Low Test / HPTA Restart Help


#1

Ok new to this forum and on a phone and I can not find the sticky for the hpta restart protocol so not sure if I’m posting in the right area but i have read it a couple times and going to give my story here and double check I’m doing it all right. Please move if not in right section.

So 27 have ran a cycle a year since 22. First 3 were pretty much a mess trusting someone who was more of a mess when it came to steroids. Been training for 12 years though. So wasn’t new to that.

long story short I did a test 150 tren 400 mast 400 per week cycle for 12 weeks. Ran hcg at 250iu x2 per week throughout whole cycle. Dropped everything except test at week 12 which I continued to week 14. Ran .5mg adex eod through whole cycle also. Then waited 2 weeks and did Clomid 100/100/50/50 And nolva 40/40/20/20. Now I went to the doctors because my nipple were puffy and bugging me post cycle thinking my e2 migh5 be elevated. Did bloods about 3 months after and my test came back at 340ng/dl. But everything else said I was healthy. Lh fsh e2 were not tested even though I specified for them.

This is in canada so getting blood work is not as easy as going to a private lab like most people on here. I have to visit my doctor etc every time. I have now went back in and got a new blood work form for everything.
TT
FT
LH
FSH
E2
So now I need to try and restart my HPTA and hopefully raise these levels. My plan is as follows according to the restart sticky

Week 1-4 hcg 250iu eod
Week 1-4 .25mg arimidex eod
Then get bloods done which takes about a week if my test is back up then continue to next stage of 4 weeks of nolvadex at 20mg eod? The. Get bloods done again to see what all my levels are at.

I can get all my bloods they tested and post them on here but everything else was all very good according to my doctor.

You can find everything here: About the T Replacement Category

On cycle you droped all but T, no hCG and shutdown, bad idea and not AI. ??

Horrible but typical: Clomid 100/100/50/50 And nolva 40/40/20/20.

Glad that you are making use of the HPTA Restart Sticky: HPTA Restart for TRT w/Application to Gear & PCT

First thank you for the reply but to be clear … At week 12 I dropped mast and tren and continued my test till week 14 to let the mast and tren clear before I dropped my test.

I also ran hcg at 250 iu twice a week and arimidex at .5mg e2d through the whole cycle. Dropped hcg end of week 16. Which would be 2 weeks after my last shot of test. Then started my PCT. Sorry I am writing this on my phone so I wrote that a little bit wrong.

But @KSman does the plan I laid out following your protocol seem to be correct?
