    Poll: Shrunken Nuts -who gets them, who doesn't?

    Hey bros,

    Question: What percentage of people on a cycle get shrinkage, and how many get none?

    One of the things that I cannot understand is why some people can do a huge cycle and have virtually no "testicular atrophy" and others (like me) do a mild one and they're Shrivel City after only a couple of weeks. I mean, theoretically, EVERYBODY should get it.

    What, I wonder, makes the difference? Age? Number of cycles? Kind of gear used? Some bros even report having way less shrinkage on way heavier cycles!

    Anybody have ideas??

    Oh, brother, I spelled "Moderate" wrong! Am I a genius or what? Could a Mod fix that for me, since I can't fix it myself in VBulletin? Thanks.

    One thing that made me wonder was a thread by The Butcher asking a similar question -"The first couple of times I used test (300mg/week for the first time, and 500mg/week the second time) my nuts atrophied" Now "my nuts do not atrophy much if at all even when I am using 1.5grams of test a week."

    Does Modern Science have any answer for this? Where are those guys in lab coats when we need them?

    Well, I used HCG , which helped a LOT! I'd recommend it to anyone who gets shrinkage -even 500iu for 2 days/week can make a big diff if you're a shrinker like me. Mine got the cold water thing too and some guys (anyone read the article about Ken Caminiti in Sports Illustrated?) see them retract completely, where they disappear into your stomach!

    The scary thing, at least to me, is some guys never recover size fully, at least from some posts I've read. Smaller balls =less natural test.

    Me too, but my girl doesn't seem to care she doesn't like balls anyway, thats why i gotta shave them so she will give the boys some attention. That was way more than i planned on sharing, but i think its funny.

    Yeah, I think I may have just made a mistake. I put down "none or or very little at all". Next cycle is gonna be a little heavier and having said that I will probably be reduced to a couple of raisin sized nuts. Shit, I should of just left well enough alone and skipped right over this poll.
    Now I probably f-ing jinxed myself.

    Mine shrink a little now, I'm 37, when I was 23 I did a cycle and they shrunk like crazy. I wonder if age makes a difference.

    Well, mine shrank bigtime and I'm 50! If I hadn't used HCG regularly I wonder if they might have disappeared altogether.It was my first cycle.

    I definitely get some shrinkage .. I'd guess it's 'moderate', there's always a little somethin'-somethin' there.

    Two years ago, i did a deca only cycle with no pct whatsoever. My boys were at about 75% for 1 1/2 months and sex drive didn't go back to normal for 2-3 months. I was 22 at the time. Needles to say, I've been schooled up a little since then. I'll never do a cycle again without test prop or clomid.

    I don't know if this will make a difference but medical reasons are...

    Testes shrink according to my professor because when you take in a synthetic hormone, the body does what it would do any other time. It will not overdose it's self so it stops producing what ever hormone you are taking and the balls retreat into the body because it isn't needed outside. That goes for all if you take thyroid meds your thyroid will compensate. They usually will only temporarily stop and after a little while start producing it again. Like people who take a lot of pain killers the body stops producing endorphins and it takes at least a couple of weeks after stopping for a body to start again. So it all comes down to do you want to carry a big set but be a wimp or do you want a good body?

    Coming from a womans perspective though... I don't care how small the testes are I would rather have a man with decent equipment (that works) and small neighbors than be fooled into thinking theres more there and find out its all balls.

    Just a little female input.

    Shrunken Nuts

    Mine shrunk up and run up to my throat so bad my girl and I had to laugh about it. All she cares about is the Daddy of the step children, so I think in most cases girls don't care...

    I am in PCT now (HCG to clomid back to HCG) only 2 more days till it hit the HCG again...They came down and hung out when i did the hcg but went back up now that I am on Clomid...

    When do you usually see them come down? During clomid?? or after??

    Not to change the subject but I thought HCG should only be used BEFORE Clomid, never after!

    Well, thanks ctrose. But what prompted my Q was wondering why some guys get no shrinkage -I mean why not? And it looks from the poll like 30% don't. I just wonder how science would explain it?

    Different results for different hormones. With test, I got only a little shrinkage. When I was cycling Tren , the boys lost about half their size. The fact that it was Tren alone probably had a lot to do with that. But it still fits into the question you are asking.

    Still no replies from the biochemists / endos ?

    Bump.

    If they don't shrink to peanut size you're not taking enough Test.

    Moderate...at best (or worst?) I'm 24 and notice the change in size....although my girlfriend doesn't notice and doesn't care. I think they all hate nuts anyway, shaved or not.

    Alright I a starting to understand this whole thing... I took Andros when I was 14 and my balls shrunk like whoa! They came back to about 70% but they haven't really increased much since... i mean they aren't tiny but I don't think I want them any smaller.... I know that I have stunted my testicle growth now and also my natural Test which really blows but o well now... Is there any way to make my balls grow bigger??? HCG ??
    (ive also noticed my natural strength gains are absolutely SQUAT.. i really don't get ANY stronger without supps. wheras some of my friends blow up off nothing... not fair)
