Water Weight on TRT - Always High E?


#1

So iv gained quite a bit of water weight on Test E 125mg per week.

However a lot of the water gain coincided with a weeks skiing holiday which was high in salt, which is why I'm cautious to blame it on high E until i get my next blood test.

However iv seen a lot of people say test e is a 'wet' compound and makes people hold water...

Is that simply the case with super psychological levels, or does that also happen when obtaining natural T and E levels?

Am i always going to be puffy? haha

Thanks

It is not necessarily just estrogen. Testosterone itself makes me puffy in the face even when E2 is low (due to an aromatase inhibitor). The only way to reduce it (without taking a diuretic) in my case is to reduce T dose.
