    Controlling estrogen

    What is a good way to control estrogen when anastrazole is too powerful? I was taking 80 mgs of testosterone 2 x a week when my estrogen went through the roof. I started taking .125 mgs of anastrazole 2 x a week and it brought my estradiol down to an 8 and total test was at 854. Can anastrazole...

    9 months into Clomiphene treatment for low test

    Hi All, Hope you are all well, just found this forum and delighted to be a part of it. So I started last June with 25mg every 2 days. From 22nd December my dosage was reduced to 25mg 2 times a week (as my DHT was high causing hair loss). This is prescribed and monitored by a specialist in UK...

    Has Anyone Felt Better After Adding in an AI

    Just a random question that I am curious to hear the answer to. "Better" could mean anything and I would like to hear what better meant for you. I know AIs are used as a last resort so I am not encouraging anyone to take an AI, I really just want to hear experiences.

    Testogel - increased dosage and libido went down

    Dry eyes on testogel?

    Hi guys, Has anyone experienced dry eyes with Testogel? I have been doing a bit of anastrozole as well but quit recently to see if this has to do with low E2. I experienced this after doubling the dose of the gel.

I was only taking the HCG because my wife and I were trying to conceive but we have been successful...

    Arimidex - Pain Caused by Crashing E2 or Another Reason?

    I believe that I've seen a thread that one 1mg dose of Arimidex decreases E2 by about 70% within 24 hours, and then up to 80% when taken on regular basis thereafter. Are we able to extrapolate from that how much a single .25mg does would decrease E2? Would it be about 17.5%? I asked because...

    Planning a PCT

    I plan on running a very low dose(moderate) cycle. I am 21 yo. It is not TRT, I am to reach supraphysiological levels. - 300mg test cyp - small dose of oxandrolone/winstrol (not stacking orals at the same time). My thought was to limit the drugs required for PCT. I do not plan on using clomid...

    AI side effects?

    I had a question regarding the side effects of AI’a and can’t seem to find a consistent consensus regarding side effects. I am aware that there can be side effects from the usage of AIs, from my understanding the sides are from crashing estradiol to an unhealthy level. Most of the negatives...

    In a mild panic, did I just OD on anastrazole?

    So, funny story. (For those that aren’t me lol) I keep my Arimidex on the left, viagra on the right. Evidently during cleaning my wife swapped them not knowing. I took 3 and thought man, I’m getting low. (I wasn’t but hindsight - wrong bottle) so I’m aware the dosage for full blown cancer...

    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...

    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...
