I decided to get my test and E2 levels checked after just over 7 weeks on a test e cycle (500mg per week divided into 2 pins) as I’d been experiencing the following issues:
- Weak erections/difficulty ejaculating.
- Frequent urination with issues getting started and stopping during due to a weak stream.
- Emotional issues - mood had been good, but then a couple of days before taking my test I cried at work for pretty much no reason, which was embarrassing and very OOC as I rarely cry.
- Mild flu symptoms that have persisted far longer than they usually do for me (tested negative for covid a couple of days ago).
My results came back as follows:
Testosterone - 3461.04 ng/dl (120 nmol/l)
Estrogen - 179 pmol/l (ref range 41-159).
I was just wondering if my symptoms are more likely to be low or high E2 related?
I initially assumed the latter given the number being a little over the top end of the reference range, but given the very high T levels could it in fact be that the results are too heavily skewed in favour of T in terms of test:estrogen ratio?
The ratio is about 20:1 (assuming pmol/l of E2 is used against ng/dl of test to determine ratio even though the units of measurement are different?).
Thank you for any help that can be provided
