Just been reading up on this stuff and still trying to decide which to use for PCT. sust 500mgs/week 1-12 dbol 25mgs/ED 1-4 winstrol 50mgs/ED 8-12 I was planning on using Nolva only if I had signs of gyno. Planned on using Clomid 300mgs/1st day, 100mgs 2 weeks, 50mgs 3rd week. After reading up a bit it seemed that clomid and Nolva both act the same way. Now with Arimidex it can elevate testosterone, lower estrogen and keep healthy joints and lipids. Should I just use arimidex and run it @ .5mgs throughout the cycle ?? or should I just stick with Nolva on hand and Clomid for PCT. Also since Arimidex prevents the body from converting testosterone into estrogen wouldn't that be enough without the need of nolva/clomid? Its not just a common myth in steroid circles, but even in the medical community. This misconception originates from their completely different uses. Nolvadex is most commonly used for the treatment of breast cancer in women, while has generally been used as post-cycle therapy and Nolvadex as an anti-estrogen. But as I intend to demonstrate this is in essence the same. I believe the myth to have originated because Nolva is clearly a more powerful anti-estrogen, and the people selling (and also Nolvadex, logically) works to bring back natural testosterone in the body after the conclusion of a cycle of androgenic anabolic steroids. After a cycle is over, the level of androgens in the body drop drastically. The body compensates with an overproduction of estrogen to keep steroid levels up.
After using a prohormone or steroid, the hormone balance of your body is usually out of whack, with the usual result being your natural testosterone is low (because you took a compound that artificially boosted it) and your estrogen elevated (to offset the higher testosterone). If you’ve been doing any reading about using prohormones or steroids, you’ve probably wondered this yourself, at least when you first started doing your research. When you stop taking the compound, your testosterone blood levels drop very quickly, but estrogen and other catabolic (muscle destroying) hormones can remain high. This can make it difficult to keep the gains you made on cycle. The purpose of PCT is to quickly restore your body’s natural production of anabolic hormones and reduce catabolic ones. In order to understand PCT, you eed to know a bit of how your body works when it comes to producing hormones and building muscles. In males, starting in puberty, the Hypothalamus begins to secret Gonadatropin Releasing Hormone (Gn RH). This causes the pituitary to produce Follicle Stimulating Hormone (FSH) and Luetenizing Hormone (LH). Other's pick nolvadex over the rougher sides on clomid, some feel like an emotional wreck (like myself). It's all personal choice, one prefers clomid over the IGF-1 lowering with nolvadex. I believe clomid helps to kick start the natural t levels to get them to come back to normal sooner. I normally keep nolva around for possible gyno symptoms while on cycle. When i first started clomid only was pct AND on cycle estrogen suopport. Now if i HAD to choose just 1 it would in fact be clomid. Anabolic steroid -induced hypogonadism--towards a unified hypothesis of anabolic steroid action. Source HPT/Axis Inc., 1660 Beaconshire Road, Houston, TX 77077, USA. I did read a interesting study though that was saying less clomid could be used during PCT and still be quite effective. Things evolvd and the nolva/vlomid pct became the norm. Here is the other reason I think both are best This is Dr Scally - prob the formest expert on treating steroid induced shutdown : Med Hypotheses. Abstract Anabolic steroid-induced hypogonadism (ASIH) is the functional incompetence of the testes with subnormal or impaired production of testosterone and/or spermatozoa due to administration of androgens or anabolic steroids . This would eliminate some sides some get from clomid. Anabolic-androgenic steroid (AAS), both prescription and nonprescription, use is a cause of ASIH. What I have in mind for this cycle is 200mgs clomid the first day of PCT and then 100mgs for the ramainder of that week. Current AAS use includes prescribing for wasting associated conditions.
Clomid and Nolvadex are both SERMs. However they each act somewhat co-administration of Clomid and Nolvadex produces a more pronounced elevation of luteinizing. Hi guys Ive read here that its more effective to take both of these together for PCT? Ive got Nolva but if the answer to the above is yes then i can ge.
