Current protocol is 100mg test cyp, divided into 2 doses, IM and 500iu hCG 3X/week. Been running this since June 1.
Six weeks in was experiencing sensitive nipples, no morning wood, 10 pounds fluid retention, elevated BP and resting heart rate was 10BMP higher than before TRT, and edema in hands was especially bad.
Got labs back three weeks ago and the results were:
TT: 1010 ng/dL (RR is 265-916)
FreeT: 185 pg/mL (RR 33-227)
BioT: 433 ng/dL (RR 131-682)
SHBG: 50.2nmol/L (RR 19-76)
E2(sens.) 56 pg/mL (RR 11-43) Previous from late May was 41.
Endo put me on .5mg Adex, 2X/week. Now wood is good, BP, RHR, and nipple issues have been resolved but I’m still having edema in hands and holding fluid in general.
Does Adex take more than three weeks to get fluid balance under control or is something else going on?
