Tren is an extremely androgenic hormone, and as a result well known for promoting androgenic side effects. Hair loss and acne in men who are predisposed are both possible. Body hair growth is also possible. If you are not genetically predisposed no amount of Tren on earth with cause these issues. The androgenic side effects of Tren are truly based on genetic response. When it comes to hair loss, if you are predisposed to male pattern baldness, meaning at some point you’re going to lose your hair regardless of steroid use , Tren is one of the fastest ways to ensure you lose your hair a little sooner.
Virilization is a serious androgenic side effect of Tren. It is very difficult for a woman to use Tren without some level of virilization and makes it a steroid that’s almost never recommended for female use.
Important Note: The 5-alpha reductase enzyme does not metabolize the Trenbolone hormone. This means 5-alpha reductase inhibitors like Finasteride will not affect the androgenicity of the hormone.
I do not consider trenbolone to be capable of causing or aggravating gynecomastia. I do not know of a single case where the source of trenbolone was Parabolan (back when it was available), Finaplix H, or Component T-H. The problem appears to occur only when the source is an underground lab or the home preparation is made from powder from a black-market supplier. Since trenbolone’s wholesale price direct from a manufacturer is much higher than that of most anabolic steroids , it shouldn’t be surprising that substitution or partial substitutiion would often occur with underground products. Additionally, it might be that some have mistakenly made preparations from Finaplix S, which definitely would be capable of causing gyno, as that product includes estradiol benzoate as an ingredient.
Regardless of purpose, be it bulking or cutting most will find Trenbolone-Enanthate to be very effective in the 300mg-500mg per week range with 400mg per week generally being a very solid dose. Yes, you can use more but most will find doses that get much past 500mg per week to be a little less side-effect friendly, especially if they enter the 600mg per week range and almost assuredly if they surpass 700mg per week. Regardless of dosing most will find 8 weeks to be decently effective with 12 weeks of use generally being as far as you want to go. If your cycle is extended past 12 weeks it’s normally best to substitute another anabolic hormone in Tren’s place in-order to keep progress alive; yes, our body will adapt.
As for what you should stack Trenbolone-Enanthate with, simply pick whatever you want as this hormone stacks well with all anabolic steroids. However, it is highly recommended that testosterone be part of your stack as Trenbolone in any form will greatly suppress natural testosterone production. Many individuals also find supplementing with the T-3 hormone to be very useful as levels generally fall when Tren is present. Further, as responsible use is important a good Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) plan should occur after the cycle’s completion. In the case of Trenbolone-Enanthate, if your cycle ends with this steroid in play your PCT will not want to begin until at least 2 weeks have passed since your last injection.
