    High symptoms are same as low symptoms.
    You use your morning boner gauge

    Beyond morning wood, in my case I can tell if my prostate swells (can't pee) and I start retaining fluid. Then my BP goes way up. I had these issues bad when it was up at 110!

    Seems like I feel about the same if E2 is between about 20 and 35. If below 20 I lose the morning wood and feel achy.

    Again knowing complete medical history and pathology of the issue will help in making further recommendations. You are only giving me a snap shot of the total motion picture. You not pissing could be linked to 1,000 different things I have encountered in the past. As of now its just a crap shoot. You just provided 1% of the entire picture.

    Not looking for anything from you. Why would I give you a picture?

    I am just telling him how I know when my E2 is off. I don't think you read the thread.

    Answer was not directed at you, but to the original question as this one is.

    If you are HRT then you get blood testing to moniter it every 6 weeks till you get in dialed in, by using an AI. I gave you number one way to tell is night and morning boners. If you are not on HRT then you need to explore why its off. It is rather striaght forward resolution to the problem.

    usually a delayed response 2-3 days.

    You need to have starting point with testing after 5 weeks. You do not add an AI untill you know where your levels are out. The idea of taking an AI as a safety measure is just poor HRT protocol. I have seen peoples levels drop when they start hrt when they were elevated as a base line reading

    Assuming your doctor has determined that you need an AI, that is the approach mine gave me originally.

    If you have low testosterone with a base reading then have high e2. I would not suggest a Dr to give an AI not till after the first blood test to confirm you need it. You are assuming you have high e2, but body can fool you. I always suggest the Dr establish the base testosterone first before adding anything in. When you have too many variables in the mix you do not accurate readings.

    E2 over 30 would not recommend over.35-.50 mgs per week. If you were 400 at the trough this is normal, I would not recommend changing the dosage just try to keep the peak and trough closer together. 100 mgs will peak about 1100. This is a normal response to HRT, Breaking the shot up 2 times per week would help control estrogen and keep levels stable. Then you need to look at SHBG as well as other factors which complement HRT. All of which have been mentioned numerous times.

    So ur saying drop down to 100 but split dose into injections x2 a week with no ai. The 402 test and e2 of 30 were day b4 injection on a 1x a week shot. Thought my e2 may have been a lil high seeing as it was day b4 injection and th test level being so low

    Body can regulate it self when it comes to e2. I have seen people high e2 60 and when placed on HRT came down to 25 after proper dosing.
    One thing I have leaned in my years dealing with things is one can not out think the body..

    This is why you start out the proper way from the start...
