    thoughts on my bloodwork?

    I ran a test E cycle 3 months ago: 600 ng a week/6 weeks

    I was feeling fine until recently: acne, lethargic. low mood.

    I got my bw results back

    I know total test is considered low, but to be honest that is high for me. my baseline is usually 360-380 and I feel fine.

    Your FSH seems a little low. Do you have your TSH, T3, T4, Free Test numbers?

    Your cycle was only half as long as it should have been. Pretty much useless to be honest.
    Did you run ancillaries? HCG , adex, etc?
    Do a pct?
    Without pre-cycle Blood Work it's hard for us to tell whay your norm is but if 360-380 is your norm then 412 is basically the same. A snapshot in time.
    You did not test free T which is what's important as it's this that works for you. Total is kinda irrelevant.
    Estradiol is geared to women and innacurate in men. Always run a Sensitive E2 Assay for accuracy.

    The way you feel now at 3 months post cycle could be related to anything, not necessarily hormones.

    Sensitive e2 tests are for anything lower then 5. Instead of it saying <5 it would give you the actual number

    Without seeing a range on the FT I'm unable to comment. Standard estradiol is geared to women who's estrogen run higher than men and does not accurately gauge a mans lower levels. It can be accurate and it can be wildly inaccurate as well, which is where the problem lies. All the top docs in the industry will strongly encourage you to obtain a sensitive assay if at all possible.

    Problem is most docs don't understand this along with the test is much more expensive than standard estradiol.

    either way, is it safe to say we can rule out high E2 as the culprit. been doing some research seems like sensitive e2 essay is lower typically compared to serum E2
