I’ve been on TRT since February of this year, when my TT was 41 ng/dl from a range of 242 - 827 ng/dl.
I inject 40mg of Test-Cyp SubQ 3 x per week, and on Nov 24 my TT level was 570 ng/dl from the same range as above.
On Nov 21st, I began taking .5 mg of Arimidex 3 x per week, 24 hours after each Test-Cyp injection . My E2 level on Nov. 24 was 92.6 pg/ml from a range of < 42.5 pg/ml.
I just did some blood work today, and my Total Testosterone level is down to 412.1 ng/dl from the same range as above.
I don’t have the results yet from today’s E2 test.
But why would Arimidex LOWER my testosterone? And by so much?
Just got the results of my Estradiol test from yesterday, and while my Total Testosterone dropped from 570.6 ng/dl from a range of 242-827 ng/dl on Nov. 24th to 412.1 ng/dl from the same range, as tested yesterday, my Estradiol also DROPPED from 92.6 pg/ml from a range of < 42.5 pg/ml on Nov. 24th to a level of 67.0 pg/ml from the same range, as tested yesterday.
So I guess what I have really is Arimidex, but for some reason, my TT levels have also dropped. Or maybe it is because I’ve drawn the blood at different times after my most recent Test-Cyp injection.
But DAMN it’s nice to see my E2 levels going down! Not nearly enough of course, but it’s a start!
