    Hi, I've heard that if a woman's bodyfat falls below a certain percentage her ovaries cease to produce estrogen, as in the case of anorexics. However I've not been able to find the exact figures, does anyone know?

    Also, I read "endurance exercise" lowers estrogen levels, but it doesn't define "endurance exercise". Does anyone know how long one would need to do cardio for to effectively lower estrogen levels?

    My one complaint about the Search button is that it only gives resolves up to Thread level. So if I was searching on something that ultimately I'd find in my Q&A thread, it would show up on the Search and then I'd have to spend the next 3 hrs digging thru 42 pages of stuff. Thread Post + Page Number of Thread would rock socks.

    so I have a question...hope this is not posted in the wrong forum but here goes.
    I just turned 24, had my tubes tied when I was 20, just recently found out that by having my tubes tied I have created a progesterone deficiency in my body. I found out as I was trying to prep for my first competition back in January and started experiencing major scalp hair loss, weight gain despite the meticulous dieting, and hypothyroid symptoms. Mind you I have never used AAS. I am now using natural progesterone cream throughout my cycle to fix the progesterone problem. I have naturally low estrogen because the tubes being tied created both low estrogen and progesterone..and my testosterone is within normal range for my age. Have had everything checked several times over the past year.

    Not trying to write a book, but can you answer how taking a progesterone supplement would interfere with using AAS. I would like to run a low dose anavar(like 2.5 or 5ed) when i use t3 in the future to prevent too much muscle catabolism. I have ran t3 in the past and successfully lost some weight but I also softened up and want to prevent that the next time around. I have used clen and am considering that, but from what Ive read I dont think that clen is enough to prevent losing too much muscle while using t3, some have told me clen is not anabolic and others have said it is. I dont mind using the clen but I didnt like my workouts when I was on clen, I was too jittery or lightheaded feeling to get a good workout in, and the max Ive taken is 80mcg, so I wasnt dosing too high.

One thing about having a multi-mega page thread is that no one will bother reading it because it's too many pages, whereas its easier to search and just simply scan the titles of individual threads.

    Might be very useful to also have a sticky of "The Basics" so people don't ask the same question (e.g. how much anavar should my girlfriend use?) over & over & over.

I suggest we rename the Q & A thread to read: Drug talk with Sassy.
    Just a thought. n time if we do not remain organized, this will end up a clusterfuck from hell and no one is going to want to bother with it.

    I agree with you. But it was nice of the mods to offer to give us this subforum than nothing at all. I will tell you this though, the chem E section gets more traffic than all sections of the women's forum combined. So I do believe it will get notced far more here than it ever would in the girly section.

    I think those doses are good. I think you'd be surprised how many women use tren ace. The sides aren't really dramatic though I'd like to hear input from SS, heavyiron or Mike about the system impact of it - liver, cholesterol, etc.

    Prop has the potential to be slightly water retaining because it does convert, but it is very short acting so nothign really dramatic. If you were running this for competition I'd be sure to drop the prop far enough out to reduce its impact on water manipulation. The absolute latest I'd run an injectible to show date is 10-14 days out. Based on what impact prop has you might drop it earlier than that. Do you plan to dial in w/ any proviron or nolva? Maybe even an AI (aromasin?) w/ the prop?

    Tren is a good cutter.
