    Post PCT, High Estrogen, WTF?

    So let me try and make this short and straight to the point...
    Taking a 420mg test C cycle, was taking Adex .5mg 3x week, I aborted in the 5th week and waited two weeks then hit it with my PCT, nolva 40/40/20/20 and clomid 50/50/50/50

    Now I aborted due to gyno like symptoms... which have come and gone depending on the day, lol....

    I'm still on 40mg/day of Tamoxifen to ward off any lingering gyno, (I've read a lot of articles that this can be effective, so I'm giving it a try) if it doesn't work I'll switch to Raloxifene 60mg/day.

    Had bloodwork done in 2nd week post PCT (2 weeks after PCT was completed)
    and here is where my results are at that are alarming!!!
    E2 = 96 range <39
    Total test = 1152 range 248-850

    What's the deal? and should I be taking an AI to help lower my e2?
    Thanks guys!

    Odd that your E2 is that high. Sensitive assay I presume?
    Could your adex have been bunk or was it pharm grade?
    You could jump back on adex for a BRIEF period to knock it back just don't over do it.

    If the nolva or ralox does not work on it's own add andractim gel to it.

    96 is not THAT alarming. I've seen much worse. Is that a sensitive assay?

    why did I think you were a TRT patient?

    I believe it was sensitive e2, I'm interested in TRT due to my natural levels being low-normal...I know it doesn't show that right now.

    Everything was pharm grade.... no question about it being bunk.... I'm just that sensitive to estrogen conversion I suppose... Any ideas on what to do exactly?
    I have aromasin 12.5mg, since I don't want the adex rebound, would this be a wise choice? If so, could someone help me lay out a month or two month plan.... I'm also taking Tamoxifen 40mg/day (20mg morning 20mg evening)

    You could run adex for short while and knock those numbers down like kel said.

    Could you give me some advice on dosage and duration? I can get .5mg adex 40count.....
    How would I run it so I can lower my numbers until my body balances out and not get rebound from the adex when i stop....also taking tamoxifen 40mg/day until minor gyno symptoms subside

    thank you for responding!

    Try .5 every day for a week. You need to get another e2 panel again soon to check progress.

    This stuff works instantly, it doesn't need time to get serum levels up. I don't know how well you will do with .5 ed, you need blood work. Otherwise we're playing a guessing game.

    Could be worse. At least you caught it.

    True. Someone said on another forum that it could be misleading as I should have an accurate bloodtest 4 weeks post pct?
