    I would like to add that many assume that water retention is estrogen bloat. Water intake, sodium intake and carbohydrates will make a huge difference.

    There was a time where I had been experiencing what some would consider estrogen related water retention. I went and got my estradiol tested and it turned up 5 on a 7.6-42.6 range from the use of and AI. Obviously estrogen was not the issue.

    Estrogen is not always the culprit.

    At that point I was nearly 10%. Not tremendously bloated, just the love handles and hips is where I hold my fat and water.

    Yes, that was too low an E2 for my liking. Point being, IMO, and experience, it is not always estrogen.

    I'm not following your train of thought here. They're both suicidal AIs and I don't see why you think switching to Erase instead of exemestane is a safer alternative or a better idea while not on test.

    How is exemestane safer then erase? Because it can slightly elevate test levels?

    They both elevate test and lower estrogen. The main difference is going to be that Erase is OTC and Exemstane is Rx.
