    Estrogen!!!

    Just curious what everyone's estrogen is and what were you taking at the time of the estrogen test?
    From everything I've been reading and hearing estrogen is really beneficial for men until you start having issues wich is at different levels for everyone.
    It would seem like I might have a very small window where I feel awesome and then start to feel crappy. I'm going to get a ultrasensitive E2 just to see where everything's at right now and see if I may need to adjust something to raise or lower my E2.
    I will keep everyone posted and let everyone now my results and intended remedy if I think I need one.

    Estrogen is cardio protective at normal ranges and has lots of other benefits to include sex drive and proper brain function.

    If your estrogen is crashed, its very difficult to build muscle....from my experience anyway.

    I like my number to be around 40

    Lots of benefits to it being at least in range if not on the high slide ... personally, I feel better with mine on the higher side. Too high and I get back acne as the first symptom and if it keeps rising, gyno starts to flare up.

    Hey what do you know I agree 👍

    I have been up and down on what number is best and in the end higher around 40-50 is best E2 number for me.

    Higher E2 is better for what we are doing and higher E2 seems to be best for sex drive based on my experience.

    Agreed !! After years of trying to keep mine low i feel much better with it on the slightly higher side of things.

    I'm about 99% sure a low E2/androgen ratio is directly related to a bad lipid profile. Looking at my blood work over the years, my lipids are always worse when I keep my estrogen on the low side even when using compounds that convert easily or if I'm using compounds that don't convert. If I'm using say test only or test/deck and let my estrogen get on the high side, or slightly elevated, my lipids are better. Still not as good as during a long trt only run, but better.

    This.

    Low estrogen can contribute to heart issues for sure...

    This is one reason why women have fewer heart attacks then men.

    Do you think this have to do with you taking less AI? I noticed that my lipids stay in range (on anabolics) as long as I stay away from heavy oral use or taking an AI.

    I'm not sure.
    W
    hen anyone's lipids are way out of whack on AIs, is it directly because of the AI or because they've dropped their estrogen so low with the AI? Because my lipids have been way out of whack with no AIs but on non-aromarizing compounds and very little test. I think higher androgens with little estrogen is bad for the cardiovascular system in general. Pretty much I agree what ldog and montego are saying and my history of blood work backs that up.

    Thanks for all the responses and feedback. I just got my labs done so I should know by next week if anything going on.
    As far as the low E and bad lipids I would agree it's more vecause of the low E and not the AI. My last cycle my E2 was 9 and my lipids were shit I was only taking masteron primo and testosterone. I hate AIs unless I'm in a bind and need something. They make me feel like shit everytime.
