    Men who are primary and use HCG.

    Before I started trt I had primary hypogonadism. I did have very low estradiol levels before starting trt and I've never had any estradiol issues, never needing to use an AI. So I'm wondering are all men that are primary like me, never having any issues with estrogen and never needing to use an AI?
