I'm 27 y/o and just started HRT with Testosterone Cypionate shots (50 mg twice weekly) do i need nolvadex as well? my doc didn't prescribe it. Thanks.. oh and if you have something negative to say then piss off & don't bother... pz
Stay away from nolvadex and clomid. Long term side effects are not known and keeping track of estrogen is near impossible when using SERMs.
You have to cycle HCG.
is E2 free (unbound) estrogen? what dose would you recommend for arimidex if i was to use it for preventative maintenance, i'm just afraid if i get gyno i won't be able to reverse it without a plastic surgeon which i can't afford. i think i stated the dose on T i'm on earlier but it's Test Cyp. (IM), 50mg mondays & thursdays (2x week)... thanks
Avoid alcohol or drugs which prevent the liver from clearing estrogen from the body because its too busy de- toxing the body from these alien substances
you will get a rise in E because as T rises so do E, just the way the body works. If you show no signs of excess estrogen then taking something like arimidex is not necessary -if it aint broke dont fix it-so to speak, however using something like the above you may wish to consider.
if you can get a blood test for E2 , then you have something to work from .I suggest within 24 hours of your injection and just prior to your next, then you will see how it peaks and troughs and if it is within the reference range set by the lab for a man Similarly your test levels can be measured like this too.
goood info...just starting to go through this whole sorta thing...low test that is.
Hey ProfBush, is your hCG insured? I just started on some, but I can't afford it at the current price every couple of months.
My pharmacist has been having trouble getting the Pregnyl brand which, according to the insert, is good for 60 days. I have been using Novarel and just upping the dose a little bit during the second 60 days. I can't see any difference even though the Novarel insert says it is only good for 30 days.
