    Low test/estrogen after cycle

    Hey guys,

    So I finished my pct after my last cycle about 3 months ago. I'm finding my libido is super low and I'm general im pretty fatigued so I'm guessing my test is low. I've started taking clomid at 25mg/ed and I'll run that for about 2-3 weeks to see what happens.

    Questions:
    1. Do you suggest tapering that dose or running it straight through?
    2. Will it be necessary to run an ai with such a low dose of clomid?

    Previous cycle:
    Test e 500mg 9 weeks
    Tbol 50mg/ed 6 weeks

    Pct: 5 weeks (started 2 weeks after last pin)
    Adex 0.5mg ed
    Clomid 25mg Ed

    I understand blood work is the best way to go from here but being in Canada that isn't an easy option

    Well, your pct was weak at best which may be part of the problem. A normal pct for a 12 week test cycle (as 9 is to short for long esters) would be similar to the following:

    Clomid: 100 / 50 / 50 / 50
    Nolvadex : 40 / 20 / 20 / 20
    (each number indicates amount per week)

    Remember, you're restarting your HPTA which is shut down. Since you did not mention HCG I'll assume it was not run on cycle meaning your testicals did not maintain function during said cycle as well. Clomid at 25 mgs is really a TRT dose. Adex should not be needed in pct as well.

    Since you've already started Clomid again without getting blood work to actually see where levels are, at least run a similar amount to what I listed above. Maybe 50 mgs for 3-4 weeks taken at bed time to sleep through any bad sides. Then wait 6-8 weeks and do your best to get appropriate blood work.

    Thanks for the straight up no bullshit answer. I only have enough clomid for 1 week of 50mg but I've just tried to get some more. Then I'll go be straight up with my doctor. To be honest I felt mostly fine, just no libido, so I figured it was low t.

    Also I just want to say I have gone through a ton of pct threads and your advice is too notch. Good on you for helping us noobies out man. I appreciate that a lot.

    So I took your advice today and upped my clomid to 50mg. I feel like absolute shit today. I'm so nauseous and anxious and feeling very on edge. Is that going to go away you think because there is no way I can feel like this for 3 weeks

    I did yes. It could be the new pre-workout I took today too. Hard to tell.
