I have had some issues with digestion lately. I have had them in the past too. My stomach had been MUCH better the last several months with help from a doc but recently it was like I went back to my old issues, one being major constipation.
I was racking my brain today and doing some research and realized I’m pretty confident my issues may be stemming from too low of estrogen. I read that low estrogen leads to less bile production and causes a backup In the small intestines which can lead to awful stomach problems and constipation.
My last e2 blood work came back at 8, which is def low. I’maways so focused on not getting gyno, that sometimes I think I overdue it. Right now I also have lots of pain in my left wrist which I think is tied to it as well.
So I went and pulled bloods and we will see where I’m at. Stopped my Adex until I get results.
This also led me to another question. I have done cycles of 600 test before and used same amount of adex I was on and e2 was fine. Even at the beginning of this cycle when I had 6 week bloods done it was up in range. So it got me to thinking, when we are at a low body fat, like I am now after a big cut, I wonder if less adex is needed to control estrogen. I guess that would make sense considering I know higher body fat leads to more estrogen related sides. May be something to think about your next cutting cycle and see if your bloods show the same
This is just some food for thought and maybe will help someone else who may have similar issues. I’m always learning and this was sort of an “AHAAAAA” moment. The light bulb clicked haha.
