Thread: Complete Newbie...Have mercy!

    Complete Newbie...Have mercy!

    Hey guys

    I'm a new member after stumbling across DG's videos on Youtube.
    I'm loving the forum, lots of really good advice and a great bunch of helpful and friendly members.

    I'm 38 and I've just got back into weight training after a long 2 year hiatus.
    I know for a fact I have high estrogen levels.
    I suffer the typical symptoms:
    Find it very hard to build muscle regardless of how hard I train, Sexual dysfunction (low libido, no morning erections, decreased erectile function)
    Enlarged breasts
    Enlarged prostate
    Abdominal fat
    Feeling tired
    Loss of muscle mass
    Slight depression.

    I was reading about about Aromasin.
    My question is, can I take aromasin on its own -without taking any other stuff, in order to rid my high estrogen.

    Please forgive me of my ignorance but your advice would be greatly appreciated.

    Estrogen might be fine and your iron levels just low... privatemdlabs. com a full male hormonal panel to see what's what or simply a doc visit.

    Bloodwork first and foremost. Its impossible to know exactly what's causing these issues without it. Check privatemdlabs.

    There is no cookie cutter answer
    Agreed with above, ride the soul train to a blood test.

    Hey guys
    Thanks for the responses.
    BTW 44 I'm in the UK so I don't think I can make use of privatemdlabs.
    I'll have to find a private doc because my GP is a complete waste of time, a really ignorant fool.
    Do I just look for an estrogen level test.?

    You need a female hormonal panel these are good for both Women and Men this way you get your estrogen checked as well

    I'm gonna get my blood tests done. And take it from there.
    So hypothetically speaking, if my results are high estrogen levels, then can I use Aromasin to reduce my estrogen levels?

    As said, get that bloodwork done and proceed from there

    Estradiol, Sensitive

    Estriol, Serum

    Which is the most relevant for me?
