Looking for a of advice. I have been on TRT for 4 months now. I won't get into the details but initially HCG caused me a ton of problems and I got off it. During that time, I also crashed my E2 for the better part of a month.
I now inject 28mg test cyp EOD (subq into abdominal fat), equaling about 100mg per week. No AI, No HCG... have been off both of those for 2+ months now. My latest three readings are below, each taken two weeks apart. Given my frequency of injection, I can't imagine I have much of a trough.
TT 780 (348-1197) E2 17 (3-70)
TT 929 E2 15
TT 849 E2 18
E2 seems a notch too low at <20. I love that currently, I don't need an AI to manage E, but would also like it a bit higher. If I changed my schedule to 50mg E3.5D, could this raise E2 a little bit, while keeping T in the same realm? Further, does SHBG play into this at all? My SHBG, as of a few months ago, was on the higher end. One would think the slightly bigger bursts of T might cause a slightly greater conversion to E, while also positively impacting free T levels due to high SHBG.
I actually like injecting, so EOD isn't a problem for me at all. I have noticed others, like KSMAN inject EOD... just curious why and if its better/worse than E3.5D?
