So I'm not going with a SERM-heres' why.
when I was a teenager I had puffy nipples. I had surgery at around 15 years old. The nipples weren't sensitive, but they were embarrassing to me when I would take my shirt off at the beach, after sports practice etc. I feel i shouldn't have an issue with gyno reoccurrence after my cycle of Turinabol. The only other issue I may have due to estrogen is water weight, etc.
That said, the only other reason for a SERM is to restart HPTA. My TB dosing was 60/75/90/90/90/90. I don't feel shutdown. Testes is up and running and no shrinkage has occurred. In fact, I may have had low Test before the cycle due to alot of drinking.
I am going to use PCS or Recycle plus a Cortisol Control like Reduce XT or Lean Extreme plus Activate Extreme. This is experimental on my part and will post results.

Well when u never recover cuz u didn't do a proper pct don't come crying. A pct is just as important as the cycle itself unless you wanna be on trt for life at 21

shutdown starts at your pituitary, not your testicles. just because you have balls doesn't mean your not shut down.
I've been on testosterone replacement therapy for 1 year. I have huge balls. I'm also very very shut down. And guess what else, I dont feel shutdown!

If you have puppy nipples, I would get those checked out. Canine nipplitis is a rare, but potentially life-threatening condition.

As far as OTC stuff goes, I really like the full TRS. If you don't want to spend that much, I'd at least run Sustain Alpha and TCF-1. Start the 12 day TCF dose on the last 6 days of your cycle and the 1st 6 days of your PCT. Wait 12 days, then run the 2nd half of the bottle. For Sustain Alpha, run it 5 days on, 2 days off until it's gone.

yes, at the pituitary. I stand corrected. yes read alot of things and sometimes I mix it around. I wont cry, trust me. I dont have puffy nipples, I had them as a teenager.

Now I'm on HCG+TRT and feel amazing.

To the OP - I'd possibly consider asking your family physician for some bloodwork if you feel your testosterone levels are low. It would also stand you in good stead prior to your cycle (as you'll know what your starting level was).
I personally didn't respond as well to SERMs as I did to OTC methods in terms of recovery. However I do advocate HCG on-cycle with longer or very suppressive cycles. SERMs are a personal choice, users should research carefully as they come with their own side effects, sometimes worse than the original compound on-cycle!

While Tbol is quite possibly the mildest AAS on the HPTA, SERMs do more than just boost test and prevent gyno. They also improve your lipid profile, which undoubtedly will take a hit from the Tbol.
But SERMs are so cheap and easy to obtain, there is no reason not to use one for PCT.
Also, why be stuck with maybe 75% of your normal test levels for weeks after, when you could boost them to 150% + of baseline after coming off?

Why the **** would you even take the risk???? Dude...more then likely your shutdown...you have introduced artificial test into your body which signals your body to STOP producing its own test....like someone said above...this has to be one of the DUMBEST experiments.....but... good luck man...

If you had puffy nipples as a kid, just wait until your body is in a disastrous predicament because you failed to re-start and do a proper PCT. It is a self-imposed kick in the nuts, pun not intended. I am somewhat hesitate to believe that someone would openly show their intelligence, or lack thereof on this subject. And the part about not, "feeling shutdown," only solidifies the latter part.

I've heard this too, and maybe it varies depending on which SERM a person is using, but my triglycerides went through the roof when I ran Nolvadex at 10mgs a day for 4 weeks. My LDL did go down pretty substantially, and my HDL dropped but only to 40 (which is still in the acceptable range) but I was pretty concerned by my triglycerides. After my bloodwork, I googled around and found that Nolva can wreak havoc on your triglyceride levels and so it's not recommended for people with certain medical conditions.
I'm just throwing that out there for people to be aware of.

so by admitting that I'm not going to run a SERM b/c of this or that is questioning my intelligence. What about taking AAS, DS, PH? Is that intelligent on our part? A proper pct doen't guarantee anything. Is only shows someone is following protocol. Its a fact alcohol lowers testosterone. I never said it would lower it more than a cycle. the only advantage is on cycle you increase exogenous testosterone. I like to see studies on how a SERM helps pct.

The value of information about SERM's as a PCT comes from the effects of a SERM. For instance, there is TONS of literature supporting nolvadex to significantly increase LH, and T levels and not to mention it's proven affect of not allowing estro to bind to breast tissue.
That is good enough for me to think "Hey, maybe I should jump on some nolva after a steroid cycle since my LH and T is gonna be low, and estro is gonna be high"

Protocol? You are clearly delusional and should do some research on the human endocrine system with regards to altering ones hormones. Seriously, I am now, more than ever, questioning your astuteness and ability to reason. I will not entertain your fallacy about a SERM NOT helping; any half-witted individual can do a bit of research and find that a SERM WILL help and should be used in conjunction with other ancillaries.
