Any increase in testosterone will lead to minor increases in estrogen due to hormone conversion, but they are insignificant and meaningless except in people who take excessive exogenous testosterone.

With previous p.E from tamoxifen, what's the safest anti estrogen to use after an anabolic steroid cycle? Will be using arimidex (anastrozole) throughout for gyno
