Ok fair enough you may have done a quick search, but cmon there are thousands of more recent first cycle posts with exactly the same info..
As far as putting more stuff in your body to keep your balls as healthy as pos during a cycle then I am afraid HCG is the only answer. People have tried SERMs to stimulate LH on cycle and it does not work...
Unless you plan to blast and cruise FOR LIFE then HCG should be used throught all steroid use - HCG should be used on cycle and not during PCT - HCG is best pinned 3x per week at 250iu. - HCG stimulates LH, so come end of cycle your body will hopefully start producing natural test easily.
You should also be using an AI like Adex on cycle to prevent test to estrogen conversion - Not a SERM like Nolvadex - Using a SERM has been shown to be inferior. - An AI acrually prevents estrogen being made rather than just stopping it binding.
Using a SERM for a longer period of timr than 4 weeks at a lower dose than the old 40/40/20/20 has been shown to be more gentle on the body and therefore being better at allowing itself to normalise after a cycle - This method is better than a short period of a high dose SERM which can stimulate the body too much!
