in for ED initially, found my T levels to be 4.6nmol/l, second test 4 weeks later was 6.7nmol/l and doc prescribed me test, and eventually HCG.
Edit: added Albumin
