Interesting. May also consider going the SERM route.
What's your take on people suggesting that running a SERM and no AI essentially makes the body produce more and more estrogen because it's being signaled to and it just doesn't bind to the tissue?
From what I previously thought you'd still have a steroid aromatizing (spelling) into estrogen so you would still have a lot in your system flooding into it with nowhere to go.
Hope I'm not coming off as challenging with these questions.. I think the over generalizations of what works for the goose works for the gander doesn't always seem to be true.
Nolva actually dramatically reduced gyno i got while running a trenadrol/superdrol combination literally 2 years later. AI didn't touch it.
Sorry if I'm derailing the thread lol.
Great questions and honestly I have never seen clinical proof to prove either way tbh...
I honestly have had extensive labs years and years ago when running various compounds, I was doing 1-2x per month and experimenting on myself and so I was very clearly able to see what my body was doing, regardless of various theories floating around.
When on something like Letro for example, my estrogen was just plain gone completely..and although I had no ability to have most Estro issues, I also lost strength and didn't feel right, it was way too harsh for me. Not a fan.
I knew that I wanted to mimic my bodies natural numbers so I wanted to keep estro low, but not gone.. I do like Arim as well..its side effect free for me, but it does not have the impact that Nolva does on pregyno.
So although I can probably sail on Arim E3d low dose and have a nice low estrogen, it doesn't combat the pregyno..and I am prone on one side..the left side only..for whatever reason is my prolactin and estrogen get even mildly high, the left side flares up.
So I can use even 10mgs of Nolva ED and combat bloat, pregyno, my levels remain existent but low. I also have a higher Free Testosterone level since I am running an anti estrogen.
So I am not positive that everyone will respond 100% in this fashion, but I would suggest that others may benefit from this type of run.Literally I can do 10mgs of nolva, .5mgs of cabser E3d and run any combination of compounds, high dose, low dose you name it and I can control my estrogen and prolactin with ease.
I like this because I don't wanna run so much and stress the liver more then already.
