Discussions that mention nolvadex

Regarding the safety of supplemental testosterone. If you are not deficient to begin with, the supplemental T will NEGATIVELY feedback to your pituitary gland.

This will inhibit your LH secretion, and therefore the testicles won't be told to make T. (the body already shows T in the system).

This is why it can be dangerous to inject T or forms of T. Your balls will shut down. Also, your sperm production will drop.

Although T is needed to produce sperm, the T must be LOCALLY produced by the testes for sperm production to occur.

NOTE: Bodybuilders will take Clomid during a cycle to keep some natural T production. Then hcg to really "jump start" the balls again after the cycle.

I wouldn't do T injections unless I was T deficient.
Too risky and too much to worry about.

Also, Arimidex and Nolvadex are estrogen blockers. This will keep T conversion to E from either happening at all (Arimidex) or from effecting the body (Nolvadex - Tamoxifen).

Regular Guy,
How old are you, and have you experienced any attrition of your testicles?

Tell me about your cycle.
Please be as detailed as possible. By the way, the Femara is new to me. I've heard of Arimidex and Tamoxifen (Nolvadex), but not Femara.

Also, how do you get hcg? I know it must be injected, but just curious.
