After feeling down and sluggish, low libido for some time I was diagnosed and started TRT in december 2012.My level was about 330 at 35 years old. I started on 1cc test cyp 200mg every 2 weeks. after a few months and a follow up visit dosage was upped to 1cc every week. My libido did improve and a little better since of well being. After finding tnation I realized my doc was not testing everything necessary and went back with info but she was unwilling to test or treat E2 so I moved on. I finally had a more informative blood panel done.

Doc didnt see me after visit , practitioner did. She said my levels were spiking too high and I needed to split dosage.Said E2 levels were ok and would actually drop some when i lowered dosage. Also she told me to give blood to lower hematocrit.she told me to take .5cc on mon and thursday, again seemed to make sense, also help with acne on shoulders.
through it all i havent felt great. Better, at times but not often or steady.I really think my e2 may be too high but not sure. I just want to feel happy and alive again. I was hoping for some advice from some of the very knowledgable guys here.And feel free to ask if you want more info, I shared what I thought was relevant but have more details if needed. Thanks for your time!
