    8 days into PCT balls still shrunk

    This is not typical for me from what I remember in the past. Usually my balls would be near normal size by now.


    PCT
    Day 1: 300mg clomid 40mg nolva
    Week 1: 100mg clomid 40mg nolva
    Week 2: 100mg clomid 40mg nolva
    Week 3: 50mg clomid 20mg nolva
    week 4: 50mg clomid 20mg nolva
    week 5: 50mg clomid 20mg nolva
    week 6: 50mg clomid 20mg nolva

    Weeks 5-6 are only included if needed, I run PCT until I recover, I don't stop after 20 days or 4 weeks like some of you do.

    edit: cycle was test prop, started pct 2 days after last pin
    Also to note, I had my last HCG shot 9 days ago

    8 weeks test prop

    I'm just paranoid because my boys are usually back to normal by now.

    Your PCT is aggressive; if its good you will be fine.

    What type of AI did you run with the Test P? If it was Adex or Letro you could be delayed by the estrogen rebound. Aromisin would cover this at the start of your PCT. It would bind up the aromatase since it is a type 1 steroidal AI, as the type 2 competitive inhibitors loose their grip. Its probably to late in this PCT for it to have much effect. Your 2 serms will get the job done soon enough. I just saying it might help for the next PCT. Even a half dose of 12.5mg for the first 7 days would do it.

    Just my 2 cents.

    PCT
    Day 1: 300mg clomid 40mg nolva
    Week 1: 100mg clomid 40mg nolva
    Week 2: 100mg clomid 40mg nolva
    Week 3: 50mg clomid 20mg nolva
    week 4: 50mg clomid 20mg nolva

    When I did pct I like running my hcg two weeks into my pct. I felt great and kept the old boys at desired size as well as the benefit of sexual health till the pct items I was running kicked in. Hopefully you won't have to go past 4wks as imo 6wks is a long pct. I know you said if need be, but if you do need to then I will lean more to your pct items could be bunk imo. I would also throw in aromasin at 12.5 during pct, again this my opinion.
    Never accept anything less than the best for yourself

    perfect example of why you should use HCG while ON cycle as part of on cycle support. i think youll be fine though. if its been 30days and your boys still havent returned than id be worried

    I have to disagree with your use of HCG. Running HCG during your first 2 weeks of PCT would be counter productive for full HTPA recovery. It would prevent the pituitary from ramping up to full production of LH. The HCG would raise natty test and still keep the feed back loop in shutdown mode. I have had better recovery when using HCG or similar products during the last 2 weeks of your cycle. This keeps the boys ready for the first shot of LH and FSH from the pituitary.

    But then again. don't trust me. Hit the boards and look at the HCG for PCT threads.

    If your balls are still atrophied then something went wrong with HCG. The whole idea about HCG is to prevent atrophy and go into PCT with functioning testes.

    HCG does not cause your testes to retain full size bro... they will still be atrophied to some extent.

    My balls have never been the same size. Always smaller. Fathered two children very easily. I would not worry much

    That's different per person. Mine don't shrink one bit one a right dosage of HCG.

    strong judgement
