Information about the drug
Femara is the commercial name of an active chemical component called Letrozole. This product is not an anabolic steroid. The principle of its action is based on the prevention of conversion of testosterone to estrogen. This process in the body occurs constantly, but in the usual situation without exogenous testosterone, this process proceeds imperceptibly. However, when a large amount of exogenous (obtained from outside) testosterone appears, part of the free hormone binds to an enzyme called Aromotase.
There is a so-called process of aromatization. As a result, a large number of female sex hormones appear in the body and the body begins to be rearranged according to the female type. Accelerated fat deposition occurs in the waist and hip, there is also a disorder called Gynecomastia. This is a very undesirable effect for any user of anabolic steroids. The essence of this disorder is that a man begins to grow breast.
It should be noted that these symptoms practically do not lend themselves to therapeutic treatment, in course goes operative intervention. To avoid such a terrible symptom, most athletes take care of the proper reduction in the amount of estrogens in the body. This process can occur in two ways: Admission of antiestrogenic drugs; Reception of aromatase inhibitors.
Both methods are effective, but they have a different principle of action.. Antiestrogens allow you to fight with the already appeared female hormone. But inhibitors of the enzyme aromatase, can prevent the process of aromatization, thus not allowing estrogen to appear at all.
Both methods are quite effective, but anti-estrogens help in situations with a small number of female hormones. Aromotase inhibitors such as Femara are preferably used in heavier courses of anabolic steroids.
It is necessary to understand that the presence of female hormones in the male body is a physical necessity, as well as the presence of testosterone in women body. It is not necessary to abuse aromatase inhibitors as this can lead to unwanted processes. Which include a strong fall of sexual desire.
The product is used both during the use of steroids and during post-course therapy. During the use of steroids, the dosage varies depending on the severity of the course and the conversion of testosterone to estrogens. For more detailed selection of dosage, you should take tests. Many athletes also use a dosage of 0.5 mg every other day, throughout the entire course of steroids.
After the course therapy dosages bigger during the first ten days of admission, should be used at 2.5 mg (one tablet) per day. According to the 10 day period, the dosage is reduced to 0.5 mg per day and take another 2-3 weeks.
