1st Cycle with Test, Have ED


Im 25 years old and started my first cycle on Test taking 400MG/ML weekly for 3 months. After 1 month I started experiencing ED. The urge was there but couldn’t keep it up. Luckily I was single at the time! I had some anastrozole on hand but didn’t take it since I wasn’t experiencing any aromatizing. From what I hear this is very uncommon when taking Test only.

I’m hoping to get some advice on what I should have done to prevent this if possible at all.

Thanks for all your help.

When you say you weren’t experiencing any aromatizing, what do you mean?

Did you get a blood test and your estrogen levels were normal? Because that is basically impossible.

At 400mg/week of test, you are going to be high in estrogen. You should be using some sort of AI, but not in high amounts.

There is a 99% chance that the problem is related to high estrogen.

Dude test aromatizes into estrogen. Run the AI to reduce your e2 levels.

Take the AI


These get better and better… Yes take the fucking arimidex, no shit. The main question here is, how are you gonna shoot yourself with some shit and not even know how it may be converted to something very different? blows my mind for real
