12 week cycle here, 400mg of testosterone weekly. As I started to get bad acne, no libido, anxiety, and water weight 6 weeks into my cycle, I incorporated my arimidex and started at 0.5mg on day of injections (2x a week). After a couple of weeks, this did nothing, so I upped it to 0.5mg EOD. I now feel like I am having low E2 symptoms. My joints are slightly achy but not too bad, popping, and I’m having some anxiety and just generally feeling kind of crappy. However, I have read about low E2 causing serious libido issues, and what’s funny is my libido is sky high. Ever since having these lower e2 symptoms for some reason my libido has been the highest it has been since the start of the cycle.
I also still have some solid energy. Not as much as before, as my e2 has clearly dropped, but it’s still there. I’m not overly fatigued or experiencing the need to sleep a lot or anything like that. In other words, it almost feels like it went low but didn’t completely crash. So, my question is, without bloodwork yet (which I plan on getting sometime in the near future), what should I take from this .5mg EOD protocol and how it likely put my e2 low yet there’s still a little bit of positive coming from the low e2, specifically no water retention and a strong libido? It’s weird how I felt no fix to my E2 on 0.5mg on day of shots (2x a week) and 0.5mg EOD put me a little too low but not completely tanked. Where should I go from here?
Thanks for all of the advice!!
