    Still feel like crap after PCT

    Followed first cycle guide by austinite to a T. Just finished PCT a few days ago... Feel like shit still. I literally have no energy to do anything. Gotta force myself to do everything. Usually involves 5 minutes of convincing myself I can do it!!

    I'm falling asleep if I'm not being active, I'm so exhausted all damn day. Will I feel like this after ever cycle?? When will this go away? Ugh. I'm miserable. It's affecting my job and everything.

    Did you use any 19nors?. Maybe your prolactin is elevated. Estrogen...test...i guess the only way to find the cause and healingpossibilities is bloodwork.
    Heh..i know that is a real pain in the ass. Been there alot. When you feel tired and shit, the last thing you wanna do is get your ass up to the docs office and playing the target of the sentence "you had it coming son, we told ya)
    But, if you get your bloodwork. We can help you a million times better than any doc around.

    Fun fun! At least I know I'm not the only one. If I gotta feel like this every time I stop... Man, Idk if I can do it anymore lol. It's a trade off I guess.

    Halfway bloods indicated 28 e2, which is perfect. But, that was 8 weeks ago so it's probably irrelevant. I didn't use any 19 nors, only test. Blood work will be in 6 weeks. At least that's what austinite says to do it. Should it be sooner, say 3-4 weeks?

    6-8 weeks post pct is fine. No need to do it sooner whilst your hormones are still in huge flux.

    Yes, it's a trade off, some people have less symptoms and recover much easier than others.

    Good luck.

    SERMS can upregulate SHBG, that takes some time to normalize.

    Having high SHBG means free test gets low, hence the symptoms, despite normal total levels.

    Kyle, I recall your cycle log where you stated your T was under dosed, thanx to your supplier. Is there a chance that your PCT gear was bunk? If so veterans, what effect would that have on Kyle's situation?

    I am no VET on this question, but bunk PCT may lead to results just as OP is experiencing, however, need detailed bloodwork to identify and even that its hard to argue vs. ones genetics, we cant know for certain how each of us will respond to either gear or PCT compounds, its trial and error based on certain expectations more less, thats my point of view

    Well the pct stuff was from Balkan pharmaceutical. It was from the same guy but a different brand. I'm not sure though. I did feel some nut pain when taking it, upon research that's normal from pct. I dunno tho.

    That's very true, and I'll certainly do bloods I'm not afraid to spend a couple for my health. Bloods are so important and the only way to know anything. Otherwise you're blind. Not sure what the guy earlier was talking about, but I won't take that advice lol.

    Pct may be underdosed or mislabeled or fake too. Do you have packages or photos of these packages and names of your pct meds? Could help identify somewhat

    By names I mean exact labelling and branding

    It is advised to use pharma PCT and AI. UGL can be anything, and who knows which dosage.

    It is not that difficult to find pharma PCT and AI.

    I'd post photo of it, except I don't have any left. And the photos online link to "sources" don't wanna be flamed for posting a picture. Everyone knows who Balkan is... Google them clomid nolva, they look EXACTLY like that. I never saw him pull out of package, but yea...

    I know bw dont do shit but it will at least indicate where one stands and if bloods taken earlier than the washout is done I feel it should show elevated fsh lh and maybe even test levels if pct meds work. Things may not necesarily be related to low test sometimes, it may be other things too.

    I agree I should especially after pct meds have been taken(hence elevated LH/FSH) ... BW Is far more valuable as we can't tell what's going on inside without it

    Guys, how about I bump this thing to distract from the negative & hopefully get the attention from a vet to solve Kyles problem, if his PCT gear was ineffective.

    Sorry, have too much time on my hands today - off day, really need more hobbies, lol.

    Great call Proxi,

    I had free day today too, I found some answers I was looking for, finished reading some great articles.
    After all, lets hope Kyle will get this sorted sooner than later.

    Whatever

    Get BW & see where you stand and go from there



    I felt like complete crap after all 3 of my PCT's - but, my natural levels were always crap.


    Did, you get BW before cycle < most likely no. . . . .

    Yes, I did bw pre cycle. My test was already low "normal" all my other values were in range. Test was like 303 or something out of 273-1000. I have exact numbers in my thread I believe. But it's really close to that.

    It's different every day, but usually about 10-11 am it hits me and I feel like fading off the planet I'm so tired.

    Unfortunately yes, I was never diagnosed with it, but I also have anxiety (apparently they are directly related). But, it was a couple years ago. Actually, about 6 months ago I had an injury that took me out of work and the gym. I was never more depressed ever. I couldn't and didn't want to do anything. Injury is fixed, and I got back at it... I feel fine now I think lol!

    Just brainstorming, but isn't there connections between testosterone & serotonin? It would seem logical to me to have a drop in mood with plummeting testosterone levels perhaps more if there was some issue prior. Again, just speculating.

    I feel I can relate, I've been depressed for good few years on and off and never thought about checking my BW to see what my hormones were doing, and I just over a year ago started digging deep and found out I may have been lowT for a very long time and so the result of depression and so on. May be right may be wrong, but I feel it correlated in my situation alot.
    Its weird but to my understanding its natural expression of the whole biological composition on how one can not get depressed naturally when his biological composition at the time dictates to him that he should be "more emotional and less of a man", lack of self esteem creeps in, mood swings, low motivation, low sex drive, loss of libido and in general feeling like "what's the point" because things gone south in ones body, so fixing hormonal pathways alone can help big time, just my point of view. self-bro-science kinda

    Don't think they can really check for serotonin in BW as it is a neurotransmitter. But you're right, fixing the hormonal effect of low testosterone is a nice mood elevator, however still just as artificial though as an anti-depressant med.

    Depression is something never to taken lightly.

    True, there are many more things to be checked and put in place to ensure more permanent fix, gut bacteria flora, autoimmune disease, dopamine and serotonin re-uptake pathways and more, its deep business when it comes to details, but for most part, exercise and nutrient and probiotic rich diet must be in place before anything to do with hormones takes place, you'd know that gut flora is responsible for the biggest part of serotonin production in the body, not the brain... ah well, I dont want to drift out of topic
