According to the research Ive done, it seems like an Anavar only cycle would not require PCT or an anti-estrogen. However, many people seem to think otherwise. Id like to hear some of your opinions on the subject. I'll include some qoutes from my research material.

"An anti-estrogen is not necessary when using this steroid, as gynecomastia should not be a concern even among sensitive individuals. Since estrogen is the usual culprit with water retention, oxandrolone instead produces a lean, quality look to the physique with no fear of excess subcutaneous fluid retention."
- Anabolics 2010

"Oxandrolone by itself will not significantly suppress natural testosterone production."
- Chemical Muscle Enhancement



Why take the chance and not do a PCT? you swallow a tiny pill for 4 weeks just do it, its not going to kill you.


your research is critically flawed. You will need a pct.

Also, an anavar only cycle is not worthwhile at typical dosages.


You're better off going on test, but you will get mild gains from var only @ 100mg/day. But you definately do need a pct.


Thanks for the feedback guys. I'm not currently on a cycle, I was just curious because I've heard conflicting opinions about anavar. I was more inclined to believe what was written, but then again you can't believe everything you read.
If anyone else would like to add to the discussion please do.
