    Anadrol aromatizing?

    If Anadrol does not convert to estrogen, unlike dbol , then how does it produce so much water retention?

    I think it is another pathway estrogen is increased... not aromatization. I am not even sure if it has been truely determined by clinical studies.

    Ah, ok. So estrogen is increased thru its use but not thru aromatase enzymatic conversion.

    quote from anthony roberts:

    it is structurally impossible for Anadrol to aromatize. It's derived from DHT, and DHT can not convert to estrogen. The 2-hydroxymethelyne group (if I remember correctly) must be able to directly make the molecule stimulate the estrogen receptor, perhaps, or maybe it's metabolized into a substrate that has that property.

    It's not estrogenic or progestinic. IMO it's directly estrogenic somehow.

    Anadrol 50 increases the number of red blood cells, allowing the muscle to absorb more oxygen,hence, the muscle cell`s need to draws a lot of H2o (water).

    That the gyno, subcutaneous water etc. are estrogenic sides. If that were the case EPO and proviron would cause water retention.

    Anadrol is a DHT derivative, which means it will not convert to estrogen. However, I've read it can interfere with estrogen metabolism. Use an AI and keep your estridol levels under control. My personal favorite is adex.
