Also Yes Good point I was thinking about this today. Thank You.Split your weekly dosage into twice weekly pins. This will ensure that your T and hence E (and ratios) are a lot more stable.
The easiest way to recover E is to pause the AI’s. The deactivated Aromatase in your body will gradually metabolise, and be replaced by new aromatase. Conversion from T to E will hence steadily accelerate back to something resembling homeostasis.
Do you have dry joints? For me, this is the most reliable ‘tell’ for low E. Especially after some heavily sets of deadlifts.
I think you should heed the advice others have given. Take some time and pause the AI and slow down a bit. Definitely agree that your shots should be 2x/week for more stable levels.I have some Dbol on hand. what dosage / protocol do you recommend ?
Eod injection from now . Stop arimidex right away . Add if needed but .5 e3d first, then increase as neededThe HCG won't contribute much to getting your estrogen back. You've already stopped taking the Arimidex, so that, combined with continuing on with your Test doses, will normalize you but it may take some time. You might even have a little bounce back from dropping the Arimidex and you may need to ride it out.
That's WAY too much A-dex. Do more homework next time. A-dex literally blocks your aromatase enzyme from doing it's job - which is to convert Test into Estrogen. But when you stop the dose, you might have a rebound as this process catches up and have to ride out a time where your E is high.
But noone can really tell you how long this will take. It depends on how well/efficient your aromatase enzyme processes work. Everyone converts Test to E differently - which is why you have guys like me that almost never need an AI, and other guys that need some on small doses of Test.
EDIT: Also, your lipids are probably trashed right now from the Adex. You should probably get some bloodwork done if you can.
How long (Hours) before blood test? Im assuming a couple hours before?it is a rebound effect coupled with taking hcg and dbol that raise E2. This was the point of just allowing your body to adjust cause now you’re high and doing the yo yo effect
a day before your bloods take 12.5mg aromasin and see how it affects your E2
if you aromatase easily then maybe take it twice a week
Yes you are right Ive been taking huge doses of HCG in pursuit of getting my estrogen back. I usually take a 300 IU 3 times per week on my current Test cycle. Do you think I should take a break from HCG for a while to regulate my HTP/HPG axis? I think its a logistical idea. If so how long should my break be?You’ve over-managed it. Classic sledgehammer to crack a nut.
Your objective (whether you knew this or not) was to try to re-establish homeostic balance of estrogens during your [very mild cycle.
Instead you threw 5,000UI’s of HCG at it, which is an absolutely gargantuan dose. For comparison, I only run 500UI on 1g test. Throwing huge amounts of HCG at your HTP/HPG axis only dampens sensitivity.
Your optimal course of action was to simply wait for your E to rebound naturally.
You likely haven’t done any permanent damage, but you need to be more careful.
and......note Im not here for comments about your opinions on the effects of an only anavar cycle.
...again I am not looking for your opinions on the matter regarding if HCG is needed
I have HCG and I plan on running it through out the whole duration of my cycle (12 weeks).
