nolvadex cycle for gyno as option before surgery?
i have had A puffy nipple/gyno on my left side for probably 3 years now. There is no lump, except when my nipples get hard, then my nipple turns into a mass of tissue, almost like there is more tissue to my left nipple than my right one. Its very confusing and frustrating
I have been to the doctor and he said it is in fact a little gyno. Another thing that I noticed is that my nipples, especially the problem one seem to get puffier when I start working out, which means a higher testosterone level, which means a higher estrogen level, which tells me it might be an estrogen issue.
I am looking into taking nolvadex at 20mg for a couple months or something and see if it has any effect. The main things I am worried about though, are that when I stop the nolva, any reduction that I see will come right back.
So, what are your thoughts, suggestions, opinions? Thanks a lot. This **** really bothers me

there no lump yet a doctor said it was gyno? puffy nips doesnt mean u have gyno. im sure this is in ur head. pictures would definitely help.
i would run letro for 2-3 weeks and taper down toward the end, once that is done run nolva for a couple of weeks so theres no estrogen rebound from the letro

it's weird. it looks like gyno when i compare it to pics on the internet. but there is no bump. maybe i am not feeling it good enough.

If your bodyfat is high it may be harder to feel. But if your doc said it's gyno, i'd say you have gyno or else your doc is retarded. The letro protocol outlined above is the best way i've found to combat gyno from my reading.

Don't post on my profile, I don't read that stuff, PM me instead
<------ Hard to believe, but I wasn't on any anabolics in the avatar shot

so something like nolvadex at 20 mgs a day and caber at ??mgs/day for a couple months? will the nolvadex keep me from making gains in the gym?

here are some pics guys
i know it doesn't seem like much in the pics, but there is a definate "band" of tissue and my left nipple is MUCH puffier than my right. I plan on doing low dose nolva for a couple months to see if that helps

since there are no lumps and i also heard that progesterone caused gyno symptoms are more along the line of puffy nipples, enlargement of the nipple area, do u think it could be progesterone gyno? how do i know if it's prolactin, progesterone, or regular gyno?

it's not prolactin gyno bc when I squeeze them nothing comes out. I am thinking its down to progesterone or regular gyno. I'm leaning toward regular.

but even when i'm at a low bf%, it's still the same, and if it's fat, then how come its only on my left side?

Pretty much. The left side of my body has awesome full muscles bellies, while my right side is just lumps of muscle, no real peak on my biceps, my pec is an odd shape, my shoulder is less defined. And the odd thing is that Im right hand dominant, so it really just comes down to luck of the draw on how your bodys shaped.

looks like beginning stage of gyno IMO hit up some 6bromo or ATD
or even try yohimbine HCl it will directly act on the alpha 2 receptors (which are found in chest fat and inner thighs) and increase catecholamine production and fat mobilization.

It looks like gyno to me. The doctor told you it was gyno. I don't think there's much question here.
Who knows if it will come back. You'll have to try and see.
Consider taking raloxifene instead of nolva.
