While Oxandrolone does not aromatize–>E2 it can affect the liver and interfere with your liver’s ability to clear estrogens and thus indirectly can increase estrogens.
You do not need Oxandrolone!
AST and ALT labs while on Oxandrolone will be of interest.
You need to refine your protocol via lab work and lab work needs to represent a protocol. You messed that up.
Most need 1mg anastrozole for every 100mg T ester. But a few are anastrozole over-responders who need 1/4th of that amount to avoid crashing E2. So you E2 problems appear to be from under dosing anastrozole.

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.

I can be a bit abrupt in my replies and recommendations. I have a lot of ground to cover as this forum has become much more active in the last two years. I can’t follow threads that go deep over time. You need to respond to all of my points and requests as soon as possible before you fall off of my radar. The worse problems are guys who ignore issues re thyroid, body temperatures, history of iodized salt. Please do not piss people off saying that lab results are normal, we need lab number and ranges.
The value that you get out of this process and forum depends on your effort and performance. The bulk of your learning is reading/studying the suggested stickies.
