TRT insomnia and low sex drive

My doctor only tests for testosterone (709 Ng/dL) and FSH (1.5 mIU/mL).

He doubled my dose but now the insomnia is killing me. No sex drive. What the frick do I tell my doctor to actually test for. I know my estrogen is damn near non-existent.

    If you’re taking an ai then test for estrogen as well. Honestly sounds like you crashed your estrogen and need to stop taking your ai.

      I will add that I’m not a doctor obviously so talk to your own. But unless you’re fat then you probably don’t need an ai since it doesn’t seem like you’re on a high dose. It’s okay to have slightly elevated e2 levels when you’re on test. It’s better than having low e2

          Tbh I’ve never taken an ai before because but that sounds like a lot my friend. Go on r/testosterone or r/trt and you’ll see millions of stories of people who say they feel like shit on trt and the culprit ends up being the ai. Not saying you should stop taking it completely but lowering your dose or stopping it altogether might be the solution. Bring it up to your doctor and see what he says. Also ask this question on those subreddits. All those guys are on trt and it’s the reason why I won’t touch ais.

          Do your knees or other joints hurt? That’s usually a giveaway for crashed e2.

            I wouldn't say my knees or joints hurt but the original reason he put me on the ai was bc I'm prone to gyno. I've gotten the gyno surgery now so that's a non-issue. Any suggestions as to what to test for when I go back to see him?

              Get your free testosterone, estrogen, lipids, blood cell count, etc.

              Def ask this question on those subreddits I mentioned. They’re very knowledgeable about this kinda stuff.

                Thank you guys so much for the feedback. If it's as easy as just quitting the ai I'll be shitting rainbows.

                I wouldn’t say quit it all together but lowering your dose might be enough. I bring up those subreddits cause a lot of those guys have been on trt a while and dial that shit in. If you have high bodyfat you might need a low dose ai just cause your body fat is what converts test into estrogen. If you have low body fat you might be able to stop it altogether.

            And by lowering/stopping your dose I mean the ai not the trt. Also not sure if you needed to double your testosterone dose if you were at 700 ng/dl off 100mg. It’s not your testosterone levels that are making you feel like shit.

          2 mgs of Adex a day? Lol. Congrats on your non existent estradiol. At 200 mg a week the most adex you would need would be 1 mg a week split up into 2 doses of .5 on each pin day.

            To touch on what this anon said, how often are you dosing op? People who get their trt prescribed by a gp sometimes get put on moronic protocols. I’ve seen somebody say their doctor pins them once a month. You’re doing at least twice a week right? 100mg twice a week.

              Twice a week dosing now. So half cc every three days or so

          Change the dose yourself. Your doctor is fricking up pretty bad. Hopefully you are taking arimidex (e.g. anastrazole). Your e2 will rebound quickly. If you are taking aromasin go cold turkey now. It's going to take weeks for your shit to come back.

          For reference I take 125mcg of anastrazole once a week for 120mg a week of test c. I'll skip a week of AI if I feel angry or dehydrated. Your skin must be cracking

            You guys have me concerned. Thinking I'm just going to stop the anastrazole and see how I feel. Prolly ask the doctor about it. Thank you

          all of the above, but dont tell your doctor you arent taking your AI. since he doesnt test for E2 or estrone levels, just keep refilling the AI and sell it. thats what i would do anyway but im a fricking degenerate who hates the government

    I doubt you even need that shit. I tried trt myself and also couldn't sleep. Thank God I came off of that bs before I would've become infertile eunuch. Trt is another medical scam like ssris. You don't really need them until your're ON. And then you're on for life.

      Well, my hormones tanked on me into double digits and then they tried jump starting it with cloud and when that didn't work we did trt. So I didn't have much of a choice.

          Avoid clomid like the plague. It can frick up your eyes permanently. Nolvadex works better anyway

    90% of men do not need TRT. Unless you're fricked up in the testicles or pituitary gland or have XXY there's no reason to take it. I hate being on this shit, but the only other choice is being a skinny pale homosexual with undetectable t levels.

    In the end those are your balls your doc is gambling with. I hope you know what injecting test does to your balls. To him you are a statistic. The fact is that you can have low test from countless other things rather than your balls just not working and going on TRT would be a very expensive bandaid. Similarly having test below some arbitrary level doesn't mean shit. Lifting heavy and taking Zinc and D-AA will raise test.

      You can take hcg to preserve your balls. It's a bit pricey compared to test, but anyone prescribing test can also prescribe hcg. It's extremely easy to get.

      It also boosts your total test since your balls don't shut down completely.

    What's the best natural way to raise test, bros? I lost my regular morning wood last week after I started taking ashwaghanda and I'm freaking out. I work out with weights four days a week and take vitamin D and a multivitamin with Zinc.
