Hey everyone I've been reading through the forums for a while and now that I've ventured into the anabolic steroid realm myself and have some questions I figured I'd make it official and make a profile. This is my first cycle 10 weeks of test cyp. 500mg split into 2 pins a week usually Sundays and Wednesdays.
I'm in around week 7 right now I've made some pretty dramatic strength gains and also around 15-20lbs. weight gain (alot of water) I did not run any a.i. inhibitors or S.E.R.M.s while on cycle because i was told not everyone needs them and to see how my body responds to the test before I add anything else to the cycle but around week 5-6 and now in week 7 I've noticed some serious water retention (alot in my face as well) my blood pressure has gone from a normal range to 155/95 last reading (although this was over 4th of July vacation and I ate like a fucking pig the whole vacation so i'm sure that didn't help) and I've been having some puffiness and sensitivity in my nipples.
After all of these symptoms started I've started watching my salt intake cut my calories and included cardio, made sure i'm drinking enough water and purchased some nolvadex liquid and have been taking 20ml the past 2 days.
My question is should i be taking something for estrogen on cycle for future reference now that i know i am sensitive to sides? and if so an a.i.? or a S.E.R.M.? Also does anyone else experience the dramatic blood pressure increase? and if so what should i do about it? thanks in advance -Jon
