It may not be a very well known fact but it’s something that you really should be aware of when attempting to run RAD 140 and that’s the fact that it may cause gyno. You may have a ton of questions considering that so many people used to think Gynecomastia from RAD-140 can’t occur.
Well, it can. Despite what lots of people can tell you – RAD140 is a strong enough SARM that can cause gyno. So yes, gynecomastia from running Testolone can occur, unfortunately. But in this article, we’re going to talk about it.
I’m going to share why it occurs, how Testolone may cause gynecomastia, what are the odds of experiencing it, and of course – how to avoid it. One extremely important thing is to follow a proper RAD140 PCT after your cycle ends. It’s one of the things that greatly reduces the chances of gynecomastia appearance after the cycle! (Yeah, it’s possible to occur after the cycle too. You’ll understand why by reading further).
Of course, everyone wants to know how to stop gyno from happening, but what if you already have it? Again, read further and you’ll learn what to do if it occurs.
First things off…
Does RAD 140 Cause Gyno?
Yes, unfortunately, it does. You may experience gynecomastia (enlargement of breast tissues) from using Testolone. You may wonder why considering that we all know gynecomastia forms as a result of too high estrogen levels as SARMs like RAD140 do not aromatize into estrogen. Well, that’s all right, but it does occur because it causes moderate suppression in endogenous testosterone levels.
As a result, this leads to less testosterone floating in your bloodstream, but at the same time, your estrogen is remaining at the same level. This is sometimes leading to “estrogen dominance” – the phenomenon when the testosterone and estrogen ratio are not in good condition.
- When the testosterone to estrogen ratio is too low leading to estrogen dominance, it actually leads to various other symptoms and side effects and that includes gynecomastia as well.
The good news is that the chances of gyno occurring from RAD 140 (Testolone) are not really high. It still remains a possibility, especially if you’re prone to it, but chances are not as high because of what I earlier mentioned – it does not aromatize. Without actually increasing estrogen levels, the chances of gyno from RAD140 are fairly low. It only happens to around 10% of all users, according to unofficial anecdotal reports.
This means that while it can occur, gyno is fairly rare among people taking RAD 140 – only about 1 in 10 people or so may experience gyno at some point during their cycle. And even more rarely after a cycle, because of the same reason of testosterone vs estrogen disbalance.
I still strongly recommend learning about all the risks and dangers associated with the use of RAD140 because gyno itself is not dangerous, but it has a negative effect on your body image, of course. It may lead to low self esteem.
How To Avoid Gyno While On RAD 140 – Testolone?
Post Cycle Therapy
The biggest thing and most important precaution against RAD 140 gyno is to have a PCT after your cycle ends. Thinking that you can skip a PCT is likely to come with a myriad of side effects, not only gynecomastia itself. From feeling extremely bad to losing all the gains and adding fat, gyno is likely to occur too, without a PCT. That’s especially possible when you’re running powerful compounds, such as strong SARMs like RAD-140. They can cause hormonal disbalance leading to negative symptoms. You can learn about RAD 140 PCT in the link that I’ve attached at the beginning of this article.
Quality RAD140 – Testolone
The next important thing that you need to watch out for is buying a pure RAD140 (Testolone). Low quality SARMs are not only ineffective when it comes to achieving your physique and performance enhancement goals, but they are also more dangerous. They may come with unexpected side effects and more intense side effects too. Make sure you buy SARMs for sale from SARMS.to that have unprecedented quality and purity. Besides the fact that you save money, you also save your health with quality SARMs.
RAD140 Dosage and Cycle
Another extremely important thing is, of course, the RAD 140 dosage. It must be on point. Exactly as the cycle length. By administering too high a dosage and/or administering it for prolonged periods – you’re increasing the chances and the rate of hormonal disbalance which may lead to estrogen dominance. Do not disregard the safety protocols or you will regret it. Just stick to the recommended dosages. Moreover, start with a low dosage and then, with more experience, may attempt to increase it.
One last thing that I can mention here – aromatase inhibitors. Honestly, I’m not a huge fan of AIs. They are doing a great job in lowering estrogen levels which obviously dramatically reduces estrogen dominance, but they come with their own set of risks and side effects. While they can be effective, you need to find your own perfect effective dosage on an individual basis. I only recommend them if you’re prone to estrogen dominance and only in the lowest effective dosage. Plus, you’ll often need a blood test to determine where your estrogen level is. Lowering estrogens too much with AIs may lead to other side effects too! By using AIs recklessly, you may do more harm than help. Lastly, you don’t need them at all if you don’t have any gyno (or other estrogen dominance) symptoms.
- PS: Another option is Nolvadex (tamoxifen) which is not an AI. It’s a SERM. It’s actually totally different from SARMs and it helps protect and deal with gynecomastia. But it’s not very helpful against other estrogenic issues and so I wouldn’t recommend considering that you’re in the estrogen dominance condition and it doesn’t lower estrogen.
What To Do If Gyno Happens On RAD 140
In case you’re one of the unlucky guys that do experience gyno during or after a RAD-140 cycle – there’s no need to panic. While gynecomastia can be permanent (requiring surgery to deal with it), SARMs are extremely unlikely (almost impossible) to cause permanent gyno. Mainly, because they do not increase estrogen. Secondly, because SARMs’ cycles are generally short. And third, because SARMs are way safer than other gyno-causing agents such as anabolic steroids.
If it occurs after the cycle, the most important thing is, of course, to start a PCT plan. Immediately start the PCT which usually lasts about four weeks in total. You may start with Clomid or Nolvadex (rarely you need both after a SARMs cycle). Nonetheless, considering you developed gyno, Nolvadex may be a better option because it’s both great for PCT and for dealing with gynecomastia too. In a couple of days after starting PCT, you’re very likely to see improvements in dealing with gyno.
If gyno occurs while you’re on the cycle, you have two options: take the risk and continue the RAD140 cycle while adding either Aromatase Inhibitors (AIs) or Nolvadex (tamoxifen) that could deal with it, or stop the cycle and start PCT. Again, Nolvadex is not lowering estrogen levels so you may need AIs. But AIs have higher risks of side effects. So if you don’t really want to “play around” – you could stop the cycle and start PCT.
What to do now that you know you’re prone to RAD140 gyno? The next cycle (after PCT and dealing with gyno) run a lower dosage and/or shorter cycle. Or avoid RAD 140 at all in case it’s not for you. Or may attempt the Aromatase Inhibitors or Nolvadex route, but then again, I said it comes with its risks.
When you’re doing it alright, you should notice that in the first few days the gyno signs will disappear. In four weeks gyno should be completely gone. If it doesn’t – continue the PCT until it’s gone, but I highly doubt that four weeks wouldn’t be enough. For most people, 2-3 weeks are actually enough.
RAD 140 Gyno Conclusion
RAD140 (Testolone) is a very powerful SARM. While it has a lot of benefits when talking about strength increase, muscle gain, and fat burning, it comes with side effects. While some side effects are more common than others, gyno is among the side effects list. It’s not a common side effect indeed, but it can be really annoying.
I really hope that you find this article helpful and instructive. If you have any other questions, do not hesitate to ask them.
