Not sure if this is the appropriate place to post this, but here goes.
Quickest way to restore fertility during pct.
Brief background: I had been on 250 - 500mg test with a few extras thrown in at different times from January 2014 to January 2016. Stopped all gear in February 2016. Had a few hormone tests Sperm count tests and all come back with very low ranges.
Below is Nov 2016
Started 50mg clomid daily, within 2 months December 2016, here are my results. As you can see everything looks fine, sperm test results are also very good.
Below is April 2017, still taking 50mg clomid for fertility, everything still looks fine, sperm test results are also good.
I haven’t had any success with getting my wife pregnant, found out her hormone levels are poor and we need to try IVF treatment.
Decided to short light cycle of anavar before we head down the long and stressful path of IVF treatment.
So at beginning of this month (may) I started a 6 week cycle of anavar at 50mg day, I also take 500iu HCG every third day, the cycle will finish in 4 weeks. So, I will start pct in 4 weeks from now with the usual clomid and nolva.
My main objective is to become fertile with good quality sperm ASAP after my cycle finishes, as my partner wants to have IVF treatment.
The question is weather or not I should continue to take HCG during pct, because of the 2 conflicting points below.
Point 1: Everywhere I read people say that HCG should be stopped at the beginning of a clomid/nolva pct for HPTA recovery.
Point 2: However, I have also read that the most effective protocol to improve fertility after coming off steroids (not during pct) is the combination of both HCG and clomid.
Please help me understand the difference between point 1 and point 2 above, and what is the best path for my situation.
