THE MAIN QUESTION:
For the three weeks, starting four weeks before my blood test i was taking .75mg arimidex a week. Then i realized that i always get bloodwork while using arimidex and should stop. I stopped for the 4th week, and then gave blood. After stopping for a week my e2 was 11 with the men’s e2 test.
now my question for you guys is, how long does arimidex take to affect your e2 levels (not create a physiologically user-noticeable response)?
I think/believe that my e2 of 11 is not the “natural” point it would be at if i had never used arimidex. i think it is still coming back up even after a week later. I also do weekly shots, so most of my e2 is probably generated at a specific time in the week.
Stopping arimidex completely will probably put my e2 at high 20’s on once weekly shots, in my stupid opinion.
I think that even though i was low with e2 on arimidex, that if a week later im at e2=11, which is maybe 7-11 points too low, i should use arimidex but not .75mg
.2mg arimidex weekly, on day of injection seems appropriate.
FWIW: I take l-opti-zinc each day, afternoon. multi vitamin with zinc in morning. also taking NSI DIM Complex which is mostly cruciferous blend rather than straight DIM (much more natural/less likely to overdose IMO). I think that this may further be a reason i may need only .2mg a week or none at all of arimidex. also i am young, only 23, so maybe my e2 regulation is naturally much stronger then you old farts.
