I’m a 42 year old male who is on third month of HRT. I had tried it once before( 6 months ago) but had to abort due to a clueless doctor who did not no anything about using an AI with Testosterone. I ended up with some small gyno behind right nipple that still has not gone away completely.
I have read this site and educated myself and now giving HRT a second try with a doctor friend of mine who is allowing me some input on my treatment. Initial blood tests showed T total 280, free T 6.8ng/dl and estradial at 17. All other tests in normal range.
We started with 2 ml per day of cream (100mg per ml) and arimidex 2 mg per week on divided doses and 250 iu HCG every third day. After 5 weeks I tested and Total T was 1707(weird huh?) Free T was 51.0 ng/dl and estradiol was 13. I was tested about 3 hours after putting on cream. My questions for you all are the following:
Should I cut my cream in half to bring T levels down or did putting on the cream so close to testing make it high?
Can I take a SERM like Nolvadex with an AI like arimidex to combat my little bit of gyno. note: I started novadex at 40 mg per day two days ago and lump is much smaller already!!
A liitle concerned about my E2 levels being to low with nolvadex and arimidex being ran at same time, input on this would be great.
I work out diligently and eat a very clean paleo type diet. I also feel very good on this routine so far. Good energy libido etc. Thanks for listening to me, and look forward to hearing your responses.
