    I think it actually depends. Gyno is surprisingly common and i think it really depends on one's sensitivity to estradiol (number of receptors in breast tissue). Luckily it seems it's not permanent if treated as soon as you get the early symptoms: swollen nipple, pain.

    Out of curiosity, did you libido increase after you started the therapy?

    Edit: Also, let's not forget an estrogen excess in men causes prostate cancer!

DHT is giving me nothing (besides the bad stuff like body hair, oily skin) and taking everything.
    what about your hair? how is that on your current hormone sitution?

    For now I'm still not certain if I have just a mature hairline or beginning a very slow balding process. I am shedding more than I would like which is concerning. If my suspicions are correct and I have high DHT then my follicles are most likely not very sensitive to DHT but still susceptible. Hopefully that means if I bring it down a bit I could keep my hair for a while, maybe reduce my body hair, and reduce oilyness in my skin.

    Reducing estrogen and/or prolactin. This is only works if you are in the first stages.

    I remember reading it takes around two months for novel breast tissue to "compact" and become permanent. However, very often the symptoms are mild and doctors are surprisingly ignorant in the matter, being reluctant to prescribe both estrogen tests and medication until it's too late.
