My E2 is 56pg/ml on 40mg EOD injections, my SHBG is 8 at it’s lowest. I’m interested to see if injecting 20mg every day would lower my E2 enough to make a difference in overall positive effects from TRT.
I don’t like using an AI simply because I’m an over-responder and using it in the past had always crashed my estrogen and I’d have to use superphysiological doses to lower my E2 into the “optimal range”. Also using an AI, in my experience, had given me chest pains and completely annihilated my cholesterol.
Need some anecdotal experience from anyone who had ran ED injections (or is currently running) and share how it’s affected their E2, total testosterone, SHBG, etc. (doesn’t have to be all of them, E2 alone or testosterone alone would work too) vs running the standard twice a week/EOD. Also, your experience doesn’t have to be numbers based; if injecting ED had a positive impact on overall mood/libido/energy vs any other protocol, please share.
