What is the risk in not using clomid nolva only?
I was planning on taking nolvadex 30mg ed for two weeks pct
and clomid 300/100/50 pct....but was told that nolvadex is enough. What is the risk of not taking clomid? Does nolva bring up natural test levels as well as lower estrogen?

Keep Nolva on hand just in case you start to get gyno symptoms. Clomid should always be ran for PCT if you want to keep your gains and get your natural test producing. They are both essential.

I'm tellin' ya, back in the day (make that WAY back in the day!) Nolva was very popular, and if you were lucky enough to know the right guy, HCG was also availible (I said WAY Back didn't I), there were other things, but this for the most part, was pretty much it.
This Sucked, crashing was almost enevitable if you planned on taking what at the time was considered a "safe" time off.
I won't Even CONSIDER PCT w/out Clomid anymore. In fact, I like to get a little extreme. I like to run it all, HCG/Clomid/Priv/Clen ....etc, all w/ Nolva as well - all the way through though.
I can't even imagine spending all that money, working that hard, for that long, and then counting on just Nolva for my PCT battle.
You can always find someone to disagree, but in my opinion, Nolva is a Bitch Tit/Female pattern Fat deposit Drug ONLY! JMO, but when it comes to this opinion, I'm in good company.

I've read that nolva and clomid are very similar compounds. Also read that a study showed that nolva was much better at hpta recovery. Then again a lot of guys in here swear by clomid using the classic 300/100/50. There is many threads debating this topic in this forum. Check them out!!
I my self ran nolva only after my first cycle and I kept most of my gains. So I'm planning to do the same for my next cycle.
You might wanna check out BigCat's article on clomid/nolva:

I wouldn't run nolva alone for PCT.............. It takes longer to recover HPTA fuctions if using nolva alone.
I like using Nolva and Clomid in PCT........... Nolva will help with keeping estrogen from rebounding as test levels are dropping......... if estrogen is rebounding durring PCT you will end having a hard time recovering.

This is a debate that comes down to preference. Some like Clomid, other are afraid of the side effects and use only Nolva. The sides are way exaggerated, IMO. Clomid stimulates the body to release more LH and FSH to the testes for test production. Nolva does the same. Nolva also sensitises the testes to LH slightly, while some claim that Clomid does the opposite. It is negligible, if true. I would recommend using both. Clomid: 300/100/50, and Nolva 20mg/day. You can run nolva a little past the Clomid to take advantage of its sensitising effects.

Break outs are caused by hormonal imbalance, not by the Clomid. It is different with everyone, but mine wasn't that bad. It lasted only about a week, before my body adjusted (started producing a proportionate amount of test).
Again, I will always use both - and a lot of bros here will tell you the same.

I am completely blown away by some of these posts.
Don't get me wrong, there is never a day you couldn't find Nolva in my little goddie drawer, I use it "nearly" non-stop, but compared to Clo - no way, Not IMO, especially not ran alone for PCT. Years ago (many years ago!), when that's pretty much what was availible, I HATED coming off 'cuz Nolva alone just didn't cut it for me - Regardless of what this article says, or that article says, I KNOW from Experience that I personally need more than Nolva for PCT. During - always, but after.. uh-uh, I need more than that. I also like to start running Priv/clen starting the last week of my cycle....works great for me.

I think it's new, but have any of you tried that "Intermission" stuff from "Impact Solution" for pct... they say it will even make you grow when you go off your cycle by blocking cortisol..helps raise natural test levels etc...and it's otc....
let me know what you think...i know it's kinda off topic, maybe i'll post a new thread about it, but if any of you have any experience with it let me know...

Now the bummer is, for all I know, some of those things you see in the OTC market MIGHT be good, but I'll never know unless 10 people I trust try it, 'cuz I don't trust anything from Skids like that. Half that crap cost as much or more than the real stuff anyway!
