I apologize if this is something I should've been able to find via search, maybe I'm not coming up with the correct terminology to find what I'm looking for.
I just finished a cycle (if I should even call it that) of what was supposed to be testosterone enanthate @ 300mgs 2X a week for 10 weeks, last shot was Thursday of last week (the 4th of Aug). Now, as far as I can tell, this product was very much underdosed, but I don't believe it was totally fake being that my testicles did reduce significantly in size, I did break out in locations that are unusual for me in particular, and I did have particularly oily skin most of the weeks after the third or fourth.
I believe it was underdosed because I did not gain any additional strength besides the 5lbs a week for deadlift/squat and 2.5lbs a week for bench/OH press that I have been able to add consistently without any assistance, and I was eating between 4500-5000 calories a day (I weighed 224 when I started) and only gained 8lbs which from what I can tell is mostly fat.
I am finding that as of about sunday night/monday morning my testicles have been growing back to where today they almost feel %100 in terms of size. This brings me to my actual question.. is it possible that at a low dosage, suppression has been so mild that my HPTA is kicking back in without any help and therefore I would not need to use my nolvadex?
Believe me that if I could get my hands on more Nolvadex I would just do the PCT to err on the side of caution, but unfortunately I can't at the moment and as I do plan to try a (hopefully better) cycle later this year it would be awesome if I could save the ones I have now. I do apologize for the long post and would appreciate any and all feedback.
I don't think it's necessarily relevant to my question, but just in case, here are my stats:
29 years old.
training for 17 months
lower/upper 4 days a week, low reps high intensity first two workouts and higher (8-10) reps moderate intensity the other two.
**Edit- Added age to stats.
