Link to the study: https://academic.oup.com/jcem/article/89/5/2498/2844817 This explains the gyno experienced by many on trenbolone. I do not get gyno from E2 no matter how high it gets, but low doses of Trenbolone/Nandrolone will do me in. Although the study doesn't show Nandrolone's binding capacity, Nandrolone is the parent hormone for many progestin's used in medicine, including those in hormonal birth control.
Looking for advice with a rather serious medical problem.. I caught HSV-2 (genital herpes) many years ago. It's a pretty common disease and many people barely get any symptoms, or might not even know they carry the virus. For others who get frequent outbreaks (like myself), it can be a very nasty disease. Normally the symptoms get less severe over time, but for me they have gotten worse and worse during the past years. Now it's got to the point where I have a non-stop outbreak; once the lesions heal new ones will form. It's not only about lesions as I also suffer from swollen lymph nodes, fever-like feeling and constant lethargy as a result. I'm already taking antiviral medication and any recommended supplements at 2 x recommended dosages without any help and I'm trying to identify the cause and find something that works. I did a test-E + Anavar cycle a few months ago and since then it got even worse than before. I'm on TRT since 8 years with Nebido + Arimidex 0.25mg/E3D since the past +6 months due to elevated E2 levels on TRT. I started doing some research into medical articles and found interesting stuff, particularly about the effects of E2 and Progesterone on herpes outbreaks. Some articles suggest that Estradiol can increase the severity of HSV outbreaks: However, other articles state that Estradiol can protect one from outbreaks and Progesterone on the other hand may increase them: Does anyone have experience or any knowledge related to this? I have never seen much discussion about the hormone progesterone in general. I just went to get tested for E2 levels and progesterone and will be getting the results tomorrow. I know that I definitely need to find some solution as I can't live being constantly sick.
