  AAS Info

AAS = Anabolic-androgen steroids

Simply as "steroids" or "'roids", are drugs which mimic the effects of the male sex hormones testosterone and dihydro-testosterone. They increase protein synthesis within cells, which results in the buildup of cellular tissue anabolism in muscles.

HPTA = Hypothalamic-Pituitary-Testicular Axis

relationship between these glands and the production of testosterone

PCT = Post Cycle Therapy

Process performed after a cycle after a to recover the functions of HPTA.

SERM = Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator

Nolvadex, Clomid, and Raloxifene are example of SERMs

ER = estrogen receptor

The main function of the estrogen receptor is as a DNA-binding transcription factor, that regulates gene expression. However, the estrogen receptor has additional functions independent of DNA binding.

LH = Luteinizing hormone

In males where LH had also been called interstitial cell-stimulating hormone ICSH, it stimulates leydig cell production of testosterone. It acts synergistically with FSH.

FSH = Follicle-stimulating hormone

is a hormone found in humans and other animals. It is synthesized and secreted by gonadotrophs of the anterior pituitary gland FSH regulates the development, growth, pubertal maturation, and reproductive processes of the body. FSH and luteinizing hormone (LH) act synergistically in reproduction.

AI = Aromatase Inhibitor

This is a group of anti-estrogens that will keep AAS that aromatize into estrogen from doing so. Here are some AI's that are used. Aromasin (Exemestane), Arimidex (Liquidex or L-dex), Femara (Letrozole), Proviron (Mesterolone)

Although aromatase inhibitors could be considered antiestrogens by some definitions, they are often considered to be a distinct class.Aromatase inhibitors reduce the production of estrogen, while the term "antiestrogen" is usually reserved for agents reducing the response to estrogen.

AE = Antiestogen

is a substance that blocks the production or utilization of estrogens or inhibiting estrogens effects. (Estrogens are the family of hormones that promote the development and maintenance of female sex characteristics.)

Clomid = Clomiphene Citrate

A fertility drug to make women ovulate.

Don't use Clomid as a SERM to help block estrogen from binding to the ER.

Clomid is better suited to restore HPTA functions by raising LH and FSH levels.

Aromasin = Exemestane: Breast Cancer Treatment

Arimidex / Liquidex / L-dex = Anastrozole : Breast Cancer Treatment

Cyclofenil = Cyclofenil: A gonadal stimulant and inducer of ovulation.

Cytadren = Aminoglutethimide: Drug used for treating Cushing's Syndrome

Femara = Letrozole: Breast Cancer Treatment

Nolvadex = Tamoxifen Citrate: Breast Cancer Treatment

Proviron = Mesterolone: Used to regulate irregular testosterone levels
