    Need help. I lost my sex drive

    I've apparently lost my sex drive and I don't know what to do. I started my first cycle of test e 500mg / week. No complaints with results in the first few weeks, I started HCG about 5 week and shortly after I felt sensitivity in my nipples. I did not have an ai on hand and luckily a friend who is on same cycle had aromasin on hand. I took half eod and started to loose my libido. I slowly worked off by .25 eod to .25 every 2 days to now I'm ending my 8th week with no aromasin and still no libido. I don't have any nipple problems or any lumps under them either. I did my fair share of research with low E2 levels and the effects it can have. Did I drop it to low or not low enough? I have adex but didn't take any. Hcg is 250 twice a week. Test e is 250 twice a week. I'm half tempted in started pct sooner than later with concern I ruined my cycle. My size is still here and strength as Well. Any suggestions??????

    blood work is the only real way to tell....

    Aromasin usually comes in a 25mg tab.
    Arimidex usually is dosed in 0.25mg EOD.
    Which AI were you using???

    Hey I'm still new to posting and hopefull more veteran members will chime in but in case your post gets lost in the ether I'll chime in now

    Based on your description you probably crashed your estrogen, but you seem to have addressed the issue and got back on track, with proper correction, I would have suggested a SERM first to manage the nipple issue, but I think you just went to aggressive with the AI at first signs of Gyno symptoms. The 0.25 dose should have been started at beginning of cycle, but I'm not here to harp about "woulda shoulda coulda's"

    My advice moving forward would be to finish the cycle since you probably only have 2-6 weeks (ideally 4) left and hopefully you have your pct already purchased and ready to go.

    Since you likely crashed your e2, you need to have that recover, but you'll have to do that wether you stop your cycle now or later, but you can still finish the cycle and benefit from it and learn from the experience to be a bit smarter and better prepared next time

    If your off the AI and the symptoms are gone you may be able to stay on cycle and use the possibility that if the symptoms come back again as a sign your estrogen levels are back (and too high) and either go back on the appropriate AI dose.

    Another option is to assume the estrogen will rebound and just start a serm as a preemptive measure for the rebounding estrogen, this might optimize the remainder of your cycle, but the risk here is the assumption that things turns out like I've suggested and e2 returns without knowing for sure

    The first option of waiting for symptoms to return as indication of e2 returning could give a better piece of mind finishing the cycl but reduce the overall success of cycle (not to a drastic extent, but some)

    Now for the "if it was me" and "I'm new to aas" (1-3 cycles in) I'd go with option two, stay on cycle and wait for symptoms of Gyno to start coming back and then manage and continue into pct as if nothing went wrong, this would give me a better piece of mind that corrections can be made to cycles and pr vent me from making a foolish mistake in future cycles with, potentially, more serious sides and after effects.

    You could also have bloods done to possibly figure things out faster (ideally this should have happened before, right now, and after, your cycle, but the decision to stop or not isn't what I'd be thinking, I'd be more concerned about what is currently going while on your cycle, because immediately stopping could add to the variables of what is going on

    Hopefully this can offer some assistance or direction

    Also, before you took your AI, did your libido change while just on cycle with higher test levels, because if it started along side the AI that lends more to the theory of crashed estrogen

    Cheers

    Edit: please post what you figure out and what ultimately happens in the end for others who may find themselves in a similar situation

    I have always figured ED and loss of libido is not possible in the proper enviornment.
    Though I have experienced both I have wondered if it was possible with the right strange present...
