For those with experience, do subq injections decrease estrogen levels? I’ve done a little research and found varying opinions on this. Thanks
The belief is sub q injections provide a slower rise and less of a spike in T levels. This has the potential to keep aromatization from T to E lower because technically T levels may not get as high.
That being said, if free T levels are stable at a certain number, say 25.1 pg/ml your personal/individual aromatization rate should be the same whether IM or subq.
The key to stable free T levels/avoiding large peaks and valleys, are not only through sub q injections but also through increased injection frequency.
There are multiple issues:
- avoiding decades of muscle damage
- smoother T levels
Smoother T levels:
- inject subq twice a week
- allows for serum anastrozole levels to match T levels better
- allows lab results to be meaningful
- helps avoid some high HTC and RBC that some guys experience
- avoids some T–>E2 driven by T peaks
- avoids T roller coaster effects
