Do clomid if you want to make sure to get a good restart and if you are strong mentally, cons of this is that the side effects are harsher, is it worth the risk? Up to you really. Nolva if you are unsure, I mean most people will do just fine on nolva, so why even risk it, but if you are strong mentally, then you are not really risking anything, are you? Can you see how I am showcasing it as an dilemma because it will be different for each individual. With HCG it's easy, if you have the money then use it. The only down side is that it costs something, it makes the restart easier, and keeps testicle atrophy from occuring, it should be in every cycle, and if you don't have enough money to buy it, then reconsider doing a cycle, but it's not a total necessity, especially not for small cycles considering it takes 4 weeks for test to kick in.
I get 2, 4 and 5 and I’m completely natural. I have had people accuse me of taking steroids many times and it pissed me off. It gets me to the point where I want to take steroids just so that I can say “Now this is me on steroids fckers!”. Lol. But nah I get a lot of acne outbreaks naturally and I have had many stretch marks as well as abnormally fast muscle gains. I’m a very lean person and when I stop working out I’m capable of drastically going from jacked to skinny as heck. When I start back up again I blow up quick. Another thing I’ve noticed is my pumps are naturally a lot more intense then the average lifter. Like my shoulders blow up like bowling balls and veins and shreds show up all over them along with my arm’s and chest. I’ve had a tone of people accuse me of taking steroids because of these factors. I also had a relative hug me once and say I was jacked and as solid as steal. He said only steroids do that. (He took steroids in the past) But it is to my understanding that muscle is solid… or at least a lot more solid than fat. At the time I was taking creatine and l-arginine with citrilline malate (which is a precursor to arginine) and a lot of BCAA’s.
It was once commonly used during PCT in the belief it will aid testosterone restoration, however this is flawed due to its mechanism of action. The drug mimics the effects of LH in the body, stimulating the Leydig cells to produce testosterone in the testes . This can be fruitful in rectify existing, or avoiding testicular atrophy on cycle. It will not aid the process of recovery in the post cycle phase however, as the drug will bring about heightened oestrogen levels due to the greater aromatising of the testosterone being produced in the testes , thus bringing about greater inhibition of the HPTA .
