Hey, I’ve been contemplating my first cycle for a while now. Originally planned a 10-week Test E and Dbol run but have been researching shorter cycles and feel like I would like to try a 6-8 week Prop run only instead for my first time. The pip is not a concern for me.
I know most guys will say stick to the Test E but from my research it seems that the shorter the cycle the less chance for sides and a shorter duration of sexual sides for the ones that will be encountered. This is my main concern.
I know in PCT I will probably have the standard problems with libido, erection difficulties etc if I don’t take proper precautions. I will be using HCG on cycle and have my arimidex and nolva on-hand. I don’t have a source for aromasin so unfortunately clomid is the only other option that I can throw into the recovery mix for right now. PCT is a standard 40/40/20/20 Nolva for right now and adjust accordingly if the signs of low E appear. I have a few questions I hope you guys can answer regarding minimizing the sides during and after PCT.
- Is it advisable to use clomid and nolva in PCT to help bring back the sex drive? I have read that Clomid does aid in this regard but that a lot of ppl don’t like Clomid because it has it’s own batch of unwelcome sides for some.
2)Is a drop in sexual function/libido a near guarantee with just a short prop cycle like I am planning? I know shut down will occur, just trying to get an idea of how bad/good a recovery most guys on a straight test cycle have had.
3)I also picked-up DAA and fenugreek for after PCT. I use the fenugreek now and find it really helps. The DAA I seem to remember reading somewhere is actually suppresive. A good idea to help bring back to drive after PCT?
Thanks for taking the time to read and appreciate the help.
