I think I may be struggling with gyno and was hoping for your advice. This is my first cycle and
I’m running 500 Test E/week. I kept some Nolva on hand in case gyno symptoms popped up. I was told by many that Armidex wasn’t needed for my dosage. Surprisingly, at the end of week one, my nipples already began to feel hard, sensitive and tingly, so I began taking 20mg/day of Nolva. At the end of week two, the symptoms hadn’t really gone away so I upped the dosage to 40mg/day, thinking that would take care of the problem. Soon, I felt like I was developing a small, hard bump under my left nipple, so I briefly upped the dosage to 60mg/day until I quickly got a hold of Armidex.
During week three, I started Armidex right away at 0.25mg/EOD and the symptoms seemed to subside briefly so I tapered down from 40mg/day of Nolva to 20mg/day. I was told that I shouldn’t be taking a SERM during my cycle unless I really need it, and 60mg/day is too much, so I was trying to get off it.
Now towards the end of week four and I am still feeling hardness in my nipples. I can feel them almost all day rubbing against my shirt and they are tender, bordering on painful. There also seem to be small bumps appearing in my areolas and especially around my left nipple. The area around my nipples also seem puffy to me. Maybe I am being too paranoid and this will go away, but I don’t want to chance it.
I have upped my Nolva again to 40mg/day, still taking 0.25mg/EOD of Armidex, but I am debating whether I should up my Armidex to 0.5mg/EOD as well or if it’s already time for me to do letrozole during my cycle as I am still just beginning in only week four. Doesn’t that seem a little early to you guys?
I am really surprised I seem to have reacted so quickly to the Test E in my system. I must have really bad luck with gyno or something if I am taking Nolva and Armidex and still feel symptoms. Do you think this is just a flare up that will go away if I wait it out? Am I being paranoid? What do you guys think? Is the tenderness/pain still normal if I’m taking Armidex/Nolva?
Thanks in advance.
