    Estrogen in males The hormones testosterone and estrogencontribute to your body’s overall function. They need to be balanced in order for your sexual function and characteristics to work typically. If they’re not balanced you may notice some unusual symptoms. Estrogen is typically called the “female” hormone. Testosterone is called the “male” hormone. This isn’t entirely accurate as both are present in everyone’s bodies. But higher amounts of testosterone tend to be present in biologically male bodies. And higher amounts of estrogen tend to be present in biologically female bodies. Estrogen is key to the development of sexual functions and characteristics in women during adolescence. This includes menstruation and the reproductive cycle. It helps maintain that function throughout life. It’s similar for men. But a particular form of estrogen known as estradiolTrusted Source is especially crucial to male sexuality. Testosterone is the most significant hormone to male sexual development and function. But estrogen needs to stay in balance with testosterone to help control sex drive, the ability to have an erection, and the production of sperm. Testosterone naturally decreases as men age, while estrogen increases. This isn’t much to be concerned about unless your estrogen levels are abnormally high. This can be a risk factor for conditions like diabetes and certain forms of cancer. Let’s get into what normal and abnormal estrogen levels are for males, what symptoms you should watch out for, what can cause abnormal estrogen levels, and what you can do about it. What are normal estrogen levels in men? There are two main types of estrogen in men: estrone and estradiol. The amounts are measured in picogram per milliliter (pg/ml). The typical averages of each are: Estrone Estradiol Prepubescent male Undetectable–16 pg/ml Undetectable–13 pg/ml Pubescent male Undetectable–60 pg/ml Undetectable–40 pg/ml Adult male 10–60 pg/ml 10–40 pg/ml Symptoms of high estrogen levels in men Here are some of the main symptoms of high estrogen levels in men: Infertility. Estrogen is one of the hormones your body uses to produce sperm. High estrogen levels can slow down sperm production and make it harder to create healthy sperm. Gynecomastia. Increased estrogen can cause more breast tissue to develop than normal. High levels can lead to the development of a condition called gynecomastia. This happens when the amount of breast fat tissue is abnormally high. Erectile dysfunction (ED). Increased estrogen levels can affect the balance of hormones that are needed to help get an erection and stay erect. This is especially true if you also experience low testosterone. Slowed growth. Too much estrogen can result in short stature or delayed puberty in boys. Epiphyseal closure. This can happen in adolescents with high estrogen, causing boys to have short stature Other possible symptoms of low estrogen that may happen along with other hormone imbalances include: reduced sex drive reduced sperm concentration in semen feeling exhausted losing hair all over your body shrinking muscle mass reduced growth of penis and testicles loss of bone density (osteoporosis) sudden feeling that you’re hot (hot flashes) having trouble focusing Causes of high estrogen in men Your body can produce a lot of estrogen alone or in addition to lower levels of testosterone. Some medications and substances that can raise your estrogen levels include: certain antibiotics herbs or other natural substances, such as gingko or ginseng phenothiazines (a medication used for mental health conditions) High estrogen is also passed down through your genes. And some health conditions can raise your estrogen levels, such as: stress weight gain or obesity some tumors diseases that affect the liver conditions that affect hormone balances, such as hypogonadism Symptoms of low estrogen in men Low estrogen levels in men aren’t a big cause for concern. But some of the same symptoms of high estrogen can happen if you don’t have enough estrogen. This is because estrogen imbalances can result from hypogonadism, a condition that results in a lack of hormone production in your body. Hypogonadism can lower levels of estrogen, testosterone, and other hormones, leading to many of the same symptoms of high estrogen levels. Causes of low estrogen in men Low estrogen due to hypogonadism can have a number of possible causes, including: autoimmune conditions like Addison’s disease or hypoparathyroidism genetic disorders like Turner syndrome or Klinefelter syndrome infections of the sexual organs, such as mumps kidney or liver conditions testicles that don’t descend an overabundance of iron in your blood (hemochromatosis) exposure to radiation having surgery on your penis or testicles human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) conditions that affect the pituitary gland sarcoidosis tuberculosis histiocytosis having obesity rapid weight loss not getting enough basic nutrients and vitamins brain surgery tumor growing on or close to your pituitary gland Diagnosing high or low estrogen A doctor will have you take a laboratory blood testif they believe you may have either high or low levels of estrogen. For this, you’ll go to a laboratory that collects samples, and someone who’s trained to take samples will use a needle and vial to collect the blood for testing. You should receive your results in about a week. You’ll see your blood estrogen levels shown in measurements of picograms per milliliter (pg/mL). Once you get your results, your doctor will let you know what you’ll need to do next. If they’re normal, you won’t necessarily need to do anything. But if your levels or high or low, your doctor will recommend the next steps to help get your estrogen levels balanced.

    I know a lot of us have challenges getting blood work in Canada and are always looking for an easier way. There is an app/website called Maple, it connects you with a doctor for $49 and they can order any lab tests you want. You get a PDF of the req, take it to any lab and it gets uploaded. I'm Ontario at least if you are under 40 OHIP does not classify blood work as a medical necessity so you just have to give the doctor a reason. I said I took exogenous testosterone and want to make sure everything is good, however he said if you were starting or stopping a supplement, starting or stopping a medication or using hormones are all legit reasons. I got the lab req on Friday and just went to get my blood drawn this morning. I requested Glucose, hbA1C, creatinine, sodium, potassium, alt, potassium, ALT, alk. Phosphatase, bilirubin, lipid assessment, urinalysis, CBC, TSH, free T3 and T4, calcium, chloride, AST, CRP, PSA, SHBG, Estradiol, free testosterone and total testosterone. $49 is well worth it not to sit in my doctor's waiting room for an hour just to be turned down or have them refuse some of the tests.

    I'm not worked up at all, but that's hardly the issue. To be 100% candid, I'm very concerned. "i’m causing shitstorms from a simple theory i’ve posted, that’s not my problem." Yes, yes it is. The problem that you don't see it as YOUR problem is THE problem. Sure, there are others here that have lost their temper and 'raged', that's a fair point. Most would agree that this wasn't necessary and could have been handled better. I can agree with that. What's missing though is any hint of acknowledgment of your contribution to the issue. I sincerely suggest that you really work on trying to get a handle on this and not just lip service, real insight. You don't owe anyone here anything, so you don't have to be contrite, sheepish or apologetic. But your ongoing, continual and complete deflection of basically all criticism fuels the rage you're seeing hurled in your direction. This doesn't make it right, fair enough, but the fuel is coming from YOU. You have to get on top of this. Otherwise, you're heading in a really bad direction - for real. I'm quite sure you could get enormous support here. Life-changing levels I'd say. But you gotta get a grip on this.

    @eightyeight14 you got lucky my friend, remember about a month ago we spoke about the information you give people well this is one of those time’s , it’s great it didn’t cause I’ll effects of you , but it absolutely does not mean in any way it’s safe to go there ever, especially when using orals , we work to keep our values as close to normal as possible that’s why we run our orals for short periods , our main goal is to reduce stress on our liver . We do this as safe as possible to stay as healthy as possible while doing this. And man don’t take shit that you don’t know what it is . That’s what kills people.

    No, what we learned is that "you" can reach 800 without problems. Since everyone reacts differently to basically everything, that dosage of whatever you took might have caused liver failure or death to someone else. Or death just from reacting to whatever you took in other ways (overdose, heart failure, ect.). We also learned that you should not take stuff that you have no idea what it is.

    There is another crapumentary on Netflix called 'What the Health.' It is also just pro-vegan propaganda bovine excrement. Journalistic integrity is a critically endangered value these days. Rather, they seem to be activists with an axe to grind. Question everything and do your own research!

    I've tried everything under the sun for acne but nothing short of accutane has ever worked for me, until this. It's a very potent antimicrobial that I happened upon while Googling and figured I'd give it a shot. I never imagined a topical solution would work this well but I'm 2 weeks in with linear improvement daily. That never happens. I dilute it with regular shower soap and use it on my back with a loofah. You don't need much. Just thought I'd share!

    Brother I’m not trashing you or anything like that but facts are , your diet is absolutely horrible , your training is spotty at best , your throwing hormones around like your just grabbing a beer , your doses tell me you haven’t done the research you let on , this is all a train wreck , if you came to me I would have put you on a proper diet and your would have had to show me you could stick into it for a minimum of 3 months spot on, then I would have done a training routine to see how you did with it , see still no mention of gear , then if I seen some results in 6-8 months I would have introduced one compound and got you to run it at a reasonable dose just a bit higher than trt. Hell what do I know.

    Ummm, no we haven't all been there. But the more important point is that you keep missing the friggin' point. Yes, people do stupid shit and can learn from their mistakes, fine. Not the point. The point is that your implication that having liver values like that means that most people could bounce back from that and therefore we may be over-worrying about liver toxicity is spectacularly obtuse. I strongly suggest you humbly reflect on why you seem to cause shitstorms repeatedly. It's called introspection, but I don't think you can do that, and that is essentially the problem in a nutshell. And channeling the immortal Jim Lahey - there will be a shit cloud following you wherever you go until you figure this shit out.

    Yes, I’ve had regular bloodwork started before I used anything. And now he does all my on cycle bloodwork. No issues yet, aside from marginally high rbc which is normal for what I do. but he’ll tell me if my health is changing. Bloods, ultrasounds, ecg’s regularly at no cost...I’ll take it. It’s good to know. He’s never judged me. If anything he’s curious about what I’m doing. He’s actually a natural lifter. Once he asked me where I get my test and I said black market he told me he’d feel better if I got it from him. So now I do. Trt anyway. He’s got the best juice Last check up he asked me what it feels like to have the test levels of 5 men. He was genuinely curious. Lol, it feels good Doc.

    First time I told my family dr I was using she had no idea what I was talking about lol. Only thing he/she can do when you told them is help you with whatever you need man. They are not out there to judge you, I always think it's a good thing to talk about what you are using. In my case I just asked her to see an endo, then I never saw her again haha, there are not specialized at all, but it can be a good way to get blood work fast if he/she understands

    Yes ! You absolutely come clean to your family doctor , that’s the man/ woman that keeps you alive and healthy and orders tests , if you become sick he needs to know what he’s up against shouldn’t even be a question.

    No man , you need to take criticism from people who have been there , we aren’t going to just tell you what you want to hear and pat you on the head and say good job , these hormones are serious things , we want you to have health and longevity in this , also we have newbies that come in here and read these things and some are quite impressionable, we don’t want them thinking some of this information is ok , then we have to try to fix a person that took this lightly and went down a rabbit hole he regrets because he got bad information. We like to guide people in the right direction of doing things safely and healthy. It’s nothing personal just we have other members to look after too.

    Used their Test E 400 and injections were smooth and no pip at all! Im really liking this type of oil, I use pharma grade T for TRT and the oil is so thick its not even funny, way better with MCT

    I've used their sustanon, enanthate400 and dhb, all with their "new" carrier oil (mct). Very smooth, faster inject rate with a 25g pip, and no lumps of oil sitting around in the muscle waiting to be absorbed. It's all good.

    This being an exception to the rule, I believe yes - BUT I wouldn't say its the fasted cardio doing the extra work, its the drugs you've added with specific timing. I went through many preps believing fasted cardio was the be all end all - my original coach had a very old school approach, and this was a fundamental aspect for him. And its not to say it doesn't work - because I was lean and placed well in my shows. BUT what most people don't think about is the detrimental effect that sacrificing sleep can have on your recovering ability. Working with larger name coaches where they stress much more on recovery and training performance - you'll not only retain more strength and muscle throughout a prep... but you'll find the change in cardio won't make a difference. Because you'll still be in a calorie deficit.
