Hey community, it's been quite some time since I've been around.

I developed an autoimmune condition and alongside immunosuppresants I began cycling "anavar" or what I thought was var. 10mg qd just to prevent muscle waste.

Anyway, I just did bloodwork last week after about 3 weeks into the cycle and my hormones are out of wack.

Everything is regular except for total testosterone and estrogen.

Total T : 202
Total E : 881

I'm obviously stopping the cycle but I have no damn clue what to do other than hop into a traditional clom/nolva PCT.

Just wanted to see if you guys had any additional advice.

Wait ...
What is the reference range you're using on the Estrogen??

Do you have a blood test from before you began the "Var"?

Ref range for quest is between i believe 80-190 with me hitting the 881.

sadly i did not get a test done prior as this was a dire situation where I needed to suppress and recover asap.

D*mn!
That's high!

I assume you've already stopped?

What about other stuff you're on? Anything that could raise Estro?

Yeah blew my mind. I got it from a long time reliable source so didn't think much of it. I've since stopped, started my PCT to try and repair the damage.

Nothing additional in my regimen, just the pseudo var and a corticosteroid for inflammation.

Of course you know, Var wouldn't do that to E.

Are you going to take an AI? (I would, if I were you. ... And you can).
I tend to let my E float a little higher than some guys.

But I would NOT feel comfortable leaving it there.

Most definitely, I ignored the bloating since corticosteroids are supposed to make you soft and fat.

But yes I currently have my clomid/nolva that I'm taking, need to incorporate either exemestane or an OTC. I've been away from the game for a while so not sure what new OTC stuff is on the market.

If you have an autoimmune condition, you may actually consider leveling with your doc and seeing if he will give you a script for the exact purposes you are intending - 10mg to prevent muscle wasting.

It’s a stretch, but it’s not out of the realm of possibility either.
