AFAIK the only reason SERM’s bring the HPTA back online (in most cases) is due to estrogen.
It is (not only but to a large degree) estrogen that causes suppression and it is the blocking of the estrogen from the SERM that helps to bring the HPTA back upto par. I assume it is an antagonist at the
This can also be achieved with an AI. It would need to be tapered a little afterwards of course as we use non-suicidal AI’s (debatable by BR apparently).
This is AFAIK, i am not sure if i remembered my shit correctly.
being our major way of getting estrogen in the body is through the aromatization of testosterone if we plummet estrogen into the abyss then the body should secrete more testosterone in hopes that more will convert to estrogen. Since we are taking an aromatase inhibitor then that enzyme cannot convert test into estro and we are stuck with the body producing higher than normal test and keeping estrogen down.
in theory it sounds great but I imagine that tapering an AI down to practically nothing and getting as close to homeostasis as possible would be a better call.
I have personally decided to go on adex year round tapering down to .25mg e7d if need be and as high as .25mg ED while on a cycle of aromatizing steroids. I believe, in theory, that this could help keep test levels higher when not injecting testosterone helping in the ‘pct’ and then doing its job at keeping estrogen under control.
Too much or too little E and your physique is hurt. I think it’s just keeping E in that sweet spot while fluctuating Testosterone and its derivitaves through the pursuit of packing on more and more muscle.
SERMS afaik stimulate FSH LH (think clomid) and can increase test, sperm production, etc which is nice during pct.
I will be trying the stasis/tapern + SERM (thinking torem/clomid) and utilizing peptides during PCT to try and see if I can’t keep all gains while ‘off cycle’ or make new gains possibly.
in the end we are all just one walking science experiment so best educate yourself through literature, the trials and errors of others, and the trials and errors on yourself.
