My levels with 120 mg testerone a week, in 2 60 mg doses
« on: April 14, 2015, 05:57:12 pm »
It is a little strange, but I did switch to a shorter needle, just longer than sub Q. My estrogen was at 25 before. However, I have had insomnia and terrible fatique with high BP and shortness of breath with real exertion over the last couple weeks. So, I had it drawn, My peak testosterone was 1168 and my estradiol ultra sensitive  was 37. So, I am going to 100 mg a week in 2 doses. It is a good thing, I have been on large doses for 6 months and my hair is really thinning over the last month  :'( Maybe dropping it will help.  The estradiol should not be quite a peak, based on it is a day later.

Was that blood drawn in your trough or was it right after or a day after an injection?

about 36 hours after injection. My symptoms fit Estradiol, so I am not surprised. They have been adjusting my thyroid meds and they seem to effect each other, What a pain!!!

It doesn't sound like you're far from achieving ideal hormone levels.  You're on the right track for sure.  I think it's a great/logical move to lower your dose. 

As always, small increments and give it some time before making any other changes or getting bloodwork.

Higher T levels can lower thyroid meds.  If you think about it, the higher you go in testosterone, your DHT, estradiol ramp up and (in some men) your DHEA and thyroid ramp down. Now this can be good.  Some low T guys have buffer in their thyroid and DHEA and they need some extra DHT  and estradiol.  So I am sure this partially explains why the honeymoon period disappears in some men.

I feel like I am adjusting a 3 leg stool. Each adjustment throws off the other legs  ;D. I think I am getting closer. It seems I will be down to the 100 mg a week you predicted  Peak, at least I think. I did drink some alcohol  for several days before the test. It helped me sleep. I read that raises estradiol a bit. I am hoping 100 mg will not tank my estradiol too much.

What I have read a number of times is that alcohol is initially sedating and will help you fall asleep.  However, in a few hours, it is stimulatory and so your sleep is not as deep and restful.

O know, but it works. I fall asleep fine, but wake up 4 hours later. A shot puts me out for 3 hours. I normally do not even drink. Stuff tastes nasty. It should be temporary. I slept very little for a week straight, I started to have trouble at work. This is not a great solution, but it helps. I took my first lower half dose of Testosterone last night. I know it will take a while to come down. Having am anxiety again and constipation for the first time in my life . Estrogen is a hard master!

If I could drink it, no, it would be good. Just wanting to get my BP down, resting is barely hypertensive, but it shoots up fast

Two men on here tweaked down their testosterone cypionate dose and lowered their blood pressure considerably.  I split it out here:
