Post saw palmetto

has anyone had sucess with this. i have read that masturbation cause testosterone to turn into dht. so i stopped masturbating and my face is so clear now. i also noticed that i wasn't loosing anymore hair. but my theory is that my body is still turning a little bit of testosterone into dht because i noticed some hair on my pillow case this morning and i still have like 1 pimple a week.

also i want to start weight lifting again and i'm afraid this will make my body produce more testosterone.

so i read that saw palmetto blocks the formation of dht. has anybody used this before? did it work well? are there any side-effects?

what i'm really concerned about is the fact that i am only 16. will this do hinder my development AT ALL?

i mean one or two pimples isn't that big of a deal but i'd like to have none if i can.

Is Saw Palmetto safe to use while pregnant? I assume not but thought I'd ask anyway.

NO, definately do not use it while pregnant. you might end up with a hermaphodite or soemthing.

Uh, you probably won't end up with a hermaphrodite, but it is definitely NOT safe to take while pregnant. You can't even take SP while on birth control pills because it alters the hormones too much!

Hey I've been taking saw palmetto for the past 3 weeks now. My acne has gotten alot better but Im also taking B5 and a Vitamin A tablet. I think it maybe the vitamin A that is helping me.

Personally I think it doesnt work but Im too afraid to go off it now incase it drives my hormones wild and casues another break out!
