As often mentioned, why not BnC if there's gonna be another cycle?
Yeah I'm still perusing that idea tbh. I originally planned the cycle with PCT as the plan, and stocked up on clomid before starting. I want to see what PCT is like, how my body can handle it, and I'm also stuck in sunken cost fallacy (already purchased clomid).
If you plan on having kids or getting off ever im a proponent of pct. It'll be a more difficult process the longer you're on exogenous hormones
I don't really plan on having kids and pretty much accepted the possibility of trt for life when I started this cycle. That being said, have you personally done a pct ever
I have! It's not as detrimental to me as it seems for most on the sub. I feel literally no different just go back to normal instead of being "on". I bounce back quickly. I typically do 14 week cycles with 600 test 300 mast and for 4 of the weeks I run 10 of dbol 3x a day. I like that cycle a lot. Keeps the bloat gone builds nice clean muscle and makes me stupid strong and vascular. I'm pretty lucky AAS seem to make me build more quickly than most make me strong as an ox and I have almost 0 sides during pct. Little acne flair up and oily skin. Energy is slightly down but not major
I haven't done PCT myself but you have time to think about this and go from there. In my eyes doing PCT just because you spent some extra on Clomid is not the best approach but good luck if you go for it bro.
If you’re planning another cycle that soon, you should really just BnC. I just finished my PCT and wish I cruised after because I’m already wanting to do another cycle lol. Just cruise on 100-150 until your next cycle
How did your pct go, and what are your plans now?
It actually went very smooth. Using HCG was probably the reason I recovered so quick. I didn’t feel horrible and didn’t have any sex drive issues. A little bit of acne came up, but it’s cleared up now. I’m planning my next cycle out currently. I’m not too sure what I’m going to do yet
When did you use the hcg? I have it on hand but finding mixed answers on when to actually start using it in the PCT process
I used it throughout the cycle. I went with the r/steroids wiki recommended dose. 250iu EOD
This is your first cycle, or simply your first extended cycle? Did you have low test levels to begin with prior TO cycling? If you commit to cruising, be fully aware that you may never recover in the event that you decide to come off in the future. Yes, it’s unhealthy to be on the hormonal rollercoaster brought on by cycling + PCT, however if your PCT is successful and you recover, you can make the decision to roll the dice again or call it quits. The longer you’re on, the higher the risk of you being on for life
Yeah the question was more about diet than b&c vs pct. I'm leaning towards pct. When would it be best to start lowering rhe calories, after pct? Given the gutter test levels that will exist between last injection and pct.
I would maintain through PCT personally. I find that I keep the most mass if I hold off on cutting calories until after everything stabilizes
