All though I'm feeling Ok the Libido is still a little Lagging! Still sometimes a little emotional sometimes a little Aggressive. So any feed back would be great. My Doc said everything looks good. We don't need to see you for 6 month's. So if anyone can dial me in that would be great!

That is a lot of test a week. Cholesterol is a little high what was LDL AND HDL.. Estrogen is high also was Estrodial test ultra sensitive??? Was on 100mg's of test a week, Test was 545 4 days after injection. So Doc put me on 120mg's a week now been 3 weeks.. I then put me on Armidex/Anastrozole .5 every other day going on 2 week's feel a lot better also have leaned up a lot. 1mg a day of adex a day seems like a lot to, but I'm no expert on this. Good luck bro!
