It's amazing how many steroid users know FÂ£$k all about controlling estrogen or PCT. Whats worse is that many are more than happy to give out advice when they know full well they've fucked them selves up.
I know one person who used test and got gyno, had to have surgery and was (this was years ago, like more than 7) about to embark on a deca and test cyle the other day with no PCT, Adex or caber. Unbelievable! I suggested to him that he order some adex, clomid and caber.
Even worse, I met some one (through a friend) who is a national champion bodybuilder (here in the UK, in his federation and weight group)
We had a chat the other day, he is very open about his steroid use (at least in private) its clear from his pictures he has mild gyno and knows nothing about controlling E etc, he is probably on HRT so knows nothing about PCT, but I found it very irresponsible that he offers steroid cycle advice (which impressionable people take as they admire his physique and think he knows what he's talking about) which includes deca, test and no pct or anti E.
I expect some one probably gives him cycle advice and probably handles all his shots etc for him.
He advised a friend of mine his first cycle which consisted of 200mg deca a week and 20mg dbol per day, with half shots of deca the first week to make sure there were no adverse side effects? Also no caber, no adex/nolva and no PCT! He also missed a chance to screw an extremely hot women from deca dick on that cycle!
Another guy I know was on for 2.5 years (using nolvadex instead of adex, using deca throughout, drol, dbol, suffered terrible bacne, wouldn't stop the orals) came off using the 'one shot of hcg' a week before coming off plus maybe 30 days clomid, he had been using deca right up to the end of his cycle, ended up losing his libido totally,lost a load of muscle, split up with his mrs.... Wouldn't listen to me about attempting the taper...
I think many people don't care to think ahead or spend money on extras like pct, they think that so long as they've gained muscle during the cycle its been a success.
