Hi All. Trust everyone is well?
I would like some advice please…
I am on TRT at the moment, the following:
- Monday morning, Wednesday afternoon, Friday evening, 0.2ml Test Cyp @ 250mgs/ml (equals 150mg Test Cyp week for approx 108 mgs test without the ester) injected with a 29G needle in the delts (alternating)
6 weeks ago, I dropped HCG 250IU’s at the time of the T injections, in an attempt to reduce E2 levels. (I had understood that HCG causes rises in E2)
I have just received my labs back. The test was done 24 hrs after last injection.
The results are:
E2: 139 pmol/L - 40 - 161
TT: 30.2 nmol/L - > 12
SHBG: 14.10 nmol/L - 11.1 - 78.1
FT: 992 pmol/L - 180 - 739
So, basically everything is high…My T is not too far over the range, but I would like to get E2 down to 90 - 100.
I would prefer not to make use of an AI if I can help it.
Yes, I do carry to much BF so my aromatase activity is on the high end.
If I change the injection site to the belly (into the fatty area), will that make a change in the peaks and troughs of the T (and also E2)? Bringing it lower due to the slower release rates?
If I reduce the T dosage by 25%, would, all things being equal, that result in a 25% decrease in E2 levels (i.e. are they linear?)
Help and guidance would be really appreciated.
