I have been reading the forum for awhile in attempts to educate myself and would really like KSman to help me out. Long story short is that I am 46 y.o. and started on TRT in Feb 2016 secondary to what I now realize were low T symptoms. Mostly low sex drive, lethargy, lack of motivation, lack of muscle mass despite working out, etc…I have experienced a very positive result with the treatment to date. It has definitely improved all of the symptoms listed above.
My initial morning reading was a total T of 129 and my second morning reading a week later was 320. I was given an initial dose of Test of 200 and felt like a new man almost immediately. I am going to a clinic that only does TRT. I have been going one time per week and receiving 160 test each week. Here are my numbers on 3-10-16 one month after starting.
Total test: 822
Free T: 16.5
I was then kept at the same dose and added Anastrozole 1 day after the test injection. I did this for 6 weeks and re-tested. Here are the numbers on 5-5-16.
Total T: 927
Free T: 24.1
I am still much better than when I started, but don’t feel as good as I initially felt. I know that one time per week dosage isn’t optimal, but that’s all they offer and not sure that I can talk them into just ordering the testosterone and allowing me to do it myself.
- Should I split the AI dosage and take it 2x/week? Would that help bring my E down?
1.Should I possibly ask to decrease the T dosage. The labs were done 7 days after the injection so I’m assuming my T was much higher earlier in the week. Maybe too high and therefore converting too much into E?
2.Haven’t talked to my Dr. about HCG. Would this maybe help my E and are there any side effects of the HCG that I should be aware of ?
Thanks for any help!
