Sorry if i misunderstood the context of your comments to Kountkoma. You told him that he shouldn't tell the OP not to taper as he has not tried the taper method.
I absolutely would advise the OP not to taper, even though i have not done it myself, for the reasons i mentioned above.
I think i might be missing something regarding the benefits of a taper in this scenario. You say that even from a cycle such as 12wks x 500mg of test cyp, for you, a taper would help with faster recovery. How does this work? What are the benefits from the taper? Are you able to stay on a low dose whilst restoring natural production?
I always thought that being on longer would result in making full recovery harder, even if the dose was low.
