  1. On american forums they are selling you the gear and ancillaries, don't be fooled into thinking you need PCT, most people recover just fine (especially on testosterone only cycles).. Testosterone only doesn't seem to present with symptoms of secondary hypogonadism (hypothalamic dysfunction), That's when you may need a SERM or GnRH antagonist to restart things... You don't..!! hCG won't do shite for restoration of testicular function, if leydig and sertoli cells are damaged on-cycle, it's a LH mimicking agent, it won't work after cells have necrosed (died).. It only works whilst you are using it, once you stop things return to baseline.. It's pointless in your case.. Research clearly shows most people recover LH & FSH within hours/days of exogenous test being out of your system anyway, what science is telling us, is protection on-cycle is the way forward, rather than wasting money on pointless PCT drugs when you don't understand the physiological mechanisms behind what you are undertaking...
  2. You don't need PCT unless on a very suppressive multi compound cycle... Protection of the testes ON-CYCLE is of primary importance, try taurine 3-5g/day royal jelly 1g/day to avoid testicular oxidative stress whilst on cycle.. Arimidex, maybe last few weeks of cycle as you taper off to avoid estrogen dominance as testosterone levels decline...
  3. GABA is it illegal in nz

    Unsure about its ability to pass the blood brain barrier in significant amounts to have therapeutic effect... It is seen as precursor to GHB via Sandmayer reaction... Hence illegality..

    Try zinc picolinate, but remember zinc can leave you deficient in copper so it's best to make sure you get adequate amounts too..... from google: Zinc is not easily absorbed, but more can enter your bloodstream when it's chelated, or attached to another substance that is absorbed well.

  6. low test. and HRT

    Remember it's the metabolic conversion process of testosterone to estrogen in the testes that produces oxidative free radical damage to leydig and sertoli cells, once necrosed the damage is permanent making recovery or testosterone production/spermatogenesis less likely, therefore a low dose AI might be prudent in your case of elevated estrogen... Most of your estrogen production would be from aromatase in adipose tissue (high bf%), but some will be from the testes, so protection of what functioning cells you do have working there should be a priority.. An endo should know this, it's pretty basic stuff... $800/hour..lol
  7. low test. and HRT

    try omitting these from your diet.. Aspartame. ... Caffeine. ... Sugar. ... MSG and sodium nitrite. ... Dairy. ... Gluten.
  8. low test. and HRT

    You need to drastically lower that bf%, 10-12% would be optimum, look into time restricted eating: I've been following a time restricted protocol for the last 4-5 months bf% is about 8%, and feel much healthier.. as described in the video, water only when not eating which is between a 9-10 hour window every day, with the odd cheat day thrown in at weekends, no refined sugars, no alcohol.. Clomiphene is known for severe depression type symptoms, so don't be too concerned, it is expected.. Disappointed your "endo" (small case it was intended) won't prescribe an AI.. but you need to help yourself by dropping that bf%.. I could be wrong, but isn't clomiphene a synthetic estrogen so could show up as estrogen on blood estradiol testing.???
  9. low test. and HRT

    What's your BF%..? What course of treatment are you currently on for the estrogenic side effects, if you don't mind me asking..
  10. low test. and HRT

    from memory things settle down in time.. plus you're on a pretty low dose, i'm surprised you are effected..
  11. low test. and HRT

    It's fairly common on AAS for some people, can't think of the mechanism behind it..
  12. Proviron

    I tried.... Sorry..!!

    I'll try explaining how the substitution of 4,5 double bond for an extra hydrogen at carbon 5, makes aromatase binding imposible.. If you observe the first drawing, see how the A-ring has a double bond between carbon 4 and 5 (double line connecting both).. To substitute the double bond (remove it) you need to replace that bond with an extra hydrogen atom on carbon 4 and 5, (see carbon 4 it has a H below, this is a single hydrogen) when the double bond is removed an extra hydrogen will be added to carbon 4 (making 2, and one hydrogen to carbon 5).. This is because the outer valence electrons of a carbon atom have 4 bonds, so must be bonded 4 times either with 4 single bonds (like with hydrogen) or a double, or even triple bond to another carbon atom or other molecule, those 4 bonds must be taken up.. You see how in the lower drawing the correct spatial arrangement is shown for the testosterone molecule (note it is not flat as drawn above when seen in 3D).. See the 4-5 double bond we discussed above is connected by a double line (double bond), when we remove the 4-5 double bond replacing it with extra hydrogens, the electrical charge changes (altering the shape further).. It is this conformational change of shape that makes binding of the aromatase enzyme impossible (like changing the shape of a key so it no longer fits a lock) I hope you understand..
  14. mens clinic?

    Self medicate..
  15. low test. and HRT

    Testosterone can affect immune function, you could also be showing an allergic reaction to your first dose, it generally subsides never to return, its just your body adapting to BA, or BB.. Natural production will decline, as will other downstream hormones from the initial precursor (cholesterol) such as DHEA, Pregnenolone etc.. Don't stop effexor cold turkey whatever you do, if you decide to stop see your Dr first and decide on a slow taper off over several weeks..
