PCT / ON-CYCLE
Is a PCT recommended and why?
During a pro-hormone cycle, the level of androgens within the body drops as an external hormone source is present. To compensate for this drop, your body starts overproducing estrogen to try to balance the hormone levels out. Once the external hormone source is removed (you come to an end of your pro-hormone cycle), your natural testosterone levels are still inhibited while your estrogen levels are still above baseline. Clomid and Nolvadex will reduce the post-cycle estrogen and then stimulate the hypothalamus to regenerate natural testosterone production in the body. This is important as the faster you can bring back your natural testosterone levels, the more of the gains made during the cycle you’ll keep. After all, what is the point in running a pro-hormone unless you keep the majority of the benefits? Upon completion of your pro-hormone cycle a PCT is usually started the day after your last dosage and should be run for a minimum of a 4 week period. Once PCT has finished ideally you want to stay off pro-hormones for the same length of time as you spent on cycle and PCT combined.
