Which PCT For This Cycle?

My cycle will be:
week 1-15 - 500 mg Test E / week
week 1-13 - 500 mg EQ / week

Which PCT do you guys like better for this cycle?

OPTION #1
3 weeks after last test injection:
week 18 - 5000 i.u. hcg /week (5000 i.u. taken in one shot!) & 100mg clomid/day
week 19 - 5000 i.u. hcg /week (5000 i.u. split into 3 shots) & 50mg clomid/day

or

OPTION #2
day after last test shot:
500 i.u. of HCG ED for 10 days
7 days after last shot of HCG:
50 mg Clomid ED for 21 days

if i had no other choices, i would pick #2.

you do, however, have other choices. I personally wouldn’t use either of those PCT protocols. if you’re really keen to use HCG (not needed IMO) it should be administered during the cycle, not during PCT…again just my opinion.

standard PCT can still work. you might however, want to take a look at P-22’s tapering thread for another perspective. most of the guys who have tried it, like it.

i personally use a taper with SERM aspplication during the final weeks…with good success.

good luck

You should start PCT 2 weeks after your last shot of test E. Any earlier than that - and you are not really doing anything as there is too much test in your system.

I would also drop the hcg for pct and just go with the clomid. BUT - if it were me I would use toremifene instead of clomid.
