Long story short, my first attempt at PCT after a 18 week test
cycle failed, and now I need to restart my test production.
I did a test cycle:
250 mg Test E every 5 days for 110 days.
7.25 mg aromasin everyday.
Did not have any problems with gyno, at the slightest tingle, I just took some aromasin and it was fine.
To get off the cycle, I was recommended some luliberin. To have the
greatest chance of this working, I first tapered off the TEST E, and two
weeks after the last Test E dose, I took:
100 mcg Luliberin (GnRH) for 10 days, for a total of 1 mg.
I also ran the aromasin during part of this PCT. I had no mood changes,
bad side effects from this protocol, and felt great a month or two
after. I thought I was in the clear. Cycle finished around Feb/March
The issue is, by September, I was feeling a bit lower energy. I did not
even have much desire for my girlfriend at the time, and just wrote it
off to a bad relationship.
I also remember in December 2015, I notice my left nipples was
sore/painful, so I realized it may be off the hormones stabilizing after
the cycle, and did not think it was much of a risk. Seeing as not much
test was being aromatized in my system.
This did not go away, in April 2016 I went to the doctor and took some tests.
TSH 1.06 mU/L
Total Test - 6.3 nmol/L (low)
FSH 0.6 UI/L (low)
LH 2.5 UI/L
Prolactine 11.2 ug/L
Estradiol 49 pmol/L
Obviously, low testosterone is no fun and I have the traditional
symptoms. Echograph also found 30x35x7mm glandular tissue left breast,
12x10x5 glandular tissue right breast (ie gyno). That really sucks.
I took a few mg of aromasin and mild dose of letro for 2 weeks, till the
nipples were no longer sore, while trying to decide what to do. The
endocrinologist I am seeing is understanding, but slow to make progress,
because there is 2 months time between each visit.
So, what thoughts do you guys have on what I could have done
differently. More importantly, what can be done now? I'm 29. I would
like to have an outcome that reduces the gyno, as well as goes and some
type of PCT treatment that will boost my natural test levels, so I don't
have to do a cycle.
I'm open to ideas, specifically, how to increase my post-cycle natural
test, how to reduce the gyno, even if this involves doing another test
cycle so I can run letrozole with it, etc.
