Hi guys…so I just got some blood work done and i’m very concerned about the low LH & FSH and of course the high E2. I will give as much info as I currently have. I do plan on seeing a doctor next week that my dad went to and he was put on test and arimidex so i’m hopeful that he isn’t an Idiot doctor. My current thoughts are to ask for HCG and/or clomid to increase my LH/FSH and Lower E2? I’m not sure that I need test at all. If you have time to read this, please let me know your thoughts.
-age - 29, Turning 30 in November 2016
-height - 5’ 9 1/2"
-waist - 34"
-weight - 189lb
-describe body and facial hair -
Not too much on my chest. Cant exactly grow a full beard but it’s not too bad, still kinda thick. Head hair has always been good and thick.
-describe where you carry fat-
Lower abdomen and love handles. Some on chest but probably gyno.
-health conditions, symptoms [history] -
I had a good amount of gyno removed Sept 2013. Got E2 checked after surgery and it was at 30.9 (ND-39). I had gyno since puberty and I believe taking Tren when I was 21 made it worse.
-Rx and OTC drugs, any hair loss drugs or prostate drugs ever-
Ran Tren prohormone when I was 21 like a dummy. Ran it for 6 weeks and used Tamoxifen + Natural test booster for PCT (young and dumb).

PSA, Prostate Specific Antigen
4 weeks ago I started to “cut” and changed to a Keto diet. My Daily Calorie needs are ~2900-3000 calories and I am consuming 2500 calories with 30 min low intensity cardio approximate 3-4 times a week. Carbs are 20g or less, Protein is 170g daily, and Fat is around 200g daily, whatever adds up to 2500 depending on carbs consumed. Usually split into 5 meals and rarely into 4 meals. All calories come from Food and no supplements are being taken except for a little fiber and multivitamin. Water is at 1gal daily.
Before this keto diet I basically “bulked” for about 4 months and ate 3500-3700 calories daily at about 25% pro / 20% fat / 55% carbs. Lots of Chicken, brown rice, oatmeal, sweet potatoes, gold potatoes, egg whites, mct oil, nuts and avocado.
If you’re familiar with it, during bulk I did Arnolds Blueprint to Mass with a few slight variations at times if I got bored. I dont do 6 days straight then rest on the 7th like the blueprint says. I just go in order whenever I get a chance to workout. Usually 4 days per week.
Now that I’m cutting i’m using Arnolds Blueprint to Cutting.
-testes ache, ever, with a fever?-
I do remember them aching before but maybe only twice in my life (mid 20s) and it was completely random. They didn’t hurt for very long, maybe a few minutes. No fever at the same time.
-how have morning wood and nocturnal erections changed-
Morning wood still happens every morning. Nocturnal still pretty good. I have been noticing that sometimes there’s no desire to have sex with my gf before bed though…when I do remember in the past it was a MUST. I have no problem getting and keeping an erection.
