- Post Cycle Therapy (PCT) -
When we supplement with anabolic androgenic steroids, our natural hormone levels are altered. The usual effects of anabolic steroids would be to suppress our natural testosterone production in one way or another, and we need to be careful not to increase our estrogen and progesterone levels so that it becomes unhealthy.
Saying this, Estrogen and Progesterone can both be controlled while on cycle with proper supplementation practices, but the testosterone suppression will remain. Then we reach the point where our cycle has come to an end and we have discontinued the use of all anabolic steroids, and as a result something must be done.
When we discontinue our steroid use, our testosterone levels are still in a suppressed state, and it’s often recommended you stimulate natural production and let your body normalize. While testosterone stimulation is the primary purpose, the normalisation factor of a Post Cycle Therapy plan is greatly important. For this we would highly recommend you
What to Expect
The primary purpose of Post Cycle Therapy is to stimulate your natural production of Testosterone and shorten or enhance the total recovery process. Understand this here and now; there is no post cycle therapy plan on earth that can return your natural testosterone levels back to where they were prior to anabolic steroid use immediately.
Wthout a PCT plan it could easily take a year or more for your natural levels to recover and this is not only stressful to the body, it can lead to numerous low testosterone symptoms; not to mention it is extremely unhealthy. Conversely, when you implement your post cycle therapy treatment, you will significantly cut down your total recovery time, but there’s something more important. While your natural levels will not be fully recovered, you will have ensured your body has enough testosterone for proper health and function while your levels continue to naturally rise.
Tamoxifen Citrate, most common known as Nolvadex is one of the most popular Selective estrogen receptor modulators, SERM’s for short, any performance enhancer will ever use and as such Nolvadex PCT use remains the most commonly used to return your hormone levels to a normal state.
If you Cycle properly and administer your Post Cycle Therapy Course correctly then all should be good. It goes without saying, that the more aggressive your On-Cycle is then the more aggressive you will need to be with your Post Cycle Therapy Course.
If you would like more information on how to perform an off-cycle and also how to use Nolvadex correctly then please see the thread in the forum entitled: **Post Cycle Therapy**
