I am 26years old and have been struggling the last 2-3years with some kind of hormonal imbalance. As u all know its nearly impossible to find a doctor who know something or even listen to you. I really need your help guys.
I am 190cm 95kg with low fat %
Ive been training my whole life and never used any kind of steroids before.
- Spots/acne on shoulders/chest ( before this never hade a single spot on body)
- No morning wood anymore
- Very very low libido
- Pretty bad ED problems
- Sore muscles several days after workout
- Very Exessive sweating during workout
I did a bloodwork last year and noticed Testosterone level at 13nmol ( quite low for my age) so i started to do more bloodworks and trying to help my self.
First bloodwork: Juni 2017 ( 9:00 in the morning)
S-Testosterone: 13nmol/L <10-35>
S-Estradiol : 117 pmol/L < <150 > ( sensitive test not avaliable)
S-SHBG : 31nmol/L <10-57>
S-Progesterone : 1.0nmol/L < 0.9-3.9 > low
S-DHEAS : 3.9 µmol/L <7.6-17.4> Really low
S-Cortisol : 458nmol < ? ? >
LH : 2.7 IE/L <1.5-9.3>
FSH : 2.4 IE/L <1.4-18>
After this i was thinking testosterone was low and i injected 15mg Testosterone Base ( suspension) daily for 2 weeks, just to see if things felt better but strangely it didnt make any difference on libido/morning wood etc, i know suspension is not gonna give me stable levels etc reason i used it was i wanted it out of my system fast if it didnt work. maybe it all converted to e2 i dont know.
some months after this i did new bloodworks (09.00 in the morning)
S-Testosterone: 15nmol/L <10-35>
S-Estradiol : 129 pmol/L < <150 > ( sensitive test not avaliable)
S-DHEAS : 4.2 µmol/L <7.6-17.4>
TSH : 1.9 mIE/L <0.4-4.0>
Free T3 : 4.9 pmol/L <3.3-6.0>
Free T4 : 16 pmol/L <10-22>
after this i tried to supplement 25mg DHEA daily for over a month and then did new bloodwork but my low level of DHEA was unchanged.
3rd bloodworks: (09.00 in morning)
S-Testosterone: 16nmol/L <10-35>
S-Estradiol : 114 pmol/L < <150 > ( sensitive test not avaliable)
S-Cortisol : 428nmol < ? ? >
S-DHEAS : 4.4 µmol/L <7.6-17.4>
S-Progesterone : 0.7 nmol/L <0.9-3.9>
As u can see i am low on DHEA and progesterone, and after this when supplementing DHEA did not do anything for me i decided to try hcg and so i did, 500iu E3D for 30days and then pulled new bloodwork, it may helped bring up progesterone but otherwise only brining E2 Up.
4rd bloodwork (on hcg): (09.00 in morning)
S-Testosterone: 17nmol/L <10-35>
S-Estradiol : 157 pmol/L < <150 > ( sensitive test not avaliable)
S-Progesterone : 1.1 nmol/L <0.9-3.9>
S-DHEAS : 3.6 µmol/L <7.6-17.4>
S-Cortisol : 446nmol < ? ? >
After this i quit hcg and waited 2months, then i tried 0.25 Arimidex e3d to see if it could make any difference. It did make my libido better but i stopped it after only 2 dosages because of getting a sore nipple and a sore “rock” at they side of the nipple. Cant understand how that can happen because Adex is supposed to exactly the opposite then giving high e2 symptoms.
And here i am now and really dont know what to do, all help is very appreciated.
I have been thinking if i may be suffering from adrenal fatique or some kind of pregnelone steal because my DHEA and Progesterone levels has been so low from start. But as i said i am desperate here and need all tips/help i can get on this.
