Well, I didn't expect a rush of posts here, but a couple experienced posts I was hopeful for. I am going to take this post and advertise it around. I will post those results here. I know of a few sites Where there are some guys that might be able to shed some light on this.
I would say though that I am not discouraged. Much has been made about
IHT, or intermittant hormone therapy, but I think a key word here is intermittent. Which does not suggest start then at some point stop and not resume, but rather periods of HT on then off then back on, etc.
So I am bumping this in hopes for first hand experience responses.
