    nolvadex cycle for gyno as option before surgery?


    hola,
    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.

    anyway....

    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

    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.

    I would say thats not a good idea. Try lose dose Nolva with low dose Caber for 2 months. There seems to be some good results of guys doing this over a longer period of time, than those doing it for 2-3 weeks. Not much will happen.

    I hear ya, I've got the same problem. Cabergoline is used to reduce Prolactin levels in the body. This along side Nolva and you have both bases covered. You could use some Letro but I dont like the idea of killing off all of your estrogen. You still need some for proper functioning.

    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?

    i dont think caber will help reduce your gyno unless you are lactating.

    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.

    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.

    Raloxifene has been shown to be more effective than nolva for treating gyno. I would consider that instead.

    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.

    Beneficial effects of raloxifene and tamoxifen in ...[J Pediatr. 2004] - PubMed Result

    same with torem

    but aside from that study i found that raloxifene will not increase test like nolva (to the same extent) which doesnt make it ideal
