I have been prescribed TRT. Cypionate, anastrazole, hcg .
My blood tests are attached.
I have read this forum board and found some answers to my question below. Would love some feedback. Probably spent 4-5 hours watching videos and reading trying to wrap my head around this and take responsibility for my well being. I trust my doctor but I am trying to form a 2nd opinion: in a week or two I am paying for a consult via dr crissler (pioneer in trt) to see what he proposes .
- My levels are 184 serum and 3.5 free.
- I am taking 100mg per week
3 my estradiol levels are at 24.4
- I am supposed to take 2 tablets .5mg anastrazole day 1 and 2 after my shot. That’s 1mg weekly of Anas.
- I also have to take hcg (bag says 11000iu along with it day1 and 2 after trt shot. Not sure what the dosage comes out to on this. Since it’s a powder and etc. is says mix 5.5ml diluent and inject 25 on insulin. Not sure what the dosage is but I understand how much I’m supposed to mix.
I am definitely going to dicuss microdosing with my provider but that’s in 3 weeks.i hear this helps keep estrogen in check.
With all that said here is the question. I am curious about my estrogen. Since the serum has not been fully introduced into my body, I am afraid I will lower my estrogen to low. It seems every post or video discusses solutions for men with low or high estrogen pre trt. Mine is normal. Also, I have read on this forum and others that I might not even need to take the pills until I take my first blood test several weeks in the future. Or if I have symptoms. HeLp me understand if I should take less or none at all.
I took cypionate many years ago for a month and decided against taking it past the -month. I felt fantastic on the 100mg dosage and never took any supplements along with it. Zero side effects.
Anyways let me know what is suggested. I don’t want to crash my estrogen. I feel it’s too much . From research I’ve read that most men on .5 dosages run it with 200mg cyp weekly.
