Apologies for the lack of clarity. I did technically change 2 variables at once, but it was not A.I… It was switching from T-Cream applied to scrotum to 200mg E with no a.i. Brief history of treatment to follow:
In the past I’ve done from 140 to 200mg Test E with 3x a week A.I. down to 22pg/ml. Felt like crap on all.
When I came off A.I. I was convinced e2 was the killer so I’ve done between 70mg -165mg weekly without A.I… I had no symptom resolution through 165mg Test E weekly.
I did 175mg weekly test e with no a.i. for 3 weeks, and the second I felt a “hot flash” I dropped the dose back down due to fear of e2 side effects. That was back in febuary.
That’s when I decided to switch to the T-Cream in march-july which wasn’t helpful, cost too much, and was annoying to apply.
When I jumped back onto test E i wanted to start higher than 165mg/weekly, so I figured why not and just started at 200mg/weeky.
For reference on my labs my highest blood lab without a.i. was 154mg/week. Doctor did not order labs at 165mg and had me titrate directly to 175mg (which I gave it up in 3 weeks).
SHGB --> (20 nmol/L - range: 16.5-55.9), seems steady here despite dose or a.i.
Free T --> (26.9 pg/ml - range: 8.7-25.1), seems steady here despite dose or a.i.
E2 --> 69.6pg/ml (range: 8-35)
Total T --?> 943 ng/dl (range: 264-916)
I am currently injecting EOD in the mornings as i can stay more consistent with it than I can with 2x weekly (missing the nightly shot occasionally).
Also I indeed was pulled down the low dose path for a year. Not fun and felt like I wasn’t on anything.
Anyhow good to here that these symptoms are ok for the time being, and I will ride the wave out and see what happens. I will keep an eye out for my free t when I get my next lab in two or so months.
