    Thumbs up Toremifene Cycle with bloodwork


    Not too long did a month long Haloplex cycle which was followed up with a torem PCT. You can check it out here (nevermind can't post a link) if you are interested. You can see that the torem brought my boys back within a week and my libido was through the roof. So after that observation I starting researching SERM only cycles. I am sure many are aware that some have actually done this already with great results if executed correctly. From what I have researched, one can boost their test levels significantly and even well beyond the normal healthy range. However, this is not my goal. My goal is simply to boost my test levels to the top of the normal range by taking the smallest dose possible. Torem doesn't have many side effects regardless but I am not expecting to gain 10 pounds in a month. I am just trying to get a slight edge over an extended period of time of several months if all goes well. So without further adue I will begin documenting my blood work here. Any input is greatly appreciated.

    Normal Ranges
    t
    est 348 - 1197
    Estradiol 7.6 - 42.6
    LH 1.7 - 8.6
    FSH 1.5 - 12.4
    AST 0 - 40
    ALT 0 - 44

    Before (taken at noon)
    Test 645
    estradiol 41
    LH 4.4
    FSH 3.5
    AST 25
    ALT 28

    1 week (taken early afternoon)
    test 827
    estradiol 26.8
    LH 7.9
    FSH 5.4
    AST 25
    ALT 33

    As you can see the the response is rapid. LH, FSH, and Test are all elevated from baseline.

    I am not too sure. At least once a month. Sometimes I get curious and just get them done because I am experiencing some type of effect and I want to know where I am at.

    10 Days


    I thought I would just give a little update on how I am feeling on the torem after ten days.Just like the times I used torem before, I felt the effects on libido rapidly. I think it was day 3 where I starting noticing erections and sexual thoughts throughout the day. My libido was way up. At about the week mark I notice that my balls were huge but the libido effect started to diminish. It still boosts libido but not like those first few days. I wonder why that is exactly. I have noticed that my workouts have been more intense.

    No. Every once in a while I take a squirt of Arimidex if I feel like drying out or if I feel like I need it. Maybe like .5 mg to 1 mg a week.

    I'm about to start a torem centered PCT...I wonder if it would be beneficial to extend PCT from 4 weeks to 5-6 weeks? Any thoughts?

    In my humble opinion, I'd say there is no harm in that at all. There have been tons of instances where doctors actually prescribe SERMs in place of conventional TRT. Typically Clomid is used though, simply because it has been around longer. Google provided me with a loads of information and experiences where men prescribed Clomid for well over a year and even 6 or 7 years.

    I thought I would document an observation. For my Test being higher than it has ever been (documented at least), my libido is boosted but isn't necessarily through the roof. I feel fine but I don't necessarily feel as good as I thought I would with those elevated Test numbers. Maybe I was being slightly too optimistic because those first few days on Torem my libido was through the roof.

    I'll stay consistent and see where this all goes.

    Subbed, I've been interested in a clomid only cycle. Interested to see how torem treats you.

    Looks like you were shut down from the get go. LH and FSH are rather low. What you doing is like another PCT which can only help.

    i wouldn't say I was shut down at all. All my values were squarely in the middle of the ranges. If anything, considering the time of day the labs were taken, I'd say my values looked great other than my Estradiol was on the higher end of the spectrum.

    Observation.

    Pre torem my T/E reation was 1:20. After just a week of torem and very low dose arimidex my ratio is now 1:40. These numbers have been fudged to accomodate for the time of day the tests were taken and for easier rounding.

    I can say I feel great today. Perhaps the torem is evening out and the levels are getting more stable. Libido is definitely full force today. I hope that stays like that because I like it. My mood is elevated and I believe I feel just a tad more confident.

    I think I am noticing a bit of depression from this Torem. That kinda stinks considering that I want the Test to boost my mood. I have been emotional and just feeling really down for sure. Has anyone else noticed that on Torem?

    Okay. I think I am noticing a bit of depression and anxiety from this torem. I think I am going to reduce the dosage to 50 mgs EOD.

    You right I looked quickly at the normal ranges you gave and assumed those low values were yours. You werent shut down pretty much middle of the road. Nice improvment from before.

    Yes it's rather common to feel like that on clomid or torem class drugs. They also tend to get attached to other receptors(forgot which ones) which causes this problem. Solution if there is one is to lower the dosage way down. For example with clomid maybe someone would take 12.5 MWF. Very low dosage.
    This is the main reason why these drugs are not a solution for long term HRT even though they work as intended the sides just suck.

    That's what I am thinking. If I can lower the dosage as low as possible and still get results, that will be the optimal solution. No drugs for me. Not even alcohol.

    Messing with hormones always comes with risks. I hope you feel better man.

    Sounds like your keeping a safe distance from depressants. It certainly wouldn't help to seek relief with drugs known to cause the symptoms you're describing.

    Torem may not be the way to reach your goals. I wouldn't recommend continuing if you really feel like crap. Are you still able to kill it in the gym? That always makes me feel better regardless of what's getting me down. Endorphins are nature's prozac.

    I've been on (legit prescription) clomid, 150mg ED. Started at 50, but didn't have an effect. Upped it, then again, and after two-three weeks, it seems to finally be working.

    Don't have any sides of note yet, and i'll have bloods tomorrow.

    My time in the gym is okay. I think I might finish up this bottle of torem. I only have maybe two weeks left at EOD dosages. Then I will get bloodwork done just to see the results. Then I will switch to Clomid.

    You are correct sir. I think I will switch over once this bottle of torem is gone.

    That's bodybuilder PCT levels of Clomid. There is no way I would be able to take that dose voluntarily simply to boost testosterone. For PCT I could do it if I didn't have an option but that's it.

    Yep, I have read alot of experiences similar to yours.

    Yeah but if you google it you will find lots of experiences like that. It doesn't happen overnight like we want it to when doing PCT. It takes a little while longer to get to those levels but the old story of the tortoise and the hare comes to mind.

    I just don't feel like this 50 mgs EOD is cutting it. I am not noticing any real improvement as far as libido or anything. I order Clomid last night so as soon as that gets here I'll start that up. I will get bloodwork done on Tuesday before I start that.

    I hear you bro, def try clomid at 12.5, 3 times a week and take it from there. It might just work

    Update. I have observed that I have been receiving a lot of comments on how in shape and muscular I am looking. I have to say I do feel slimmer in the midsection and my muscles feel full. I have been putting up good weight in the gym too.


    Just got another comment lol. Apparently this shot is working. I do look lean and my weight is about the same.

    Bloodwork is back


    Taken at 4 pm
    test 578
    Estradial 18.6
    LH 6.1
    FSH 4.5
    AST 25
    ALT 36

    Alright, considering the time that my labs were taken, my testosterone is probably about 25% higher which puts it around 722. Not bad but not great either considering my baseline is somewhere around 650 or so. LH and FSH are both up slightly. I am not really sure how to interpret these results honestly. Any input to bounce ideas around is more than welcome.

    I'm at the end of my PCT and decided to cruise at 30mg for another week during a small cut.

    Thanks for the log

    I think it seems about accurate.

    A serm wouldn't increase your test levels that significantly (if that's what you were looking for). They send signals for your body to produce its own T. It can be very beneficial for someone with naturally low levels. Clomid took me from 190s to near 800s, but the doc was surprised see it that high. If you have natural T levels of mid 600s, I wouldn't think it would shoot you up to much higher than that.
    Just my .02.
