So I’m 40, 8 weeks into TRT at 80mg twice per week. Feeling really good. Had about 2 weeks in. The middle where I felt like I reverted and then went back up to feeling like I did 10 years ago again. Went into this with TT 460 and SHBG at 67. No HCG, no AI. Prior to this, I was on Clomid monotherapy for 8 years and slowly started to work less and less as my SHBG crept up. Cal with Defy this afternoon. I’m a little wary about jumping to an AI as on Clomid 0.1mg per 1.5 Anastrozole per 1.5 weeks put my E2 at 22. I respond strongly.
Overall, my cholesterol, glucose, and IGF numbers really improved. It’s the E2 that probably needs to be discussed, but perhaps I can move to more frequent injections as my SHBG has come down as I do feel peaks and valleys between shots. Also, any concern about my Hematocrit? It’s gone from 47.3 pre TRT to 48.6. I’ve read many stories about this and worried this will be a limiting factor for me. As always, thanks!
