I started getting TRT shots around July 1st at 200mg every 8 days. I do the shots at home and have split that into two shots (100mg every 4 days). June, July and August were great. Everything was working as advertised. Then the second week of September came, and I went into a tailspin of anger and moodiness that was overwhelming. I was in a dark place, and very angry about shit that I know I shouldn’t be very upset about.
That episode passed in about a week and things went back to normal. Then the second week of October came and I had the same experience, very bad place to be.
That too lasted about a week, and here I am in the second week of November and guess what happened? Yep, the mood swings and anger are back in a big way.
I had blood drawn during the October incident and I was told my E2 level was at the high end of normal…at 58. My testosterone level was around 850 I believe (5 days after a shot…I missed one of my normal 100mg shots by a day).
I went in again today to have it drawn but won’t know the numbers until tomorrow.
Does this pattern sound familiar to anyone? I can’t live life like this. Do I need to back off from the 200mg a week? Is this an estrogen issue that requires AI to counter?
