It doesn’t matter if it has a short half-life, you don’t start your PCT until you’re done with all AAS, period. Don’t you find the contradiction in terms of starting your Post Cycle Therapy while you’re still on cycle?
Also, there’s no reason you should be taking in HCG for all of weeks 3 through 12, save it for the last week you inject Test.
But HCG has no place whatsoever in PCT. It doesn’t make any sense. HCG has always traditionally been used for a Pre-Pct and people didn’t even know it. When running long esters for let’s say 10 weeks, the common wisdom is to run your hcg weeks 11-12 - that is a period of time where your exogenous levels are tapering off, but are still above a level that would allow recovery. Traditionally PCT would start at week 13, which is after the HCG use. To use Hcg after a short-ester (like winstrol) would be counter-productive at that time. HCG is used to stimulate the leydig cells through it’s simularity to LH, basically acting as a synthetic LH. Now if your body will respond to a synthetic LH (HCG) then it will respond to your endogenously produced LH (Post cycle); as post cycle, which again is truly after your exogenous levels have fallen sub-pre-levels, our body produces LH and is very sensitive at this time. We use drugs like serms to give us a kick start. Using HCG at this time would cause our bodys not to produce LH as it would be seen as present and we would also lose some sensitivity that we would naturally have enhanced at this time on the synthetic LH (HCG). Using Hcg during a cycle allows the testes to maintain function, suppression is a different issue, and therefore MIGHT allow for an easier recovery, and if not at least it keeps you a dangling unit. I’m tired and a bit un-focused, but I hope I’m making some sense.[/quote]
Oops. Sorry, I didn’t read your post clearly Contrl. I see now that you were telling him to use it after his last test shot, so weeks 11-12 or whatnot. I still prefer to run it all cycle myself. Anyway…
