I have been on Nebido for about 6 months and just received my first blood test results. Unfortunately, my doctor refuses to test E and that will never change (don’t ask, I live in a country with social medicine and patient has no say in treatment), so I just have to figure things out best I can with incomplete information.
The good news is that my T is 840 ng/dl, which is near the top of the range, even though it was two months after my injection. I have noticed a lot more erections and slightly better gains in the gym (though probably still not as good as say 10 years ago when I was 30 with healthy natural T production).
The bad news is that my Free T appears to be my much much lower, at 47.5pmol/L in a range of 30.2-190. I figure I should at least be in the middle of that range.
Other blood tests I have taken that included SHBG never showed any troubles with that hormone. Is it reasonable to figure I probably have high E2 now?
Any opinions on what you would do in my position would be greatly appreciated. I generally do feel somewhat better than I did before TRT. But I would say my libido is still on the low side and therefore my most pressing goal with TRT has not been achieved yet.
