Current numbers look good, right? The issue is I still feel the same, if not worse. Unexpected weight gain, low libido, sleep sucks, low energy, low motivation. I would think that this dramatic of a change in labs would be noticeable? Between these labs, for 11 weeks, I began a protocol of 200mg/ml Test cyp .40ml 2x per week, HCG 400IU 2x per week. For thyroid I’m on 2grains armour/30mcg cytomel per day. I think it’s worth mentioning that before I started testosterone injections, over the last 2 years I tried clomid, which didn’t help. Until these latest labs, I’ve always had very low free test, very LOW estradiol, and very HIGH SHBG.
So I see the testosterone has skyrocketed. Perhaps too high?? My estradiol has been BELOW standard range for 2 years, but now is actually ABOVE range. SHBG seems to be surprisingly lower, although I’m not sure why? I take Boron, but I’ve done that for awhile, and it never had that big of impact.
My consultation with my provider is scheduled 2 weeks from now. Outside of telling him how I’m feeling, I want to be armed with the right questions. I also want to get some views from the community here.
