Progesterone in men
I cant seem to find much info on it on the intraweb.
My last tests had progesterone at 1.4 with a range of <1.4 and I just wanted to educate myself a bit on it.
What are some causes and effects from it? All I have gathered is higher progesterone the lower ur libido is and possibly gyno.
Anybody got any other info?

The only inforamtion I know about it is from guys who have run cycles. They said the high levels of progesterone resulted in less firm erections and decreased libido....like you said. I don't remember what they took for it, cabergoline if I remember correctly. I hear cabergoline is some really nasty stuff for the heart. But I have no first hand info on it though.

hmm i was under the impression cabergoline is for prolactin

Progesterone either lowers estradiol, competes with it or acts as an AI, not sure exacly which one. According to my doctor its not bad having it at the top of the range.
I do know its good for joints.

I'm not sure how available DHT cream is. The next best thing would be having a 4mg per gram T Cream compounded. Using measuring spoons, one could measure out as little as 0.5mg of T applied daily to scrotum, adjusting up based on response.
I've always thought that using DHT might be a good alternative to using anti-aromatase medication, like arimidex. If it worked well, it would be a more natural way of controlling estrogen.

What do you think of DHT's possible use as an anti-aromatase?
