Help with My TRT (Nolvadex)


#1

Hello dear friends
My question’s about nolvadex during trt
Im from algeria and i was an amateur bodybuilder
After 4 years of the street juice i stoped taking gear … and i just want to be normal
I went to a doctor and he puted me on trt
250 testosterone enanthate /evrey 10 days
I feel good only in the first 2 days
After that i lose libido mood and feel depressed ( low t sypmtoms) in the rest of the week
I tought that is from estrogen …
And i added by myself a 5mg nolvadex EOD
Which mean 20mg/ week

It was good for the 2 months and now i start losing libido again and get The symptoms

Doctors here are not professionals they don’t know about AI or things like that
They give people an injection evrey 10 days
And stop. Hhhhh

I always ask myself if 20 mg nolvadex per week can crash my e2 ?

Also my joints hurt me bad this last days

Im sorry i didnt give any blood tests

But your answers about that 20 mg a week can be helpful

Thank you so much for this website

When you inject every 10 days, T levels get very high then fall low. So your levels of E2 in you blood change greatly. E2 is from FT–>E2 and that rate depends on your FT levels that are changing. You need anastrozole to control FT–>E2, but that dose needs to match your FT levels. That is mostly impossible because your T levels change greatly.

Nolvadex is a SERM and SERMs do not decrease E2, SERMS increase E2.

Your protocol is bad.

I think that you create a lot of E2 and T levels drop then you feel bad with high E2 and falling T. Your E2 cannot be crashing.

Are you able to self-inject? Best to inject T twice a week.

The stickies below will provide you with needed information.

Please read the stickies found here: About the T Replacement Category

  • things that damage your hormones
  • protocol for injections
  • finding a TRT doc

Evaluate your overall thyroid function by checking oral body temperatures as per the thyroid basics sticky. Thyroid hormone fT3 is what gets the job done and it regulates mitochondrial activity, the source of ATP which is the universal currency of cellular energy. This is part of the body’s temperature control loop. This can get messed up if you are iodine deficient. In many countries, you need to be using iodized salt. Other countries add iodine to dairy or bread.

Thanks, I prefer beer! :beers:

0.5ml is 125mg?
Not all T esters have the same mg/ml.
