There is plenty of information about men's use and cycling of tribulus, but as a beginning fitness model (female) interested in the strength-training, anti-inflammatory, and hormonal benefits of tribulus, I am having difficulty finding any usage information for women.  Mainly I want to know how to take tribulus in concert with my ovulation and the monthly pattern of hormone fluctuations that are a part of that.  I want to increase free testosterone to as healthy level as possible without overdoing estrogen production, and it only makes sense that while taking a tribulus extract that influences hormones, I must design my regimen according to the female cycle--rather than follow the men's recommended cycle of 8 weeks on/2-3 weeks off.  Thanks for any information!

Vanessa, the data looking at the effects of Tribulus on testosterone in men is less than impressive or compelling. It may be a legit (with emphasis on the word "may"...) libido enhancer, but it's unclear at best if that's happening via Testosterone. Personally, I think the data for DHEA increasing testosterone in women is much more compelling.
