Beyond the bodybuilding world Winstrol has firmly placed itself on the pedestal of most well-known anabolics on the planet thanks to its use in professional sports by individuals in just about every professional sport imaginable. Winstrol as we discussed can greatly increase strength and this includes an increase in ones strength of speed. Further, due to its inability to promote massive gains in muscle tissue, it is a drug that can be used in low doses without generating a lot of suspicion. More importantly, Winstrol is only detectable for a very short period of time and is very, very easy to cover up if a drug test is made known to the athlete; these things make Winstrol a top choice for many professional athletes and for obvious reasons.
A 31-year-old man presenting with an 18-month history of sexual dysfunction resulting from severe adult-onset IHH (LH U/L, FSH U/L, T nmol/L). Initial therapy with 50 mg of clomiphene citrate (CC) three times a day for 7 days, with overnight LH pulse profiling and 9 am T levels evaluated at baseline and on completion. A 2-month washout period, followed by low-dose maintenance therapy (25-50 mg/d) for 4 months.
MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S):Baseline and stimulated T levels and LH pulsatility; effect on sexual function.
RESULT(S):Clomiphene therapy resulted in complete normalization of pulsatile gonadotropin secretion, serum T level, and sexual function. CONCLUSION(S):Isolated hypogonadotropic hypogonadism may result from an acquired defect of enhanced hypothalamic sensitivity to E-mediated negative feedback. Whereas direct T replacement therapy can further suppress endogenous gonadotropin secretion, treating IHH men with gonadotropins can stimulate endogenous T secretion and enhance fertility potential. On theoretical grounds, reversal of gonadotropin deficiency with CC might be expected to have a similar biological effect.
Women naturally have some testosterone in their system, although it is not nearly as much as in men. If a woman is suffering from hot flashes and roller-coaster mood swings when either pre- or post-menopausal, then a blood test will be necessary to check the levels of each of her hormones in the body. While we usually think of estrogen as being the primary active hormone in women’s bodies, it is the actions of testosterone (and to a lesser extent, progesterone) which will help to calm these uncomfortable symptoms associated with menopause. Doctors who prescribe testosterone replacement therapy will review the lab work to see if the reason is that these hormone levels are much lower than normal. Doctors will then usually prescribe a 1% testosterone cream for the woman to use on her thighs and abdomen once a day. The results can be quite dramatic. Within a week or two, she will see a marked reduction in the uncomfortable symptoms of hot flashes, night sweats, and roller coaster mood swings. She will also experience the return of a healthy energy level, and even the return of her sex drive and libido. It will be necessary to continue to monitor the blood levels and symptoms for the doctor to determine if the testosterone dosage is right or if progesterone needs to be added also.
