Dropping AI, Worried about Rebound

I got my e2 into range by doing Ed injections and .5 mg Ed of adex my e2 was at 73 on sensitive test from 62.5 twice a week sub q switched to im and upped adex!

Now I raised my dose (25mg ed) and lowered ai to .25 mg Ed I still having low e2 symptoms my joints are aching my mood is like a zombie!

I don’t understand why did I require so much ai on a lower dose now I feel I don’t even need it?

I got bloodwork today and waiting for results?

I plan on raising dose to 250 mg and dropping or lowering ai?

.25mg A daily is still a lot, for 250mg test.

How long have you been on this new protocol?

10 weeks

Ok so first everyday injections (what dose?) and AI .5mg daily

Then daily injections 25mg with .25mg A daily for 10 weeks?

What’s the question? Raise dose or lower AI dose? Idk how do you feel now?

Still no libido morning wood! Feel numb,

That would be low e2 to me. Just as a trial drop the AI or cut to .25mg twice a week and see if that helps

I would check out OP’s thread history. He changes protocols more than I change underwear. Then he complains he cant get dialed in. I seriously doubt its been 10 weeks since his last round of posting.

Very ignorant!

Lol so people who do 10 week cycles it takes them 15 weeks to get dialed in dosent make any sense?

250mg isn’t a cycle, it’s just playing around with the upper limits of TRT. You AI is insanely overdosed. And the “Dial in” on cycles is non-existent because the androgen levles are so high, but would work better if the user “Dialed in” what he’s using instead of throwing the kitchen sink at it. And a 10 week “Cycle” with test would be less than useful for much.

You arent running a cycle, supposedly. Your specialist you have been working with is fuking you up. OR you cant just be patient and work the protocol.

We got bloods today the plan is to add more test and drop ai all together depending on where my e2 suts

Why change two things at once? Drop the AI down, but keep dose the same, see how you feel. I’d drop AI entirely before I upped the dose while still taking AI trying to dial in both at the same time

Stopped my ai two weeks ago armidex as I haven’t had a libido on trt at all! Finally decided to stop ai and raise dose to 250 mg of prop a week(Ed injections)!

It’s been two weeks and wow did armidex have some nasty sides I felt like a rat was eating my stomach no appetite my e2 was at 12 on a sensitive test!

It’s been two weeks and I have no high e2 signs is that a good sign I won’t need a ai in the future?

When should I start feeling better?

I just posted a similar thread as I found I had ED starting a couple of weeks after amiridex. I did not take my course this week. I was on 1mg a week. Interested to see the feedback you get

I think Ed injections helped me

It took me about a month after stopping AI’s to really tell a noticeable positive difference. If you’re estrogen is crashed (at 12 it is) and you want it back up quicker drink a beer before bed for a week. It cut the time in half.

I don’t drink and I think that would fix the estrogen problem and give make me ed worse

Your problem is you have no estrogen and your dick doesn’t work. My dick works best when my estrogen is 80 on TRT.

For me estrogen 1.5-2 norm is also best. Too high or too low both have nasty sides. I think 1.5-2 norm works best for most people on cycle. Monitor blood, don’t let it go too high. When I crashed my estro, I did bomb myself with test it came back fast.
