Testim and large breasts
Nov 22, 2003

I was just prescribed Testim and one of the side effects listed are enlarged breasts. The questions I have are :

1. What percentage have this? 2. How large? 3. Is this permanent or temperary?

Response from Mr. Vergel

Gynecomastia is rare at low doses of testosterone found in the gels. If it occurs, talk to your doctor about using Nolvadex or Arimidex to block the estrogen that is formed by aromatization of testosterone in the body that causes this problem in very few people. It can be reversed if treated early. Soem bodybuilders have to get the growth out surgically after they waited too long. More on this in the book "Built to Survive" that you can get at


do you know? cause i am so confused?
