Its been 4 months on TRT started with T.Cypionate 150mg IM weekly for 1st month.
Labs after 1 month of treatment
Free T 243
Total T 1094
Estradiol 31 (7-50 range)
HCT 48.9 (37.5-51)
Went to a new doc and HCG was recommended at 250 2x weekly. To be honest I dont use it hardly at all. Lucky to do it once a week.
I started to get acne so I lowered my dose from 150mg to 120mg T, Cypionate weekly and split injection to 2x per week 60mg each injection. No more acne! Still inconsistent with HCG injections.
Labs after 3 months of lower injecion amount of T and spiliting the dose showed no change in Free T or Total T, but HCT and Estradiol increased.
Free T 237
Total T 1194
Estradiol 59.2 (7-50)
HCT 52.4 (37.5-51)
I have a couple concerns. I thought Estradiol would stay lower injecting 2x per week at a lower dose and mine actually increased.
- Is my Estradiol too high? Will it continue to climb?
- Yes or No on donating blood
- If I begin HCG 250mg 2x per week will my Estradiol increaase even more?
What should I change if anything?
