I've been reading alot of the posts on the forum for awhile now. Super information around from the members here....have learnt alot.
I'm 24 and was put on TRT around 6 months ago. Before that was hell, terrible lethargy, poor libido....you know the rest.
Anyway, I think It's getting to a point where my Doc just isn't up to date with the current treatment options. I have been injecting 250mg Test E 1x/week, that was all he prescribed me to begin with....
After doing much research I found out about HcG. I realised i NEEDED to be on this, for fertility's sake. So off my own bat went and gathered a plethora of knowledge and literature on the product and presented it to my doc. He took it on board, having never dealt with Hcg before (even though he has many TRT patients?) and proceeded to prescribe me HcG, which I was pleased about.
Everything is going good energy is great libido and such are much improved and going along steady.
This brings me to my next point, which is Estrogen levels. I just got back from checking with my doc my latest bloodwork after using HcG so far. He was happy with all of the results, almost everything was in normal range.
All my Test levels were slightly above normal which is good. They are as follows:
Testosterone 30.6 nmo/L (8.0-29.0)
SHBG 24 nmo/L (15-45)
Free Androgen Index 128 (35-93)
Free Testosterone 785.3 nmo/L (198-619)
My Estrogen reads:
Oestradiol 154 pmo/L (40-160)
I was like
He said "It's within normal range it's fine"
I then presented him with a bunch of literature on AI's and SERM's (As I have some Gyno I was hoping to trial Nolva on to see if would benefit in treatment). But more so some Arimidex for Estrogen control throughout therapy. Instead he wants me to continue using DIM, just double the amount I'm taking....Not sure this is going to benefit much if any? As I had been on DIM for awhile and was on it at the time of the blood test.
Where do I go from here guys? Basically I was hoping to get some Nolvadex for the short term (possible gyno treatment) and then Arimidex for long term Estrogen control. He was SUPER HESITANT to prescribe either due the the Medical Board of Australia being crazy strict on Testosterone and hormonal supplement distribution....
Any thoughts/help would be much appreciated.
