The HCG used like that wont help you much at all.
Used in small amounts, frequently during the cycle will keep the testes working throughout preventing atrophy and reducing the level of shutdown. Prevention is better than cure.
If you use HCG in that dose it is counter productive as it raises estrogen thru aromatase which then adds to suppression of the HPTA… plus using it post cycle is nowhere near as effective as during. Prevention…etc…
i have used it post cycle and it works great - until you stop the shit!!! Then it is back to square 1. HCG is, these days, used primarily during cycles - the old protocols of 1500-2500iu every 5 days for 2 - 3 weeks during PCT are over.
Used in that way, it is 1 step forward and 2 back.
As it is your first cycle, it is likely you will recover within 4 weeks with nolvadex use… But i am obliged to recommend the most effective method i know of using Deca alone. And the only extra product you will be using is the proviron.
What you actually end up doing is your business and your business alone - all i can do is give my opinion and swear occasionally.
Deca is a very long ester… but due to its depot in adipose it has metabolites that are released long after the cycle has ended. (no, not re-esterified RJ, i used the wrong word - sorry) In SOME individuals this causes an extended HPTA shutdown IME. Plus its a progestin - which raises prolactin which i suspect is the big reason Nandro is so damn hard on the male libido - not to mention the Dihydronandrolone issue, the prolactin just makes a bad day worse - it is a real floppy dick maker.
Caber would be great as pct i have come around to thinking, but is un-necessary for you i think…
Back on track.
In short, yes. You can get away with a little less of an aggressive PCT but ONLY as it is the first cycle and you are MORE LIKELY (by no means guaranteed, everyone is different after all) to be able to recover quickly with the generic 40/40/20/20 nolvadex protocol.
However, if you have HCG, or want to use it, why are you so intent on using it after the cycle when teh ballz have been shrunk? Why not use it to PREVENT that happening… even if you just do 500iu every 5 days?
trust me, when the ‘others’ come, they will agree on this at least…
How much HCG do you have, or are you planning on buying, 5000iu? 3x1500iu?
That would suffice for 50iu ED or 100iu EOD(4x/wk) or hell, even 150iu 3x/wk is a good protocol.
Even if you did it every other week - although 3000iu would last you the duration for an 8 weeker.
100, 300, 1000mg Nandrolone are all as suppressive as each other. I know that you seem to have read that nandrolone is considered mild - but that is more in the typical androgenic sides, or in comparison to many other steroids, as it is only mildly androgenic, converting into the variation of DHN rather than DHT. it is not toxic, it barely aromatises and is a great drug for bulk or cut. It a good muscle builder - great alone and excellent when stacked with test.
Many of the internet profiles were written years ago - they are a little outdated and not quite cutting edge (still excellent some of them, but some finer points regarding practical use is missing IMHO).
More is now understood about Nandrolone’s mode of action and what that means. Prolactin is the hormone of the month this month, and while HCG/Tamox wont fix that - it will virtually guarantee a smooth transition into a working HPTA and retention of ALL of your gains IF used in the manner in which i suggested.
Stick THAT in yer crack pipe and smoke it! ;p
