Not sure where to put this, but it just occurred to me, and I’d like some of you guys to chime in…guess a new thread is as good as any place.
Would GH use during PCT inhibit pitiuitary recovery?
Let’s think about this very briefly: goal during PCT is to bring back testes, pituitary, and hypothalamus each to functioning on their own. However, as they are all shut down after a cycle, I wonder if GH use during PCT–an idea that has been kicked around this forum–might not be detrimental to pituitary recovery.
We don’t know yet if AAS use causes the pituitary to decrease GH secretion as part of its response to being suppressed by exogenous hormone use. I haven’t seen any studies that measure that parameter at least, and we also know that exogenous GH use does suppress pituitary secretion of GH via at least one mechanism (somatostatin), and then some more (there’s never only one 1 kind of response to biological stimuli) but I don’t recall all the details right now…
Just thinking out load before I finally go to sleep for the “night”. Hope to get some thoughts.
Want some thoughts from the science minded crowd.
Yes I know it will help keep cycle gains when used during cycle, and/or probably also during PCT. Does the benefit outweigh the other side?
