What is a post cycle therapy?

   Post cycle therapy or PCT is mostly used after a cycle of anabolic androgenic steroids. The steroids alter the natural hormone level and the testosterone production. When we end the use of anabolic steroids, the testosterone level is still in a suppressed position and it's recommended to let your body normalize the natural production of testosterone.


Then why we need PCT if the body can naturally produce testosterone?

   PCT is more used to shorten or enhance the recovery process of your natural production of testosterone. But remember, there is no PCT that will return 100% of your natural level of testosterone as it was at the start of using steroids and even post cycle therapy will not help if the steroids will not be used as it's indicated on the box or on the medical prescription instruction that is in the box. Normally the body without PCT will recover in about year of more, depends on want steroids were used and how much time they were used. It's a very big stress to the body and you will not see the results from the use of the steroids.


When should you use the post cycle therapy?

   The best way to start post cycle therapy when the use of steroids have ended, but if you will start a new cycle very soon, less than 4-12 weeks, depends of how long was the last anabolic steroids cycle, then it's not necessary to start a post cycle therapy, because it can cause stress to the body.


What Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator (SERM) should be used for PCT?

   The best options are Tamoxifen Citrate and Clomiphene Citrate, both can get the job done equally.
   Tamoxifen Citrate known as Tamoxifen, Nolvadex or Nolva is one of the most used medication among bodybuilders and athletes, it's not an androgenic steroid and is used for 2 purpose, for the prevention of the side-effect of the anabolic steroids and for PCT. Tamox stimulates the testosterone production by increasing the release of Luteinizing Hormone in the body. When the anabolic androgenic steroids are used, the natural production of testosterone is suppressed and after the cycle is off the natural testosterone needs a long time to recover. Tamox shorts the time of the recovery. For many bodybuilders for PCT, it's enough to use only Tamox.
   Clomiphene Citrate known as Clomed or Clomid it is very useful in the PCT programs. It's stimulating the testosterone production and reduces the time of recovery after steroids use. As an anti-estrogen, Clomed does not reducing the estrogen levels or inhibit the aromatization process but protects the body from gynecomastia. Clomed even has a very good impact on cholesterol levels, it's acting as estrogen in the liver and promotes a healthy cholesterol level.


Are there other options for PCT?

1. HCG (Human Chorionic Gonadotropin) - is a very powerful peptide hormone that mimics LH (luteinizing hormone) which in turn stimulates the testosterone production. The HCG is more used to prepare to body to SERM products. It's very dangerous to abuse HCG for a long period, the body may become dependent to the mimicked LH.
2. HGH (Human Growth Hormone) - It's very good for protection of your gains and minimize the fat deposits that can occur after steroids use. But it's more used for a long period, minimum 6 months and is used more in on-cycle.


How to use SERM, HCG and HGH?

   For HGH is simple, if it used in on-cycle just continue with it in PCT. For HCG and SERM is more difficult. There are 2 types of cycles. Cycles with large and small esters. If the cycle ends with a large ester steroid, the PCT program that includes only SERM products should start after 2-3 weeks. If for PCT will be used HCG, then HCG should be used after 2 weeks of the last injection and for 10 days. After that begin PCT program. For small esters start SERM therapy after 3 days from the last injection. The same for HCG, after 3 days from the last injection, use it for 10 days and after that begin PCT program.


How to take Clomed/Clomid (Clomiphene Citrate)?

   All steroids have their half-life in blood (indicates the time a substance diminishes in blood) and to know when to start using Clomed you need to know when the androgen levels are at a low level. But don't wait too much because you can lose the gains you have made.
   Then when should Clomed be used? Here is a list below of the steroid with their half-life.


Steroid Time after last administration Length of Cycle
Anadrol 50 / Anapolon 50Oxymetholone 8 - 12 hours 3 weeks
Nandrolone Decanoate / Deca durabolan 3 weeks 4 weeks
Danabol / Dianabol 4 - 8 hours 3 weeks
Boldenone undecylenate / Equipoise 17 - 21 days 3 weeks
Trenbolone 3 days 3 weeks
Methenolone Enanthate / Primobolan 10 - 14 days 2 weeks
Sustanon / Sustamed 3 weeks 3 weeks
Testosterone Cypionate 2 weeks 3 weeks
Testosterone Enanthate 2 weeks 3 weeks
Testosterone Propionate 3 days 3 weeks
Testosterone Suspension 4 - 8 hours 2-3 weeks
Stanozolol / Winstrol 8 - 12 hours 2-3 weeks

   For example if in your cycle you have Dana and Susta, Dana's half-life is 4-8 hours and Susta's half-life is 3 weeks, then the PCT should be started after 3 weeks.
   Now if you know when should be Clomed used you can start taking it. The Clomed therapy period is 3 weeks, on the first day you can take 200-300mg, after that 100mg for the next 10 days and the last 10 days 50mg.


How to take Tamoxifen/Nolvadex (Tamoxifen Citrate)?

   Tamoxifen is an alternative to Clomed, they are almost the same, but Tamoxifen is much stronger if we compare them by milligram dosage. For example, 40 mg of Tamoxifen is about 150 mg of Clomed. The half-life of Tamox is about as long as Clomed, so it's possible to be administrated once a day.
   The most used dosage for moderate-heavy cycle is:
   Day 1 - 100mg
   Day 2-11 - 60mg
   Day 12-21 - 40mg.
   For moderate short cycles, the dosage can be dropped by 20mg. As for more heavy cycles, were is used Deca and/or Trenbolone the administration of Tamox should be increased for 3-5 days.

   In an attempt to cover all angles, most of the bodybuilders use both, Clomed and Tamoxifen for the PCT. The most used dosages are like these:
   Day 1 - 150-200 mg Clomed + 40 mg of Tamoxifen
   Day 2-11 - 50 mg Clomed + 20 mg of Tamoxifen
   Day 12-21 - 50 mg Clomed + 20 mg of Tamoxifen


In conclusion.

   Tamox and Clomed are very good for PCT program, even better than HCG, but some users are using it to prepare for PCT Tamox and/or Clomed program therapy. Tamoxifen and Clomed are both very good, some users use for PCT only Clomed, some users use for PCT only Tamoxifen and some users use them both for PCT. It depends on what anabolic steroids are used for the cycle and for how much time. For heavy cycles, the best is to use them both, for light/moderate ones can be used Clomed or Tamoxifen or both.
