There has been some talk on here that hCG increases intratesticular testosterone (ITT), and that no AI will reduce aromatization in the testicles. So, since a majority of people on TRT need hCG to promote healthy function of the testes, and hCG increases ITT, AND no aromatase inhibitor will prevent the ITT from aromatasing to E2, how does one effectively combat this?
I haven't been able to find any information that answers this question. Perhaps some are over-responders to hCG, and need less to promote healthy function.
Can you expand on your statement? I had a TT of 626 (205-781), E2 was at 110 (0-47), and SHGB was 5.3 (13.3-89.5).
I know that higher T levels drive down SHGB, AND T->E2. Just started AI this week. Doing another blood test in a month to see where everything is.
