So I’ve been on injections for the past 2 years. Pellets for 3 years before that. I will say I felt best on pellets. It must have been that slow continuous release I got from them. My current protocol for the last 6 weeks has been everyday injections of cypionate. 25mg per day, 175mg per week. No AI. HCG 250IU’s twice per week. Everything for the most part is good on daily injections except for libido. It seems to come and go. I started T mainly for the mental benefits. It seemed to really help my anxiety and bouts of depression… which it still helps greatly with. One thing is, the calmer and the more I have a sense of well being on testosterone, the lower my libido is. I almost think its the estrogen that gives me the calm feeling, but also decreases the libido. My last bloodwork had my sensitive E2 at 115 and I was doing 100mg twice a week(200mg total), no AI. I felt super chill and mentally great but low libido. I had no idea my E2 was that high. I’ve had low E2 from an AI and I can say that definitely increases my anxiety ALOT!! No Bueno!!
Sooooo….does anyone agree with the high E2 causing calmness but decreased libido?
