I have done 4 or 5 prohormone cycles before without proper PCT because at the time I did not know any better. This probably gave me some minor gyno that I didn't even know was there. After prohormones I switched to the real stuff. Here's a little history:
Time: 3 years ago
Substance: Trenbolone Acetate (Finalpix)
Dose: 1ml/100mg every three days
Length: 5 weeks
Side Effects: NONE (libido was throught the roof!)
Gains: 6 lb. pure muscle, I looked jacked! It was the shortest, sweetest, best cycle to date!
PCT: 2 large bottles Vitirx
Time: 2 years ago
Substance: Trenbolone Enanthate, Winstrol (Oral & Injectable)
Dose: 1ml/200mg every 2 - 3 days, 1ml/50mg Winstrol (Rotated between oral and injectable)
Length: 10 weeks
Side Effects: My balls had shrunk about 50%, but my libido was throught the roof!
Gains: Very good, but my ketogenic diet limited me
PCT: Clomid 50mg a day for 30 days, 1 large bottle Vitrix
Time: 1 year ago
Substance: Test Prop, Tren Acetate, Dbol
Dose: Done incorrectly. I started with the test prop 100mg EOD. A week later I added the tren acetate 100mg EOD and the dbol at 30mg/day. Each substance was used for about four weeks but they were staggered. The last week I was on tren only (bad idea!)
Length: 6 weeks
Side Effects: Fucked up! I started using Nolva 10 - 20 mg ED on cycle. I developed gyno by week three in my left nipple. I increased the nolva dose to 40mg. It made it worse probably because of the test/tren combo. I couldn't get letro until week 5. I tapered off the nolva and got on the letro. I did the letro for two months to rid the gyno.
I also had no libido starting week 3 of the cycle. First time and it was the worst thing ever! My prostate blew up too, and I went on Flomax for a month. Libido was almost normal in 6 weeks.
Gains: Huge weight gains (20 lb.), but not dry lean muscle that I like.
PCT: Clomid 50mg ED for 30 days (my balls had shrunk about 50%), Letro 2.5mg ED for 2 months, Animal stack (2 bottles), Andactrim gel on my chest for gyno (it was freaking me out; I had a small lump under my left nipple and the areola was enlarged.) Gyno went away and I actually had some sex drive while using the letro. Everything normal by month 3 thank God!
I didn't properly dose the test last cycle and it test now scares the shit out of me due to the side effects. Apparently, I am sensitive to test an dbol (basically any substance that aromatizes.) The test made me extremely aggressive and somewhat crazy while I was on it. So, for my next cycle I decided to use Equipoise because it is considered something "like" a weaker form of test.
Date: September 2010
Substance: Epistane, Equipoise
Dose: 3 - 4 capsules for 6 weeks Epi and afterward 400mg - 600mg a week Eq
Length: 6 weeks Epi then 12 weeks Eq
Side Effects: The Epi shrunk my small gyno lump; the Eq aggrivated the gyno a little, but I countered it with Arimidex which seemed to work well at .5mg EOD - ED.
Gains: 12 lb., but it didn't appear as quality gains that you would get from Trenbolone. The muscle seemed softer and not as dense as Eq is supposed to provide. My strength went up considerably and I trained harder than I ever have (10 hours a week). My squat was the highest it's ever been. However, I did not get the quality gains I thought I would make (thats why I kept the cycle so long).
PCT: Clomid 300/100/50mg doses for three weeks (my balls shrank about 30%), HCGenerate (1 bottle) and then after that Animal Stack (1 bottle).
Next Cycle: Questions
Date: April 2011
Substance: Test Cypionate, Primobol (Methenolone Enanthate), and Masteron (Dromastanolone Dipropionate)
Dose: 250mg/week test, 400mg/week primo, 100mg/E3D masteron (last 30 days)?
Length: 10 weeks?
Side Effects: I plan to use arimidex .5-1mg ED and will keep letro on hand?
Gains: Mostly dry?
PCT: This one I got from Anthony Roberts:
Week 1 - 3
Vitamin E: 1,000iu/day
Vitamin E: none
Vitamin E: none
Vitamin E: none
What do you think about the dosing above?
What do you think about the PCT listed above?
Should I use the Prisoner test taper protocol instead?
I am using the above mentioned PCT because I have these substances on hand and I need to use them before they expire.
Since I do not respond well to Nolva, should I substitute Clomid instead? It's a rather low dose of test, should I increase it (due to my history) or do I even need the HCG?
Right now I am on week 2 of the Velocity Diet.

Any help on this next cycle would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!
