    My PCT after 8 months of blasting and cruising

    Ok, so I took my last shot of test 1 week ago after running a blast-cruise-blast. I'm going to keep a log of how it goes, with bloodwork to help those guys that are thinking of coming off of blasting and cruising.
    I'm 32 y/o, 5'8," 205, 15% bodyfat, done having kids.

    My first blast:
    14 weeks of test e at 500 mg/week. then bumped it up to 750 mg for last 5 weeks.

    cruise:
    5 weeks of test e at 250mg/week.

    second blast:
    15 weeks of test e at 500/week
    13 weeks of mast at 350 mg/week
    4 weeks of tren at 350/week. had to drop tren early due to high bp.

    I ran aromasin, HCG (1000 iu/week) throughout, and ran caber while on tren.

    Here is my pct (5 weeks):


    • 1000 iu of HCG EOD while test clears.


    • aromasin 25/25/12.5/12.5
    • clomid 100/100/50/50/50
    • nolva 20/20/20/10/10
    • cialis if needed-

    I chose to run nolva and clomid because there seems to be some disagreement as to which is better for pct. Additionally, I have a lot of respect for Dr. Scally and he recommends both.

    I am fully aware of the risk I took from being on for so long, but it's the decision that I chose, and I'm going to deal with it. I have to say that I'm looking forward to being clean for a while. It gets stressful having to constantly deal with estrogen levels, prolactin levels, shot timing, bunk AI's etc. So, I'm anxious to get back to some natural training for a while.

    My biggest fear is ED while in pct. I can handle loss of strength, depression etc. But, the ED is not ok.


    • How many of you guys get ED while in pct?
    • Any input is appreciated

    How did you feel going from a blast to a cruise? Did you run any hcg during your on time?

    Subbed...I am running a rather long cycle now myself, so I will be interested in this log, especially with the blood work.

    Personally, I have never had ED issues during PCT. Decreased libido? Yes, but actually ED...no.

    I didn't really feel that much different, strength gains stalled though. I suspect I didn't cruise for long enough to notice much of a difference.

    I ran hcg 500 iu twice weekly throughout both blasts and the cruise.

    I think you will recover just fine then. What were your test levels naturally before the blast and cruise?

    I made the mistake of not testing them. I suspect everything was normal, I've never had any health problems, and always felt great. And, this is my first real run with aas.

    It's hard to keep up with all of these threads at times...

    It's understandable.

    I ran about 6 cycles in my early to mid twenties with no pct, my last lab test in the AM I was 541ng/nl. Im thinking with you doing all the right things you will recover.

    this should definitely be interesting, wishing you luck bro

    I'm thinking since you ran hcg throughout everything should go surprisingly smooth though

    We will be having similar logs as I too am facing the reality of taking a break from gear. I was considering cruising but I'm leaning more toward clearing my system and going natty for a while. However, I have NOT ran HCG throughout my nearly 10 month long blast so I'm banking on my PCT protocol. Have Clomid, Nolva and Adex for PCT. Not sure what natty levels were prior to this long cycle but I suspect they were well in the average range. 2,206 ng/dL was the level mid-way through cycle. Thyroid and cholesterol were a disaster so I stopped the orals and been riding out the final stretch on Test and Primo which has been a very enjoyable experience.

    Note to God - please don't let ED happen to me.

    Will get lab work after PCT to see where things stand.

    I hear ya man. I'd rather be weak and puny with a working dick, then ripped with a limp dick.

    On a positive note, a lot of what I have read is that low testosterone is rarely the cause of ED, but it's usually more of a circulation problem. I wonder if guys that experience ED during PCT is because their libido is so low that they just aren't interested.

    I look forward to your log.
