I’m currently on TRT (250mg Sustanon shots every 2 weeks, which I know is terrible protocol but unfortunately the UK is not good with this stuff) and recently started to suffer from what I believed to be high E2 symptoms. Broke out in acne, bloating, night sweats, and my nipples started to get puffy. I know the amount of test administered is low, but I’m super sensitive to estrogen after suffering with pubescent gyno that I eventually had to get surgically removed. I know when things are bad in that area.
I started taken Aromasin as I waited for my bloodwork to be done as I’d much rather err on the side of the caution with that stuff given the hell I went through before. After getting the results back, though, I’m baffled.
My E2 level is at <18.35pmol/l in a 44-156 scale. I wasn’t able to get the sensitive test (again, UK for you…) but that still lets me know my E is low.
So my questions are 1) What’s the deal with my nipples? They remain puffy and painful. I wasn’t able to get my prolactin checked but I doubt it’s that from sust. 2) How the hell am I walking around if my E is that low? I have none of the sides of low estrogen at all, apart from I need the toilet a bit more. Surely my joints would be savaged at that level?
As it turns out - not that surprisingly - my test has also remained low, probably given the rollercoaster that is sustanon. It’s at a horrible 9.18nmol/l in a 7.6-31 range.
Thanks for the help all.
