I took the DIM for 6 days and dropped my dose to 8mg to mitigate E2, it seems to have worked. I stopped DIM because I noticed I started to pee as much as I used to. There were days when my E2 was higher when I’d drink my usual gallon of water and I’d only pee 3-4 times a day, not normal. Depression has lifted but I feel emotionally blunted, I cant feel much at all. I’ve heard low E2 can cause this but mine is not exceptionally low. Honestly though, I’d rather feel this way than be dealing with anxiety or depression. Morning and nighttime wood are non-existent. Libido is there but my penis is not responding to how I feel. I’m not too worried about it right now. Cognition has improved and so has memory.
Anyone have any idea where I go from here? I’m definitely feeling better than I was but obviously having no arousal or emotions is not going to work long-term. Should I just wait 6-8 weeks since I just lowered my dose to make another change? Also, wondering if anyone had input on my ferritin being on the lower side of the spectrum.
@roscoe88 you asked to see the new labs at 8mg ED, subQ.
