Letro for pre comp gyno?

My mate has just ordered letro as has a sizeable lump on his nipples. Sore as fuk no doubt. Silly lad didn't have an AI on hand and is 3 weeks away from a comp, good condition but the gyno is noticeable when he does any poses from the front. Would letro at 2.5mg per day shrink this in time or is a more agressive approach required. He also has the chance to use other ai's or serms with this.
 
I have only ever used aromasn and therefore can't really advise him, plus I don't know if a larger dose would work quicker ot better.  He isn't holding any water as his dietis pretty good, its just the gyno is pretty bad :(
 
whats best?

    letro can take quite some time to get itself going properly. Sure ive read a study that said 60days to get stable blood levels of it 
     
    ive ran 5mg for a few days - no side effects for me 
     
    what was he running when he got it? 
    If deca/tren might need some caber or a dopamine agonist to reduce prolactin etc alongside the letro

    bert, interesting you say if he was running deca or tren he may need some caber. I am currently on letro to shift gyno, ( lump and puffy nip ) and it is shrinking the lump fast but the puffyness is still showing, i was under the impression letro would reverse both types.  
     
    also i have been on letro at 2.5 mg for 2 weeks and the gyno is noticable less, so depending on the size i would say 3 weeks is enough time to shift it.

    also depends on how much hes running too - if hes still on heavy andro's then letro may not work that quick....

    The only way is to run it and see and remeber this when another show prep is done.
     
    I would being running Nolva in show prep aswell and Letro if need at E3D.Well before sides come along.

    He was running 2g test 600mg deca for 6 weeks, currently approx 1.5g test and same amount deca. Its only started becoming a problem in the last 2 weeks, he started nolva when the pain set in but its done nothing so far. He is also on clen, t3 and gh.
     
    I suggest 5 days letro @ 5mg ed then 5 days at 2.5mg then e3d etc so only time will tell :(

    i didn't know that mate, how does it make it worse if it competes for the receptor and thus prevents the estrogen attaching to it?
    cheers

    Supposedl Nolva can increase PR mate, probably wouldn't be an issue im most cases and using nolva would be better than using nothing but it can become a contributory factor to the gyno in some cases so it's best to stick to AI' for gyno treatment if using tren or Deca.

    yeah I always run an AI even though gyno hasn't been a prob, but my mate although he competes doesn't quite have the same understanding of aas which is slightly concerning....
