    Question Is an AI a must for PCT?

    Coming off of a deca/test cycle and curious if running an ai throughout PCT is that important. I've run it throughout the 14 weeks so far, but running out. I've read that it is a good idea to help boost natty levels? I've run HCG throughout the 14 week cycle and will do until 4 days prior to PCT of clomid and nolva.

    An Ai is absolutely not necessary for PCT, I've done many PCT's and none of them have involved an AI. The clomid and nolva should protect from any gyno during the rebound stage and some estrogen post cycle actually speeds up your body in producing it's own test IMO.

    I would like to hear what the guys think who do run an Ai during PCT though!

    Well I always run one at a low dose and always am fine. I know someone will argue with me on this subject but have hears this on a couple occasions. Arimadex ran along side nolva has been known to minimize the effectiveness of adex.

    I am running test and deca too and using aromasin right now. I hadn't planned on running the Aro through the pct but if the Est sides get real bad like lots of bacne then it might be a good idea. How much deca and test are you running??

    Re: Is an AI a must for PCT?

    I will said that is not necesary but according with some reaserch I`ve done with 19nor specifically. Aromasin should be the option if you want to run one. The reason is cause the enzyme is permanently deactivated there is no estrogen rebound with Aromasin. With Adex which bind competitively to the aromatase enzyme, and eventually unbind, rendering it active again. This means once you stop taking the AI(Adex) estrogen rebound is more likely to happen. But like I said is not always necessary, if you are Gyno prone you should consider as an option.

    Nolva and clomid should keep your E in check, but i would at least have the ai on hand just in case.

    sorry pikki didnt see this post! Word is that aromsin is THE ONLY ai which should be taken during your PCT! Haven't done it yet personally but am going to this cycle. I hear (like POB said above) that it makes PCT much more comfortable and takes away that bitchy feeling, that comes with PCT especially clomid

    Re: Is an AI a must for PCT?

    Good articles. One point of interest was: "There is no evidence to suggest waiting any length of time after your cycle is over will increase PCT effectiveness…it simply prolongs the time you aren’t doing anything positive to regain your natural hormones." So instead of waiting 2-3 weeks after your last shot you should start the serms right away.

    Anyone agree with this?

    I just start pct depending on the esther used. Exogenous anDrogenic levels need to be down before effective pct can take place. So for test e/cyp bout 2 weeks after last shot. Prop bout a wee, and so on.

    Yes and with deca/test 3 weeks. But the article said to start right after last shot or pill. Never heard of that before.

    yeah me either BeEF! thats the first for me sometime i don't know wtf Tony Roberts is talking about....that makes NOOOO ****ing sense so who is ever thinking of following that don't. If your on an Ethenate Ester wait two week before u do your PCT!!!! DEF!!!!! Unless....i havn't read the article to the fullest in a while....he may have been refering to doing the HCG blast right away and then wait five days from end of blast and start PCT. but i'll have to read it again

    Re: Is an AI a must for PCT?

    IMO I like to belive in Dr Scallys report cause the are studies by DR`s about it. Yes you start HCG right way next day after last shot, but no SERMS. There are 2 studies about Scally about it,I post one old here for test/deca in which he stated in his report about run both together, but there is an update on that one. Start HCG at 2500iu for 10shot eod then start SERM treatment. This will give time for esters to clear before to start PCT. Lulu point something and then Cranium hit it again depend on the esters. The half life info upthere is a great tool to use so you can know when they shold be clear. Or there is this calculator I found very usefull. http://www.roidcalc.com/
