I’m now on TRT through my Endo. 100mg per week - currently on 2nd dose. Just turned 36 - Total T has been 234, 438, and 203 last result. Only abnormals have been T, Prolactin and LH.
Riddle me this:
If concerned about T to E conversion and aromatization; is this solely based on E2/estradiol blood tests or is it symptoms also? I’ve read the concerns here although it seems to be mostly related the blood test results.
If so, have most of you experienced increases in E2 blood tests when starting TRT? Or, if E2 remained in range would you not opt for Arimidex anyway?
Considering HPTA shut down and LH production: My Prolactin was slightly elevated 23 (range 3-18) and LH was low. We are going to test Prolactin for a third time and see but my guess is that he would like me to consider Dostinex. To that end, if this were you - would you opt for the Dostinex which would increase LH and hopefully aid in the boys not shrinking? Do I understand this correctly?
