When to Implement a PCT Plan -
It should go without saying that the time to implement a Post Cycle Therapy plan is when all Anabolic Steroid use has come to an end. This is a given, however, it’s not quite that black and white. If you’re going to be off-cycle for only a short period of time then a PCT plan can be counterproductive and cause even more stress to the body.
Limiting stress is extremely important and If you’re only going to be off-cycle for a short period of time, there’s no reason to stimulate your natural production when you’re going to immediately shut it down again, a shock the body does not appreciate.
For this reason, a Post Cycle Therapy period should only be implemented when we’re going to be off-cycle for an extended period of time.
This means that no Anabolic Androgenic Steroids will be present in our system and of course, the next order of business is to define an extended period of time, twelve weeks being a good place to start.
If you’re going to be off-cycle less than 12 weeks, while you will lose some of your gains they will come back shortly once you go back on-cycle. Conversely, if you’re going to be off-cycle longer than 12 weeks, it’s time for a PCT plan for the reasons discussed above. You must note that this time scale does not include the time you are on you PCT Cycle. The term “off-cycle” means off everything.
Post Cycle Therapy Options
Now that you understand what a post cycle therapy plan is and when and why you should implement it, you need to understand how to implement it and the options you have. How you cycled your anabolic steroids will play a role, but regardless of your steroid use your PCT plan will always include a Selective Estrogen Receptor Modulator (SERM), and Tamoxifen Citrate (Nolvadex) and Clomiphene Citrate (Clomid) will always be your best options.
For your PCT we recommend you Buy Nolvadex which we have available on our site. In most cases a good Nolvadex PCT plan will run for approximately 4 weeks. In some cases 5-6 weeks may be needed depending on your on-cycle, but 4 weeks is a good general rule of thumb.
Most will find a dosing of 40mg per day to be an efficient starting point with a tapering down as the week’s progress and then discontinuing altogether. The basic Nolvadex PCT plan should be as follows: Week 1: 40mg every day Week, Week 2: 40mg every day, Week 3: 20mg every day, Week 4: 20mg every day.
