865758 tn?1285952904 Previous to that my OB/GYN diagnosed me with low estrogen. My estradiol level was 42. When my endo doc ran the TPO antibody test he also checked my testosterone levels and they have come back high. Does the thyroid cause all these other imbalances as well? My endo suggested peri menopause because of the Hashimoto's and I have all the symptoms but afraid that it is just the thyroid messing everything up.
Avatar m tn ve read that they do have a little, the same way women have some testosterone. If you want to try estrogen, after giving the testosterone a trial and if you find it does nothing, call the same doc who prescribed the testosterone and tell him that it's not doing anything, and ask about getting an estrogen prescription.
Avatar n tn I just test my testosterone level and it went up quite a bit from 211 to 512 in a month . However my estrogen level is still have kind of in 45 so my Testosterone to estrogen ratio is quite high ,it should be some where around 20s ... I still have ache body/ joint pain.which can be from high estrogen or could be my thyroid is mess up. I need to check.
Avatar m tn This is just my amateur 2 cents worth (I am not a doctor) I think having too little estrogen can mess up your sex drive just as too little testosterone can. If you have too much or too little this is where the problems seem to be.
Avatar n tn Letrozole is an estrogen blocker per se, prevents the conversion of the body's male hormones to estrogen and therefore slows maturation of the bones,It is used in breast cancer and tends to lower the body's estrogen and may raise testosterone levels, it is sometimes used with growth hormone. however it can also affect the liver and use of it is controversial in regards to its true benefit.
1139187 tn?1355706647 I went from my hormone doctor to my internal med guy - he agreed to stay on the testosterone and the estrogen blocker. He said that as low as my testosterone was (215, range 400-800) that i need the testosterone. He is the guy that diagnosed me but i wouldnt trust him at all with treatment.
Avatar m tn Hi, Do I take that you have not had any contact with a gay man yet or are these only feelings? are you still having sex with your wife? have you thought of having therapy of some kind of sex counselling, as then you could talk this over with an expert. Some men go through this phase, as long as you have not turned the corner then just keep having sex with your with to keep you on the straight and narrow healthy man, women sex life.
Avatar f tn I have problems with my pituitary gland and this has caused insufficiency of cortisol from my adrenal glands. I am being treated with this with Hydrocortone but with this my testosterone levels is low as is my Free Androgen Index is also low. I am now on transdermal patch of testosterone to try to ignite my libido which has been non-exsistent for years. the dose of 300mg is not enough but my doctor does not want to up dosage.
Avatar n tn Testosterone comes from your testes as well as from the adrenal glands so they should check out the adrenals as well. Both estrogen and testosterone are redundant systems. Estrogen and testosterone are very related (you know how when a baby is formed, the same parts go to form the ovaries and testes, so it just a matter of how much of each hormone which gives us characteristics).
110491 tn?1274481937 In women without ovaries, all testosterone and estrogen requires the precursor androstenedione; this precursor is synthesized by the adrenal cortex. This is why even post-menopausal women have some estrogen and testosterone. I don't have much of the first one and none of the other.
Avatar m tn As I understand it, when one injects testosterone (lets say Testosterone Enanthate) the body converts (with an enzyme) the excess testosterone into estrogen. The pituitary gland also senses this huge influx of testosterone and sends a message to the testes in the form of Oestrogen to shut down the bodies natural production of testosterone.
Avatar m tn I read clomid is a serm or an estrogen blocker and also heard it is weaker compared to nlovadex? I think that is how you spell it. I read guys that weren't successful on clomid were successful on it so hope that helps. I also heard about guys using hcg to help jump start their natural test production. I am in the low normal range too and have some symptoms of low testosterone, but they are improving with lifestyle changes. I just retested today so hopefully they went up.
Avatar m tn Since you are overweight, one possibility is that you have estrogen dominance and T replacement may further increase the estrogen levels, but your doctor must have considered this issue already.May be he wants to try it on a short term basis to test its efficacy. So, it is better to get these points clarified from him. By the way, what was your T levels?, did you check your free T?.
Avatar n tn I am extremely depressed and am suffering with hypothyroidism, low testosterone, too much estrogen, high cholesterol and low Vitamin D what is wrong with me? I originally thought that everything here is linked to depression from stress and anxiety so I started taking Lexapro for the depression. But my wife thinks that maybe all of these things are linked to a health issue. About 11 months ago I was diagnosed with high cholesterol and low thyroid, so I am taking red rice yeast and .
Avatar m tn In particular, hormones added to meats and poultries can inhibit testosterone production while encouraging the production of estrogen, which is the female hormone. Elevated levels of estrogen in men cause them to take on more feminine characteristics. In fact, when estrogen levels in men are higher than they should be, it can bring about a whole slew of unwanted and potentially dangerous side effects.

Avatar m tn These pellets are implanted under the skin of my hip. I get estrogen and testosterone. Estrogen for hot flashes, night sweats, dry skin, anxiety. moodiness. Testosterone for my sex drive. Prior to the pellets, I was on estrogen and managed those symptoms. For 16 years, I had little sex drive. The testosterone pellets drastically changed my life for the better. Desire, lubrication and orgasm skyrocketed. BHRT comes in different methods of delivery.
Avatar f tn HRT implant may be a good option if they will give you a high enough d5osage of estrogen especially with the first few implants since you have probably been estrogen deficient for awhile. 25 to 50 mg estrogen would seem reasonable to start.
Avatar m tn , if so, it can be a source for testo to estrogen conversion. By the way, all is not wrong with estrogen, some desired level is required for the body.
Avatar f tn So was mine for 16 years after my hysterectomy. You can get it back with Testosterone and estrogen. I did and it's better than ever! I believe in quality of life and my quality of life is incredible once I added the Testosterone to the estrogen. The method of delivery I chose are pellets inserted under the skin of my hip. It's done in my doctors office and takes about 10 minutes. Now I want and enjoy sex more than ever in my life!
Avatar n tn Were any other androgen levels tests - LH, FSH, dhea sulfate, any testosterone levels, or SHBH? Estrogen and testosterone are related and estrogen comes from multiple sources.

368646 tn?1208393887 Researchers are concerned that DHEA supplements may cause high levels of estrogen or testosterone in some people. This is important because testosterone may play a role in prostate cancer, and higher levels of estrogen are associated with an increased risk of breast cancer. It is not yet known for certain if supplements of estrogen and testosterone, or supplements of DHEA, also increase the risk of developing these types of cancer.
Avatar m tn Make sure that you check your estrogen levels and ensure your body isn't converting the testosterone into estrogen. After a long period of use (3yrs) this happened to my spouse and it threw him into a severe case of andropause (male menopause) with horrible side effects. We tried every doc on our HMO ands finally had to pay cash and go to a private doc who specializes in male hormone therepy.
