Follow-up tests / Hope for answer
ok, been on Test Cyp 100mg/per wk for about 5 months. This follows being on Andro 10mg and having my Test only move to 325.
On Test Cyp, my Test is up to 567 at day before next injection. Mentally I feel a little better, but sexually even worse. I doubt it is E2 elevation as I tried low dose of DIM and that made it even worse. Well my Endo is a total jerk and keeps wondering why E2 keeps showing up on my results as he doesn't believe in testing it. I told him "cause I keep checking the box cause you won't". I'm done with him.
Anyways I understand unless it's the E2 sensitive assay from Quest (or similar) it's worthless. So, I went back to my PCP who doesn't know much, but is a good guy and wants to help. I showed him Dr. John's mention of need for Quests test and he said he'll run all the tests in the world if it helps find an answer that will make me feel better. That's why I like him
So we're running some more labs next week. Here's what we are doing...
Comprehensive Metabolic Profile
CBC, Platelet, and Diff
Quests Estradiol by Extraction Method/Sensitive Male Assay (quoted from Dr. John's protocol)
Seems like a good panel. I wonder about Cortisol. It's not on my lab sheet.. is this necessary and is there another code for it? is there a particular test for it? There's room for me to write in Tests and I'll do it and explain to my PCP.
Dr. John's input would be most appreciated as would anyone with experience/knowledge.

Ok more followup tests while on 100mg Test Cyp per wk. Mentally I feel better, but sexually worse than ever. Which would lead to possible high E2. But, I have tried DIM and seems to make it worse so I wonder if low E2. Anyways here's my latest lab results as dictated by my PCP on my answering machine. He is out of the office until next week when we can speak live.
Total T - 669 (range 300-1000)
Free T - 183 (range 47-244)
Free T % - 2.7%
PSA - "low"
Cholesterol - 151
"Bad" cholesterol - 107
"Good" cholesterol - 30 (dr said a little low and encouraged more exercise)
Comprehensive Metabolic Profile -"looks good"
Free T3, FreeT4, TSH - "looks good"
Prolactin - "midrange"
SHBG - 14 (range 11 - 80)
Insulin - "slightly low, but not concerned - may be from fasting - not low enough to worry"
I am waiting on Quests E2 Sensitive Assay results and DHT results. Everything else looks pretty good.
Previous, regular "worthless" E2 test by endo indicated "less than 10". Given that Zinc and/or DIM makes me feel worse sexually, I doubt high E2 is my problem, but we shall see.
Has anyone ever heard of low E2 while on Test Cyp? Seems paradoxical....
If my lab comes back low - then what?
If normal then what?
If high (doubtful) than more DIM or Arimidex seems logical.
HELP!! - thanks

There is a product called MYOMIN
Name taken from MYOMA, uterine fibroid tumors, due to excessive estrogen.
BillFromNJ started taking it week ago and as far as I can tell is making a progress.
--->:chick: (damm, they both dancing, but one need more hormones to synchronize beat)
Have anybody else, using MYOMIN?
Estrogen Dominance - Energetic Nutrition
Myomin - Hormone Balancing Formula
