What is SHBG on the lowish side? A number…
To that point, if you’re E is over the lab range you could reasonably conclude that your Free Estrogen is likewise very high. Just because you go EOD and/or use such a small amount of Cyp does not mean that you can always control E thru that method, control enough to not need an AI, I mean.
I over aromatase and have to use 12.5mg Daily of Aromasin even using just 16mg/D of Cyp. I have a theory that I have applied to myself that your E2 Sensitive should mirror your SHBG #. My SHBG is 12 at last test and I’m doing the best Ive ever done with my E2 in the single digits. If it’s affordable for you you should add a test “Estradiol, Free”, it can be an eye opener for the low SHBG guy.
As another way to look at it, SHBG binds to E, just like it does to T, which is my point about Free T being so high.
