DHT = No Libido?

The weirdest thing ever, the king of males hormones is blunting my libido. Aromasin and other anti estrogens increase my libido but dht (real pharmaceutical grade) and dht derivatives blunt my libido.

I’ve tried real pharmaceutical grade dht marketed for erectile dysfunction and all it did was make me calm and focused, more energetic, crash my estrogen and the likes. I’ve also tried proviron and it too killed/blunted my libido.

Right now I’m on 25mg/day of proviron and 500mg/week sustanon and have much less sexual desire than I did before

“Proviron” caught my attention. I have experimented with Proviron and never received the benefits that others on the board were able to obtain.

Next month, I plan to increase the dosage substantially to see if that makes a change. 25mg did NOTHING for me.

There is more discussion about Proviron doses on the net than reviews of how well it works!

standard male Proviron doses will fall in the 50-75mg per day range. [and also] … 50mg is a great place to start, but most men will find Proviron doses of 100mg to 150mg per day to be far more efficient and effective. [and also] The half life of proviron is around 12 hours. A good recommended dosage is 25-75mg per day; (it is not permitted here to link to some boards … so I can’t include source).

Government dosage suggestions here.

My plan is to begin 3 tabs per day divided throughout the day. As I said before, one tablet made NO difference. You may not see a lot of comments here, but there are quite a few readers who are interested in the successes and failures of Proviron, so I hope you will keep posting your results.

Everyone responds differently to hormones, some people respond well with regards to libido when on mesterolone, drostanolone or DHT, some feel shit, run down and might even retain water (strange but there’s cases of it happening). 500mgs/wk + mesterolone is a cycle, you’d be better off moving this to the pharma section, people (including myself) will be more likely to see this post and help you out on pharma. TRT is for testosterone replacement therapy, nothing more, anything relating to PED’s such as HGH in higher than therapeutic doses, peptides/ SARM’s for gaining muscle mass, anabolic steroids, beta 2 agonists, fat burners for aesthetic gain (you get my drift) should be posted in pharma.

DHT, drostanolone and mesterolone appear to antagonise the estrogen receptor and potentially block the effects of estrogen in estrogen sensitive tissues similarly to SERMS
