    E & PCT


    OK, there was some debate that never got cleared up. Where does estrogen come from post cycle? Specifics.

    .
    There is an enzyme in the male body known as aromoatase which is capable of altering testosterone so that it forms estradiol - an estrogen derivative. Estrogen is structurally similar to testosterone and it is present in the male body, but to a much smaller extent than testosterone. Since aromatase can aromatize many forms of steroids
    , increased levels of estrogen can be a concern for the on-cycle bodybuilder. Also, Estrogen acts as the primary messenger of testosterone production. As noted above, Testosterone is aromatized into estrogen which signals the Hypothalamus to stop producing the proper testosterone release hormones. As you know, estrogen must be kept low

    So are you saying this estrogen post cycle comes from the androgen on cycle, even if they cant aromatize to estrogen?

    The estrogen post cycle comes from endogenous test that your body is slowly making more and more of if there where no estrogenic compounds used.

    Do you know the reason so much test (what little there is) converts to estrogen? Is there an abundance of aramotase enzymes post cycle?

    Im not sure but it does seem to make sense that if aromatase levels stay relativley normal then proportionally alot more T will be converted to E as their would be alot less T to convert and a lot more aromatse to convert it.

    Estrogen levels are low post cycle. There is no concern during this time. I don't understand what you guys are talking about...when T levels are low, E levels are low. We use SERMS in order to raise T levels post cycle. The serms put excess E into your body and in return this raises T levels.

    What? Estrogen tells the hypothalamus not to kick out GnRH to the pituitary, and the pituitary then doesnt kick out LH for the testes. So E would have to be high post cycle.

    Nope, you're confused. Again, when T levels are LOW, E levels are LOW.
