    Recommend gear while on HRT?

    After reading this thread and doing tons of my own research I want to start my first cycle. Here's my situation though: I'm on prescription HRT already from my doc. 100mg injectable test a week and 2 bottles of Androgel per month. With that in mind what gear should I add to that? More Test? Any advice?

    You would just increase your dose to 500mg weekly and follow the instructions. The only difference is that you would not perform PCT when done with your cycle, you would just get back on your TRT protocol.

    People still use androgel ?

    That's what I was already thinking. Just increase my test. And yeah, still in Androgel . 100mg a week injectable and 2 bottles of Androgel a month was the most I could get from my doc. Thanks for the advice!

    shelf life

    Wow that was very informative, and I really appreciate the advice.

    Reading this has convinced me to take the proper steps to do this. I'm currently doing research and planing my first cycle.

    I'm 25 I been lifting consistently for 3 yrs, and I'm ready to take it to the next level. So I though lol. I'm now in research mode lol.

    So my question is about shelf life of the estrogen blockers, blood test, and the pct. I would like to get all this and have it ready to go before I get my gear. This way I have it ahead of time and I don't spend so much at once.

    Any advice will be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance

    After doing more research and taking some good advice I have decided to not rush first cycle. I wish I was ready but it's evident I'm not.
    1st I'm in the process of rehab on shoulder.
    2nd I'm going to try and get alot leaner with cleaner diet, and more cardio.
    3rd I'm going to try and find a reliable and trusted source.
    4th I'm going to continue to gain knowledge about the subject.

    I joined this forum in an attempt to purchase gear I had no idea about pct or anything of that nature. This has really opened my eyes, and stuck a interest with me.

    I'm curious about the length of first cycle you suggest 0-12 weeks. To me (a newbie) this sounds like a lot. Is that 12 week a maximum. If I went less than 12 would it even be worth it?

    Thanks in advance.

    It's great to hear that you'll be holding off until you're better prepared!

    I hope you stick around the forum and help others with the knowledge you've gained.

    This thread is a culmination of decades of trial and error from the community as a whole.

    12 weeks seems to be the sweet spot for a first test e cycle.

    It's a long enough time to get amazing results, yet short enough not to impede HPTA reset.

    Sure, it would be worth it to cycle for less than 12 weeks, but once you begin to see results you'll want it to last for as long as possible.

    OK cool. I bet a lot of people jump into this and have bad experiences or see poor results.
    I plan on sticking around and continuing to learn, and make friends with like minded people. I'm still doing g lots a research on the subject. So my questions will continue. Hopefully they get a little better. LOL

    Thanks

    We'll I completed my first cycle of just base test. I was wondering if I could get any advice on the 2nd cycle. I have waited a year of not being on anything. Looking to do a base of test again but stack it with something else. Any help would be appreciated thanks.

    Simple. Repeat the first cycle and focus even more on nutrition and training.

    I hear you...was thinking about front loading, since it takes awhile for the test e to kick in...

    Also, next time around, I think I will start off with .5mg eod of arimidex , otherwise my E gets high and I don't feel so great...

    Never thought front loading was really necessary. If time is of the essence use short esters. You should always start with an AI as Test begins to aromatize right away, it does not wait. If you know your E gets too high, based on a sensitive assay then by all means up it a little. You probably don't need to double it though. Again, blood work is key.

    Week 19-20 Nolvadex 40mg per day
    Week 21-22 Nolvadex 20mg per day
    Week 23-24 Novladex 10mg per day

    It says above to stop the hcg same time you stop the test. I've also read continue hcg until pct. In my mind I would continue until pct. Opinions?

    At the time when this thread was written stopping hcg at the same time as test was considered the best way to keep leydig cells functions while at the same time easing the transition into PCT.

    New analytical and quantitative data is always changing the viewpoints of people who live this type of lifestyle.

    Over the last few years it has become accepted among a majority the experienced members here that it's most beneficial to use hcg starting on day one of the cycle until 2-3 days before administering PCT.

    hey about to start my first ever cycle i have purchased everything that think i need and I wanted to just get a 2nd opinion from all of you people ... As i believe I have done my research i still am a bit worried...
    this is what i would like to run...
    Cycle #1
    Anavar 50-80mg ED Weeks 1-8
    Test Prop 500mg (100mg EOD) Weeks 1-8
    HCG 500iu (250iu pinned Monday/Thursday)

    Avena Sativa 2-4g ED Weeks 1-8
    NAC 600MG Twice ED Weeks 1-8

    Clomid 70/70/35/35
    Nolvadex Breakdown
    40/20/20/20mg

    .....
    The few things I'm worried about as well as the noob questions are...
    Test prop, I purchased a bottle its 10ml. at 150mg/ml. Is 100 mg of test a lot to be doing every other day?... or should i start in smaller dosages?, like twice a week possibly? ... And what is with the test prop 500mg? ... I dont understand this what so ever? , Am i suppose to take 500 mg right off the hop?...
    HCG , Ive had so many people tell me that the HCG doesn't have to be ran until later on in the cycle ? , as well I've heard that 500iu is too much to be doing per week, what are your guys thoughts on this?...
    The anavar should i be running more ?, possibly 100 MG per day?
    Ive tried finding the arena sativa everywhere and I can't... is that a make or break ? ... everything else i have purchased and ready to go...
    as far as taking the climid and nolvadex, that should be done at the 8 week mark?, and how much and how long should I be taking these drugs for? ...

    sorry for all the noob questions and i hope someone can answer this cause I'm wanting to start this today/tomorrow

    thank you for everyones time

    Great Guide but HCG - still confusing

    This is really useful and practical guide, thanks for taking time to write it.

    My only confusion, based on stuff I have read is the HCG - I have been told to take both the Nolvadex and Clomid just like you are saying here as part of the PCT plan but then I have seen different views about when to take HCG. I have read to take it during the cycle, last 4 weeks of the cycle and I have also been told by a hormone specialist to take it as part of the PCT with Nolvadex and Clomid because his blood analysis suggested the recovery is much better when done as part of the HCG.

    Thanks again for the info.

    Follow the guide as written. There's no reason to allow testicular production to totally shut down by waiting until the last 4 weeks of your cycle, unless of course you don't care about your boys. Your hormone specialist is a bit confused. HCG mimics LH production and is therefore suppressive to your bodies natural production. This means it's counter-productive to take it alongside SERMS. It defeats the purpose....
