Followed your protocol of 60mg T twice a week, 250iu HCG EOD and 0.5mg of Anastrozole for the last 4 weeks. Here are my latest lab results:
The blood was drawn the day before my next T shot.
Testosterone: 1254 ng/dl
E2: 50 pg/ml
Again, before taking HCG and AI, I was just on 100mg of Test Cyp. injected twice a week and my lab the day after was 1000 ng/dl.
What's shocking is that even at 0.5mg of AI (0.25mg twice per week), i have had joint pains, chapped lips and EXTREME fatigue. However, this past week, I reduced the dose to 0.25 mg of AI once per week and the first two days I am tired, but thereafter, I feel fine. Should I split the dose even further to 1/8 the pill and take it when I inject HCG(EOD)?) Is there really a E2 to Testosterone ratio we need to target vs. independent numbers? My testes did grow a bit, so definitely know HCG is working. Also, my wife missed her period for over a week. Pregnancy test showed negative but will schedule an appointment.
My doc told me that my E2 is still high because my Test Cyp. half life is overlapping and he recommended doing 1 a week injections. He will check with the compound pharmacy to get me a different type of AI. I told my doc about my joints popping and he said that a high E2 would even cause that.
Any help would be appreciated!
