Due to the cancer, both my Naturopath and my Oncologist say I can’t do estrogen therapy, but only testosterone. I have been researching the topic from different weight gain is unacceptable to me. My sister had a hysterectomy last year and gained alot of weight in her abdomen, hips, and butt. She was always tiny. My next step is to get bloodwork done to check my thyroid, hormone levels, etc. I will continue to battle this bulge, as I am determined NOT to get fat, but to get my lean abs and small waistline back. Research shows that determination is the one crucial factor in achieving success in life. So just call me “Determined”. ☺
Don’t give up on yourselves.
For the first month, I took 2 pills as directed (Andro400 Max)- ZERO benefits. Being 58 years old, I increased dosage to 4 pills in the morning as directed – ZERO benefits. I only need to lose 35lbs. to be at my perfect weight. During this time, I worked out 3 times a week for hrs per workout. I have actually gained a few lbs. probably due to muscle gain. Bottomline, Zero increase in energy, sex drive, testosterone, etc… Additionally, I am not a drinker, nor smoker. I rarely eat fast foods and do not over indulge in snacks or garage foods. I rated this product a 1 star because there is NO zero star rating. I am now looking for a refund as advertised, seeing that I am under the 90 day limit and product is finished!
As alluded to above, one very important thing to acknowledge when using AAS (whether taking one hormone, stacking or cycling) is the risk of harmful side effects. Within a steroid cycle, the users will often stack other non-anabolic hormones into their program to maximize specific cycle objectives for example: the addition of drugs like Clenbuterol and/or Cytomel /T3 augment cutting/definition cycles; others called aromatase inhibitors (estrogen reducing drugs) like Letrozole . Letro and Anastrozole Arimidex are often included to inhibit the conversion of excess testosterone to negatively cycle impacting estrogen and; incorporating post-cycle therapy (PCT) drugs such as the synthetic estrogens Tamoxifen . Nolvadex , or Clomiphene Citrate . Clomid (which act as anti-estrogens in the male body), can be used alone, together, or in conjunction with those like Mesterolone . Proviron and Human Chorionic Gonadotropin ( HCG ) during PCT to bridge the gap between the end of a steroid cycle (synthetic testosterone usage) and the restoration of the bodys natural testosterone production. These drugs too must be researched, and controlled in similar fashion to AAS. Thus, steroid cycles can be as simple or complex as the users individualized goals, cycle histories and levels of understanding. Below are three samples of AAS stacked cycles of varying complexity along with a beginning PCT sample, and an explanation of goal intention & rationale for the selected compounds, dosages & durations. These illustrations and commentaries will provide a better understanding of what stacking and cycling are along with the many nuances they require.
