Considering Not Using PCT...Need Feedback


#1

Came off a pretty light cycle of test and mast for only 8 weeks, made great gains in strength and size, experienced no sides. My last two pins (week 8) were both 125test ONLY and I considered this sort of a taper...

3 days after my last shot I took epistane for 7 days and for some reason my balls returned to their normal size, (very quickly) and I feel great. Not taking anymore epi, considering using some DAA for about a month and then a month of nothing until the next cycle. (Over 8 weeks off test total)

I do have clomid but last pct I only used clomid for two weeks (with daa) and I dosed it 50/25-12.5(second half of week) and honestly lost no gains, felt great, little bit of strength loss.

I am young and for whatever reason feel like the epistane jumpstarted my natural levels again...

SWIM and his girlfriend can get it on up to 4 times a day

I don't think I'm suppressed

I have read some people recommend a prohormone during pct to help restart natural test production(Stettler I think?)Though I don’t claim to understand much(only one cycle myself). I would have thought it could further suppress your HPTA, as I have always been told to do PCT after a cycle of prohormones(many of which are really oral steroids. Sorry I can’t give you a more scientific, authoritative answer.

i wouldn’t run DAA for longer than 2 weeks… there’s a lot of data that shows that’s not effective, and may actually increase prolactin levels.

i don’t know why you wouldn’t run a PCT… it’s not gonna hurt you, and unless you know that your HPTA is actually recovered, it’s the only real insurance policy to hold on to your gains…
