Default arimidex during cycle?

One of my friends told me I should be running arimidex during my cycle to completely prevent gyno (he does this). Another friend told me he would only run it if I start to feel gyno developing, and only run it for a few weeks even then. The friend who runs arimidex during cycle has had gyno in the past, so this may influence his decision. the friend who does not use it during his cycles says he thinks using arimidex during the cycle can somewhat negate the potency of what I am on. Needless to say they have me somewhat confused, as this is only my second cycle ever.

My current cycle (3 weeks in at this point)
Week 1 thru 16 - sus 250 (500 mg per week)
Week 1 thru 4 - dbol (10 mg 3x daily)

pct will likely just be hcg (most common concensus among my friends with any aas experience)

Any input or advice would be greatly appreciated!

You probably don't need Adex at this point. If you use too much (like 1 mg per day), it will block too much estrogen and lower your total muscular gains. However, I doubt that 0.5 mg EOD will block anything worth noting. Still, I agree that you should probably skip it until you feel itchy or burning nipples, or if you put on too much water weight, or even if you feel your libido lag (despite being on all that testosterone). I always run it at 0.5 mg EOD just to keep me lean looking, but it's probably not necessary. So there's no clear "right" answer here.

HCG is good to get your testicles working on their own right after you finish your injection cycle, but it does nothing to get your entire endocrine system (HPTA) back online. For that you need time and most of us always run Clomid, Nolvadex, or both to get the hypothalamus (H) & the pituitary (P) brain parts of the HPTA working. Once you quit HCG, you will be just as badly off as before. You need to allow your natural endocrine system to get back into gear: First HCG for about 18 days, then Clomid and/or Nolva for about four weeks. THEN time.

So I think I have decided to run some during my cycle. I feel slight sensitivity in my nipples...not sure if it is paranoia or gyno, but either way I am going to order something for it. how does letro compare to anastrozole? I checked on prices earlier and the letro is substantially cheaper per mg

Letrozole stops a great deal more of the conversion to estrogen, but if you do not need it (if you are not dis-positioned to getting gyno), I would stick to anastrazole which allows some aromatization. Estrogen plays a big part in the immune system and also helps prevent joint pain. Don't cut it out if you don't need to, adex is sufficient if you have never had gyno before. Use letro if you begin to have heightened symptoms of gyno that the adex is not reversing.

Also, if you have never had gyno before, .25mg to .5mg ED should be sufficient (1/4 to 1/2 of a tablet) to prevent the symptoms, starting with the lower dose.

thanks so much, this is only my second cycle ever, so I don't know if I am necessarily prone to it or not.

What was your first cycle gear? If it was the same, I would say you are not prone to gyno. The amounts you are taking are moderate, so the risk is minimal. Just have it on hand in case.....
