First real post but I’ve been reading non-stop since my issues started. Im secondary hypo at age 35. I.ll provide most of the blood work later in the post Basically, I’m looking for some ideas on when people are taking AI and HCG during the week and opinions on my protocol so far. For the last 8 weeks, I’ve been taking 100mg of Cyp a week (every Wednesday). I had major water retention and high blood pressure which I learned from here were classic high E2 symptoms. Bloodwork confirmed high E2 and was just given 0.5mg of Anastrozole, which i haven’t started yet. Doctor says 0.5mg twice a week to start and may go to 3 if needed. I’ve had atrophy starting over a year ago which was one of the things that led me to have TT tested. I was just given 500iu of HCG to take twice a week. What days would you recommend for the AI? Doc says HCG on Friday and Sunday when shots are Wednesday. Hopefully this doesn’t get too long but below is my timeline and bloods so far.
02/12-Primary Care test TT @ 232…tried to give me an anti-depressant. I promptly left
03/06/19–Urologist Prior to TRT
Estrogen Total-131 (60-190)
04/27/19**Urologist that prescribed Cyp refused to test E2 or Thyroid so I found new doc. He tested a bunch more but here’s the basics. Let me know if I missed anything
T4 Free- 1.0 (0.8-1.8)
T3 Free-2.8 (2.3-4.2)
T3 Rev-12 (8-25)
Iodine Serum- 46L (52-109)
Estradiol Ultra-47 (less then 29)
Estrone–49 (less then 68)
With Low SHBG, Im wondering if the addition of HCG is gonna send my FT thru the roof and make E2 hard to control…thoughts?
