Long time lurker, just registered. I’ve been thinking about doing a cycle for the past 7 years. I’ve finally reached a point when I think I’m physically and mentally mature enough to do it. That being said I want to prioritize health and think long term about what I’m doing. That’s why I decided to do a very basic starter cycle with only one compound (test) so that I can get a feel of how my body reacts to AAS. Also let’s face it - if I do one cycle, knowing myself, I’m pretty sure it won’t be the last and that’s why I’m gonna start low so that I have room to grow. Anyway, here’s the protocol that I have:
Note 1: I have pubertal gyno which I guess makes me prone to gyno (high estrogen?)
Note 2: This is NOT gonna be a dirty bulk. I will be starting at relatively low bodyfat percentage and I will monitor my calories so that I don’t get unnecessarily fat.
Note 3: I have access to the compounds listed in my cycle as well as: clomid & masteron. Nothing else.
Question 1: I doubt I’ll have a problem with aromatization but would 0.5mg adex be enough to keep estrogen low and prevent bloating/gyno? Gyno if obviously a huge concern for me cuz I’ve lived through it and I don’t want to have to deal with it again. Also, I don’t wanna be bloated all summer.
Question 2: I will have nolva on hand in case of gyno symptoms. How should I approach the situation in case I feel anything (what’s supposed to happen?), how much should I take (and for how long) do kill it completely?
Question 3: Would tapering down adex (2 weeks @ 0.25mg EOD) as I’m going into PCT prevent estrogen rebound?
Question 4: How often should I have lab work done? I want to be sure that if anything needs adjusting (like high cholesterol) I will get it under control ASAP. Also what kind of test should I have done?
Sorry for the long post. Thanks for taking the time to read it,
