I’ve been on TRT for about 6 months now. My hormone levels look a whole lot better, and I feel better too, but not nearly as much as I think I should. I don’t feel like my treatment is quite dialed in yet, or maybe there is something else going on besides low T. I’m hoping that some of the experts here can give me some advice on where to go from here.
My main complaint is energy levels. Before TRT I was dead half the day. I feel much better now, but I’m still pretty tired most of the time, despite having better sleep. Bedroom performance was never a problem, even with low T, but I was so tired that sex was the last thing I wanted. Libido has improved a bit, but not dramatically. I have noticed improved gains in the gym, and better muscle definition in areas that used to lag behind, however fat loss has not happened at all, unless I am eating perfectly clean.
Numbers from my last 3 tests are below, let me know if there are any other metrics you need. Those in red are pre-TRT. Blue is my first protocol, Green is my current.
Old Protocol: 150mg of Test Cyp, once a week. 500iu of HCG, twice a week.
Current Protocol: 75mg of Test Cyp, twice a week, 500iu of HCG, twice a week, 1mg of Anastrozole, twice a week.
I’m thinking of switching to taking test EOD, and possibly lowering the dosage. That should hopefully lower my E2, so I don’t have to take so much AI, while keeping my test in a good range. Any advice? Thanks!
