    6 weeks deep - bloodwork!

    Here is mid cycle BW - test cyp 500mg/wk split into 2 pins.

    Disappointed it doesn't show the whole number, just that its out of range.

    How does everything else look?

    Anything I should do?

    Changes other than Testosterone that stood out;
    Pre-cycle Platelets 269 -> now 346
    Pre-cycle HDL 82 -> now 53
    Pre-cycle LDL 68 -> now 52
    Pre-cycle T4 4.9 -> now 4.3 (LOW)
    Pre-cycle T3 37 -> now 42 (HIGH)
    Pre-cycle E2 Sensitive 23 -> now 42

    Should I up Adex a little bit?
    0.35mg EOD instead of 0.25mg EOD?

    Depends on how you feel, it's not "too" high. Some guy like to run it very low, some at about what you're at

    Good numbers aside from HDL

    Sucks that you can't see the total test, but by seeing the free test you should be solid


    Shit, I hope my next BW comes back like this

    I think I'm going to go retest and get the whole free test number.
    Knowing that I'm sitting at 6% of total test I'll be able to figure out what my total test is too.

    My E2 normally runs a little lower and around week 4 I thought I was a little more emotional and bloated.
    I am going to up it a touch and see how I feel.

    Just curious how much I should up it, or if I should do it ED @ say 0.20mg

    Anything I can do about HDL?

    That might work for you, my e2 is just out of whack & seems to be very difficult to control. Yet, before it was just fine & manageable. But, within the last year & after heavy cycling it changed.

    As far as the HDL, I don't think there is a way. Nothing that I know of at least - I'd like to hear a somewhat of a suggestion though

    Strength is up,
    Weight is up 10lbs,
    Waist is smaller,
    I've always been extremely vascular but the the smaller veins are starting to show on my arms, shoulders, chest and legs
    I've had a few comments from family about looking bigger, looking good.

    I would say I'm a tiny bloated as my face isn't getting leaner and neither is my lower abdomen.
    Sex drive is a little down actually but still works.

    You sex drive is down a little? I can't stop thinking about sex on cycle. It's a curse.

    Shit I'm a borderline rapist while cycling haha I like to keep my e2 levels a little higher or I feel like shit and gains seem to come to a halt. Everyone is different though I guess.

    I agree, just need to figure out exactly what to order because I thought I would get the whole numbers with Male Hormone Panel.

    Im actually alittle different with adex/esto levels. When im on trt or small dose cycle my sex drive is good/high. But when i start taking an ai my sex drive drops(even when levels are still in range) so im either sensitive to an ai or my body just likes to run at a higher e2 level. Reason im telling u is when i first started i was told to up my adex dose. Which only made it worse for me. So more isnt always the answer. Also ive noticed over the years sex drive just goes up and down sometimes on cycle. So it could just level out on it's own as long as levels areok.

    Thanks for the input michael.

    I've thought of trying aromasin , have it on hand but I'm not really getting any sides from anything currently which is nice.
    I'm not seeing anyone right now so the sex drive thing doesn't bother me that much.
    Although it would be nice to figure this out now for future reference!

    Open to suggestions
