    Deca cycle question

    First off...I have read tons of posts and done my fair share of research. My question is...What can I expect from a 10wk/300mgperwk cycle of Deca . It looks like everyone says you gotta have some Test, but I'm just wondering what the effects will be if I only used the Deca.

    You'd probably lose your libido, gain some water for 10 weeks, and then lose the majority of the weight/strength you gained.. all of it if you don't run proper post cycle therapy .

    Really can't tell, you may or may not lose your libido, depends on the person. Your chances of getting prolactin gyno are increased and the deca being a progestin will affect your natural test production for quite some time. So only you can decide what to do, it's your body.

    Forget the Deca and take Test!!! You will be much happier with the results!

    Are you saying none of this happens if not taking DECA and using another AAS like TEST or are you saying...DO YOUR PCT?

    Because some folks will have libido loss with TEST also...not at widely reported as DECA but nonetheless there is a loss of libido with TEST.

    Also, the last I checked...Deca armotizes (about 1/5 the rate of TEST) far less than Test hence less water gain.

    Finally, Deca is a slow builder: "Deca is not known as a fast builder...A cycle lasting eight to twelve weeks seems to make the most sense, expecting to elicit a slow, even gain of quality muscle (Page 89, Anabolics 2004, William Llewellyn)." This translates into a better chance of maintaining gains from DECA than TEST (Bloat from TEST is a lot higher than DECA, hence more water weight is lost after a TEST cycle).

    To the orginator of this thread: In general, most will warn you away from a DECA only cycle. Personally, it's up to the individual (some have reported libido boost from DECA only cycles)....but some test with deca would be a better choice....although...again, without proper PCT you will lose a lot more of your gains if not on a solid PCT.

    Very good advice. I think you hit it on the head.

    I had a friend who took Deca by itself when he was a junior in high school and gain twenty five pounds and kept all of it. It was 200mg/10wks, with proper pct. Let me know what your going to do

    what's the best to use for pct to keep best "optimal gains?" (after deca )





    It is as satisfying to me as coming is - you know, as having sex with a woman and coming. So can you believe how much I am in heaven?

    Big klg summed it up pretty good. I would never think about doing deca only! I had a minor case of limp willy at the end of 500mg sust / 400mg deca cycle. I can't imagine doing just the deca! Test rocks. For a healthy man, if you want to do a single drug cycle, do a test cycle.

    It is not a manditory side to get a deca dick. I know many ppl that started with deca only cycles years back and they never reported any trouble. sometimes I think all the praising of a drug or all the hammering is just because someone said that...of course, there will always be ppl who wil lexperience problems with deca. but guess what: there will always also be ppl who experience problems with test.
    I don t see the big problem with deca, no more then with other steroids . it totally depends on your body, how u will react, no forecast possible. there is a chance that u might develope sides and there is also the chance that u won t experience any sides. it is hard to tell and all we can contribute to this theme are personal or second hand experiences. that is not very scientific, I guess.

    hopefully back to my question though,
    what could a person take to come off a deca only, other than what i put up above, mainly for keeping optimal gains. What can someone who is coming off take to keep as much gains and strengths that they have acheived ?

    The guys just say that it's not worth the risk. I guess sex is more important to some than others?

    Do you consider it a 50/50 chance of loose libido with deca only?

    I dont think it would be fun to workout with very low test level. The results will not be good at all and that would be not cool especially after a cycle I guess?

    Or have I misunderstood about the test level and deca? Is there a conection between the test and libido in this case?
