Is it safe to take arimidex (anastrozole) to boost testosterone levels?

Won't "boost": Arimidex (anastrozole) is an aromatase inhibitor, it blocks the production of estrogen. So, it won't boost testosterone (t), but can prevent existing t from being converted to estrogen. ...Read more

Hello doctor, I took steroids. After that I did hcg and took nolvadex and clomid (clomiphene) to boost my natural testosterone. It has been 1 month now but my libido is still not the same as it was before cycle can I use arimidex to boost my testosterone

Steroids, libido: Hello~ novaldex, arimidex, clomid (clomiphene) act in SAME way post cycle. Estrogen analogues block esterogen and stimulate the pituitary to make LH to stim testes to prod endogenous T.So no use using all 3 together the effect won't be 3xgreater. I don't think they do much but if you decide to use one use clomid (clomiphene) its safer and for about 2 -3 weeks only. HCG useless. Best is cold turkey, and recovery to base ~6-8wk ...Read more

I'm just 21 and feel low t what can I do to boost my testosterone level? Should I take any supplement?

Not likely-evaluate!: It is extremely rare for a 21 yo to have low testosterone. Symptoms of low t are nonspecific. Other imbalances with similar symptoms are much more likely such as low thyroid or adrenal function, depression or heavy metal toxicity. See a doctor for evaluation. You can ask a doctor to test free and total testosterone levels, though your doctor will likely suggest other tests as well. ...Read more

Is there a safe natural way to boost my testosterone levels? Like with vitamins or supplements

Is there a safe natural way to boost my testosterone levels? Like with vitamins or supplements

No magic pill: Find some sports that you really enjoy, if you have a romantic partner work hard on the relationship and all of its aspects, and eat sensibly, getting used to limiting what you eat to what you really need and getting plenty of protein and less grease and sugar. This will probably raise your testosterone and very likely get you the things you want from having the higher testosterone. Cheers. ...Read more

I am 22 years old and just recently came off of a testosterone propionate cycle. I used hCG and arimidex (anastrozole) as a pct but now I can't get an errection?

I am 22 years old and just recently came off of a testosterone propionate cycle. I used hCG and arimidex (anastrozole) as a pct but now I can't get an errection?

Go see your doctor: You probably have too much Estradiol still & not enough testosterone. My concern is that you're cycling your hormones and not being monitored which is a very risky thing to do. Folks who really need extra t don't cycle their regimen. They just stick w/it. As dr. Geffner noted, you're risking your future fertility & testicular function. ...Read more

A doctor has prescribed 0.5 mg Arimidex 2x/week for low testosterone. E2 is 24 pg/ml and Total T is 199ng/dl. Could it work? On Clomid (clomiphene) E2 was 66 pg/ml

A doctor has prescribed 0.5 mg Arimidex 2x/week for low testosterone. E2 is 24 pg/ml and Total T is 199ng/dl. Could it work? On Clomid (clomiphene) E2 was 66 pg/ml

Maybe (not): Clomid (clomiphene) is used off-label to stimulate Testosterone production in hypogonadal men who want to maintain fertility (or by infertile men who hope to gain fertility). However, T is also converted into DHT & E2. Stopping conversion sometimes increases T. But it also sometimes diverts conversion to other. That's why Finateride & Dutasteride to inhibit DHT can increase E2 w/side effects. ...Read more

Is there a vitamin I can take to increase my testosterone level?

Is there a vitamin I can take to increase my testosterone level?

Short Answer = No: If you are really vitamin deficient {ie: sick},
then one may experience a downregulation of multiple hormones.

Except for vitamin d, there is a low chance that americans {the total population, not you the individual} are vitamin deficient. If this were to be true, then the first order of buisness would be to correct the vitamin deficiency state.

If you were low-t, then that would be addressed. ...Read more

How long would it take testosterone levels to return to normal after they were dropped from tagamet (cimetidine)?

Reversible: The reduction in testosterone that can occur with Cimetidine is caused by a reversible antagonism of testosterone synthesis - which means that if you are affected by this, then as soon as the drug is out of your body, your testosterone levels should return to previous levels. A level checked 2 weeks after stopping Cimetidine should be at your baseline. ...Read more

Depends: It depends on how long you were on it, what dose, and your age. The higher the dose, the longer you were on it, and the older you are, it takes longer for your own system to start functioning normally. For someone in your age group, I would expect it would take 3-6 months. ...Read more

Is safe to masturbate after workout? I just do a research on the web, some of them say it may effect your testosterone level...?

See answer: Though other things may rise or fall, ejaculation, either via sexual activity or masturbation, will not affect one's testosterone level (s). A single bout of short and intensive aerobic and anaerobic exercise usually increases serum testosterone level. Prolonged moderate to intense exercise (> 2 hours) leads to an initial increase followed by a decline to or below the baseline levels. ...Read more

If my husband takes testosterone shots on thursday at. 06 or 120mg, when should he take a blood test to check his testosterone level?

Peak & trough levels: We need both peak (highest) & trough (lowest) levels to determine optimal dose & frequency. We typically recommend checking peak level a day or two after an injection while we check trough level a day before injection (or perhaps that morning prior to getting shot). Peak level is affected by dose while trough level is affected by frequency of injection. There are other labs that should be monitore ...Read more
