I originally posted this on another site but I would still like more feedback if you experts here are willing to help me:
I visited an endocrinologist not long ago. The doctor took several tests, of which, measured my Total Testosterone and Estrogen levels. When the results came back, the doctor announced that my Testosterone level was normal for a 21 year old male (which at 740, I guess is debatable) and that my Estrogen level was undetectable, which again, the doctor stated was normal.
Yet, I have gynecomastia. Despite my Estrogen level being undetectable: the doctor prescribed an anti-estrogen twice daily for three months. It was 10mg of Tamoxifien Citrate (Nolvadex) and it had little to no effect on my chest. Although, I must admit, while on it I felt more energetic and found it easier to get out of bed in the morning.
Now here are my questions:
Is it worth experimenting with another anti-estrogen such as Letrozole?
Would it be wise to go on an all out cycle (Testosterone), taking into consideration an AI and other precautions to keep my estrogen level in check? Would that create a hormonal atmosphere that would rid me of gynecomastia? I only mention it because I read a story that raised my curiosity where someone experiences success through this route, as he “replaced that flabby chest with one of iron”.
Not so much of a steroid question as it is a gynecomastia one: I have had tests to check for kidney and liver disease and both organs are doing fine and like I stated above: my hormone levels are pretty normal. Most of the literature I have read has stated that gyne is caused by a hormonal imbalance or some type of disease with the kidneys or liver and since I have neither what else could possibly cause it?
Edit: I have had gynecomastia since I was 12-13.
Thanks for reading gentlemen.
