    Hey guys,

    I've been doing a lot of reading about Gynecomastia since I've suffered from it for a few years now, and seems like a feasible solution to try other than surgery is taking doses of Nolvadex.

    I was wondering if anyone with Gynecomastia has tried using Nolvadex. What doses did you take? Where did you get it? I don't want to see a doctor for a prescription, so I'd like to find a site where I can purchase it without one.

    What do you guys think?

    Thanks, I appreciate all input.

    Have you seen a doctor about your gyno or is this just another case of self-diagnosed manboobs from being overweight?

    Also nolva isn't really going to do anything to fix pre-existing gyno.

    I haven't talked to the doctor about it yet, but from examining myself, there is definitely hard tissue, moreso in my left breast than my right.

    Really? I heard that there are studies linked to reduction in gyno from taking Nolvadex.

    Nolva can reduce gyno, though it is not very effective in most cases. Especially in cases where there is glandular growth and ductal expansion. Aromatase inhibitors have been shown to be effective, particularly when combined with prolactin suppression.

    if you have specific questions regarding the use of these and other prescription treatments for gynecomastia/psuedogynecomastia/pectoral feminzation, please post them on www.afboard.com (out of respect for the OT policy on these compounds)

    I pretty much agree with all the replies in the thread. It wouldn't hurt but it definitely wont fix your problem if it's cause you're over weight and have unlucky fat buildup zones.

    Before I really got into lifting I had only heard of this once, and it was a 130 lb buddy of mine. :hs: I guess some folks are just unlucky like that.

    gynecomastia, including psuedogynecomastia and pectoral feminization are VERY common. the two primary factors are excess estrogen and prolactin, the two primary causes of those issues are obesity and puberty. However even with the primary causative agent is removed (end of puberty, loss of excess bodyfat), situation may not reverse (it will generally recede). The new issue being that the tissue itself still produces inordinate amounts of those hormones.
