    I don't know what any of the values truly mean so I'll be asking questions! I appreciate you volunteering to help a brother out

    So I got a call from the clinic and my total test came back as 128ng/dl which is low and my total estradiol came back at 30pg/ml. I have an appointment on Wednesday to go over the results and discuss the options moving forward.

    I got put on 150MG of Test Cyp/week, 500iu HCG/week, 0.25mg Arimidex/week. Bloods in 5 weeks to check progress. Hopefully this will help me feel better and give me some more energy.

    Excellent!

    give it a full 6 weeks to get all mental benefits of trt. You may see libido improvements within the first 3 weeks.

    That's an excellent therapeutic dose imo. You may not even need the arimidex but that dose is much more conservative than I've seen lately. That's a good thing. Too many places overprescribe the AI.

    You will be amazed at how you feel in 6 to 8 weeks.

    Update on the Low T situation: After 5 weeks bloods say my total T is now 662 (tested 6 days after last dose) but Estradiol was 60-something so I'm on .25MG Arimidex twice/week. I thought I had included this info already on my low t thread but I must have posted it elsewhere. Anyhow, just updating this thread with where I am at.

    Dose will stay at 150/week and testing in a few more weeks to see if the estradiol gets back down in the 30-40 range.

    662, six days after the last dose is putting you at a very high peak Im sure. Crazy how different everyone's body absorbs and metabolizes this stuff. Youre on a good path here. Just watch your lipids with the adex. My HDL tends to drop more than Id like when on any amount of it but I dont take any when on trt dose anymore. As you continue to lose bodyfat, you may need less and less of it.

    Yeah Dawg, I was surprised with the total t result as well. I'm not sure if I am just really sensitive to it right now and this is temporary or if it will be like this forever. I think I will continue to use this clinic until later in the year and then look to self-medicate as I become more confident and knowledgeable in reading the bloodwork and understanding this stuff. I'm not there yet. I have asked about an alternative to the anastrazole and they are going to switch me to something else after the next round of bloodwork (Aromasin I think they said).

    As far as gains in the gym go, I am feeling/looking good man. The scale isn't a whole lot different but I have not been as diligent with my macros and I plan on leaning out throughout the rest of the spring/summer. My clothes fit different and my boners stick around through the duration so it's working!

    I forgot to mention that I had an interesting discussion with my trt doc regarding aromatization(sp). She was saying that because I am carrying around 25% body fat it may be causing me to aromatise more than normal. She also said that once I get my body fat down we can probably cut my AI dosage back. Running bloods again in 3 weeks to check my estradiol. I’m ready to get this dialed in good so I can start self medicating at some point. This clinic is kinda pricey in my opinion.
