Been on TRT 1 year. 75mg test e E3D (175mgpw) used to put me at t level of around 800 and E2 of 30-40.
No AI. Good quality brand of test-e.
Recently my anxiety has been horrendous. I got my levels checked and my E2 was at 17 (along with a slight increase in test level). Some people may do well at this level but for me it causes lots of the usual signs of low E2 including anxiety. Feel like shit basically.
Now I was taking zinc and a few other natural supplements that have been shown to have a natural AI effect (reservatrol/ grape seed extract ) and a few others that I believe also had an effect (very high dose vit C, ashwaganda).
I’ve stopped these now but I still feel like shit. I have 2 options:
Have a larger test dose than usual to get my E2 level back up.
Wait for my E2 level to rise naturally.
If I go for the 2nd option how long does it normally take to rise?
I guess this post is also a warning of how well some of the natural supp’s work for lowering E2. It’s a ball-ache as I take zinc and high dose vitamin C for my immune system and now have to give them up.
Went into TRT worrying about keeping E2 down…I’m now in the unusual situation of having it too low at 175mg per week!
