Hi Thanks, no sides but I did have some heart inflammation most likely brought on from a virus so wanted to avoid any further stress on my CV and decided to stop drop out.
So, I would be looking to continue running the Adex at 0.5 EOD for two weeks post last pin and drop it to 0.25 EOD for week 3?
No hCG but I do have it on hand.
I cant really tell if i have hypog at the moment, certainly not apparent to me. Just to clarify, I had three injections at 500. In your experience of some shutdown at 2-2.5 weeks I have passed this by a week, so it seems to be ok.
I am in two minds whether to run the Nolva, but i will decide by the end of the week.
Sorry to hear about your CV issues, good luck resolving those.
You should drop the adex to 0.25mg EOD now. Normally you run, for example, 10 weeks of TE and 12 weeks of adex, halving the adex dose in the last week. Beginning of week 13 you would stop the adex and start the SERM PCT (usually nolva 40/40/20/20). Nolva reduces the blood levels of adex, so you are just wasting money if you take adex and nolva together. If you really wanted to run an AI during PCT you would have to spring for Aromasin but it’s kind of expensive and almost certainly overkill.
So basically follow option 1 from your original post, but cut the adex dose in half for this week.
Don’t use the hCG at this point, it is suppressive as well.
Based on my limited experience, I would say that you are probably only mildly suppressed. I hope that someone will correct me if I’m wrong, but nolva 20/20/10/10, starting next week, seems like a very reasonable safety measure.
I ran 600mg TE day 0, 300mg TE day 3, 300mg TE day 7, 300mg TE day 10, 300mg TE day 14, and by day 15 or 16 my testes had shrunk to less than half their normal size and my wife had a good laugh at my expense. This was with 0.25mg adex ED. I had intended to start hCG on day 14 to prevent this, but there were some issues with my source.
