Obviously it varies, but is there potential for improvement going to an EOD system?
I find the day AFTER I inject I feel much better than the day I inject, and am trying to piece together why, and whether going to EOD would be worth the added work each week. Try it to find out obviously, but thought I'd ask the question.
Try it and be your own expert about how you feel. I don't think that it makes a big difference VS twice per week from a T point of view. But it is hard to state more not knowing your AI and hCG protocols. The half life of those items really drive the need for an EOD protocol.
But you never post in your original thread and we thus know nothing about you in this new thread.
T levels peak the next day, E2 peak follows. The fact that you feel changes with twice per week does indicate that your T levels are swinging significantly.
I was on biweekly - felt like crap - major hormone swings then changed to weekly - some good days, but still mostly felt like crap. then changed to E3D - more good days, but still had issues and side effects from going too high. then changed to EOD - feeling really good. no mood swings, swelling, etc.
I manage great. I have levels of 700-800 taking 20-30mg EOD + 200-300iu HCG EOD.
Before I was fluctuating wildly and unable to control all of the side effects of the hormone rollercoaster.
I was on 2mg of Arimidex DAILY and one point, but was able to reduce Arimidex down to .25mg EOD once I stopped taking DHEA and I reduced my T-Cyp shots down from the insane amount of 100mg E3D.
Once I went to the EOD day schedule, I stopped it completely. I happen to be one of those people who clears things out of their system very quickly - so before I would spike and then crash. Now it is mostly smooth sailing.
My theory is that people only need Arimidex if they are pushing their level of T above their personal genetic optimal point which they do to try and make up for some other deficiency (like low cortisol, poor thyroid function, low Vitamin D levels, etc.) but excess T ultimately can't fix those other issues on its own (and excessive T just causing a host of problems on its own - like excess aromatase, excess DHT, etc.) which people try and compensate for by taking Arimidex which has its own issues and limitations (not working to stop testicular aromatase, but possibly lowering brain levels of estrogen too far).
