But I set up an estrogen plus re-test of testosterone appt. for Monday, just to be sure. I will not apply on my arms saturday and sunday, wrists I must use to spread it out but......and I will wash my arms thoroughly (I did this on last Monday as well, but maybe I fcked up, who knows). I just can't believe you can get to 2000+ on androgel of ANY amount of pumps w/o DMSO or phlogel. I will say I am on 5 pumps of transaderm, so maybe that DHEA and Pregnenolone is bumping up the testosterone total #....just can't see it having that much of an effect, I assume (using my 687 # from 8 pumps) that I'd be 1,000-1,150 max on 12 pumps....but I tested w/o DHEA/Preg for the 687 test, this time I was on full blown DHEA/Preg. Not sure how badly that is skewing my #.
Damn crazy high T numbers! But your other bloodwork numbers really don't seem bad. Keep us posted bro.
What happened with the Phlojel? I thought you were running that with your Androgel?
Dude, wtf? Get off the gel and start injecting.
With you test being so high DHEA will convert to other things, like estrogen. I read where one persons test was 1300 on only two pumps of AndroGel. It turns out that he was rubbing it on his inner arms and then have blood drawing from that same area. This apparently skews the results. He was also being tested about an hour after application. Test levels peak shortly after application so it's better to wait until later in the day.
P.S. How can you afford AndroGel at 12 pumps/day?
More is not better, better is better...
"Total estrogens" 165 (40-115 Pg/Ml) HIGH
Progesterone 1.6 (.2-1.4 Ng/Ml) HIGH
Prolactin 7.2 (4-15.2 Ng/Ml)
And I thought prolactin was the problem I had to get an appt with an endo since the GP cried he would lose his license for prescribing arimidex to a TRT patient lol I demanded a referral to an endo so he was happy to give it to me this time. Is my prolactin too high? seems above the middle.....and progesterone, is that something I should be concerned about? Not so familiar with progesterone.
I apply progesterone cream daily. It's good for both men and women. High estro especially E2 is a big problem. It's pretty well been confirmed that it is the primary cause of prostate cancer in men and breast cancer in women.
