5 wks on TRT, new labs. HOLY CRAP!!!!!
Ok, so I've started TRT (100mg Test E a week), and have been on it for 5 weeks now. I got some labs done to see where my stuff is at. Holy Cow have I got some numbers to share, so here we go:
5 Aug 11 - 5 weeks TRT
Total Test: 1469.00 ng/dl (280-800)
Free Test: Haven't got the numbers back yet
Estradiol: 171 pg/ml (0-52)
I had CBC and CMP done as well and the only numbers that required some notice:
ALT: 71 U/l (7-56)
BUN: 9 mg/dl (9-21)
And here are my numbers before TRT:
15 June 11
E2 36 pg/ml (0-52)
Total Test 235 ng/dl (250-1100)
Free Test 59.9 pg/ml (35.0-155.0)
26 April 11
Estrogen 96.0 pg/ml (40.0-115)
Total Test 263 ng/dl (250-1100)
Free Test 55.5 pg/ml (35.0-155.0)
9 March 11
Total Test 262 ng/dl (250-1100)
Free Test 76.5 (35.0-155.0)
Estrogen 115.2 pg/ml (40-115)
I DO feel better after being on the Test E for the past 5 weeks, and I do see that my E2 is EXTREMELY HIGH. I was on ZERO AI during the 5 weeks (thank you Matrix for recommending to get accurate numbers).

Getting the estradiol in check is something you want to do, yes, but I wouldn't freak too much in the meantime. Your total test to estradiol ratio was ~6.5:1 before and now is ~8.5:1. So, it's higher in ratio, but not as ridiculous as you might initially think.
All that said, congrats on the numbers, man! A mild dose of an AI should definitely keep that in check (though others here who are far smarter than I would know more details for you).

Almost sounds like you are accidentally injecting twice your dose. What is the strength of your prescription?
If that is correct, your doctor should be recommending you drop the dose.

it still is towards the high end for that dose for day before.
Are you measuring 1ml or is it 1ml vials and you are sucking it all out and not paying attention to the measurement? reason I ask is that most manufacturers overfill to ensure ability to draw a full ml, so occasional I get as much as 1.2ml from a 1ml vial.

If you are testing over 1400ng/dL a week after your injection, you are well over 2000 to 2500ng/dL the day after the injection. As you can see your lab range is 200 to 800ng/dL. Are you grasping how high over range you are?
You want to be closer to 800 (on the range *your lab is using), the day after injection. (*Different labs use different ranges)

And of course these smaller doses will require something that can measure more accurately. Like a insulin needle.

So, I called my endo and told her what was going on with the 200mg a week. She understood and told me to make sure that it 1/2cc injecting = 100mg a week; however, she was still concerned with the high E2. Even at 200mg a week and getting the blood work done a day BEFORE pinning, she was a little concerned about 1449 test, but will run blood again in 5 weeks to see what's up. She also said she's going to put me on an AI regardless, and wants me to come in next week; however, I'll be in Tampa, so I had to make it the week after that.

Some people need hcg for lh to help in their brain and other receptors in the body. I use hcg to replace lh not to increase testosterone unless they are on monotherapy
