Dianabol is a relatively strong estrogenic anabolic steroid due to the moderate level of aromatase activity it carries. While its aromatase activity is only moderate, this conversion actually leads Methandrostenolone to be converted to methylestradiol rather than estradiol, which is far more powerful than estradiol. This can make side effects like gynecomastia and water retention very possible with this steroid; in fact, they can appear seemingly overnight. Heavy water retention can also promote high blood pressure, which Dianabol is notorious for causing. Such effects can be controlled, and when it comes to high blood pressure this is something you’ll need to put some effort into ensuring does not become a problem.
In order to combat the estrogenic side effects of Dianabol, anti- estrogens are commonly recommended when supplementing with this steroid. You have two choices in anti-estrogens, Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulators (SERM’s) like Nolvadex ( Tamoxifen Citrate ) and Aromatase Inhibitors (AI’s) like Femara ( Letrozole ). SERM’s can be enough for some men and should be your first choice if they can get the job done. However, AI’s will be far more effective as they will directly inhibit aromatization and reduce serum estrogen levels. Unfortunately, AI’s can negatively affect cholesterol, as can Dianabol, and when conjoined this can prove potentially problematic. If an AI is used cholesterol management will be a priority, and it will be possible. However, SERM’s, while not always as effective will actually promote healthier cholesterol levels due to their estrogenic like activity in the liver.
Hey I’m 18 and have been lifting since I was in 7th grade and am now a senior. I’m interested In the dball cycle over the dianabol but have a few questions. The first question is do I need to take a test booster with it? Although it is recommended Ik if you mess with your body’s natural production at a young age it can screw up your production of it. My next question is about after you finish it. I’m seeing stuff about if the effects last and what I’m asking is if the dball effects of muscle growth wear off or do you lose the muscle you gained. What iv got from reading is if you just take the pills daily without test booster which is my option I’m really wanting to take, after my cycle runs out I won’t just lose muscle or stop growth will I? Thanks for you’re time and get back to me asap as I’m looking to order it soon
