If higher than normal progesterone causes gyno, why am I being told by doctors not to worry about progesterone levels?

you said you aren't taking finasteride anymore so why would it be raised?

I’m not taking it anymore, I took a blood test after I stopped and it was showing up as raised. I still get a sensitive tingling on my breast and have ED nearly 2 months after stopping the tablet.

if I take zinc, breast hurts, if I take magnesium breast hurts, if I take ashwaghanda breast hurts like wtf..??

If it's only been 2 months, it may not have fully cleared your system yet, that could be why your progesterone is still elevated. It can take 3 months minimum for 5AR to be restored.

Would 4 weeks really make that much of a difference? Because from what I’m feeling I feel like sh*t.

Beyond 3 months is when you should be concerned about longterm side effects.

Anyway, you've been given options to try out if you're not willing to wait it out.

I’m currently at:

11 weeks post last tablet of finasteride

&

7 weeks post last topical application of finasteride

When does my timeline begin?

So we have to do basic math for you as well.

Okay, in 5 weeks if you still feel bad, go see a doctor.

Get off everything while eating very clean so your body can find equilibrium
Fasting would also help most likely, lots of pfs people do it

if that doesn’t work, it’s time to see a Doctor and possibly get on aromatade inhibitors

i wouldn’t be expecting to heal from this anytime soon while having burgers for lunch and a list of supplements on the daily. You are getting in your bodies way to deal with it doing that imo

Well it was it’s an opinion as I’ve read that depending on the type of topical finasteride used only some is absorbed into the bloodstream. So no you do not have to do maths for me, I was just looking forward basic advice

Nothing explains why my gyno flares up after taking those supplements though. Bloody strange

Estrogenic activity in males happens as a buffer for loss of homeostasis, so in essence all supplements are estrogenic in the long run (even though some might lower it in the short run)

first area of attack for you should be fasting/eating clean (lots of raw veggies and fruit, no catabolic fats)

second stage would be aspirin and vit e to get your Estrogen down. Unlikely to be necessary though

AIs/prescription drugs and visiting doctors should be last resort

If you have gyno you need to get on a sarm, eating f*****g vegetables isn’t going to do anything jesus christ.

I had persistent sexual sides past 5 months after stopping finasteride. I’m fine now. Don’t panic, my man!

The doctors here in the UK will only consider prescribing it if my estrogen is out of range, the bloods show its not so they won’t do anything?

Thank you, did your ED go away gradually or just bam one day you woke up and it was fixed?
