    HCG “catch up” dose on test e cycle

    Hello all-

    33 year old male
    6’0 210 lbs
    18% ish BF
    12 year training history including powerlifting and bodybuilding
    Cycle history: sustanon x 8 weeks with PCT 8 years ago
    Current cycle: test e 500 EW and aromasin 12.5 mg EOD. Just finished week 3 of 12. PCT clomid 50/50/50/50 nolvadex 50/25/25/25

    Question:
    From what I was reading when starting this cycle is I should do HCG the gap between last test injection and up until 3 days prior to PCT, however the more I continued reading the more I see recommendation of HCG during cycle.

    I want to start HCG now, do I need to take higher dose to catch up and reverse my current testicular atrophy (which I’ve read) ranging from 1000 to 5000 iu first week then 250-500 iu bi-weekly up until 3 days prior to PCT. Or, can I just start 250 iu bi-weekly (500 iu weekly) until 3 day prior to PCT. any thoughts or suggestions greatly appreciated about any aspect of the cycle or PCT.

    Also, when would I stop the aromasin?

    Thank you for your time!

    you can do 200 IU daily if you want to. That is what my RX is written for but I do not take that much. I was on TRT for years due to Primary Hypo and when the nuts filled back up I went to 250 2 or 3 times a week.

    Ok, 200 iu daily until filled back up and then 250 iu twice a week or every 3.5 days? Any idea of time frame to expect? There is a discomfort associated with the atrophy which is quite annoying. Thanks for your time!

    You don't need to catch up. Run 250iu twice a week until you end your cycle.
