    Low E issues?

    Has anyone experienced mental issues with low E. I became emotionless while taking arime stage 5 pct. At first I thought it was low T, which was in 300s. Then T came up to 600s and I feel the same. But my estraidol was at 6. My doctor said that test is unreliable, but if it is Correct, could that be my problem? And if so, how do I get it to normal range? My doc has me on clomid now to raise T more. Will added T increase E?

    Is 6 super low? The scale said under 29 was normal but Ive seen most scales say something like 20-45 being normal. And the main ingredient in arime stage 5 pct is Androst 3, 5 dien 7, 17 dione. Also has 10 mg of epistane. Which probably caused my T to drop. I did have early onset of gyno when i started it. Sensitive nipple, but that went away within 3 days of this product which says to me that it had an estrogenic effect. What do you think Austinite. I only took that product for 10 days in april and still feel this way almost 3 months later

    Hmm. Those PCT ingredients look like garbage. Anyway, a standard estradiol range by Quest Diagnostics indicates it should be under 39 pg/mL. However, if you're below 15, they display "Too low to count" < 15. So it's best to stay above 15 and below 39.

    I had quest run an ultra sensitive E2 test and it came back at 4 and no mention of "too low to count" maybe they changed it.

    p.s. I feel like crap with mine that low.

    Joint pain, memory fog lethargy for the most part. It mirrors a lot of other hormone problems. I've got an appointment with an endo soon. Hopefully I can get all my issues sorted out.
