Is 17.8 pg/ml low for Estradiol? My lab test shows range 7.6 - 42.6 pg/ml. I've read here before 20 was optimum, but I also read that anything under 18.2 is to low.
I have been using Forma Stanzol, about 6 pumps, twice a day.

Just a quick update. Went back to doc and told him I wanted to switch to injections instead of the Axiron. Put Axiron on for the last time Monday morning and took first injection that afternoon. Within 24 hrs things started looking better, 5 days later increased libido and no erection problem, I have no idea why the shot made so much difference, it's like the Axiron was having an opposite effect on me. I hope this continues to work.

Maybe a week after my last post, my libido went away again and still have some erection problems. Went and had more blood test from private md labs and here is some results. Maybe somebody can give me some insight on what might be causing problems?
Testosterone, Serum - 954 - 348-1197 ng/dL BN
Testosterone,Free - 39.40 - HIGH - 5.00-21.00 ng/dL BN
Insulin-Like Growth Factor I - 278 - HIGH - 75-216 ng/mL BN
Estradiol, Sensitive - 45 - 3-70 pg/mL BN
Taking 200mg of Testosterone Cyp per week injection.

Yeah I think I need Arimidex, but my doc doesn't believe estrogen being to high. He wouldn't even order a E2 test, that's why I went to Labcorp and got it tested. I guess I need a endo, but I hate to start from the beginning again. Always heard they will pull you off the Testosterone first thing and start over. There's a few places that sell it online, but I don't if it's on the up and up.

I suspected that the Labcorp Estradiol Sensitive (3-70 range) test was under reporting my E2.
So, on 04/20/12, I paid for Labcorp's Estradiol Sensitive (3-70 range) and the cheaper Estradiol (7.6-42.6 range) blood tests.
Estradiol Sensitive (3-70 range) reported as 19 pg/ml
Estradiol (7.6-42.6 range) reported as 54.8 pg/ml
Yes, I really did have HIGH E2 and I thought I did.

Just to add my opinion to what has been said.
First, I don't think 200 per week is necessarily too high. I've done 100, 150, and 200. I feel best on 200. Also I only take .25mg Arimidex once a week. Hardly any really.
I will say that after years of frustration using transdermal testosterone, I love injecting test cyp. I have super strong libido raging hardons every morning, great gains in the gym. I currently have no problems or complaints with my TRT.
Something I will add is that for optimal hormone levels I think it is best to inject every two or three days SQ. Testosterone stays very level and E2 spikes less.
As far as the OP's concern. Yes I think your E2 is too high and causing your erection problems. Somehow you need to convince your doctor to prescribe Arimidex, or find a doctor who will.

I can't believe the apparently humongously flawed Labcorp test. It's astonishing because it's not as if it's some kind of secondary source of information. It is THE thing doctor's use to make their treatment. It's something like if there was an X-ray machine that automatically photoshopped out broken bones, or photoshopped in broken bones when the bones were actually fine.

LOL, that is awesome. "Sorry sir, you are looking at 3 months cast time and PT" But..but...but, I thought it was just a sprain.

Axiron is garbage- Evidence suggests topicals are not beneficial in long term cases. Must use injections for stable levels and highest efficacy with TRT.

My gym buddy Jeff took Axiron and had to stop. The cream works some, injections are your best bet. 400's are in no way optimal testosterone levels.

Daily injections of 5-10 mgs have been working well with doctor's i have been suggesting them along enhancing the androgen receptors sensitivity.
My father does 35 mgs of testosterone once a week. Total test at 820 5 days after the shot with e2 from lab corp Right one at 29. He's 83 ..
