Receptors get desensitized for various reasons (environmental toxins, drug/supplement saturation, free radicals, inflammation, cancer, etc) which stall's growth. The reason to cycle is to reset the receptors, which by cycling helps to provide betters results (synthesis) of hormones, proteins, fatty acid synthesis (FAS) etc. Progesterone (PC) resets estrogen receptors (ER), it's up to you when to cycle, personally I think 3 weeks on and 1 weeks off (all supplements) provides a decent break imo.
How much or how many pro-aromatase to take?.....find one that works and take the recommend amount. Now some herbs do both (pro-aromatase and inhibit DHT), long chained fatty acids is one such example. Use no more than two, or one if the supplement is verified and standardized.

Once your body makes the adjustments to get back to homeostasis is the time to cycle, (ie. in a 7 day plan, try 5 days on and 2 days off).
Tolerance occurs when the person no longer responds to the drug in the way that person initially responded. Stated another way, it takes a higher dose of the drug to achieve the same level of response achieved initially.
