It’s been a while since my last post but trt and managing e2 has been quite a ride. My problems first began when my TSH reached 6.6 during a yearly physical exam. I was under extreme stress and I believe it was the cause of most of my health issues. A couple of weeks later after requesting Testosterone test it was at 153.
I began injecting test cypionate but e2 was always high or low no matter how much or how often I took arimidex or aromasin. I had been injecting 25mg 3 times per week which put me at total testosterone of 600 and free at 18.6. My SHBG ranged between 16-18 while on trt probably resulting in higher free testosterone.
Over the last couple of months I tapered my dose down to 30 mg per week with my last injection of 15mg on December 29th.
I received labs today that were taken on January 26th. I have been injecting Hcg at 250 IU eod since December 21st and would cycle hcg every couple of months during trt.
Total t 106 range 348-1197
Free t 7 range 6.8-21.5
SHBG 22.6 range 16.5-55.9 highest tested
E2 sensitive 3.4 range 8-35 taking 6.25 aromasin 2x per week, obviously too much.
TSH 1.06 range .45-4.5
Thyroxine t4 7.7 range 4.5-12
T3 uptake 29 range 24-39
Free thyroxine index 2.2 range 1.2-4.9
LH 4.5 range 1.7-8.6
FSH 3.4 range 1.5-12.4
I took my last 250iu of hcg on January 25th, the day before lab work. I began taking prescription Nolvadex on January 27th at 10mg per day. What do you think my chances are of recovering, so far I have had only some insomnia while on the hcg and waking up extremely hot but no sweating. Energy level still decent, mind clearer, less moody. I will note that when I was taking 20 mg on Monday and Thursday that I felt the best I had in a long time.
