View Full Version : How long after cycle to start running HCG?

04-27-2005, 08:39 AM
I'm currently on

Weeks 1-10: 500mg/wk Sust
Weeks 1-10: 400mg/wk EQ

How long after the conclusion of this cycle should I begin to run my HCG? I'm planning on using 1000 iu/day for 10 days.

Immediately and be sure to have nolva. Read the consensus statement for timeline and recommended ancillaries....

You may want to wait at least 7-10 days after your last shot as you will have elevated test levels due to the sust having mixed esters, some long acting.

As bigboy says, the PCT at the top of the page has great info. In fact it suggests using short acting esters at the end of a cycle to keep you from the slow slide in test levels and the trouble of figuring out the best day to start PCT.

Depanding on how far into the cycle you are, you may consider upping the sust in the middle a bit (say to 750) and then ending it at 8 weeks. Then the EQ will keep you through the sust tapering and you will have a better handle on when to start PCT... about 4 days after your last EQ shot.

I am sold on having some short acting AAS on hand (prop, turinabol, winny) to end a cycle that has long acting esters.

Or, especially with a low-dose cycle like you're doing, you could save yourself the hassle of using HCG and just get some clomid. It's easily as effective without nearly the side effects.

My bad, I did not read the sus in there. Definately get a short acting ester and follow the consensus as best you can. I like HCG cause my balls drop and that makes me feel good. http://anabolicfitness.infopop.net/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

What kind of sides does HCG have? How could I combine HCG and clomid? Plus, what about the sides of clomid?

When you use HCG it can cause gyno. Have nolva. Clomid makes me get bacne, blurry vision and feel like a depressed bitch. I can only take for 1-2 weeks max.

What's a good clomid dosage and for how long?

Universally accepted as THE testosterone recovery tool. It blocks estrogen from the HPTA and stimulates the production of LHRH. LHRH then initiates the production of LH, which in turn signals the testis (if not atrophied) to produce testosterone.
Week 3-5: 100mg ed
Week 6-8: 50mg ed

All of your questions are answered in the Consensus Statement at the top of the page. When I came off in OCt I printed that out and followed as best I could.

when I came off my last cycle I waited about 2 weeks then ran clomid at 100mg a day for 7 days then 50mg a day for about 21 days.
