    DHEA + AI only protocol?

    Hello all, DHEA is bottom of range and I would like to bring it up. Problem is, it makes me lose wood at rather low doses from 10mg up. I am not on TRT and having weak adrenals. DHEA above 5mg does only work in combination with HC. My working theory is that DHEA increases estrogens and that's...

    The best method of dialling in Aromasin dosage

    Dialling in your AI dosage can feel a bit like walking a tight rope, especially with Aromasin as crashing your E2 with it is more unforgiving than with Arimidex due to Aromasin's suicidal nature. A study Pharmacokinetics and Dose Finding of a Potent Aromatase Inhibitor, Aromasin (Exemestane)...

    How does Thyroid hormone effect Estrogen and Aromatase?

    I have searched for the answer endlessly and only got conflicting reports . Does Thyroid hormone ( T4,t3) reduce Estrogen or raise it ? What is their effects on the aromatase enzyme ? Thank you . All seems very confusing and I think the TRT/testosterone community could benefit from the correct...

    Hot flashes are unlikely to be a symptom of increasing or increased E2, and more likely to be a symptom of decreases in E2 levels or low E2.

    After reading up a ton of literature on Estrogen effects on males, there's really a whole bunch of realisations about how extremely useful it is in male function and consequently how misunderstood and mishandled it is by men or TRT clinics. I'm glad Nelson seems to have a much better...

    What is the timeline of how quick injectables and AIs affect us?

    For example, if I wanted to see if taking an AI would help with moodiness with my T shots, is it best to take an AI the same day, the day after, the day before? (Would it be better to use it as a "preventative" blocker?) Once you inject testosterone cypionate, do your T levels (and by...

    Considering "micro dosing" AI?

    Weekly shot test cyp(I know), was recommended 48hrs post inject to take.5mg anastrazole. I found I felt much better taking anastrazole about the same time as shot. As it is preventative only, this made sense as the T spiked the ai would alongside. This does leave E perhaps unattended after a...

    I know mixing the anastrozole with vodka for more accurate dosing. My question is, can I mix the AI with regular water? or with a lower-proof alcohol beverage(rice wine)? As I don't have a liquor store open around me. Any help is greatly appreciated, Thanks

    Does Anyone Feel Better on an AI?

    I know this topic has been beaten to death and with a little legwork, I am sure to find dozens of threads on this, so I apologize. But, like many here, I am still perplexed on why most forms of TRT I have tried cause side effects that outweigh the benefits. I have a ton of posts out there, but...

    E2: what is "high" and "low"

    I see so many threads saying "if my E2 is too high or too low I get <x> symptom" but no numbers that show what that really is. My current routine, as an example, is 140 of T per week, injected once and 1mg of AI, once a week. It puts me at 980 at the low (day before shot) for T, and E2 of around...
