    Test + no AI = more acne?

    Noticed this recently. Ran out of formeron ( only AI I've been using ) during my cruise of 300-400/ week of cyp, noticed since dropping it, my acne is out of control. Found a little I had lying around 2 days ago, an I'm noticing my skin is improving quickly.

    Anyone else have this problem?

    Could unregulated estrogen cause acne?

    Oh yea, estrogen is a problem. If i bump my test dose over 150mgs i get acne even with and ai. Ive been running a low dose of tren-a and havent got one zit from it because it doesnt convert to estro. And yes my tren is legit, its gmp fda approved trenabolic from wp. Cant sleep and sweat all day long. Not saying you wont get acne from tren but in my case i dont.

    Say word? I think I read a post by you about exactly this, which Is why I wanted to ask. I feel like I should know this, but was dumbfounded as to the cause of my breakout. Can't wait to get this shit under control

    Large changes in hormone balance in general can cause acne. I tend to get acne when I drop or increase my test dose.(blast and cruise) I will breakout for like two weeks or so until my levels stabilize. The increase in estrogen can absolutely cause your issue.

    Yeah, it happens to me too. Over 125mg test and I breakout even with letro. On dbol I have mine field on my back and shoulders.

    absolutely, high estro can also cause oily skin and acne. I always use an AI even when cruising at 250mg Test E a week, just .25mg adex 2-3x a week but it still seems to make a difference, and its very cheap.

    Hormonal imbalance can cause acne, for some it can be brutally visible. I strongly recommend using something to combat acne while jacking with your hormones, waiting until you have acne can cause hideous massive scarring. Personally, Acnedren works kick ass for me, I haven't had a pimple in a year or so, well ever since acnedren came available, I tried it and have been using it ever since. I was prone to BIG shoulder acne, usually 1 or 2 painful monsters at a time. 2caps 2x daily for heavy blasts, 1cap 1x daily for cruise is my personal protocol.

    Thanks for the Info gents. Acne has been a lifelong problem for me tbh, kinda died down at 23.. Now, as long as I pump an AI, scrub with 2 different soaps, I am good lol. Lookin in to something besides formeron possibly, some more cost effective alternative, from someone that sells hcg, I miss my nuts

    i started to break out while on PCT tosed in some adex clear in 1 day. most of mine are big deep ones on my neck that arnt really noticeable but you can feel them. That takes months to go away. When I get my estro in check its gone in a week.

    Most acne issues with tren happen after you drop it.

    Tren is the worst acne causing aas of them all. Sorry about the bad news. It is dose dependent though so that might be a good thing for you.
