    There was another thread about whether it is DHEA or DHEA-s that is beneficial. A lot on there hypothesized it was -S. I am beginning to agree. I have always gotten weird symptoms--breathlessness, irritability, knee soreness--from topical DHEA. But I found some pure DHEA powder and have been taking that orally (thus, it primarily converts into DHEA-S by liver passage). And it has been great. The topical DHEA was Haidut's, but not the DMSO form, so not that, at least not for me.

    Have you tried eating more? Do you also get cold extremities? What about taking something estrogenic or getting lab work done to verify effect on estrogen (, etc) level?

    Not that it proves anything, but I've been on Androsterone + Vit K for three months and never experienced libido crashing (3-5mg/day SFA). I will take a day or two off a week. Recently adding Pansterone, Vit D, and Vit A has improved libido even more. I still have the vitality feeling that Andro introduced into my life, but now I feel more grounded and less anxious about it.

    I did have to start eating more once I started Andro, but I've also lost weight since starting it.

    Many aromatase inhibitors are toxic chemicals with known side effects. Aspirin and progesterone are also aromatase inhibitors and I have not seen anything on them causing autoimmune conditions. DHT, which potently lowers estrogen and into which andro converts, is actually being studied as treatment for autoimmune conditions like MS. Andro has also not been shown to have bad effects, so in low doses it should be ok.

    Shoulders, chest, upper arms, and legs are all good placed. Any place without hair would work well but close to the torso has more systemic effects.

    I did eat heaps of sugar on this. Also, my extremeties are never cold, as my thyroid levels are quite high generally:
