I’m a 42 yr old male, fairly fit and active. I recently did bloodwork to test my T levels because after a year of strength training, I’ve built almost no lean muscle plus I have a low sex drive.
The test came back low at 262 ng/dL. Doc wouldn’t prescribe TRT though so I did my research for a few weeks and found my own source for Test Cyp. I am taking 200mg every 5 days and this week will be my 5th week into the cycle. This is my first cycle.
I had lab work done again this week and got my results back today. This time I included a Oestradiol test. As expected, my T was high at 1226.00 ng/dL but my estrogen level was low at 10.00 pg/mL (normal is 11 - 43). Alot of guys worry about elevated estrogen levels due to aromatase but mine seem to not be affected. Can anyone explain why? I want my estrogen to be normal, not low. Does this mean I need to take higher doses of T?
