I’m a 48 year old male, recently diagnosed with hypogonadism and started on test cyp 75 mg every 4 days. I’m also on HCG 500 iu EOD. Last TT 863. I happen to also be a a physician, but this doesn’t always help much when resolving these problems. Like many, felt great for a week or two followed by symptoms suggestive of high estrogen (insomnia, anxiety, depression) and in fact my estrogen is returned at 50 pg/ml.
I want to start Arimidex and have read quite a bit. My concern is about the risk of blood clots (thromboembolism) with Arimidex. Sounds pretty clear out here that many many people are on it, but I can’t shake the question about the risk in my mind. Hoping you knowledgeable folks can provide some insight.
A second question is about the proper estradiol test. I’ve had both the sensitive and standard tests, both are elevated around the 50 pg/ml. Is there any importance in testing with the sensitive test, or should I just stick to standard and optimize that.
Thanks for your replies.
