PCT After 4 Years on TRT

Hello,

Long story short - i’ve decided to come off TRT after 4 years. I have a question regarding PCT protocol. From what i’ve learned - the PCT is pointless until exogenous testosterone leaves the body. Would it be okay to switch to HCG monotherapy (500iu 3x a week) for 6 weeks in order to stimulate the testicles + wait until my body clears out the testosterone? After that period i wanted to stop HCG and add clomid. What would be better - 50mg ED for 4 weeks or 25mg ED for 8? Or maybe 50mg for the first 1 or 2 weeks and 25mg for the rest of the PCT?

Thank you for any response and feedback!

Try this restart protocol: HCG 300-400iu daily X 14 days, FOLLOWED by Clomid 25mg daily X 28 days (6 week cumulative regimen). Anything longer just isn’t necessary as this is enough to kickstart most men’s HPTA.

Thank you. So even after almost 5 years of TRT it should be sufficient to take just 25mg of clomid ED for 1 month? Shouldn’t i be on HCG longer, though? I mean after 2 weeks my body won’t process all the exogenous testosterone yet.

P.S I wrote you a private message in excemale forum. I guess you can ignore it now :smiley:

This protocol has worked well on many patients and is used exclusively by Defy Medical because it works.

What if you just went the hcg route without clomid? Anyone have an idea for that?

That’s not a restart, it’s not much different than stopping TRT cold turkey.

I have pfs… Clomid has made guys worse, so probably not something for me.
