Hey everyone. Not to bore you with the minutiae, but I switched to a new doc/clinic and they put me on a new protocol based on my labs. My old doc was (what seemed to me) very green to TRT, refused to look at anything other than total and free t, never checked my E2 levels, etc, had me on 80mg/week (odd dose) and overall was very conservative. For reference, I am 36 and relatively fit (6’ 220# about 15% bf, workout (crossfit) 4 to 5x week).
So, new doc is in the ‘I want to optimize you’ line of thinking. I’m good with that. He takes labs and based on what they see they put me on 120/wk test cypionate, 500iu HCG and 0.5 anastrozole. I started their protocol with the following regimen-
Sunday 250iu HCG
Monday 60mg cyp
Thursday 250iu HCG
Friday 60mg cyp
Saturday .5 anastrozole
After a month I had new labs drawn and got the following results (apparently i’m pretty sensitive to anastrozole)
T (Total) 1089 ng/dL T (Free) Serum 174 pg/mL E2 <5 Sex Horm Binding Glob, Serum 58.6
So, we decided to stop the anastrozole for the time being (will recheck at the end of the month). I brought up that my joints were feeling achy, and my libido was not really there, which from the looks of it was due to the low e2. We will see where I am at in a few weeks.
I’ve attached my full labs (anonymized) for review. How’s it look?
