I have recently started TRT after a 12 week Testosterone cycle. All went great but after it ended the recovery was taking too long, even with the proper PCT, and I also realized that for my professional athletic goals it would be in my best interests to just start TRT and blast if/when needed.
I am 28 years old, 6 feet and around 200 pounds with 16% bf.
I started 200 mg/week of Test E for Trt. My libido and weight jumped immediately so I was very happy but one week later the libido died so I guessed my test was underdosed. I went and did bloodwork which took 2 weeks for me to get the results.
Meanwhile I doubled the dose to 400 mg/week to see what happens. Libido improved drastically in a few days, stayed like that for around 2 weeks then started to die again.
I received my bloodwork yesterday. My T was totally legit, on 200 mg/ week my free T was 60 pg/ml and the end of the reference range was 25… So more than twice the normal amount… My E2 was 74 pg/ml with the end of the reference range being 44… It was non sensitive estradiol test because it s the only one that I can do in my country.
So now , when I saw that the Test was legit I started to taper the dose back to 200 mg. Even less so I can be in the reference range.
My question is what is wrong with my libido? Why does it jump when I start or increase Test only to disappear after some time? Is the aromatisation getting to me and I should use some AI to lower it?
