  1. Yes. Nolvadex can be used to reduce gyno, but it does take time.

In fact, nolva has been hypothesized to treat breast cancer by also reducing IGF-1 expression in mammary fat pads as well as preventing ER-mediated growth
    So would taking IGF-1 along with Tamoxifen during PCT have any ill synergistic effects?

    In only the couple of cycles I've ran so far, I've come to the conclusion that I'm very prone to gyno. If I let it go, my nips will w/o a doubt look like the ones on those medical websites that give info about the surgery...and before/after pics. This happens VERY fast. In fact the last time I had it, when I woke up that morning I had nothing wrong. By the time I was getting ready for bed that night, I had nips the size of silver dollars, all puffed up, etc...

    I always dose 80mg nolva and it usually subsides completely within 4 days. I then just take 20mg EOD....

    Anyways, the point I'm trying to make is given my description here, would using the IGF-1 along with AAS make my condition even worse, or is this something else that you're reffering to?

    Unfortunately, I am very susceptible to gyno too. In theory, by including IGF-1, it may encourage the condition to worsen. I am not certain if any studies have been done on this, but as enistein1905 alluded to with the reduction in IGF via nolvadex, so increasing IGF may not be a wise deicsion. For me personally, this is not a chance I will take.

  5. Could you use the nolva to counter the igf in the breast tissue and possibly prevent the exacerbation of the condition?

    Although IGF-1 is important in breast tissue growth, it's still usually dependent upon estrogen or progesterone or even prolactin (depending on the specific tissue type). So, blocking estrogenic activity at the breast via nolva and using LR3, there shouldn't be any ill effects, but that's no guarantee. i've never had gyno issues while using LR3, but I also always use at least 10mg/day of nolva (20mg/day during pct w/my clomid)

  7. well i found a small lump after about 2 weeks of igf....was the last two weeks of my prop only cycle. had sore nips the whole time, but was using 40 mg + of nolva throughtout it. its a small lump, pisses me off tho. not necessarily the igf, but i didnt have it the 8 weeks prior, was able to stave it off with the nolva....guess igf put it over the top...

    course, once i found it i stopped the igf . figures two days after i stop, this thread comes out and i find out not to do it. oh well.
