Hi guys, I’ve been reading you for a long time and decided to make a account. I’ve got a question, I was in bica 75 mg and estradiol 2mg daily for two months, but noticed my muscle mass started to fade and I freaked out, I dropped the estradiol and now I take 150 mg bica everyday, it’s been a week since then. I wonder, will I still be able to get result and halts hair loss? Also will I still be able to get good results in the gym taking bica? Another thing I take 0,5 dutasteride evey other day. Greetings from Dominican Republic. ❤️
How are you? Regime? Progress?

Strange but none of us really knows the answer but my feeling that the more hair loss, the more that you need estrogen and while 2mg is plenty to grow boobs, it might take 4 mg for some. Bridge was doing 6mg SL which is more like 16mg of swallowing pills.

This is why I am planning injections. I view low doses of E as support, not a regrowth

Although given the fact that even low doses of E can lead to changes over time, it is probably better to completely abandon HRT for 1-2 years. We'll see. Few have tried low doses of E with Bicalutamide: we have no idea if they are doing anything for the hair. I will have to experiment with this myself, at the risk of getting irreversible effects.

Ikarus used 0.5mg dutasteride, 50mg bica with 2mg estradiol and he had great results, he added 5mg oral minoxidil later on.

Yes, but it's special. Such a low dose of E gave him high levels of Estradiol (700 pg ml if I remember correctly), meaning he reached injectable levels at a low dose. And I'm talking about low levels of E, about the balance between T and E.

I think that your knowledge is building up little by little which is what you want. It took me six years or so to find a protocol that worked for hair and not just boobs, lol. You know, like Noah, you can still be male but have that sort of sleek dolphin body type of look. I wake up in the middle of the night here, after 2am and I start answering questions.

I am well aware of the effects of HRT. I am ready to put up with each of them. Yes, I wanted to have a muscular body and gain muscle mass. But it's not so important that I sacrifice my hair for this. The face and head come first, the body comes second. The only effects that worry me are irreversible enlargement of the pelvis and decreased growth. However, I hope that if you use HRT in cycles of 6-9 months, such changes will not have time to occur.
Also I am a little worried about the psychic effects, but I shouldn't get dumber lol. I have a humble introvert personality, I am silent and very reserved. Wondering what estrogen will do about it

I think I am proving that age is no complete hindrance but there might be something to the idea of inertia of baldness that you have to sort of turn the ocean liner around from. XY's might have decades of T exposure to overcome at say 50, while at 22, particularly with little to no hair loss, well it's not regrowth exactly but more like thicker strands and nicer strands with just the right amount of sebum which makes and enormous difference. Keto destroys my hair now so I am down to like twice a month. I have a milder aspirin dandruff shampoo.

Because of Derelict, I am giving castor oil another chance. I was having gastric issue but I had no idea really how little an amount 5ml of castor oil is. I also used it on my scalp for an hour or two and then drew a bath because it is hard to get out in just the shower since it is pretty sticky but I thought that my hair looked really nice afterwards and it had a nice smooth texture to it which I love.

One guy asked me to write an article about the psychological effects so I tried to do something creative and interview myself. The goal was to help "I am only in it for the hair" users of HRT know a bit more about what it is like to have a dual mind-set similar to dual personality syndrome. If it gets out of hand, then it is dual personality disorder and there can be high dissociative effects.

My concern is that estrogen slightly alters brain morphology. I hope this doesn't change my personality or my abilities.

be careful with injection doosages, I was on 8mg/5days ev, which isn't massive ended up exceeding pegnancy levels of estrogen.
I was thinking of starting at 10mg per week. Lena advises huge dosages, they are definitely overestimated. You should also measure the E level on the last day before the next injection. It should be in the range of 300-900 pg / ml

yeah, if I were you I'd definitely start on the lower dose and see where that gets you. try 2mg every 5 days-7 days and after a few weeks get your levels checked.

I finally got some results from my endocrinologist, and yey, everything is normal, I do not have problems with my kidneys or adrenal glands or anything else related to hormones. I just have shitty genes for baldness, oh and I have Vitamin D3 deficiency, as almost all europeans have lol. And yeah, oxidative stress.

Means, if I would take Bicalutamide, I could stop baldness totally, dead in it's tracks, but I am not sure if I REALLY want to take it smh.

Yeah but if you go outdoors and get sun for vitamin D, then your skin suffers and you are at risk for cancer and pre-mature aging. I would think that bald guys would get more vitamin D than those with hair which is a bit ironic.
