Reaching out to you guys here because I’m searching for some personal experiences with alternate AI options.
Quick break down: I take 20mg TRT sub q every 3.5 days. Total 40 a week. This puts me at a nice 400-500 trough level, which is fine for me right now, Any more Test and I start having high BP and adrenaline issues.
This is a good level for me, and I know because when I was taking Aromasin or Arimidex, I was having major morning erections, sometimes erections that would be coming and going all day, randomly. (When taking AI’s I was keeping e2 in 22-26 range, but I know I went low a few times) So I know my Testosterone is in a good range. My issue is with Using those two AI’s. They both seem to be giving me massive headaches. Doesn’t seem to matter how little I use, I seem to get that headache behind the eyes (feels dry) dull, constant.
I have completely stopped the Aromasin for now and my headache has gone away, and currently im using Zinc to try and control my E2. I am going to get labs in a few days to see where it is at, but symptoms wise, I know im a little high.
Difficulty keeping erection, difficulty ejaculating, no morning wood at all. No Libido.
The zinc doesn’t seem to be putting me where I want to be, and I would honestly love to NOT take an AI, (which is my ultimate goal, trying to lose some extra weight, I am not very overweight at all though)
I wanted to know if anyone else had experience using DIM, Calcium D-Glucarate Sp , or Arimistane (which I recently started reading about) . Supposedly arimistane acts in the same way as Exemestane, in that it is a suicidal inhibitor.
I use to take Erase pro when I would use DAA and that always helped me lower my estrogen without making me feel crappy, but im not sure about using something like that long term with TRT. Any help would be appreciated. Will post my labs when I get them.
