    Default Nolvadex or Arimidex for women Pre Contest ??

    Hey all....Just putting this out there to get some feedback and more knowledge about whether a woman should use Nolvadex or Arimidex for pre-contest to combat the stubborn womans estrogen that my wife is haveing a problem with the past few years getting ready for our shows. Some advice has been given to use Arimidex cream.."Good Luck Finding it" and other have said just Nolvadex ?? So there it is ..Maybe some Vetran Women BB can shed some light on this or some husbands of some women BB can also jump in on this. Any input is appreciated.

    Arim for sure. Never heard of Arimidex cream though, so ya Id say good luck finding that, lol.

    But women have good success using Arimidex. I know some that actually use both Arim and Nolva, not sure why.

    thanx for the reply JonnyO, I just recieved an email and basically said for a woman running Test arim is good ..for a woman Not running test Nolva is best. here is my email comment......

    Arimidex stops the conversion of testosterone to estrogen while Nolvadex actually blocks estrogen from binding. Since women don't have too much circulating test, not much will get converted to estrogen anyway


    Would you think that is a fair statement ???

    Nolvadex is by far superior for women. Women are different then men in that they have very little conversion of testosterone estrogen. Arimidex does not block the estrogen receptor it simply prevents the aromatization from occuring in the first place (aromatase inhibitor). Thus little aromatization equals little help from an aromatase inhibitor. Tamoxifen on the other hand is a SERM...much different. Because women already have much higher levels of naturally occuring estrogen we need to be able to control these levels. Using Tamoxifen will in essence render the present estrogen somewhat inert because the estrogen receptors will be blocked via the competing tamoxifen.
    Women get great results from Nolvadex the last 8 weeks out from a contest. 10mg taken twice daily 8-10 hours apart. Ive seen some dramatic changes once a female client has started Tamoxifen...womens ability to drop stubborn estrogen related fat improves greatly.
