Last time I took lab test was when I finished my clomid treatment and it was months ago. before clomid I always had low e2 (when i checked it) and was urinating a lot, but if I remember correctly, it was not like I’m urinating right now. I’m waking up most of the times 2+ during the night. glucose labs were fine last time i checked them, prostate seems fine. i try to not drink water 2-3 hours before bed and go to urinate right before sleep.
could it be stress or anxiety?
When I nearly crashed my estrogen using an AI to block estrogen, I was urinating very frequently, but when estrogen is high I barely urinate at all. It sounds like after stopping clomid testosterone declined and estrogen decreased as a result and is why you are having urination issues which means your restart failed and your levels are back to baseline.
If you estrogen was low on clomid, I can only imagine how low estrogen is now.
yeah i have seen my estrogen very low before clomid, but to tell the truth, i don’t remember if symptom improved or how it was during clomid.
If estrogen is in range it still can be low. I had an e2 of 24 or something and it was in range. This e2 range we have is very low. I believe most men do not have these issues when above their 20s.
We’re also a bit different. Some guys don’t have the same symptoms and have other issues like libido and etc.
Sounds like your body returned to status quo. I wouldn’t blame prostate until I first tried to see if raising estrogen helps. Only then would I worry about it and even then PSA are not a good measure. Avoid sex and organs 72 hours before labs because they will get thrown off and your doc will make life hell
I also had this symtom and I also had nightly sweats where I’d get super hot and start sweating profusely. Once I started trt it disappeared the same week. Actually I think it stopped day 2.
I also noticed before trt I would also be very intolerant to heat. I never stayed hydrated and suffered badly in any athletic event mid summer. I started trt and i never sweat unless I do endurance or v02 max work . Even circuit training barely works up a sweat. Your in Cali right? I bet you noticed the same. It’s nice not sweating just walking to the car .
i also sweat during the night sometimes. is this because of low e2?
I used to have hot sweats. It’s cold in my house when I sleep 67°. I would get real hot and start sweating profusely for a minute and then be cool again. Sound similar?
You mention adrenal fatigue . I’m guessing that’s just a guess and you don’t know what’s up?
Right now the low hanging opportunity is estrogen. Get yourself some and get moving.
Chlomid didn’t work . If estrogen is this low either system isn’t back to normal or SHBG is super high or for whatever reason you don’t aromatizing.
If you have low t symtoms I would just get moving on therapy and put this behind you.
no. i just sweat during my sleep sometimes.
well today i visit endo and he’s checking why i have high cortisol levels. isn’t adrenal fatigue part of high cortisol?
yeah low estrogen could be caused by low t.
i think clomid raised shbg to 80 ish, if i remember correctly, i have seen shbg while not taking clomid in the 50 ish- 70 ish.
SHBG goes up and down all day and night. If you want to heal SHBG you go to the root of the issue.
Not sure about cortisol.
The problem with adrenal fatigue is it’s one of those names for a group of shit they don’t know how to fix
