Now, some of you may call bullshit, but I ask you to suspend disbelief for 5 minutes.
Are there any studies out there showing a correlation with HCG and Gyno, independent of E2?
I started TRT without the slightest bit of Gyno, but it’s slowly developed and is getting worse.
My labs over the past year. Testosterone is every 3.5 days. HCG every other day.
62.5mg T + 250 IU HCG - 821ng/dl T - <5pg/ml e2 (I crashed my e2 due to gyno scare)
62.5mg T + 150iu HCG - 721ng/dl T - 18.25pg/ml e2 (No AI)
75mg T + 125iu HCG - 780ng/dl T - 20.7pg/ml e2 (No AI)
75mg T + 70iu HCG - 650ng/dl T - 13pg/ml e2 (No AI)
250mg T + 70iu HCG - 3600ng/dl T - 18.25pg/ml (Cycle, so small AI dose)
As you can see, my e2 has always been under control.
My Gyno is 100% progressing. I’ve had people feel it, just to be sure I’m not going mad, and they’re also sure it’s gyno. I’ve used Ralox long term and it makes zero difference. I’ve reduced my HCG dose to what is considered a low dose.
I think I remember seeing a comment a while back about some talks of HCG receptors in breast tissue - an abnormality in some people.
I’m at a loss with what to do. I’m 25 so really don’t like the idea of not using it, as I’m unsure of future fertility goals. I also know it has other benefits outside of that. I’m going to cut it for a while and see what happens, but this isn’t ideal.
Does anyone know anything further on the topic, or have experience with this themselves? Appreciate any input.
