Hey Guys it’s me BK_!
I accepted life as a eunuch, stopped bothering with PFS cures and this forum, and moved on to other pursuits.
I’ve been away for years recovering but haven’t reached 100% (recently been held back by too much humping girlfriend, not enough sleep (again g/f), and lots of junk food). Now after all that I’m back to the forums because I want to be cured.
I just want to share that going through 4 cycles over the course of a year (up to 3 months long) MuscleTech Hardcore Creatine (it also has l-carnitine and taurine in it) helped me recover, even long after I tapered off the creatine.
I DID NOT take the Creatine to treat PFS. All I was taking it for was to get more endurance when power-lifting so I could make more strength gains. I walked into GNC and asked what’s a good Creatine and they gave me this. I took it very cautiously (because I was worried about if my kidneys could handle it). I first took 2.5 grams worth of creatine (half a scoop) once. Then I tried a couple times a week. Then I did daily, and then moved up to 5 grams until I hit saturation in 30 days. Then I would maintain the 5 grams for at least a month until my strength gains normalized and then would taper off by going back to 2.5 grams per day and then to 0. But I noticed that the creatine would make me hornier, and even coming off the creatine I was still horny.
I know that Creatine causes DHT levels to rise. I actually stopped taking Creatine because it was making my hair fall out, my scalp was itchy, my unibrow exploded, dark thick hair was growing out of my ears, my nose hairs exploded and now I have to pluck and shave them twice a week, my beard got thicker, I got hair growing on my shoulders and back (where there was none before I started cycling!), my testicles became like a grapefruit and people were staring at the bulge in my pants.
Seriously I think you’re on to something. Increasing DHT worked for some guys and for others it didn’t. I believe that some of the guys like johny5ar and noniman have an autoimmune problem which is why they respond poorly to it.
Makes sense since other guys fixed their problem by fixing their gut first (which fixes the autoimmune disease) whereas others have fixed it through androgen tonic herbs (like Tribulus and Tongkat) and then taking DHT boosters.
