I am a 22 year old male currently taking finasteride to combat MPB. It has been 10 days since the first dose and everything seems to be going well, the side effects are minimal. In fact my libido has increased quite a bit and I “feel” better which could be due to the initial testosterone increase due to the production of DHT being inhibited.
My understanding of this is that I am taking a DHT inhibitor which is causing a larger amount of hormones to be converted into testosterone but I will also get a higher estrogen conversion. How do I make sure that my estrogen levels remain in the low-normal range?
Do I take a estrogen inhibitor to stop the potential increase in estrogen?
