6'3" 248 lbs 20-25% body fat 29 years old lifting for 12+ years.
I did my first cycle of 500mg/wk test e for 12 weeks, and just started my 6th week of cruising at 250mg/wk test e. I inject 2x per week, and I got my blood work done right before my monday injection, so test levels were at their absolute lowest. I take accutane 20mg/day 2-3 days per week. I drink on the weekends.
I started with arimidex .5mg ed but quickly got low estrogen sides including joint stiffness and limp dick. I stopped and felt fine. I think I might be an overresponder. I switched to 6.25 mg aromasin ED which seemed to have everything in line. I haven't taken any AI or SERM on cruise.
I did the female hormone panel. Here are the out of range results:
RDW 15.8 12.3-15.4%
Creatinine, Serum 1.29 .76-1.27 mg/dL
Estradiol 95.5 7.6-42.6 pg/mL
So obviously estrogen is totally fucked. I have had pretty bad fatigue the last few days but felt much better after monday's injection. Still I've been sleeping a lot. Blood pressure was slightly high but nothing to worry about.
So my question is based on your experience what dose of AI should I run on cruise? I will obviously test with blood work so I'll know when I'm in the optimal range but I want to do as little trial and error as possible. I was thinking 12.5mg 2x per week every time I inject.
I had planned on running 750mg/wk test e starting next week for my second cycle. Should I keep cruising until I get my estrogen in check and know how much AI to use when cruising, or just start the cycle because it's gonna change everything anyway? And then based on blood work on cycle I can estimate better how much AI I need when cruising?
I used UGL for my cycle but human grade for cruise which I'm going to keep using, and based on blood work it looks very accurately dosed.
Thanks for reading and any advice.
