I'm 24, went in to the Doc last year with all the tell tale signs of low T with the exception of sex drive, I never had trouble getting an erection. I went in and had blood work done, my TT and FT were about that of a 100 year old woman, first test was in the mid 200's (250-1100ng/dl) second blood work came back somewhere around 110. Doc didn't want to put me on TRT because of my age, wanted to send me to a endo who had a six month wait to get an appointment. I immediately called up a local doc who specialized in TRT, immediately put me on TRT, 200mg/wk test cyp.
This particular doctor wouldn't prescribe adex or other AI's but instead wrote me a script for nolva. I sourced some adex from a research company and began taking that asap. about 12 weeks into TRT I really wasn't feeling that great, my E2 was elevated (may have been bunk adex) and my acne was out of control. I also couldn't get this doctor to prescribe me Adex or HCG and my nuts were shrinking. I decided to discontinue TRT and use the Nolva for PCT. During this time I would look for another doctor to pursue TRT with on a better protocol.
Fast forward about a year and I'm feeling way better than I used to but had been suffering from some trouble getting a really good erection, no morning wood and some brain fog through out the day, I figured my T levels were wrecked again so I went in to my doctor to get some blood drawn, levels came back:
TT: 594 (250-1100ng/dl)
FT: 129.5 (35-155 pg/ml
E2: 55 (< or = pg/ml)
So somehow my T has managed to make some kind of masive recovery however my E2 is pretty seriously elevated. I should also point out that this blood work was done on a Mon morning after binge drinking all day saturday, and getting almost no sleep between sat and mon. I binge drank all day sat on the beach, ate and drank almost nothing, slept for about 6 hrs sat night and slept 3 hrs mon morning at a girl friends house until I went straight to the doc mon morning for bloodwork at 10. So I would think that under normal circumstances my T levels would be way better.
My question are, what would have caused my Total T and Free T to recover so well from pre TRT? Also why would my E2 be so elevated?
The doctor (same doc as before) now precribes Adex and wrote me a script for some, telling me to take 1mg mon/wed/fri. Now, seeing as im not on TRT and just trying to reduce E2, this is gonig to trash my E2... If i'm not mistaken, 1mg a WEEK should cut my E2 in half correct? Assuming I'm not an under or over responder 1mg a week should put me at the ideal level of aout 22pg/ml. Should I obtain a pill cutter and take .5mg mon and .5mg thurs or cut the pill into thirds and take mon/wed/fri? The problem I see here is the pills are tiny and going to be kind of hard to cut.
