Looking for guidance - new blood work

M46, 5’10", 155lbs, Intramuscular Test Cypionate, 32mg EOD, no other supporting injections / pills.

So I just got my 2nd blood test back 8 weeks after my dosage reduction (40mg EOD --> 32mg EOD). It looks like my Estradiol and my Testosterone has dropped but not by much and they are still pretty high.

I’m still not feeling normalized / great; some fatigue, soreness (but I think it’s from using dumbells), agitation / irritability, quick to anger, and my sleep is still broken up during the night. Some of these could be due to something else but I’m not sure what. I have seen some gains; exercising 6 days a week; one day cardio, one day lifting. Diet is clean. No drugs / alcohol. No major stress at this point except for broken sleep.

It also looks like my Free T4 is trending downwards (pituitary problem?) and Hematocrit is trending upwards. Let me know what you think… Thank you in advance for your experiences and insights.

I am wondering if I should lower my dosage yet again and if so, by how much?
