    No. There's more to adex than just controlling E2. Besides, would you wear a seatbelt after you crash? Or use it as preventative measure before you're hurt? Doesnt make sense to wait until damage is done. Everyone should use an AI on cycle. Give these a read...

    I prefer E3D for my enanthate because I am OCD about stable blood levels... that being said, can I take hcg E3D as well (as opposed to e-3.5-d), or is that too often? I will adjust the dose to still be 500 IU/ week. What do you think?

    I think austinite would agree with me e3d wouldn't hurt anything but it's just wasting a little hCG for your cycle. I mean you can't wait 12 hours in the day till that night or the next morning to pin? Your levels will still stay elevated with e3.5d. Austinite correct me if I'm wrong. I'm no expert but from reading around that's what I've gathered.

    Thanks.

    I'm not concerned about stable hcg levels, just the test levels. But I figured id move up the hcg to e3d alongside the test so I don't have to keep two separate dosing schedules.

    I thought the idea was to not over do hcg to prevent over-stimulation, and I was wondering if the specific e3.5d frequency had some significance in that. I would still only run 500 UI weekly on a e3d schedule though, by lowering the injection amount slightly.

    Maybe I'm being foolish and should just do it all e3.5 days. Like Mon morning and thurs night... but I just can't wrap my simple mind around the idea of doing both AM and PM injections...

    I've never heard of an "hCG level" lol or am I referring to test levels. Do you even know what hCG does?

    What do you mean? Every 3 days is just fine.

    Technically there is a level for everything in serum based on half life's and/or clearance rates!

    And thanks Aust.

    Guys I apologize for my messages being confusing, I'm over-educated and under-experienced so I haven't learned to speak this lingo yet.

    3.5 days is just to give you some structure. Yes, serum would be more stable, but the difference between that and injecting every 3rd or 4th day is pretty negligible.

    Austinite, in your post about HCG use on cyle, regarding myth 2

    "Myth # 2: I cannot use hCG past 30 days (This is not true, use it for 2 months. It'll be fine)"

    are you referring to the shelf life of the product or the time its effective in the body when you say 2 months?

    Referencing potency.

    The half life is ~30 hours. It won't exist in your body after 2 months.

    You don't.

    Importing carries a ton of risks. Both legal and health/purity related.

    Support your domestic UGL's. If you haven't integrated yourself in the right circles yet... then chances are you don't have enough experience to cycle yet either.

    I live in colombia. Lifting people is about 1% of population. Lifting serious people even less.

    Damn, I wish I read this before I posted my thread....

    Very helpful and definitely going to follow this, thanks!

    Just to clarify, all other advice threads combine the Test with DBols. What is the pro's and con's of this?

    If something goes wrong in your first cycle you will not know what compound caused the problem.

    Nah man I'm not trying to be rude just saying if you got a script from a doc and you're on TRT just go by docs orders unless you're planning on upping your dose. Because I'm sure while on TRT they just dose you at enough to maintain levels. But if you up you'll run through your supply a lot quicker so then doc would ask questions.

    There is no PCT with TRT. You are on TRT for life.

    If you were to reduce the recommended first time dosage by 50% due to nervousness/fear would the 12 weeks still yield decent results?

    no, you would be wasting your time and causing more harm than results.
