Your E2 lab is the wrong one. It should be <40. Beyond that you can’t get an accurate lab for E2 while you’re on Clomid. Clomid is a weak estrogen and throws off the lab.
When you stop Clomid, if you’re not on an AI, estrogen will rebound hard.
Your T will bump up some if you’re on an AI and when E2 is lowered SHBG follows. That will increase bioavailable T. I’m not sure what you’re trying to accomplish but playing with T within the normal range doesn’t do a whole lot. [/quote]
Nah it’s just a different unit of measure. pmol vs. pg.
256 pmol/L (50-200) = 70 pg/mL(20-50)
I wouldn’t worry about your Free-T #. It’s a completely subjective result because there is no direct way to measure it. I would be more focused on results in the gym and other S&S. There’s no reason to want to have a high Free-T anyway since as soon as there is a deficiency somewhere T immediately dissociates from albumin and several other plasma proteins.
I had some fairly noticeable S&S of high estrogen when I was at 13.5 T /49 E2. It’s quite a difference when the E2 comes into check, libido, body fat, water retention, mood all change. It could be a bit unsettling because the change could seem dramatic. As mentioned T will rise and as your body adjusts you might get things like acne or joint pain.
So much this. I’m getting a bunch of pimples from increasing T and decreasing E2, and I’m not even injecting testosterone.
