    Re: Do DHT based steroids affect the prostate?

    - Steroids cause BPH (Benign Prostate Hyperplasia)

    Possible. BPH is enlargement of the prostate, that usually effects only older men. But, if you use steroids for years, then BPH will probably affect you. Getting BPH from steroids, would depend on how susceptible you are and how long you have used Steroids. Many users of steroids notice a enlarging of their prostate after a while on cycle, making it slighlty more difficult to urinate. There is controversy over what really causes BPH naturally in men, but DHT is thought to be just one possible component. DHT is converted from testosterone in the body and is 3.5 times more androgenic than testosterone. DHT is what gives men their masculinizing sex effects on the body. All androgenic steroids stimulate the same receptors on the prostate (to various degrees called the androgenic to anabolic ratio) in the same way DHT does.

    Another mechanism by which BPH might be caused from steroid use, is due to low testosterone levels post cycle. Low testosterone levels and high estrogen, like as seen with post cycle and hypo gonadal men, can actually cause BPH. Many men have had a reduction in BPH when they were treated clinically with testosterone replacement therapy for low testosterone. The prostate usually shrinks back eventually after a steroid cycle, once your testosteron levels get back to normal, but over time I would think this may lead to a more permanent enlargement effect.

    - Steroids increase risk of prostate cancer

    Myth. For years doctors thought testosterone (steroids) caused prostate cancer itself by “awakening” a slow hidden growing cancer. This is why men who went on HRT (hormone replacement therapy), would get a PSA test to assess their risk for prostate cancer. As time goes on more and more studies are showing prostate cancer is not due to testosterone levels at all and therefore steroid use wouldn’t have any correlation with prostate cancer. This makes logocial sense to me, since younger men would be getting prostate cancer due to the high testosterone levels. It’s also worth to note, that the prostate holds up to 600 times the level of carcinogens as the rest of the body. I believe the risk of Prostate cancer is mainly caused bytoxins and other genetic factors. This is why it was shown in recent studies, that men who ejaculated more frequently in the 20’s, had less likely chance of prostate cancer later in life. Ejaculation helps the flushing of the prostate from cancer from these toxins. Some research studies are also showing increased risk of prostate cancer based on genetics, race, diets, and environmental factors.

    Re: Do DHT based steroids affect the prostate?

    Thanks bro. I'm a little stuck right now. I'm worried that the Primo might make things worse because its DHT based. Everything I've read is contradictory. The problem is, once I put it in, I can't take it out. Maybe I will start with low doses for 1-2 weeks to see if it makes the situation worse. Maybe the only way, what do you think?

    If you have prostate enlargement, I would avoid DHT based joozes's.

    Re: Do DHT based steroids affect the prostate?

    For me it's the opposite. I have had some prostate issues in the past (years previous to cycling) and since i've started cycling it's estrogen that gives me the BPH symptoms, not DHT.

    There have been 2 most obvious times it's happened. The first was 3 weeks into a PCT, and the second was when running a little dbol without an AI. That thing felt like it was the size of a fucking baseball lol.

    Yes. It comes and goes severity-wise. I've been taking supplementation with less than stellar effect. Any advice?
