Just wondering if anybody has experienced high estradiol along side good levels of total and free testosterone while on clomid?
I’m taking 25 mg one day and 50 mg the alternating day.
Total T = 956 ng/dl
Total Estradiol = 40 pg/ml
Free T = checked semi regularly, but always within normal ranges
SHBG = never high, always in normal range
On testosterone injections, my total T would be similar (even higher post-injection) but my estradiol would only be 24 pg/ml.
My question is why such a sharp increase in estradiol? My second question is, I feel that despite the very good Total T, I feel only a portion of the positive effects that I did on the injection. For example:
- zero libido
- inability to loose fat on the waist
- brain fog
- can gain muscle mass/strength but very slowly
Has anyone else experienced this phenomenon?
