So to start I have dabbled a bit in the pasty with TRT and cycling TST. Current 42 and initially was felling rundown etc so went to a clinic and they put me on TRT. LAter learned through research that I wasn’t low and didn’t need TRT so came off. Felt awful and about 6 months later after researching I ran a 12 week cycle to try and build back what I lost. Did PCT and all went really well even coming back with even higher TST levels in the high 600s.
I’ll admit, I missed the feeling of being normal again. I really felt like myself again and decided to run another cycle this past November. About a month in I just didn’t feel well and got spooked. I stopped short and ran a small stint of PCT.
In the time since I stopped short I’ve gained almost 30lbs and it’s not muscle. My thighs are huge, my abdomen has grown a few inches, mood swings all over the place. I haven’t changed my diet, eat pretty clean, exercise daily as I always have (cardio, strength training).
Have I screwed myself up? My fear is that I have too much estrogen given where the extra weight is showing up. Any thoughts or advice?
