    Bloating on Cycle

    Alright, so Day 8 now on my first cycle.



    500mg Test E weekly
    500iu HCG weekly
    0.5mg Arimidex EOD

    I was taking 25mg daily of Dbol but with good advice, ceased at the end of day 6.

    I'm getting pretty bloated and my nipples look different, they have gotten a bit bigger. They always seem to be hard too lol. I've gained roughly 8lbs since I started, guessing it's water weight. Could I need to increase my AI?? I figured 0.5 would've been lots at my bf(11%).

    Any guesses on course of action fellas? Cheers mates!

    I have been reading that even if your nipples are getting a tad puffy, as long as they're not itchy or painful, it's not gyno, and water retention has to do with diet and water consumption?

    I presume it has to do with the carbs, so during a day, I eat 2 cups of oats, 2 bananas, 2.5 cups of rice, and some cashews for a total of 330 carbs.
    Water consumption is roughly 4L.

    It's definitely the dbol causing your nips and water weight your Test E has not even kicked in yet.

    not true! It's building up, yes, but he's got at least 250mgs(much more than we make lol) in his blood - so after his next pin he'll have 375mgs in his system(hence pinning e3.5d or e3d(he'd have more than what I said) due to the rotation...

    Yeah your dose is plenty - I think it may be bunk as well... This is why I was asking too... I saw Bio's statement and thought we were thinking along the same lines -- with ur stats i wouldn't think you'd need any more than .5eod - that's a good dose -

    What's your libido like? Are you breaking out(or starting too moreso)? High BP? Holding water obviously - signs of high E2 - but d-Bol is damn hard to dial in - is this your first time(cycling)?

    My arimidex and Clomid look pretty identical, but the arimidex is from Teragon Labs and the Clomid is from Northern Pharmaceuticals. Could my dex possibly be clomid?

    Libido is the same as it used to be. Orgasms are actually better now though. No problem holding an erection. No break out at all. I don't think BP is high, but I'm going to check that tomorrow. First time cycling yes.

    I'm thinking your dex is bunk... I'd try and get some more dex ASAP and compare plus pull your BW mid cycle or if you can now then after your new dex(would be ideal)

    I stopped the dbol at the end of day 6 because a few vets told me it would be best
    Would upping the dose of the dex I currently have be worth a shot?? and how long would it take for me to notice if it was working?
    If I used Nolvadex to take care of estrogen, what would the dosing look like?

    Good listening

    Nolva is a SERM - it'll block the estrogen from getting to your nips(breast tissue) but not keeping estrogen from elevating

    I wouldn't try upping this dex really - without BW you don't know what's going on... I'd try and source out some different adex ASAP - you'll know if it's working(it's very early on in your cycle) so estro probably isn't really high(yet) if bunk -

    That's about all you can do(you could take a low dose of 10-20mgs of nolva IF you have gyno) I run it on cycle alongside my AI if I have a flare up... But if/once you know how your body reacts to dex you can keep it at bay w/an AI

    FWIW I use Teragon for almost all my gear including arimadex. Never had an issue with it.

    My arimadex and clomid pills look nothing alike aside from colour.

    okay good!
    My Clomid looks exactly the same as the Dex then. The only difference is that the Clomid is from Northern Pharma.

    Is your arimidex pharma grade or is it a UGL?

    I believe Teragon is a UGL. I'm fairly confident in their products though. They're based out of Russia and I hear anything coming out of Russia is good I have a few friends who use them and have never had any issues, and Alta has used them as well and has been fine. I could just be going crazy. lol

    Alright, so High E2 is definitely not the issue, the dex is working lol. I think I may be heading to Low E2 though. My head feels a little hazy. Kind of like the feeling of being on T3's. And a headache has started at the back of my head and is just consistent. Left shoulder cracked/popped for the first time ever this morning. Weight has gone down by 3lbs in the last 2 days from loss of water. Do you guys think its high E2?? if so, should I skip a Dex dose and then lower it by 50%?
