Managing Gyno. Got Bloodwork


#1

So basically I have a gumball size lump under left nipple. Months ago it was very tender… and now it is painless. I tried to manage with femara (letro) at 2.5 mg ED for 2 months straight and nothing helped. I did not experience letro sides at all.

Any advice?
My estrogen was less than 1 on blood work so the femara must be working as it eliminates 98% of estrogen in body.

Very low E2 is harmful and has negative effects on: mood, libido, energy socialization.

Letro dose was insanely high.

What were you doing that led to the gyno?
What supplements have you been using?

Matt?
