500mg Test C per week worked great no sides at all, 8 weeks cycle, did not use an AI. Switched to 500mgof Test Prop per week & added 25mg of Anadrol per day for the last 2 weeks, got a few single stand alone pimples but no real acne, nipples got hard & pointy like a teenage girl but no gyno, no itchiness or soreness, zero lumps or bumps. Finally experimented with one 12.5mg Aromasin & one 0.5mg Arimidix in the last two weeks with good results. Went back to a cruise of my regular 250mg/week TRT dose & lost my libido for a few days.

Was Anadrol the high estrogen culprit here?
Any tips for coming off cycle a little smoother?
I always thought that if you don’t have any side effects then don’t take ancillaries.
Was I pushing my luck & playing to close to the edge with the AI dose.?

Thanks for any input. Cheers

You may have been on the edge.
500mg Test p is more actual testosterone than 500mg test c
I'm pretty sure anadrol can cause acne on its own.
Also, maybe things just compounded over time and after 8 weeks you finally reached a spot where you needed ai. Bodies don't always have the linear reactions that the calculators predict.
But if it was me, I would blame the anadrol.

Without bloodwork everything we say or think is just stabbing in the dark.

I use Marek Diagnostics for bloodwork, they are relatively affordable. If you see your estrogen is a little high, start a regimine of a-dex etc. Once you come off, you can retest and see where you are at and decide from there what to do.

Yes, anadrol can have estrogenic side effects by directly binding to the Estrogen Receptor (we think). So it could have been driving issues on its own.

Either way thankfully the body will reach homeostasis if you let it. I'd just continue with your TRT dose and things will go back to a baseline soon.

I also really enjoy a small dose of proviron, 25mg, for libido enhancement. That doesn't seem to skew bloodwork or have long lasting impacts. Might be something to try.
