Good info - thanks guys
So I am no hormone expert and I realize libido and the inner workings of the endocrine system are complex. But i am looking at everything through my own experiences and would appreciate feedback just to better understand all of this … and this relates to my TRT as I am not having the libido surge most discuss.
Anyway about 12 years ago i was sold an OTC “test booster” from a gym owner who aslo owned a supplent shop. I had never done anabolics and honestly, i never had a high sex drive and never had that “killer instinct” where i had to have the girl type feel at any point really when i was a young man.
I began taking the test booster and he told me to take this ancilalry set of meds with it. I trusted the guy and my goal was to get stronger and to “get an edge” in the gym and with my lifts. For most of my adult life i was 6’ and around 175.
The stuff he gave me was a PH hybrid with a stout dose of Superdrol as one of the main ingredients. In 2 months my strength was through the roof, i was a sex machine, and muscles felt like granite, not flesh.
About half way through the cycle (i didnt know i was on cycle) my nips itched and i could tell my libido was going crazy so i called him. he added A-HD (i think it was that) as an OTC estrogen supporesor.
When i would take this blue pill i would notice that my libido would skyrocket even higher for a few hours just after that. Like i was itching to get laid.
This was all new to me. I mean i had a sex drive prior to this but this was insanity. So to tie this into my inital question - i am assuming that the superdol an the other Dione PH ramped up my angrogen receptors (not my test), and casued me to get the lib surge, but since my nips would itch, that would be an indication of high estrogen… and when the A_HD would knock that down the lib would rise even higher …
So based on these facts, i am assuming the difference or “spread” between the two numbers here was causing my libido spike? Am i wrong?
