I have a co-worker that is pretty big, about as big as me. He’s 5’11" 225 at 12% BF and I’m 6’2" 230 8% BF. He has taken steroids and I haven’t, so I ask him a lot of questions concerning steroids.
It’s a well-known fact that if you inject Test that not only your testosterone levels, but your estrogen levels as well will shoot up. He jokingly said to me that if you injected estrogen into your body that, in reaction, your testosterone levels would rise as well.
Keep in mind that this was all in good fun to joke around with this with my friend, for we do not know what would happen if we really did such a thing, but I wanted to put this through the T-Nation members to see what they think.
What would actually happen, as a man and not a woman, to your body if you injected Estrogen? Would you just see the typical estrogenic side effects from taking gear or would testosterone levels increasing be a possibility? Possibly even something else. Any discussion is welcome.
