i think the section on post cycle therapy will answer your question
I got some milk thistle, nolva, and 4derm today to prepare for my cycle that I plan on doing. I'm reading the m1t bottle and it says it does not convert to estrogen. Why then do I need an estrogen blocker?
It is extremely rare, but incase you develop gyno, you will need the nolva, but mainly it's for PCT. When you come off, your test levels will be that of a 5 year old girl, and you need the nolva to help block estrogen at the receptor sites, thus helping you feel like a man again as opposed to a menopausal woman.Originally Posted by crimsondestinyx
lol. it's just that someone somewhere on this forum said i needed to do the pct to retain the gains or something like that.
PCT is essential no matter what, because you will be shut down big time. M1T hits you hard and fast, and you will lose a good bit of your gains if you don't run PCT properly. IMO you need to read up on it a bit more.Originally Posted by crimsondestinyx
i got that, but is the nolva used for retaining the gains?
