Amazing how such little t has guys peak so high.  140 mg subq had me peaking at like 600

Yeah, that is weird cuzz my SHBG isn't that much higher than yours.
what is your shbg?

I believe it was 27 or 28 the last time I had it checked, which means I am at a non-HRT levels of probably around 33 or 34 I would guess.

Just an FYI that my SHBG seems to go lower when I have more middle-of-the-road total T levels compared to high ones.  The reason?  Possibly because glucocorticoids lower SHBG.  Which means that if TRT lowers cortisol, you should conceivable have lower SHBG with middle levels and higher SHBG (as your cortisol goes down more) with higher levels.  Screwy.

Not sure how this fits but my morning erections are much stronger the day following taking .5 arimidex.  Doing T injections of about 22mg MWF.

Well, that's a good sign, but you really have to be careful.  That's a lot of arimidex and not much testosterone, i.e. you don't want to end up with bone loss.

With Arimidex having a half life of about 2 days doing a quarter X 2 is about as small as I can get them.  66 +- mgs of testosterone per week has been working very well.  I have gone back an forth between cream (with unusual application) and injections (now 3 x per week) and the injections are working nicely.  It took a couple of weeks or more but so far so good.

If there is another way to lower E that works I'm open to knowing more.

I did a quarter tab for awhile.  I just recommend pulling your numbers.  Dont go by faith...

Thanks Peak - I'm due a draw in about 6 weeks.  My doc is unforgiving and un-forgetting...

PeakT,
at 100mg a week where were your testosterone and E2 levels?

Well, I'm not the best person to ask, because my last read was a couple months and, while I was 100, I was quite inconsistent. I would quite often go for 4 days or 5 or even 6 instead of the 3.5 I was supposed to go.  I am going to give this another week to stabilize and then pull it.  So ask again in a week or two if you think of it...
