My endo has always said he's happy with my levels hovering around 1000. I'll be getting bloods taken Wednesday to see how the blast is coming along. I've decided to blast for 9 weeks instead of 12 since I've already put on about 25lbs into week 5. And I'm still really lean with no bloat. I was surprised today I got irritable for the first time since I started the blast, I've had no negative sides luckily besides today. No telling what I could do if I could really force feed myself! I've always had the drive to lift hard and heavy, but can't force enough food that I need. Around 4k-5k calories max for me during the blast. I'm surprised I'm getting that much! Once it's over I'll probably drop it down to 3500 calories and 265g of protein.

He asked me if I felt like it was too high. I told him I felt better than I have in months. He did want me to come by sooner than the six weeks so he could check rbc and e2 and make sure that dose wasn't causing any problems on that side. He does tend to lean more to the conservative side though.

Nothing wrong with that, as long as it isn't interfering with you and how you feel. Many times doctors are thinking of themselves and situations in general, so they don't take the time to really see the individual. For instance, my doctor has a lot of TRT patients and I am one of only about 5 that he allows to self inject he said because I am reasonable and discuss things openly with him. It took a long time, but I have moved out of the "general" category.

He also scolded me for doing gluteal inj by myself. It's dangerous he said. Quads only he said. Next time, I will say my wife pins the glutes for me

If you actually have a doctor that allows you to self inject, you are in the minority and should consider yourself lucky.

I just find it weird that there's such a difference between docs and how they go about treating people. I know TRT is still on the newer end of the spectrum as far as medical treatments go, but damn, it doesn't seem all that difficult to me.

Nobody would drive to a doc twice a week and I doubt there is a doc that would inject you twice a week. It's only once you get prescribed to self inject that you truly can customize your schedule to what works best. When you are at the mercy of the doc, you are just doing what you can to get as close to optimal, and that is usually just once a week- at best.
Remember that it is really those of us that self inject that have the luxury of injecting twice a week.

I was rxd 21's for flute not because of of what it would do to me, but, as the nurse said, because its harder to draw out of smaller guages. F that, even with my insurance, its cheaper to obtain needles on my own. I draw with 18 and pin glute with 21x1.5"
I need a trt doc who lifts.......

At 500mg/week, test is over 1500, e2 is 136. Erase is worthless.

Up to about 193 on the scale. That's about 14 pounds up from cycle low of 179. It's all lean mass so I'm enjoying that. My pants are fitting much larger in the waste, and my sleeves are still full ; )
Been using aromasin at about 12.5mgs/ day or EOD, depending how I feel, for about 2.5 weeks. Libido is high, mood is good, and strength/ endurance is better than it's ever been.

I use aromasin(exemestane) but it's research for my rats and I'm not sure it's as good as it could be. It's supposed to have a high level of "purity" but i might have some doubts

Would 1mg/day of Arimadex for 7 days tank my e2? Or would it be enough to bring me from 136 down to normal 25?

I view Erase as having a can of water for a campout or a TRT type dose. A cycle is like a house on fire and you are throwing a can of water on it. You need a big tanker of water like Arimadex to put it out. Use the appropriate extinguisher for the situation.

Honestly, is an 11:1 ratio of T to E that bad? I've never had high E or experienced the sides. I'm asking for knowledge, not to be a smart ass.
