First, is your HGH actual pharma grade or did you get generic Chinese stuff like 90% of us. That generic stuff can get you down. Idk if it is because of how they process it or what but I have heard enough guys complain about it. Some guys get cold like symptoms from it.
Second Nolvadex is a SERM and essentially it is a synthetic one off from estrogen. Kind of like how EQ is a modified testosterone molecule. Some guys are just sensitive to that stuff. Now don’t go panic and stop your PCT early because you read it’s a one off from estrogen. It’s was originally made for breast cancer treatment and in those cases the natural estrogen stimulates the tumor growth or something like that. So the Nolvadex goes and acts like estrogen in our system to regulate certain body functions but we as men after a cycle primarily want it to block gyno and kick start our natural test production. You just might be sensitive to Nolvadex, next cycle maybe you should explore clomid to see if that works better.
I do have to point out that for your first cycle you are taking a LOT of new compounds and this is going to make it difficult for you to pin point what is causing which side effect. This is why we always say just test the first cycle then one new compound per cycle. You started with test, EQ and HGH.
For the acne. I get break outs going into a cycle or blast and coming off. It’s whenever the hormone levels are changing significantly that seems to kick it off. Also when I use test prop I get breakouts period, different doses, different brands doesn’t matter I break out. So between those two I wouldn’t be overly concerned with the acne unless it stays for months and months and months. Remember if you get it from fluctuating hormone levels then as long as your body is still recovering test production you will break out most likely. And recovery is well past the end of PCT. The PCT just kick starts it and get us to a level that is not dangerously low, it takes months to fully recover.
Your HCG is measured in IU’s and usually you get a 5000iu kit. There is no way you were taking 1 iu of HCG. It was probably a typo and you probably meant 1000iu just wanted to point that out because properly notating dosages is vital when asking for input on here. Then again you could have been trying to tell your HGH dosage (which would be 1iu) and you didn’t even touch HCG. Given that you started it after your last shot of test I figured you meant HCG.
We all went through the early days of either miss labeling doses or thinking in terms of tablets and shots vs milligrams and IUs (international units).
Blast and cruise is where basically you are on testosterone replacement therapy levels all the time but then go up to cycle level doses for 10-15 weeks (blast). I would try to make a proper recovery before you just start doing this because basically once you do that you cant stop.
I might have missed it but what age are you? That does effect the advice given on this site.
