I'm in my 4th week of SD, ramped up to 30mg daily. Should I run SD up to 5-6wks total at 30mg and use Nolvadex [tamoxifen] plus novedex [ATD anti-aromatase] as pct - or - should I run it 30mg, stop at 4wks total and use novedex [ATD anti-aromatase] only as pct? Any other suggestions [using another ph after 4wks] if I won't get the nolvadex for another 1-2 weeks?
Here are any and all details you may want to know:
The reason: I won't get my nolva in until 5 or 6 weeks [unfortunately], but have novedex [ATD] ready to go. I was thinking I would just continue my cycle until the nolva came in. My entire cycle is as follows:
Days 1-5 SD 10mg
Days 6-10 SD 20mg
Days 11-current [at 3wks 3 days] SD 30mg [10mg every 8hours]
Liver support with Liv52, 2 caps daily in am
1 scoop NOxplode in am [ED but prior to workout if doing 2-a-days]
1 scoop prior to workout in pm
2 double strength Fish oil tabs in am and 2 tabs in PM
Protein shake in H20 + fat free milk with teaspoon of L-glut, 1tblspn flax seed oil, 1 tblspn psyllium husk fiber immediately after workout.
3 tabs Cell-tech CR5 immediately after workout daily
1 scoop Vitargo carbs in 20oz of H2O in shaker during workout.
6 Gaspari plasmajet tabs EOD 2hrs prior to workout.
Diet has been perfect [except some alcohol]. Sleep could be better. Workouts very long and solid, with a good deal of aerobic exercise too, 6days/wk with occasional 2wo/day. Had no side effects to speak of yet. No shrinkage, no decr libido, no anger, no fatigue. Little acne.
Started noticing gains really only at 2wks and ~5days, but there are reasons for the delay, in my opinion, most importantly, I have been sick with a cold from day 8 of the cycle until now [most of the cycle unfortunately - got better then worse]. I have worked through it non-stop. Also noticed more definition before noticing any strength gains.
I had originally planned to cease my cycle at 4wks and taper nolva over 4wks 40-30-20-10 while also on novedex [ATD]. Stay on the liver support and creatine during 4wk PCT and then stop everything but protein, glutamine, fiber, and fish oil for 4-6wks. Now, since I?m not getting my nolva in as soon as I had expected, I am considering continuing my cycle until it arrives vs. just using the ATD as PCT. Could also stop SD at 4wks, use the ATD product and then add in the nolva when I get it, but I don?t like this idea because of the delay in starting tamoxifen. There are opinions both ways, about whether tamoxifen is absolutely necessary, but I mainly wanted to get opinions on continuing my cycle for another couple of weeks. One other factor is that this is my first pro-hormone cycle ever and first PCT ever. I am 29yo, 185#, 5'10" been working out for 7 years, and working out religiously for 2years.
I think I know what I'm gonna do, but just wanted to get some opinions. Thanks, SV.
