I didn't because I'm not sure at what level my cutoff is.  I can tell you that I was experiencing moodiness, low libido, ED, and acne and a lab during that time came back with an E2 level of 50. I can't tell you whether or not I would have had the same symptoms at 40...
Current protocol -- 66mg Test Cyp 3x per week, 0.1mg Arimidex 3x per week, 125 IU HCG every day.

A couple of years back, I consulted a Prof. of Endocrinology about my ED problems. He gave me a comprehensive blood test and the only significant abnormal result was E2 at 137pg/ml.
At that time, I was taking 100mg per day of DHEA and he said my high E2 was caused by that.
Strangely, I felt really good at that level. The DHEA seemed to have restored a reasonable degree of erectile capability but it also gave me sensitive nipples. Although that was quite a pleasant feeling, it worried me that I was heading towards gyno so I cut back to 50mg per day and both the erections and the nipple sensitivity stopped. From all that I've read on the subject, that is illogical but that's how it was for me. Nowadays, my E2 is still high (around 50pg/ml) despite 3 x 0.5mg Arimidex per week.

Age 76 years. Started Viagra at 59 years, then Cialis. Developed serious eye problems in 2010 immediately after increasing dose. Ordered to never use PDE5i again.
5 years on TRT, starting  with Androgel, then compounded 2% propionate gel then 5% propionate gel, then Sustanon 250 IM 3-weekly, then Sustanon 250 subq. 0.1ml x 3pw. Recently changed the subq protocol to shallow IM in the quads.
Arimidex 0.5mg EoD. Stopped TRT in April 2015 but started again in November due to decline in libido. Still taking:
Prazosin 3x5mg ED
Nebivolol 5mg x2 ED
Gave up Tamsulosin as I didn't like retrograde ejaculation. No negative effects since stopping.

Well, estradiol stimulates some downstream heavy hitters like SHBG and activates serotonin receptors:

So, if you were low in any of these, it might have really helped you out?
