First post here, just joined, anyways a few years ago I was on testosterone and Dr had me take Letrozole, a half pill once every 2 weeks if I recall.
Started out with pellets under the skin once(way way expensive!), then troches in cheek and gums, then went to cypinate shots once a week.
Dr left clinic and new Dr told me testosterone shots were dangerous and wouldn’t prescribe them, also I was being treated for low thyroid and new dr explained it wasn’t their specialty like the Dr that left.
I was told to go to family or primary dr to get thyroid treatment as I told them I couldn’t afford pellets under the skin.
Go to primary dr show him my recent thyroid and testosterone labs, he talked me out of testosterone and started treating my thyroid.
He sent me to endocrinologist to treat thyroid as he was scared of my very high5 grains nature throid dose I took, the endocrinologist ran labs and testosterone very low, wrote me rx for the tiny vials of testosterone to inject myself after I said no to rub on creams, gf was at visit and said she doesn’t want testosterone cream absorbing into her skin as we sleep next to each other.
Walking out of endocrinologist office I remembered that I used to take letrozole as a AI forgot what word but to prevent testosterone I take to turning into estrogen which is toxic in high doses to men, first dr years ago explained.
I walked back in and asked but lady at counter said dr was gone for day, so took a message, a few days later medical assistant called back and said I don’t need anything with testosterone.
So I have hesitated taking it.
Do I need a AI such as letrozole while taking testosterone shots?
Also this dr says take 1ml shot once every 2 weeks, I used to take 1/2ml shot once a week, kept old bigger bottle.
Been almost 3 years since I had any testosterone, what do you think?
