I’ve been ‘on’ more or less for the past 6 months a break down of that time period is as follow:
Wk 1-8 TestE (625mg/wk) and NPP (400mg/wk)
Wk 10-12 came off and began PCT protocol with Nolva
Wk 13-16(?) - got right back on TestE (625mg/wk)
Wk 17-18 - Came off
Wk 19-24 - TestE (200mg/wk) Tren (325mg/wk)
All my cycles included Adex. looking back now at the dosages KSman recommends, I wasn’t using nearly enough. On average, I was taking .25-.5 E3D
Caber was included (all pharm grade) for my NPP and Tren although, I was still having prolactin right now with a dosage of .5mg E4D. Very small droplets of fluid would surface when nipples were squeeze firmly.
The nuts haven’t shrank too much on my past short cycles, but I’ve had noticeable shrinkage to this date. Both have gotten a little more sensitive and one testicle has gotten noticeably larger, while the other has stayed about about the same
Wk 25 - 28 - I started a test taper. I got my dosage down to 65mg/wk. I tapered down the Adex as well. Libido was good during that time
Wk 28 - Wk 32 (current) - In the middle of Wk 28 I ran out of test and began Nolva as follows,
Day 1: 60mg
Day 2- 17: 40mg
Day 18-30: 20mg
I’m now on Day 27 of Nolva and libido is weak. Hard to get it up, and when its up, its hard to maintain and very quick to go.
I’ve read all the stickies and some research and am planing to get blood work done by privatemdlabs. Based on the blood work sticky, Iâ??m going to get these values measured,
To make things even more complicated I’ve been on dutasteride @ .5mg/ED while on cycle and during those off times. I’m not sure if I’ve fallen victim to its side effects, but I stopped taking it 2 days ago and plan to stay off. Note This part has scared the SHIT out of me after doing deeper research and reading some of KSmans posts.
Can anyone share their opinions and/or recommendations on what needs to be done from here? Am I jumping the gun by expecting libido to be present at this point in time? I’ve always been use to it being there during my other PCTs. Are there additional values I should have tested? I have more nolva, clomid, and hcg coming in case its recommended that I get on those.
