Association of BPH with MPB and AAS Use


#1

Hey guys,
I'm getting ready to start my first cycle. 500mg of Test E for 10 weeks with a frontload, Dbol @30mg weeks 1-3, and 30mg weeks 9-12. Arimidex as needed. Pct will be "standard" with a few adjustments recommended by Bonez.

I'm very excited to begin, but I'm in no hurry. I would appreciate any thoughts/experience with benign prostatic hyperplasia and male pattern baldness, with the use of AAS. I'm not concerned with losing hair. I started balding at 17, and for the last few years, I've been shaving my head bald, and have made peace with it. My concern lies in the connection bewtween those that have the MPB gene, (which I certainly do) and the development of BPH.

At 25, I've yet to have a prostate exam, nor have I experienced any symptoms that warrant an exam. Do you guys think having some finasteride on hand would be a good idea? Any thoughts/experience with this?
