Most docs are hesitant to give anything out hormone related, unless of course there one of those new aged quacks.
Im curious to know if he went to a general practioner or an actual endocrinologist. The GP isnt gonna know jack shit from shat, and his advise is useless. If the actual endo was hesistant on giving him anything, then there may be cause for alarm.
1st he should rule out any medical problem/tumors/anything serious. If that checked out ok, then he should look at his diet/training.
Kid, whats your BF%?
I dont see any reason why an 18 shouldn't be allowed to take an cycle of a natural anti estrogen like vitex if he diet/training are in order and he has a little gyno going on.
