I’ve read the gyno sticky, and the serm ai sticky, so bear with me.
I have had a blood pannel run and over looked both on here and by a endocrinologist, and neither find anything wrong with my hormone levels. Yet I have recurring bouts of gynecomastia. The first sign came while taking a high quality tribulus supplement. It was the least upsetting of the three bouts. At the time a small lump appeared under my left nipple. I immediately quit taking all hormonal supplements. I was taking both trib and an IGF-1 booster called hexaGHen. After stopping the gyno didn’t worsen, but did not dissipate.
The second bout came on after a cycle of cheaper trib product obtained from my local gnc. Once again I struggled with gyno, only this time it was fatty tissue deposit. Both soft, and glandular. The original lump did not increase in size. Again I stopped use, but the fatty tissue seemed to increase for three weeks until I was able to start taking calcium d-glucarate at 1g a day. At the time of the onset of the gyno, I was also experiencing low libido, mood swings, and lack of my normal morning ‘luster’.
The glucarate seemed to impede and further fat distribution. I continued this until out. At that time I started taking a ZMA supplement, that also contained methoxyisoflavones. Again the gyno came back.
Each time but the first my nipples became puffy, I noticed and increase in fatty tissue (even though cutting), and I would get pains on the side of my pectoral muscles. Mostly on the right side.
I am at a loss. I stopped the ZMA a week ago and the gyno seems to keep getting worse, although I have started getting my normal morning wood back.
I’ve finally gotten a hold of some a-dex after sorting out some money issues and will be starting it upon arrival. But I’m worried about bounce back when I run out.
I’ve been to the doctors several times. No tumors, no lumps, no issues with the liver, no irregular blood profiles. The conclusion has been unanimous. Idiopathic gyno. I’ll no longer try any free t boosting products, as this seems to worsen the problem. The thing that really get’s me is that I’ve used PH’s before and NEVER had problems with gyno. What gives?
