    its all relative. Though agree that the "normal" female hormonal cycle is not particularly kind, less so when its abnormal.

    I wonder what effect AIFM would have on me.

    Macro. What is the difference between the active ingredients in AIFM and formestane?

    formestane is similar to ATD, Though with lower affinity and different metabolites. However that being said while formestane is available, there are no comparable products that use formestane (they do sell an injectable version).

    because of hydroxylation it did not fare as well as ATD, which is why it was not chosen for AIFM.

    Thank you. I'm not sure if it is comparable, but I had purchased e-form last year (it also comes in a spray). That is why I asked.

    I've no idea what hydroxylation is ... lol ... but I'll just assume that makes it better :naughty:

    maybe raise your sex drive but I'd be hesitant to tell a female to use AIFM

    hydroxylation does not make something better or worse (though it can with respect to delivery and activity- as well as half life, solubility, etc depending on the chemical and the position where the OH group is added).

    in the case of formestane, it makes it less effective mg/mg with respect to aromatase inhibition.

    E-form contains octyl salicylate a possibly estrogenic (some conflicting data and only tested on ERalpha) and anti-androgenic (confirmed) dermal plasticizer. Plus other than that, the TD base is really rather poorly formulated IMHO. estimated delivery 10-15% is only slightly better than androgel, which is an ancient plaform.

    it was discontinued almost a year ago. They were dumping it, likely because of the widespread poor response.
