Help! Cutting Cycle Short

This fucking blows. Having to cut my cycle short because the ol’ wifey wants a baby. Had my swimmers checked about 6 weeks ago and everything was fine. Wife signs up for a fertility study and so they want my swimmers checked again. The numbers were horrible!. I’m only 4 weeks in on a 500mg a week dose of test c I was planning on running for 10 weeks with nolva 40/40/20/20 pct.

I started out at 206lbs and currently at 225lbs. This is my first cycle and I feel I have responded well to my gear. Any suggestions on anything I can do to keep as much of weight as possible. I haven’t retained much if any water. I gained 10 lbs in the first 2 weeks( I think I was just so stoked about being on, my training and diet were really dialed in) and now my strength is through the roof and making steady gains over these last few weeks and its all about to stop. So fucking depressing. I guess the upside is that my natural test hasn’t been supressed to long so I should bounce back relativly quickly right??

What can I do to make the most out of the situation. Remember, “If momma ain’t happy, ain’t nobody happy.”

Thanks

Have you looked into using hCG? It’s not guarenteed to make you as fertile as you be off cycle but it may be worth considering if your wife is opened to that sort of discussion.

If you do need to come off then you’d still need to run PCT. The one you’ve laid out is fine. Start it 10-14 days from the last injection.

Thanks Bone, haven’t done much research on Hcg other than a buddy of mine telling me it gave him the worst “back-ne” ever and he gave it away. I know that it was used to help with testicular atrophy( which I don’t have) but am unaware of its effect on sperm motility and all that jazz. On a side note, the test c not only has lowered the sperm count considerably but is also causing deformities(which reurn to normal provided nothing stupid was done).

Tell your wife to get her priorities straight. This is much more important than having a baby.

:wink:

Good luck with that.

I ahve seen this work. My training partner had the same problem, wife wanted another baby. She knew about his usage and was cool with it but told him “i want another child after taht do what you want”. SO pretty reasonable. He went off for 4 weeks during that time we used HCG at 500iu 3x per week by the 4th week she was pregnant and he happily went on about his business.
