4-androstenediol Qestion?

I’ve been body building for three years now and have never used an andro supplement. I am considering using 4-diol and am aware of the possible side effects. The one I’m most interested in is hair growth…yes hair growth. I currently have next to no body hair(none on chest or abs) which is great because I don’t need to wax or shave. Is it likely using 500-750mg of 4-diol and day for a 6-8 week cycle I will experience a great deal of hair growth. I’d like to avoid it if I can. Let me know if I dreaming or if I’d be doomed to it if I choose to use it. Also, how long until I would start to notice any and could I stop taking it if I started to notice it? Let me know! Thanks for your answers.

500-750 mg/day? where the fuck did you find supps dosed like that? at that dosage for 6-8 weeks…hairgrowth should be the least of your worries.

i’ve used biotests 4-ad-ec for 4 weeks, double dosed the first 2 weeks and didn’t experience any added body hairgrowth, and i’m a very hairy boy.

I found doses like that with AST sports science 4-diol250 oral androstenediol. I’ve done a lot of reading on it and it’s supposed to be one of the most effective oral versions you can take. Anyway, the recomended dosage is 2-3 capsules a day and they are 250mg each.

well as long as it says diol and not dione you (probably) won’t grow boobs. since its oral the bioavailibility will suck, if i were you i’d either go with biotest’s 4adec or just buy a popper with the cyclodextrin complex and take it as you lift, these gave me a nice little kick.

250mg/cap sounds a bit high, i didn’t even think they still made/sold andro pills
