Nolva During Havoc
i guess u can say i am gyno-prone...i ran havoc once before stupidly with no PCT and got some signs of gyno...puffiness, pain - but no lump. i believe i also have some pubertal gyno...anyway i wan to run havoc again but this time do it properly so im thinking is it alright if i run 10mg of nolva ED + 40/40/20/20 PCT? and the havoc 20/20/30/30..thanks

Hmmmm. First, how old are you? Secondly, I would say if you're gyno prone, chances are you'll get some of it again. U sure you're not just a little chubby, cause you should be eating extra calories when you're on?
Lots of people use Epi for gyno reduction, but I have a friend who grew boobs
on 30 of Epi after only 2 weeks. Everyone responds differently to different compunds. He then took Mass Tabs later and dried out and actually seemed to lose his gyno.......................... go figure.
If you run Epi (havoc) again, I'd run the first 2 days at 10, then 20 for the next 5 and see how the nips feel. If Ok after that, 30-40 seems to be the best. 40 might aggravate gyno so I'd stick with 30 and as for Nolva, I'd say 20 a day is good and there's no need to taper down. 40 is kinda high for Nolva, IMO but I'm sure someone more knowledgeable will chime in and help out some more.

yeah i am rather "chubby" since i was a kid so i guess that has something to do with it...but i am unsure why that contributes to gyno??

Hate to sound like I'm from BBing.com, but you're just too young, I think.
Try a good natty test booster like T-Bol, Hypertest or Tribosten (it worked for me, Im different, ok?) if anything.
You got a shi_tload of test coursing through you now. Eat alot of lean red meat, brown rice (no white carb, cept PostWO) fruits, veggies and some sat fats, like in good steak, mayo or olive oil, some chicken and fish, if you can do fish and just train hard like 3 days a week and take time off to recover and you should make gains.
Maybe a good creatine mono like Creapure (Optimum Nutrition sells it, if you can't find it), maybe a PreWO mix like White Flood, Supercharge or Superpump and some bulk BCAA's and you should see gains. If not, you gots a problem. You build up your upper chest with inclines and the sides with crossovers and you'll reduce it the appearance of the gyno.
Stay away from sugar, bad fast food and train heavy............assuming your joints are well and just keep at it.
PH/DS is overkill right now IMHO.
When you get to my age, then think about it.

if you run epi and are prone use nolva at 10mg ed and use something else for PCT, not sure if your on it for 4-6 weeks on cycle if it will kinda drop off in effectivneess during post cycle in terms of recovery. so grabs some clomid and an OTC AI for PCT and you should be good to go

If I'm so prone to gyno that I need to run a serm while on an epithio, I need to look elsewhere for ways to increase mass and strength. Pros don't outweigh cons in this scenario. Eh, maybe I'm being too conservative

I gots the same problem. The fat makes your chest look.....................well, like a boob. The deposits conglomerate around the nipple, usually.
Drop the BF, build up the outer/lower chest and you can reduce it w/o PH's or anything.
When my BF gets real low, my chest looks much better. Even the pros look like they have a touch 'o gyno when "offseason."
21 is too f_cking young for hormonal manipulation, in my book. It's like adding water to the ocean with an eyedropper.

I agree that in MOST cases 21 is too young. I've grown up with testosterone levels on the bottom 1/4 of the scale...low 300's. I could never gain any considerable muscle mass even with extremely fine toothed diet/consistent workout programs. I would up the calories and gain fat, not muscle. Havoc was an amazing and worthy experience for me. I gained 20lbs the first time I used it. However, if you are a normal young guy with levels in the 800-1200ng/dl and a low SHBG, you should be making gains like crazy without any DS. Hell, if you are 20 years old, havoc is going to seem less effective than it will to older guys because your natural T is already so high. Most of my friends that have tried havoc with consistent routines gained half of what I gained.
I'm now looking at hopefully getting on TRT so I can experience what its like to be 20 years old.
The the OP, if you are gyno "prone" then you need to have your gyno removed or you need to try running something like letrozole to reduce it as much as possible. I wouldn't mess with any hormones unless its straight testosterone with an AI. Running analogs like havoc, superdrol, anadrol, d-bol, winny, without testosterone base and controlled AI is dangerous because of the fluctuations that are occuring as your body shuts down its baseline LH.
I don't care what anyone says about havoc NOT aromatizing. It doest matter. Crap happens. I've seen blood tests with estradiol in the 20's pre-havoc and estradiol in the 50's on havoc. It might not be direct conversion of the compound to estrogen, it may be your body just freaking out...who knows. What happens in the lab isn't always what happens to the body. The DS are chemical analogs that are not bioidentical to your body. Superdrol makes some people lethargic, it made me anxious and wired/isomnia.

I don't understand why all you guys recommend tapering up on doses...it wont mitigate any sides that the individual is prone to...start the recommended or desired dose the first day and continue throughout the entire cycle...
running epistane/havoc for 4 weeks is a waste of money...run it for 8.
09-04-2009, 11:09 PM
I shouldn't even waste time commenting, but...
20mg for me might be just as effective as 40mg for you....alot depends on bodyweight, receptors, blood pressure, gyno prone, etc... Why would you ever start out at 30/40mg per day if you've never ran the compound before? The blood levels are going to build up MUCH quicker and you may end up with much unwanted side effects and not know if its from the actual compound or too much of the compound!
I started Epi at 20mg for 2 week and had huge gains...when I bumped up to 40 (the idealistic sweet spot) I realized that it was the additional 10mgs that caused my higher blood pressure, cramps, water retention, and joint pain. I then determined that the sweet spot for me was simply 30mg.
Its imperative to start out low so that you can asses the side effects before increasing the product.
And as far as 4 weeks being a waste of money...well its a waste of money for people that don't know how to build muscle efficiently. I gained 16lbs on my first cycle and walked away with 12 solid lbs in only 31 days of use at 20/20/30/30.
IMO 8 weeks is a waste of money! First, its becomes compoundingly toxic to your liver each week on a methyl. Secondly, gains tend to taper after the 4th week. Third, you'll experience far more HPTA suppression which will yield far less retention of your gains and require a longer (more expensive) PCT with possibly more expensive consquences. You might gain an additional 4lbs during the second half of that 8 week cycle, but then you'll more than likely loose it in the end because of the shutdown you'll experience. Extending past the 5 week mark would only be worth it if you were on a testosterone base for a good while (12wks).
On top of all this, let me advise that I only used 10mg of SD for 7 days and had an ALT in the 600's. I would NEVER recommend ANY methyl for longer than 4-5weeks, without taking a break to let the liver detox.

Again, I just feel that Havoc is so mild for me personally that i need to run 2 bottles of it..at 30mgs a day, 2 bottles is about 8 weeks...
The liver is a strong organ that has an amazing ability to repair..running methyls for longer than 5 weeks in a HEALTHY PERSON will not yield any long-term damage...in my opinion of course

The fatter you are the more gyno will be pronounced, if there's any there at all.
I see people who have it and think they don't and those that don't have it and think they do.

everytime i read the word gyno... my nuts run and hide! ha ha ha! just kidding. hey, props to you monsterbox, you seem to know your stuff man! ill keep following your advice
09-07-2009, 04:16 PM
yea id say u mostly only get it fro m cycles only some of us have a bit from puberty
its kinda funny if u seen kung pow enter the fist were he calles the asian guy king of the big dark nipple people yea i was called that for a while in my teens but i never know what gyno was till i started researching and joined AM
09-07-2009, 04:40 PM
I still don't understand? Are most of you guys getting gyno from not knowing what your doing as in, not having a SERM/powerful AI on standby? Or, did you just randomly develop it even when trying to stop it with a SERM?
All this gyno stuff is nerve racking....I mean, it seems that if everyone had the golden rule of keeping nolvadex for immediate relief it could be administered at the on-set of gyno symptoms and no one would ever develop full blown gyno.
09-07-2009, 04:56 PM
Test gives me gyno but letro fixes it immediately.
I'm just talking about sensitive nips and a lump, but all of my gyno has gone away each time. There is a tiny leftover lump under each nipple now so if i do anything that gives me gyno again I know it'll flare up and get sensitive and the lump will get bigger again. But currently it is "Inactive" and not noticable at all.
Mostly answered PM's
Don't post on my profile, I don't read that stuff, PM me instead

I had a small lump which was extremely sensitive and painful at times I couldn't even sleep on it.. Did 4 weeks EPIdrol 20mg ED with Nolva 10mg EOD throughout and for PCT.. No more gyno whatsoever, lump/pain/sensitivity/puffiness all gone..
Im actually thinking Epi pulse would make a great PCT if symptoms ever come back (it's been months since I lost the gyno symptoms)
09-07-2009, 10:10 PM
hmm, i've never had pain/tenderness/itching, but I do have small lumps behind my nipples, way deep in there. They aren't large enough to show through my nipples or anything...i never noticed these until after my first cycle of havoc. So I can't tell if havoc created them or if they've been there forever. Seems like I would have known if I was getting gyno from the compound because it would have been sore right? Maybe we all have small lumps to begin with??
