    Arimidex and e2/dht?

    Since arimidex blocks the conversion of T to E2, would that mean that it drives dht higher since that's the other hormone T coverts to? If not, where does the t go? Does it get expelled or converted into something else? Also, it seems like high prolactin reduces dht by 58 percent in a study I...

    Questions about HCG, Arimidex, and Their Effects

    I have been reading this forum obsessively for the last few weeks. What an incredible group of guys you all are. I have only been on TRT for about 3 months so I am figuring things out. At 2 months my bloodwork looked good and I decided to add HCG because the doc recommended it. So I have...

    Ditch your AI now - you don't need it!

    I'm a long time lurker and haven't posted much (perhaps even never) but I felt I should contribute something in return: I have very mild gyno that I've had most of my life. As soon as my E2 goes up it starts getting sore. That's when I USED to take an arimidex and it would go away. This time...

    Bloating causes by Arimidex?

    Has anybody experienced bloating as a result of too much arimidex? At one time I was on 200mgs a week and 3mg arimidex and STILL had a ton of stomach bloat. It got a lot better when I went to 40mg EOD and .25ai although I still get a little bloat now and again. Should I try my dose of 40mg EOD...

    Feel WAY better with elevated e2

    So for the first 4 months or so of trt at 200mg test cyp per week with minimal ai usage. .25 anastrozole maybe once every 5 days or so, I felt good. Great workouts, insane pumps, crazy libido. Then I started reading on here about trying to stay within the low 20s on e2. So I began using the...

    Liquid Arimidex - what liquid to use?

    I take a tiny amount of anastrazole -- about 0.1mg EOD. I have been cutting up the pills and measuring with a scale. My scale has become flaky and I'm thinking it would be more accurate to dissolve 1mg in 1ml of water and take it that way instead. Yes, I know I could get it compounded into...

    Wildly Different E2 Numbers - LabCorp vs. Quest

    I won't bore everybody with details and fluff - the numbers speak for themselves. Bottom line, Quest and LabCorp E2 numbers are nowhere near each other based on recent lab work I had done (Quest numbers were 2x LabCorp numbers). Be careful if you are managing E2 with only a single lab...
