Not Feeling Great. Anything Noticeable in Bloodwork?

I’m currently taking 120mg of T ethanate divided in 2 doses a week (60mg Mon & 60mg Thursday) and .125 mg of anastrozole 1/week. I’ve been on this protocol for 12 weeks and not liking the results.

Currently my libido is nonexistent, not feeling good overall (low drive, lacking confidence, etc.)

Is there anything that stands out as possibly needing improvement in my recent bloodwork?

I was thinking of upping my dose to 140mg/week.

Thanks

Try dropping the anastrozole first. Many people are sensitive to it, and also many people need a higher than range E2 when their androgen levels are high.

Your Free T is underwhelming and believe you need to bump the dosage up 20-30mg.

Thanks for the suggestion. I just haven’t had much luck either with dropping the AI. But I appreciate the feedback.

If that’s the case, I would try upping to 140mg/week like you suggested. Assuming you’re not on any other meds like SSRIs that kill libido?

FT is still pretty low. SHBG must be on the higher side. I’d up your dose

Another vote for increasing the dose. Get free testosterone over 200, or higher if necessary.

I would bump up the T. There seems to be a difference between mid range FT, and upper range.

I take 200mg of test a week when on TRT only. I had the same feelings as u till I started micro dosing daily. I use 1/7th of a 1cc bottle in a 1/2" insulin needle in the delt every morning. Has made a huge difference. I only keep the anastrozole on hand for when I feel I need it like something anit right. Bottoming out your Estro. With the anastrozole Can be worse then it being high, knock libedo and function straight into the dirt

I appreciate all the feedback. It seems my initial thought of increasing my weekly dose is a good call.
I’m going to bump it up to 150mg/week and give that a few months.
