Started 100 mg test TRT split into 50mgs mondays/thursdays. Started Feb 9th of this year.
I have a dr who listens very well to me, and i took the precautions for gyno as i'm already aware im gyno sensitive (took cycles before - also had gotten gyno pretty bad and had it surgically removed)
Been off the gear for a few years, had a pituitary tumor removed as well. Although I don't have my blood reports on hand, from what I remember my levels were as follows BEFORE starting trt
T3/t4: mid range
TSH: was a bit high, but still in range (dr is keeping tabs on this)
Test: was at the very bottom of range, just under 300
Prolactin: was a bit over, 21 (5-18 normal range for men - with 2.5mg bromo my prolactin drops to 1)
Estrogen fluctuates at the top end of range for men.
There was a bunch of other hormones i got checked for as well, which all read back pretty good.
My issue is i get gyno with just 100mg a week with aromasin 25mg ED along with nolvadex 20mg ED and bromocriptine 2.5 mg everyday.
I pushed for the nolvadex just until we found a sweet spot for my AI and I wouldn't have to worry about gyno - the dr agreed. To me, it just doesn't make sense im getting gyno. And no, its NOT me being paranoid.
Going for blood work Tuesday, is there another hormone I haven't been looking at that could be causing this?
