Im 32 years old on TRT and I’m hoping for some advice on how i could go about raising my e2.
I have been on trt to treat secondary hypergonadism (cause unknown) for nearly 2 years.
I have been VERY slow to respond however I am now on 1000mg Test U (nibedo) every 6 weeks
My test is still way lower than where id like it to be but my endo is telling me its as good as i can get as he cannot increase the Nibedo frequency.
My current Serum T is 14.7 nmol (424 ngdl)
right at the low end of “normal”
I am convinced that the main cause of most of my sides is actually low E2 - for pretty much the whole of the last 2 years my E2 is non existent <18 pmol range 99-192
I am not, or have ever been, using any anti-e medication
My Endo, like most in the UK don’t seem to be very experienced with TRT in young guys as I am continually being told “you don’t need to worry about low E2”
I know everyone seems to be more concerned with lowering rather than raising so I appreciate that its not a common problem to address. After researching I have come up with a few options that may work.
1 - Get my testosterone dosage higher, either by working with the doc or taking matters into my own hand. I am guessing that if I were to add another 100 - 200 mg test per week for a few months then it should push me to the higher end of “normal” and in turn I should convert some of that test into E2. I
If I raise the testosterone levels high enough to get my e2 in range, when I stop the additional test, will my e2 fall back to the levels I am at currently ?
2 - Use HCG. I have read many reports of people using HCG within a TRT protocol to keep the boys working and in turn using HCG will raise my E2
The main drawbacks I have with this one is that HCG is not available in the UK as part of a prescribed TRT so like option 1, i’d be taking things into my own hands but I’m not familiar with HCG use and I’m ideally looking to take something that will raise my E2 and keep it there.
3 - Taking DHEA. I have read a few articles with people claiming success in raising E2 by taking DHEA 50-100mg per day
4 - Adding some D-bol. I know this is a bit leftfield but I would assume that taking a high aromatising compound like D-Bol it would defiantly raise my E2, again though if I stop taking the D-Bol will my levels drop to their current level? I was thinking about taking 15-30mg of Dbol for 10 days and then testing my blood, if E2 looks good (and I feel good) then discontinue and hope the e2 stays where it is.
I know most guys are trying to lower theirs but trust me, low E2 sucks and I’m getting so fed up of feeling like this.
Any thoughts or ideas would be greatly appreciated.
