Well 275mg/wk of a long ester like EQ won’t have been in you long enough (at 2 weeks) to be causing this effect.
It’s possible that your ‘EQ’ is something else.
I think it more likely to be the prozac that is causing your issues.
If you can get hold of proviron, then this should help your erections.
Also, you display a distinct lack of understanding when you say you are against test because you don’t want complete shutdown of your HPTA. Tough luck dude, 275mg/wk of EQ will shut it down anyway.
From what I’ve read, EQ only causes mild-moderate shutdown of the HPTA, as compared to something like deca or test. I knew that I would get some shut down … I just didn’t want it to the same degree that test would cause. Also I’ve done a cycle with Test and I got bad sides from it, so I don’t want a repeat of that. Oddly enough the test didn’t even shut me down all that much (boys stayed relatively the same size, and didn’t have a difficult time coming off cycle) so I figured the EQ wouldn’t be a problem. I still have nolva for a proper PCT btw. But the more I’m looking into it however… the more I’m convinced that it’s probably the prozac causing this problem. The confusion stems from my sex drive still being there, but the ability to maintain a good erection is more difficult.
But during a light cycle with a compound that, from what I’ve read, causes mild to moderate shutdown, would something like nolvadex, a compound that stimulates endogeneous test production, lower the amount of shutdown that one would experience?
Yes there are compounds (tren, nandrolone) that are (or seem to be) more suppressive than test, but I’ve never heard of EQ not being as suppressive as test (which doen’t mean that it’s not true, lol). Also, since suppression (as it relates mostly to recovery, post cycle) is related to time spent ‘on’, and you have no choice but to be ‘under the hormonal influence’ of EQ for a long time, due to the long ester, you may find you have a harder time recovering than you might expect. Maybe not though.
Anyway, the only way to know for sure about your low dose EQ with nolvadex idea, would be to get blood work done before and during the cycle, both with and without the nolva.
Hey, if you do it, I would be fascinated to see the results, seriously.
Ditto on the fascination part. If it works in your theory this could possibly be used as a bridge between cycle. Taking something that will possibly preserve gains, and not cause shutdown of the hpta. In theory it sounds great, but I’m beginning to think this should be an all or nothing type of deal. Anytime we try and manipulate our hormonal system with drugs taken to counteract each other it never seems to work to the extent we want it to. lol The only thing that does seem to work is to gradually ween off of products, like the taper. But then again you are not battling suppression here, but recovery.
If we could somehow find a way to take hormones without the negative feedback loops and suppression. Well that’d be just wonderful. LOL Sorry no real help here, just random typing…if you could find a way to minimize suppression from a lose dose cycle designed for recovery as you’ve stated then that would be cool. But as BBB said we won’t know without a blood work.
