hey every one this is my first time ever posting on any forum and honestly after quite some time of searching i found this to be one of the most knowledgeable and tursted places around .
i have been searching about a problem i had for years now and although i quite understand alot about it i still think i need a vet opinion on the matter .
i am going to write about my first and only cycle and how it kind off threw me off balance so bear in mind at this time i was 20 , naiive and the only place i knew about steroids ( which all my friends who were competing at that time hopped on ) was from them or coaches who coach us to competetions
so the first cycle plan was
week 1-12 test e 500 mg
week 1-12 adex 0.25mg eod
week 12-14 NOTHING !!
weel 14-17 pct nolvadex 40/40/20/20
which sounded good because i didnt reseach enough and most cycles i read on the net was something like that
week 6 i got injured \bursitis in my left shoulder / i guess it was due to the tese e decreasing the collagen synthesis along with low e2.. and around week 6 i felt the test so good and i was resposing amazingly so i increased the dose to 750 for week 6 and i kept working aroung the injury till week 7 ( aslo 750mg test e ) thats when i decided to stop , i couldnt bear the pain of my shoulder any more .. and when i stopped i took no ADEX during my two weeks off before pct but i was feeling great and i was only focuing on my shoulder rehab ( i was that naiive a nd ignorant .. when i remeber this know i kind of feel like i was so hasty and careless in a thing that directly affected my health which is a real shame .
After about 2-3 months from the pct i got a pretty nasty Estrogen rebound , i literaly felt like s*** i didnt even want to get off the bed my nips were sore and so sensitive i knew that it was gyno as my nips were puffy (although i had puffy nips all my life) .. so iguess that meant iam gyno prone.
so istared takig letro for 3 weeks ( i dont remember the dose and felt also like **** but the pain and sensitivity in my right nip went away )
and i decided to go to an endocrine and he told me that i have nothing and its all phycological so i went to another 2 they all said the same but that was far from logical as i couldnt withstand the pain after stopping letro and i couldnt stop thinking about my gyno every second of the day so i coulldnt even function proberly
all they did ( all three ) was giving me and Anti-Inflamatory and anti-depressant thats when i know they have 0 knowledge on the subject and i was spending alot of money on docs and bloodworks /meds already
i did alot of blood works latey
total test 3.98 ng/ml (N.M:2.6 - 10.1 )
FSH 2.54 mIU/ml (N.M :16-11 )

at this time i had no libido no morning woods and i didnt feel great but i kept training as i was peping for another contest
and this blood work is today .. i fell good not great i get morining woods like 50 % of my days and some days i fell horny all the time (once every 7-8 days maybe ) others not so good but my physique is the best i ever been for years as i started cutting about 6 months and i kept making steady gainz so i though im fine .. and because i am at decent bf 10-12% i though of trying another cylce as a comp is up in january
free test 85.3 pm/ml N.M50-300
SHGB 45.2 nmoI/L N.M 14.5-48.5
LH 4.89 mIU/ml N.M 0.8 - 9.1
FSH 2.61 mIU/ml (N.M 1.6 -11
E2 34.9 pg/ml ( N.M up to 45
and to be honest after i saw this i said fu** it i dont know how to fix this .. and i went to every prof i know i even went to a surgeon which is known for his gyno surgeries and he swore to me that there is nothing or its so little in my left nip that he didnt nee a surgery and TBH it is not even visible exept by trained eye althogh .and i went to him 3 times XD that how desperate i am
what i want to know is
-to know how to fix my bloodwork numbers as it seems messed up ??
-why my hormones improved havent all this time while i was off , i didnt take any thing or drugs or even supps that mess with them??
- Can i fix this naturally using (Boron , Vitamin D ,ZINC )??
- will another cycle ( test 500 /eq 400 ) fix this as after shout down i will start over hoping to fix every thing with my pct ??
i really need a vet opinion as i dont know what to do anymore and i kind of dont trust people opinion anymore even docs when it comes to this matter i feel they have no experience as the problem is there right infront of them and they keep saying there is nothing to worry about
fell free to ask any questions i will be glad to answer
