    Tetracyclines and Estrogen

    More and more, I believe I fall into the camp of those that feels better with E2 in the normal (non trt) range. Supposedly tetracyclines can raise estrogen levels. I know nothing about the mechanism. But, on two occasions, I have developed symptoms I believe to be E2 related while on Sarecycline...

    Accidentally took a megadose of Estradiol in place of Testosterone

    I've been very foggy after dealing with a thiamine paradox reaction that won't go away (long story - I have CFS, so used thiamine to treat it). Hence this morning, instead of TRT I pinned Estradiol Valerate without realising. The dose was 20mg - which is roughly equivalent to 40 oral 2mg...

    I seem to disproportionately aromatize from alcohol - any suggestions?

    On TRT I'm not able to drink alcohol with what I would describe as an estrogen hangover. I haven't blood tested, but I have been on clomid before so feel like I can tell my E2 gets too high. My levels on TRT around 600 trough with EOD injections, with a good free T for that level. I also have a...

    Experimenting with Arimidex when drinking alcohol

    I have been on TRT for 9 months (age 28), but have found that it doesn't mix with alcohol well. I've only drunk 3 times, but each time I get what feels like an estrogen hangover that lasts for a couple of days. I don't have blood tests to prove this, but when I drink I get acute bloating, acne...

    Do I really have to take an AI like Arimidex during TRT? I think it makes me miserable.

    Given my estrogen levels below - what would happen if I stopped taking my Arimidex 2mg / week (taken for about like 10 months)?? I only ask this because many people on this forum say very nasty things about Arimidex... Is the only real possible side effect really just gynecomastia? P.S. - This...

    Are E2 Tests Useless??

    I’m sure many here have seen a lot of the videos from the TRT Optimization guys, and I will say they put out a lot of good information. One thing I’ve wondered about lately is the claim that it’s pointless to check E2 due it being a paracrine hormone. I understand the desire to to move away from...

    Phytoestrogens?

    Funny, one website says things like cruciferous vegetables, soy, herbs etc lower estrogens, the next website assures one that these same things raise estrogens. One says lowers cancer risks, Next says raises cancer risks. Surely there's a way to basically test this sort of thing?

    Anastrozole effects in the brain

    (Moving this to a new thread since it is a different topic) I am harping on this as I was doing pretty well on TRT with less than 100mg Testosterone Cypionate once a week plus 250IU HCG twice a week. Strong libido, good erections, etc. At that time, if I took 5mg cialis I could feel the effect...

    Hey guys, Looking to get some input. I am 34 years old, low SHBG (17-19), 160lb, athletic build. I've spent the last year experimenting different protocols to find one where I feel good/normal.

    Could progesterone use crash estrogen or cause joint pain?

    Hello, for the past 2 weeks I’ve been using progesterone cream, one pump scrotal application per day. Over this weekend I started to notice my joints were achy, felt sort of dry, popping a bit. I’ve actually been feeling pretty good (libido and mentally) but thinking I may have overdone it with...

    Question about crashing e2 on trt

    Say in theory somebody is on exogenous testosterone and crashes their e2 with arimidex. Would this result in the production of LH even though they are on testosterone due to negative feedback (low estrogen)? Not that I would ever do that but just curious how the feedback loop would play into this

    question on daily injections

    After utilizing a 24 mg EOD protocol, my estrodial is still high. I'm thinking this may be why I am having some ed issues still. Lab results right before next injection: Testosterone total (MS): 587 ng/dl (250-1100) Testosterone free (dialysis): 139.5 pg/ml (35-155) Estrodial ultrasensitive...

    Enclomiphene: Did you use anastrozole with it?

    Hi all, I'm about to start enclomiphene (in 9 days) and I'm still trying to figure out if I should start anastrozole at the same time. I am confused because in various posts and studies there seems to be conflicting information about whether EN raises or lower E. In some studies it says it...

    Controlling estrogen

    What is a good way to control estrogen when anastrazole is too powerful? I was taking 80 mgs of testosterone 2 x a week when my estrogen went through the roof. I started taking .125 mgs of anastrazole 2 x a week and it brought my estradiol down to an 8 and total test was at 854. Can anastrazole...

    Anyone ever had T3 raise their E2 and free T and cause erectile dysfunction?

    Been on HRT for a few years and still ironing out some lingering issues. Historically I can get my total T to 1300ish with a 200-215 free T and 50-57 E2 without an AI or anything with daily small injections of testosterone and HCG. My free T3 on labs is usually a little low (3.0-3.2), my rT3’s...

    My old dr was a dr who was all about not treating E2. He said let it go as high as you want and it won’t be a problem. Well I am seeing a new dr now and my e2 sensitive was 45. My libido has been super low, my anxiety kind of high, also my junk shrivels up to nothing along with my scrotum...

    I have a question in regard to estrogen levels on Test cypionate and Hcg combination with the use of 5 mg of Cialis daily. For those using 5 mg of Cialis how much would you say that Cialis has lowered your estrogen levels as compared to when you did not use it on the same protocol?
