What Does Gyno Feel Like?


#1

hey guys,

great site! im new here and currently in week 4 of a test 400, 400mg per week 10wk cycle. its going well, im making good gains, increasing muscle size and also losing fat which is a bonus.

im 6 feet tall, 85 kilos and lean. 34y.0 male. training for 15 years.

I have Nolva for PCT.

ok so I have read a heap of gyno threads on here, there is a lot of info in there, however one thing I cant find is the difference between glands around or near your nipples and gyno lumps/tissue. Can anyone shed light on this, what exactly SHOULD you be able to feel there?

cheers guys.

oh yeah, have got next cycle planned, test 400 @ 600mg/wk + deca @300mg p/w. what do you guys think of that?

it will be sensitive to touch your nipple maybe a little swollen after some days of this you will get a lump around your nipple area. I would say if they are not sensitive or a burning sensation you are ok.


#3

Im curious on this as well.

I’ve never experienced gyno in the sense that you can visual see a swelling, but I have had swollen glands underneath the nipple to the point where if you squeeze it (with a bit of discomfort) you can push out a little bit of a clear fluid discharge.

Curious if there is in fact a difference.

Gyno will usually feel like little grains of rice. It may hurt, it may not. Usually accompanied with being puffy.

If you have any of those symptom, even one, its wise to run 40mg nolva ed until they subside.

Ironman, grains of rice in, or around the nipple, or both. All i have is the same thing on both sides which feels like glands that i could fel before i started this cycle. If i flex my chest hard and feel my nipples i cant feel anything there, i can only feel the glands when relaxed and searching.

On thing i have noticed is that my nipples are pointy a lot lately, but it is winter here and freezing, and now due to the size ive put on im often without a shirt lol in the house so that is probably why too!!!

Sex drive still through the roof so i dont think my estrogen is out of whack.

Main reason for the post was you hear a lot of people starting threads saying they feel something around their nipple when there actually are supposed to be things there like glands. Kind of makes me wish i had felt all around there prior to cycling, then i would know if anything was new or getting bigger. Will do this for sure for next cycle. That and taking measurements, got a nice new tape measure then forgot to take measurements before i started lol!

Attach two clothes pins to your nipples. If it hurts you have gyno.

I would imagine that might hurt anyways lol…

Along the same lines as dunking women suspected of witchcraft, if they drown they’re innocent.
