Ya I got all my levels tested, I took the prohormone back in September and got my bloodwork tested in May. The estrogen was actually kind of low which I found weird bc I developed gyno. And I know clomid is an estrogen suppressor but would taking it help my Test levels reach its normal levels? I have lost almost all libido, my testes dont feel as big and my ejaculate volume is a lot lower than it used to be. I just want to come out of this shutdown ASAP. I have done a ton of research but I just wanted to see what some people with some first hand knowledge think.[/quote]
Not weird that E would be low by the time you got your bloods done, you developed gyno on cycle correct? This is bc your body was aromatizing the extra testosterone into estrogen, far more than your body is used to under natural circumstances - this can cause gyno, although prolactin can also be a major culprit. At the same time, the shit you were taking also shut down your natural testosterone production - it was just the unnatural T that you were putting in your body that was turning into E. When you went off this shit, your natural production did not resume at the level it is supposed to be running at - therefore you may have experienced gyno then, but your labs are now showing low E. This is because E comes from T which your body is not making enough of.
This is the kind of stuff very few people are going to spell out for you and you need to learn from the stickies.
I’m sure you feel you’ve done a lot of research but now it’s time to step it up man. Luckily you’ve found this site, use it to find the answers to your questions - use the search bar to find other people’s threads with similar conversations and similar issues to yours. Most importantly read the stickied threads at the top of the steroids and T-replacement forums, these will give you most of the knowledge base you need to ask the right questions. You need to show people here you have an understanding of how things work, no one here has the time or quite frankly even the interest to explain the absolute basics - this is what the stickies are for.
Example: You say you know about Clomid but you need to understand specifically how it works, at least the basics. YOU NEED TO UNDERSTAND THE HPTA AND WHAT PCT DRUGS DO. Read the SERM & AIs sticky in the steroids forum, and get cracking on the other stickies.
