    Erase, Enlarged Prostate and TRT


    So I have been on TRT for many YEARS (Im in my 40's)

    I switched from Aromasin to Erase years back with great success

    Well, 1 cap a day seemed to be the sweet spot so I stuck with it for years.

    2+ made me to dry and my joints got creeky

    Had a CT Scan for something else and it revealed an incidental finding of MILDLY enlarged prostate

    I am a big believe that estradiol is the insulting agent for prostate issues (not always DHT, although sometimes it can be)

    I also take NOW Brand Prostate support (for 5+ years)

    Erase works well to keep sides At bay at 1 cap/day. Not a fan of having to switch to 2/day (but apparently I have to up dose)

    Am I missing something? Any insight?

    Mildly enlarged? Is there a baseline from which this mild enlargement has grown from? Have you had a digital prostate exam? Do you have PSA numbers? Do you have E2 numbers? Are you symptomatic?

    I knew I'd get picked apart w/o additional info! haha. You are correct too, should have added. Sorry

    Blood work will be back Monday - Will post up.
    Baselines have always been normal 1x/year for 8-9 years (but, no testing for 2+ years now though)

    Never had the digital. Yes, I know Im due

    Zero symptoms. Zero urgency or feeling a of lack of "empying" and zero need to get up during sleep to urinate.

    I'm not picking you apart. Just covering bases. Personally a digital exam would give me more peace of mind. Unless the CT detected a mass or spot then the 'relative' size and lack of symptoms would not alarm me. Of course clean bloods would further ease your mind.
