I just started adding HCG to my TRT and the first time I injected 250cc of HCG on my low T day, I got an Estradiol spike. I’m injection both HCG and T Cyp sub-q. My labs are in line with TT 1247 (348-1297)FT 21 (7.2 - 24) Estradiol 28 (< 39 pg/ml).
I’m injecting T Cyp .25ml E3D and was doing well on that dose prior to adding the HCG good libido etc. But as I mention, when I added the HCG and I got that estradiol spike. I countered it with .25 Anastrozole and was fine in a few days.
When the estradiol spike occurs does that mean that “I” created more testosterone and as a result my T levels went to high and therefore, I got the estradiol spike? If so, would I be better off lowering my T Cyp from .25ml to .20 ml and inject HCG at 250cc on my low day,or keeping my T at .25ml since I was doing good on that dose, prior to adding the HCG, and use a lower HCG dose?
My goal by adding the HCG is to increase size and volume, since I was on T alone for a while.
I realize dialing an individual has many variables, but I would appreciate any insight so I can have the best chance of dialing in my dose.
I appreciate any advice you guys can offer.
