Back pump or kidneys?
Started my 1st cycle of E max, 1 cap 3 times daily, F 5'3 115, was doing great for 2 weeks, now I have low back pain, I mean at times extreme, sometimes manageable. How do I get rid of it, downsized to 2 caps, tried taurine 8 mgs daily, no help. Really don't want to quit cycle.....HELP!

up to 5g taurine (not mg, but i'm sure yours was a mistype), 500mg magnesium, and a bunch of water. sometimes back pumps are caused just from water deficiency. thats all know.

if the taurine/magnesium/water doesn't work, your only choice is to drop the dosage of the PH that you're using. some people just don't respond well to some PH's, while they respond really well to other ones. at 115 pounds, three caps are probably too much for your frame. they were designed for average lifter weight - 160-175 pounds. thats why 200 pounders have to take more to get an effect. its probably one cap too much for you.
try lowering down to 2 caps per day and the taurine/magnesium/water combo and see what happens. if it doesn't go away in two days, you might just want to jump into PCT if you can't muscle through the sides.
being a female, and it more than likely being your first cycle might have something to do with it too.

im not 100 percent sure, but a lot of female bodybuilders who use it develop an enlarged clitoris.
the only thing that doesnt form that (in terms of anabolics) would be low dose anavar and very very low dose winny (but virilization can still occur at certain doses,
will it happen to you? i dont know, but its a definet possibility. and as far as getting your body back to homeostasis im not sure what you would use, because ive never really encountered it before, Possibly 25mg of clomid for a few weeks. but i have no idea.
im just throwing concerns out there for you to think over,

the only anabolic prohormone i would run if i were a woman would be 25mg hdrol but i dont know much about these steroids and PHs on females. but Hdrol haveing very low androgenic activity could more then likely be a better choice

Women don't need to run PCT, some women taper down but that a personal choice.
E-max isn't a very good choice for a woman because it's perhaps the most androgenic OTC product available.
M-drol at 10 mg a day would be a far better choice for a woman determined to do steroids because M-drol has incredible gains with very little androgenic side effects.

Try eating a couple of bananas a day,for the potassium,and drink plenty of water! If it does'nt improve after 3-4 days you might want to drop down to 2 caps a day.
But as Space said,M-drol would be a better option for you,start at 5mg, maybe go to 10mg ED,for 2-3 weeks.

Island, who did you speak with before running this product? Who "sold you on it" so-to-speak?
I think these are important questions to answer for safety reasons. Often times "GNC"-type retail locations sell anything and everything to anyone and everyone. They will basically lie to your face to make a sale with total disregard to your safety/health.

epi is androgenic, as well as anabolic, but i believe it is more androgenic, it happens to female bodybuilders who use some form of juice, even anavar or winny at high doses can cause it, will it happen in one run? who knows, there are just concerns.

its just a concern
4 weeks? probably not, but if she did a few more cycles, even mild ones, it may appear, she needs to know these side effects.
she may be better off a plant extract that increases protein synthesis and nitrogen retention.
she could probably add more fats in her diet and gain quite steadily. even extra Arachadonic Acid could help.
