Dht and hair growth
How come that with dht 2 times the highest top end that I only shave once every 3 weeks vs EOD like I normally did? Could that be an indictor my testosterone is that freaken pathetic? Thought DHT was suppose to make my hair grow faster Yes testosterone is 307 after 1 ml 10% creame applied and if that is after 2 hours how low does it drop after 8-10 hours? If estrogen is the major player in BPH and my estrodial 19 is in range but testosterone/estrogen is skewed how can that slight deviation be really affecting my prostate that much since the DHT is an invailid essay? 64 million dollar question is if estrogen metabolism is that out of wack could that give the same symptoms of elevated e2 (but its elevated esterone) and actually lower my testosterone as well as free levels as well? By correcting any altered estrogen metabolism will this cause a significant increase in TT as well?

I am new to all this, but I am curious, how much protein do you eat? For me, normally my hair grows fairly slow. But when I was eating tons of eggs, tuna, etc. when I was working out alot my hair grew like crazy.

It may take DHT, but it takes nutrients as well. Good point about protein, b4554

I was wondering hte exact same thing. I havn't got my DHT tests back yet but I rarly have to shave and think the estrogen test balance is out of whack. Wondering if I just corrected the estrogen by taking DIM if that would bring my total test , and free test back up.

I have all the symptoms of low t/high estrogen and my tests came back kinda low for a 22 year old. Free test on two tests has been 43.3, and 50.9 with refrence range of 31-94. And total test seems almost to be around a decent level at 15.1-17.1 refrence range 7.3-23.5. With estradiol 147 ref range <206, converted my pmgammer it is 43pg/ml, and it should be between 10-30 best around 20.
I'm going to wait and see what the new doc has to say, but I wondered if maybe there was just a sqrew up in the estrogen metabolism from steroids and test is aromatase to estrogen. If maybe I pulled down the aromatase with a DIM that would reduce SHBG, and estrogen, while consiquently also bumping test, and free test up a bit to get rid of these symptoms.
I don;t know I'm kind of new to this but I guess I'll see what my doc says.

Ok if trt shuts down lh and fsh why was my fsh elevated because of low testosterone over porlong peroid of time?

From my understanding, when FSH is elevated that means the testicals are NOT producing enough T. The body is cranking out FSH to overcompensate but its a moot point because testicals are unresponsive.
One interesting thing I would like to add is that the aggressive behavior that alcohol/beer causes in young healthy males is due to the fact that drinking temporarily elevates FSH/LH and causes a increase in T due to healthy responsive testicals.
Your testicals have decided to retire

hardasnails1973, one other thought, do other guys you're related to have heavy beards? Genetics is a factor in facial hair too just as in balding. I've known guys in their 30's & 40's that I would have guessed had more T than me and didn't have alot of facial hair. Maybe it's in the hormone receptors, not just blood levels.

Don't forget good old genetics. You might not be (genetic-wise) inclined to need to shave that often, despite DHT or estrogen levels.

Why was it that when I took HCG that I would have incredible vivid dreams now there is like nothing.. Does testosterone affecting dreaming some how and REM sleep.
Does testosterone help to protect against dealing with stress and actaully could preserve ones cortisol levels. Since we are producing synthetic do we have to worry about it ever being depleted by stress, but rather what little we do make..

Curious ? Can altered estrogen metabolism be just as bad and have same side effects of high e2?
