Career lurker, first post.
Background: 30 y/o, 2 years into TRT, 3 weeks into second blast of 500 mg/week test cyp. Had gyno surgery in early 20s (leftover from puberty, prior to any anabolic use). 8 years of lifting/functional fitness training.
I know you guys love bloods so I’ll throw my numbers.
Normal Trt dose: 100 mg test cyp/week + hcg
Test: 720 pg/ml
E2: 38 pg/ml
Last Blast: 500 mg test cyp/week, 12.5 mg aromasin E3D + hcg
Test: 3700 pg/ml
E2: 65 pg/ml
Having already had gyno, I am terrified of it. I’ve tried arimidex and aromasin both on my first blast, and they both make me groggy as hell. I started the AIs due to puffy nipples, bloating, etc. This time around, I’d like to actually enjoy my blast without the AIs. I’ve got nolva and clomid (clomid via prescription; since the reclassification of hcg I was prescribed pregnyl, but it has been on back order, so I got the clomid). I’ve been taking it, but found a study from John Hopkins School of Medicine from 1980 citing gyno rebound from Clomid.
Looking for feedback from anyone using SERMS throughout an entire cycle or blast. Did it help with water retention? Anyone have gyno rebound with Clomid?
Getting bloods done again next week.
