Bulkmuscle, is your calculator correct? It seems to be a little off. I just plugged in the numbers to simulate a single administration of 600mg enanthate and got this:-
day 10 - 331mg, day 21 - 160mg, day 31 - 83mg, day 42 - 40mg
Shouldn't it be close to 300, 150, 75, 37mg?
Anyway, its an interesting topic you brought up. Not many calculate the compounded amounts of all the injections and their halflifes.

Poobah- I agree with you on how this calculator, although may not be 100% accurate, could be quite useful and does prove to a point how it is useful to end cycles with orals/short esters.
Houseman- DR.D has proved himself many times around here and is one of the most, if not the most, knowledgeable person on this board when it comes to AAS/science/chemicals. He has been involved with it most of his life and even works in the pharmaceutical field if I remember correctly. He wasnt bashing anyone without reason to do so, the argument turned sour, so things arose. Bottom line: DR.D knows his ****!!

You make it sound like I just came to Am.com. I've been here for a couple years now. Before, I believe, Doc got on the scene.
I'm not saying he doesn't have knowledge. We know he does but forgive me if I I don't blindly believe and trust 100% what one says. If he isn't willing to provide his research (or at least link to it) in this discussion then why should I believe? Just because *I* know he knows his stuff?
Bulkmuscle doesn't know him from a hole in the wall I bet yet you want him to blindly follow? Doesn't that kind follow the "brotelligence" mentality we've been trying to get away from the past few years here?

I know you have been here for quite awhile, its not like I have never seen your posts before. If you want studies to back some of this up, where are the studies to back up the pct calculator? Yes it gives studies, but none of them are on half-lives, ironically the whole point of the pct calculator. One study is about the effects of testosterone in men, makes you bigger/stronger, well no ****! The other is simply about HRT for men and what the average concentration test levels are for the normal man...again nothing to do with half lives. I am not expecting anyone to follow someone blindly, simply DR.D has the experience with all of these compounds to know how they work in the body. This discussion is going nowhere....the only thing at this point to prove something, is someone doing bloodwork throughout their entire cycle and running bloodwork everyweek once cessation of the testosterone and monitoring test levels for several weeks past the last administration of exogenous test. Dont think there are too many studies around about that though...Originally Posted by houseman

Hence why I suggest someone providing info that could HELP improve the calculator for different PCT methods.
I know plenty of guys who do DO PCT like this and it works really well for them. They swear by it.
But, people do things differently and perhaps Bulk can expand on this tool with the help of people so a LOT of people cna benefit instead of just some.
The guy comes up with a nifty tool/idea and he gets slammed for having a different PCT method than what most here are used to. HELP the guy out... don't **** on him.
Now, if he choose to ignore studies posted by our all knowing Pappa Doc then let's **** on him. lol

I'll just add this from personal experience... I know coming off a long ester cycle it takes me about 5 weeks before my sex drive goes from insanely high.. to down the crapper.... 5 weeks... To me that leads some credibility to the timing of this pct calculator.. and I'm sure I'm not the only one that experiences 4-6 week libido crashes post cycle. I swear I fuked like a insane bunny all during PCT, my new girlfriend at the time didn't know what the frig hit her..... The whole time I'm thinking pct is a piece of cake. But like all good things it came to a end.
The point is.. I'm pretty sure as long as there is at least a level at or above what you body normally puts out, your sex drive will be intact... once below this point, the crash begins... Timing wise, bulks calculator makes more sense then the 2 week method....
Granted, due to the onset of effective pct supps... it is probably foolish to wait 5-6 weeks.... Also In my mind the use of products like rxt and activate can mask to some degree the level of testosterone in your body potentially allowing recovery that much sooner then normal... right now I'm leaning to 3-4 weeks.. using test prop a week out from pct start date. and like I mentioned earlier I'll be running that for 8 weeks.
If anyone else has something helpful to add by all means please do... When do you experience libido crash on a long ester cycle?

Ending my last cycle at 750mg/week test cyp, around week 3 I could definately tell test levels were dropping, and week 4 was just that "oh ****" feeling where I could tell I was crashing.

For the second, and last time, do your own research. I already told you I would not provide links. I learned most of this **** before the internet was even invented. You can't necessarily run a 2 hour search and figure out what's taken me years to learn. If you don't believe me, I could really give a **** less at this point. Your loss, but if you don't keep my name out of your mouth, you will be committing the fallacy. Seriously, I don't want to here another word from you about this unless it's an apology for your ****ty attitude and an admission of your error on the calculation.Originally Posted by bulkmuscle

Are you talking to me?! Maybe you should learn how to read before you pop off at the mouth again. Goooooo back, read what I said again (it's post #12 in case you're too "challenged" to find it). I was confirming his calculation but warning of it's shortcomings too. I don't have a damn thing to prove to you or any one else. Learn for yourself if you’re so narrow minded, and when you realize I was right, don't bother to post it. I already know. You and bulk are the only troublemaker I see here. DO NOT get derogatory with me again. I did not disserve it and will not tolerate it.Originally Posted by houseman

this bashing of Dr. D is so unbelievably unwarranted i don't know where to start .. he has provided more MEANINGFUL help to more people on this board than anyone i can think of .. he knows FAR FAR more about this than 99.9% of people on any of the boards
show him a little more respect because that was honestly bull**** .. furthermore EVERYONE should get more respect than was shown to someone the board as a whole voted as a member of the month

okay this thread is closed and for all the bashing involved.. it had better not begin in another thread period...
