what if I ask AND answer the questions?
yes. libido and morning erections are impacted by too high estradiol and/or too low estradiol.
and yes, if you have a good libido and morning erections then that would an indication that your estradiol is still within range… is it ideal? no way to know without a blood test. Is it too high, but your body is able to compensate in the short term and mask the symptoms? possibly. If it is high and it stays too high, could it cause your system to crash at some point in the future without treatment? yes.
I only advise starting medication when you are partnering with a doctor and have a prescription - and are basing the medication on blood tests (or severe measurable symptoms).[/quote]
My primary care doctor had originally prescribed 100mg/week and labs showed T was still very low that is why he went to 200mg/week but I had not felt any different, thus the question about going a little higher. I will tough it out until I see endo.
