    A closer look into trestolone

    Trestolone Acetate (7α-methyl-19-nortestosterone) aka MENT, is an extremely powerful steroid discovered in 1963. Trestolone was pretty much abandoned until the 1990s when the Population Council began looking at it as a potential candidate for male birth control and HRT.














    MENT induces a state of temporary infertility but has the unique ability to maintain normal biological functions in the complete absence of testosterone. This means that libido, energy levels, and sense of well-being are all maintained when running this compound solo.

    This is basically methylated Deca-Nandrolon, which completely changes the parent compounds pharmacology. But it lacks serious hepatotoxic effects because its an injectable compound.



    Comparing Trestolone to Testosterone
    Trestolone binds to the androgen receptor stronger than testosterone but doesn?t convert to DHT. This means that prostate enlargement will not occur like it does with traditional HRT. Trestolone also doesn?t bind to sex hormone binding globulin (SHBG), allowing for the maximum amount of the hormone to bind to the androgen receptors.

    This compound has an insane anabolic androgenic ratio of 2300:650. A 1992 study showing that MENT demonstrated 10 times the myotropic ability of testosterone in mice. I dont feel that this means the compound is going to build10 times the muscle as test. But it sure is a hell of a lot stronger and could be considered an optimized version of testosterone.

    Effects on libido and sex drive
    Belonging to the 19-nor family of steroids which are notorious for causing sexual dysfunction in males. This is why Nandrolone is commonly associated with terms such as ?Deca-dick?. This is where Ment is completely different and shares more traits attributed to Testosterone. Especially in male sexual functioning. The alpha-methyl group on carbon 7 prevents it from binding to sex hormone binding globulin. This means sex drive is very high while on cycle?insanley high.

    Ment is the only steroid that can maintain normal male physiology in the complete absence of testosterone. Many researches will be taken back by this, but this means that Trestolone can be ran without testosterone as a base hormone. In fact, I believe that Ment work better than Test in several regards when ran solo, especially in regards to libido and sense of well-being.



    MENT and Estrogen Conversion
    One of the few downsides of MENT is its strong estrogen conversion. It actually converts to a particularly nasty estrogen called 7a-methyl-estradiol. This means that use of an aromatase inhibitor is absolutely imperative to keep these side effects at bay. Some folks on forums claim that having caber or prami on hand just in case is a good idea. However, I have found that using .75 mg of Anastrozol every other day is sufficient as long you are?nt using a insane amount of MENT.

    I would actually recommend front loading Anastrozole a few days before taking MENT. I did this and the only estrogen side effect I experienced was a couple random?hot flashes? and some water retention for the first couple of days. This subsided fairly quikly once my body adjusted to the hormone as well as the AI.

    The only other real downfall of Ment is its heavy HPTA suppression.

    Ment is 12 times as suppressive as Testosterone but keep in mind that its a male contraceptive candidate. Trestolone significantly lowered both LH and FSH, 90% in just 4 weeks. However, levels returned to baseline post cycle. This means that a fullblown PCT with HCG, Clomid, and Nolvadex is an absolute must.

    What does a normal cycle of trestolone look like? What else was taken or preferred to take in conjunction with trestolone?

    Does this 7a-methyl-estradiol show up as estrogen on a typical hormonal panel?

    For the guys who prefer to use exemestine, what dose do you typically run in a cycle of this stuff?

    Does this cause the night sweats?

    I ran it at 300mg a week by itself with 100anadrol, I ran it at 200a week with no test and 250 test. Iím running it currently 100mg a week with 150 tren, 1000 test and 100dbol. Iím using 1.25 letro eod.
    The best I felt was trest by itself.

    What? Iíve done everything to a T and went beyond in figuring out what is/was going on. Didnít waste anytime either. Took it even another step further snd saw my primary for a referral to my GI specialist, who is booked out until after Xmas.

    Anyways, in the mean time why should I have wait until my health is 100% (which by the way ALL the drs are saying it is) just to educate myself on a new compound? Not allowed to learn? I said nothing about getting it and/or using itÖ.

    Not trying to sound like an ass, but you should wait till you are 100% and then dive into gear again. Good to learn new things however and then you'll be ready when it's time.
