Hi guys. I posted this in the steroid forum at first but figured it wouldn't hurt to post it here as well as some guys on trt might be having the same issues.
Im currently cruising on 500mg of test a week and having some libido/erection issues.
What would be the proper blood work to do to figure out what is causing these issues?
Ive gotten e2 and prolactin tested before and my e2 was 89 and I played around with the adex to no avail. My prolactin was a bit elevated as well and I ran two weeks of caber but that didnt seem to help either. Ive had some regular cbc/general labs and everything checked out fairly normal. My mean corpuscular hemoglobin/albumin/and alka phosphate were slightly elevated. I tested for TSH and free thyroxine and they came out normal as well. Ill list the labs Ive had done below for reference.
