    low estrogen killing sex drive?

    Running 1200 test right now and all of a sudden my sex drive is gone.
    Got bloods and test was 5000+ but estrogen was <15.
    I've been running anastrozole at .75 3xweek. It's just the standard liquid stuff from a peptide vendor.
    I'm guessing the low estrogen is the issue. Never ran into this before.
    The plan is to lay off the anastrozole for awhile and see if that helps.
    Anybody have any experience/input?

    too much AI brother .. as Test goes up in the body your Estrogen is supposed go up as well, you need to keep a balance ratio. if test goes up while E goes down, then your sex drive will suffer. not only that but Anastrozole all on its own is suppressive to the sex drive.
    plus your stuff could be over dosed. I'd cut it out for a week or two and re-adjust

    Bro, the OP Is running Arimidex . Anastrozole is the chemical name while Arimidex is the brand name, its the same thing.

    and yes it will shut down all sorts of Aromatization and keep estrogen super low especially if you start it at the beginning of a cycle like he is doing ,, and especially at the doses you two are both running.

    Thats because .25 is a reasonable starting dose 1mg per week .. some of these guys are taking 2-3x that. guys are abusing the AI's more then the actual steroids now a days.

    I will correct that though, no issues other than being bloated as fuck. But i lowered my carbs a little and I’m golden now.

    I took GH advice and I have cut out my AI but kept a close watch on any estrogen sides. I have been on TRT and cycled a lot so this is not for the guys that just start out. I can say that I feel 10 times better without it. I am not gyno prone and my bloodwork came back great. So it is on a case by case basis.
