It shall be noticed, that in men, approximately 5% of testosterone undergoes 5α-reduction to form the more potent androgen, dihydrotestosterone (DHT), also known as androstanolone. From another side approximately % of testosterone is converted into estradiol (the primary female sex hormone) by aromatase an enzyme expressed in the brain, liver, and adipose tissues. Hence, don`t forget to take precautions to avoid respective side effects. Thereof we recommend to perform blood works and take aromatase inhibitors on cycle (if required, anastrozole preferably) and SERMs (clomifene, toremifene) during post cycle therapy (PCT).
Can someone help me out? How long can someone estrogen remain “out of balance”? Did a test cycle one year ago, 500mg test e a year a go, started ai in week 4, dropped Ai for pct. nolva/clomid pct 40/100 for two weeks and 20/50 for two weeks. I was told to pin my hcg on two shots during pct. what would this do to my estrogen levels? My symptoms are Mostly Mild but include soft erections,cystic acne, anxiety, creaky joints, slight libido change and at times I’m emotional. I thought that my it could be high estero so I took .25 mg of arimidex eod for two weeks, felt a tad bit of relief but I’m convinced it was placebo because they feeling of normalness went away after a few days. Went to the doctor and everything is with in normal range. They won’t test my estro though. The reason why I’m asking is because I want to do another cycle and just restart again. I have not felt normal in a while, but just very subtly. HELP
