Gyno/ Femara Question


I have been using femara on cycle, and have noticed gyno is starting to appear, i have had gyno before from a previous cycle so i still have the glands. My nipples are puffy and sensitive. Now can this problem be alleviated by increasing my dose of femara? I was previously using 1.25mg every other day. Any info is appreciated.


Here is what Anthony Roberts has to say about that the use of letrozole with gyno
"...here's one of the most interesting things about Letrozole:

It may reduce/eliminate/reverse existing gynocomastia!

In a study conducted on mice (*no, I know it's not perfect), gyno-like-changes in the mammary gland were totally destroyed ! Here's a direct quote from that study:

"Our results also indicate aromatase overexpression-induced changes in mammary glands can be abrogated [destroyed] with very low concentrations of the aromatase inhibitor, letrozole."(7)

In addition, I've used Letro to get rid of my own gyno, as has a friend of mine, and we both used it at a dose of 2.5mgs/day, tapering down to .25mgs/day, and then finally off ... the gyno never returned in both our cases."

Hope this helps.


I had a slight case of gyno, and was able to get rid of it completely with Femera. That's some powerful stuff.


how long did you run it for?

do you think it would get rid of lumps under my nips iv had from teens??


Sure the femura is real? That dosage sounds like enough to avoid any such problems. What's the cycle you're running?


yeah I am interested as well. It just struck me a few days ago that I went to the doctor with sore, sensitive lumps under my nipples during puberty, and that it was gynecomastia.

I would definately rock some letro for a while if it would make my nips less puffy. do they take it orally or put it in a transdermal solution?


anybody have the link to that study? all i can find are things that say letro is promising but untested


Day 1: .50mg Letro
Day 2: 1.0mg Letro
Day 3: 1.5mg Letro
Day 4: 2.0mg Letro
Day 5: 2.5mg Letro **

** You will remain at this dose until gyno symptoms subside. Once you believe your gyno is gone it is important to stay at this dose for another 4-7 days to ensure all traces are gone. I recommend people with a bf% over 15 stay on for a week as it may be harder to judge completely whether the lump is completely gone. Once this period is over it will be important to taper letro down slowly rather than coming off it completely. Regardless of which manner you tapered up your dose you will all taper down in the same fashion.

Day 1: 2.0mg
Day 2: 1.5mg
Day 3: 1.0mg
Day 4: .50mg***
Day 5: .25mg
***You can remain at this dose or go down further to .25mg. It is really up to you at this point. They are both very common maintenance doses as an anti-e while on cycle. Personally I have stayed with .25mg and never had a problem.

Letro and the estrogen rebound:
With your estrogen being completely inhibited there is a definite estrogen rebound as your body tries to re-stabilize the testosterone:estrogen balance. We can prevent this rebound effect by supplementing further with another AI or SERM. So, I suggest that when you are coming to the end of your cycle you will more than likely be using Nolva in your PCT so just make sure that you begin taking nolva the last day you are going to take your letro and then continue on as you would with regular PCT.

This now leads us into the question of reversing gyno while not on cycle. There are a few things to remember here. You have already waited longer than you should have, and your sex drive will be shot. You can use tribulus or another natural test booster to help you in this scenario but I can?t guarantee the effectiveness. Just follow gyno reversal protocols 2 or 3. When coming off again you must taper and begin using nolvadex to prevent any rebound effect that may occur.

How much nolvadex should you use if you are not going into PCT and running this off cycle? I suggest starting at 20mg ED for a week and then lowering it to 10mg for another week and then coming off completely.

i think im just gona buy some and give it a go .

do u think there could be any bad sides????



this is interesting can it kill your sex drive permenantly though


I dont see it saying that effect is permanent.


dam that chick on the left is hot imagine if you couldn't get it up for her .

i would rather keep the lumps under my nips.


There is a topical anti-gyno formula out there that includes the following:

Transdermal letrozol/aromasin/DHT combo

It is applied locally. I have never used it thankfully, but I keep it on hand just in case. The theory is that applied to the nipple region you won't get as much of a systemic effect from the AI's. In addtion, it is reccomended that you run a DHT based compund like Masteron, Primo or Winny.
Do a google search and maybe you can find it if you're interested. Good luck.


were can i get my hadns on the stuff???




Please forgive my ignorance on this topic, but I was wondering if this could help me with my gyno or if my only options are a surgery or a miracle. I am currently 25 and have had gyno since my mid teens. Also is it possible to get a physician to prescribe these substances for cosmetic reasons? Thank you in advance for any help and for overlooking my ignorance.


Just Buy it yourself, its cheap.


Got any proof that ChemOne is a scam? Any proof at all?

Seems to me the scam is the outlandishly high prices AG is charging for half the volume you get from ChemOne for half the price.

But seriously - any proof at all about ChemOne being a scam? Or are you lying yet again?


Bump -

waiting on a reply from the Great Rugby Boy.


Re: Research Chems

I have purchased numerous research chems from CEM products and have been pleased with them.

A few months back I ordered T3, Cialis, and Letrozole and they accidentally sent me clenbuterol instead of cialis. I emailed them back and they had the cialis to my door in 48 hours.. now THAT is customer service!!!

I, too, want to know why chemone is so bad. I'll tell you one thing, CEM products may be a small company, but the little brunette I nailed last weekend will tell you how real that Cialis was.. "Are you on some kind of super-sex drug or something? Damn boyyyyyy.."
