I can’t be sure why my SHBG is so high. I do have a theory though.
I started TRT in May 2017. SHBG was then at 51. Protocol was via NHS:
Sustanon 250 once every 2 weeks no AI.
That went on until Dec 2017 when I was better educated through research
and the yoyoing of the protocol. I then went private and was put on the following
62.5mg TE250 twice weekly, 125mg per week, no AI.
The periodical blood tests I had from then until 6th Jun 2018
did show an increasing rise in SHBG, mmm.
From 6th Jun 2018 up to now I’ve been on the following protocol:
150mg TE250 once per week, one shot plus 6.25 aromasin every other day.
Libido, ED has been shite from the start. However, from 6th Jun, the last
protocol, I have experienced several days in a row of very high libido
and excellent erections, but nothing consistent.
I’ll get results of bloods sometime this week and plot it with the other
tests I have had done since the 6th and I ‘should’ be able to pinpoint
the numbers where my libido spiked. Hopefully adjusting protocol for a more
Anyway, my theory. I theorize that being on test only, no AI, caused a lot
of aromatization. Which in turn increased my SHBG. Just a theory but there is
evidence out there that it does happen.
I have a hunch, in order to lower SHBG, that I’ll be changing my protocol
to something like the following:
225mg TE250 per week, one shot a week. Maybe more.
I’ll adjust the AI when numbers are in.
At this stage I’m not sure tampering with another chemical to lower SHBG
is wise. It’s being produced for a reason, just can’t nail down what. However,
if I see no benefit of higher T dosing in another eight weeks I will as I’m not sure
throwing ever increasing doses of T at it is healthy long term. But then again
is adding Anavar? Rock and a hard place.
As always I would love any tips from others, especially protocols as I sure no clinics/Doctors are going to prescribe T in doses above 200mg per week. I may have to go solo.
