Definetely getting bloods done but just making sure do I do them on this week or wait till my 6th week is complete then take them going into the 7th?, also when's best to take the blood before injection/after injection ? . The blood I'm Getting is from medichecks . Com and the test I went for was testosterone and oestradiol one? Is this correct?

I don't get why you get bloods done mid-cycle but oh well..

I'm getting bloods mid cycle to see how my test levels are and also to see if I'm taking the correct dose of ai (arimidex). When the results are in I can then either up my ai or lower it to suit the dose of test in my body. The pros tell me the correct way to do it is pre/mid and end bloods. Just trying to do things right.

Test levels should be through the roof so why bother?

Correct dose of AI should be observed by side effects or lack there of, as well as mood. So if you have a lot of bloat, puffy nipples or on the opposite end your joints are aching and you are dried out it should be noticeable. Labs are just numbers, it's mainly symptoms that you look for when dealing with e2.

I mean you can get your e2 checked but get into the habit of getting a "feel" for what your e2 levels are. Because it is going to be a pain to keep having to get labs every week to see if you e2 is fine or not.

Well doing it right is one thing you are being careful I understand that. Just keep in mind there isn't much to get from those labs, it is your money do as you wish with it. More important is checking your BP and heart rate.

Read more and become confident in what you are doing. The more you understand what is going on the better you will be at making the "correct decision." I see getting labs mid-cycle as an unnecessary expense, not saying it is bad or incorrect but what info are you really going to be getting.
