I’ve been doing Test E only cycles for a few years. I’ve got it down pretty solid, but I want to run something by everyone.
As I approach the end of a cycle I taper off rather than cold turkey and PCT a couple weeks after last injection.
On cycle - 125mg to 250mg M/Th ( I gave a range because I vary it depending on the purpose of the cycle or what I have on hand)
Taper - 50mg M/Th for 3 weeks
Nothing for 2 weeks
150mg Clomiphene ED - 1 week
100mg Clomiphene ED - 1 week
50mg Clomiphene ED - 2 weeks
Then I’m off cycle.
I do blood work at various times throughout and at the end to make sure I’m back to baselines. I tolerate everything quite well. However, I start feeling the effects of Low T in the 2 week period of nothing, especially the second week.
My blood work shows that I am at my baseline total and free T about 4-5 days after the last 50mg taper injection.
So… What I’m wondering is does it make sense to start the Clomiphene at day 5? I think conventional wisdom is to wait 14 days since much of the Test E is out of your system at that point. Since I’m already down to my baseline natural level by day 5 is there really any benefit to waiting for more of the Test E to clear from my system, which also means my total & free T are dropping below my baseline since I’m shut down at that time?
