When looking at the bigger picture, it becomes obvious that the irregular dosing schedules employed by the majority are not ideal, regardless of which is used, as irregular dosing schedules leave the user susceptible to significant fluctuations in estrogen levels. When attempting to maintain one’s estrogen reading within that small, optimal range, more frequent dosing intervals are mandatory.
Without trying to overcomplicate things, there is one more factor to consider when attempting to maintain stable estrogen levels. AAS dosing frequency. To get right to the point, maintaining even blood AAS levels is crucial, as large swings in blood AAS levels leads to varying rates of aromatization, making any attempt to maintain stable estrogen levels through . management alone a vain proposition. Obviously, if you are using 1 gram of test prop weekly and inject all of it on Monday, aromatization rates will vary drastically throughout the week, due to the rapid release rate of the prop ster. So, regardless of the steroid you use, your dosing schedule should ensure that blood levels remain as even as possible.
