Gentlemen what’s going on, long time lurker, finally made an account because I’m at a crossroad in my protocol and could not collect enough pertinent information reading around.
4 years on trt.
did 40mg m/w/f for 1.5 years alongside .25mg arimidex on same day of pin
following 1.5 year did 40mg m/w/f alongside 6.25 aromasin everyday
Now this year I have experimented due to the fact that A) aromasin is killing my hair
B) the reason I switched to aromasin was because arimidex was intolerable and I wanted to verify that to be true after my amazing experience with aromasin.
So at first I began pinning ~20mg everyday to upping administration frequency to create more stability with my estrogen and rbc and in hopes to allow me to drop the aromasin dosage to 6.25 3x a week rather than everyday, and it was highly successful, best i’ve ever been. However, hairs going still.
NOTE:( I am extremely estrogen sensitive and aromatize with little doses, high e symptoms come fast with big jim downstairs taking the first blow, then bloat, then bloodpressure, and then my pubertal gyno waking up from its slumbber)
Substituted the aromasin for arimidex to .25mg 3x a week
and my hair stopped going, even regrew.
But arimidex sucks, idk what it is but my body and arimidex are rivals. My stomach feels and looks pregnant, farts that could clear a colony of dung beetles, tired and lazy, breathing even feels heavy as if it requires conscious thought, bloat water retention. just sucks, all irrelevant of my e levels, I do thorough and consistent labs between change in protocols.
And this particular protocol brought my e to the same level as it was on aromasin (25-27)
but feel disgusting, but my hairs coming back.
To confirm once more my findings, went back to aromasin, back to feelings like a million bucks, stomach tight, vascularity back, jawline chiseled, but the hairs going.
So here’s my conundrum
aromasin= perfect world at cost of hair
arimidex= sickly and bloblike but keep hair
NO AI= tits and bloodpressure and moonface
My brainstorming thinks its a good idea to cut the trt dose in half so 10mg everyday and try no AI, see what happens. Keep the hair and due to lower dose and adminstration frequency possibly not need ai, or atleast be manageable, and rely on trtplus for the gains( sporatic low dose anavar/primo cycles for the summer or reverse diet)
Any insights, any clues, any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Does arimidex suck for anyone else?
