E2 is only reported with one significant digit which is useless.
Try to get labs via Labcorp or Quest.
Please do not create another thread for your case, keep everything here. Need to not have your details lost and need to avoid duplication of effort.
Your pellets created differing T levels as expected and we can see E2 tracking that as expected, but the single digit reporting sucks.
Testing LH/FSH repeatedly on TRT is so brain dead, or your doctor is sucking you dry on lab charges. Testing FT and SHBG repeatedly is also stupid, they tell the same story.
Guys do great on 100mg T per week when E2 is managed near E2=22pg/ml. [You can’t work with your current lab.] Many on 200mg T simple cannot get balanced. With these goals you should get good consistent libido, mood, energy, fat loss and good fat patterns.
Be careful to not have blind trust in that doctor, too many red flags already.

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.
