    Could DIM have knocked my e2 too low?

    Current Protocol: 110Mg pw Test Cyp Injecting E2D I've always only needed a very small amount of anastrozole.

    So after trying injections for 2.5 years I went back to testosterone pellets. I'm one week in and my libido is already coming back strong. I started on pellets 6 years ago and stayed on them for 3 years and they always worked great. I stopped them because every now and then I'd have one that...

    Low E2 but high prolactin?

    I have had high prolactin before which was mainly caused by an intense workout the day before the test but usually it also comes along with a raised E2.
