Shut down from Ostarine, pct help?
Ok so I've been doing an 8 week cycle of ostarine at 50mg per day, and at this point I am pretty sure it is causing shutdown. I have never used AAS before so I don't know the degree of the shut down. I have been experiencing a lowered volume of ejaculant, noticeably reduced libido, and even an occasional dull pain in my testes. My testicles haven't noticeably shrunk, however they don't appear to be hanging as low as before and they feel almost squishy to the touch. So I'm pretty sure I'm being shutdown to some degree off this stuff. Sorry to everyone who assumed it doesn't cause any shutdown , it definitely appears to be doing so at higher doses.
Anyways I was thinking of stacking Nolvadex with USP labs Prime for PCT. I'm not exactly sure how to dose the Nolvadex for pct though. Could anyone help me out?

Oh and other than this I have not experienced any side effects from the ostarine. The only thing worth mentioning would be reduced acne, but this is probably because of the decrease in natural tesosterone and therefore DHT

That dose does seem higher than what I have heard most people running, but I've been curious about shutdown with this. I wouldn't run Nolva for a PCT though, maybe just something like triazole, I doubt you need a serm. Can you get bloodwork done? Also, how were your results with the sarm?

I'm 20 years old, so a bit young to be messing around with this stuff. I did some research into ostarine however and thought it would be better than traditional steroids, since there was no known shutdown. At this point I wish I had just done a cycle of test though, since the gains were not all that great. There is a noticeable pump when I work out though, and I have gained about 12 lbs. I don't know how I would get blood work done, and I wouldn't know where to acquire triazole. I just got a bunch of nolva in the mail though. Why shouldn't i just use that?

Androgens will shut down natural testosterone and Ostarine is no exception. This stuff is a lot like Natadrol actually. You will need a pct.

can anyone recommend a good pct plan for me then? I have a ton of nolva at hand. Other than that I could probably get my hands on any legal supplement. not sure about anything else

if youre already shut down, run that mothrfuc*er as long as u originally planned...
run nolva @ 20/20/20/20 or at 10 for the last 2 weeks
a DAA supp @ 3g a day throughout pct
and erase inverse to the serm.. 4/3/2/1 (maybe a few more weeks if u want)
btw .. 12 lbs is an acceptable amount of weight for any cycle...

LOL my bad bro i meant 12 lbs of muscle is good for any cycle..
how the f did u manage to gain 12 lbs of fat ...?
my advice to u is to go spend some time in the diet forums
take it as a lesson learned... and now since youre 18 you should hold off for a few years ... (like 7) and then run something if u still feel the need..
i really like daa in pct
and i really like nolva.
dont take too much time off man.. consistancy is the key !

Why were you running this at 50mg..the most ive seen is 25mg? Just curious
01-21-2011, 10:27 PM
this is funny, because original studies on the 5 sarms originally released, with ostarine & s4 being in that 5, had some level of hpta down regulation, ie, shutdown.
conclusion was that a perfect sarm in the sense of the word, has yet to be created.
but no one ever actually learns about the stuff they put into their body, they just read what their good bro's tell them on the internet, and where do you think they got their info from? the people selling sarms, instead of the people researching it.

I am currently running Osta at 12.5 i did try 25,50mg and went back to 12.5 i didn't see any difference between 12.5 and 50.. but its treating me nicely im thinking to bridge this 5week cycle to my next cycle so im thinking to get blood done after Osta or after my PCT hmmm to be continued...
You should run your nolva 20/20/10/10 you will be fine, or since you already are shutdown ŦÚČĶ ĨŤ bridge it to ⓈⓊⓅⒺⓇⒹⓇⓄⓁ

Many personnel have ran 12.5-25mg levels of Ostarine with minimal shutdown. At 50mg I would be really curious to see how much shutdown has actually occurred. Prior to PCT, are you able to run a testosterone test? But also you would need a past history, completely clean baseline test to compare it to. If everything does not line up to complete the test, no worries, I just figured it's an opportunity to get some data.

With all due respect, why would you do 50mg of a substance when virtually nobody has gone there before- of a substance that is not even approved yet and still going through clinical trials..
Risky and foolish. You probably would have been alright doing 10 or 15mg ED for about a month and have no shutdown.
Be careful or you will screw up your whole hormone profile for the rest of your life, including having low libido. I am sure you will bounce back but it is not worth it man.

So you used it for 8 weeks so far?
01-23-2011, 09:43 PM
ostarine IS NOT AN ANDROGEN
THE BODY DOES NOT RECOGNIZE IT AS SUCH so no negative feedback loop occurs,
I used Ostarine IN PCT and I have bloods PROVING it isnt suppressive- at least not for me, dude you DO NOT know if you are shut down unless you get blood work- get some blood work done dude- then come talk to us
01-23-2011, 09:45 PM
**** have you guys READ ANY OF THE SCIENTIFIC ARTICLES ON OSTARINE?!
obviously not, reports show that ostarine is not suppresive in clinical conditions, i can almost promise your not shut down- blood work, until then nothing matters really

Several blood panels done while on osta with ZERO shutdown. Even Patrick Arnold has confirmed this.
Now I cant speak for 50mgs, but that is a VERY high dose.

Just because Ostarine does not increase LH or FSH levels in pilot studies DOES NOT mean it has no hormonal action. If something stimulates the androgen receptor, it is already working through hormonal mechanisms by this factor. Sure the shutdown may be minimal at a low dose but there will undoubtedly be some form of HPTA decline. Also because it works through the AR it will raise bilirubin levels and cause prostate hypertrophy as all androgens do. Much like anabolic steroids, even if the suppression is not as severe.

Estrogen is suppressive to HPTA function, you sir are speaking out of your a-s-s, I deal with people like you daily. Estrogen, progesteron and prolactin rises will lower free and total test levels.. I do not know too much on DAA, however I do know DAA raises test levels, and because daa raises test levels, your body will automatically produce more e2 via aromatase enzyme.. and will raise prolactin. talking about a sarm is a completely differen metabolic ballpark buddy..
You sir I will claim as ignorant, so I shall not call you a tool..

If estrogen levels rise post-osta then there's inevitably suppression. Case closed
01-24-2011, 11:54 PM
01-25-2011, 12:00 AM
^ yeah i saw ostarine does increase estradiol, it even says in the write up. So, why schwell, would you say it doesn't cause shutdown? That's contradictory in and of itself.
01-25-2011, 12:02 AM
it doesnt when used with something called an ai to keep it in check- but listen, bottom line is this
01-25-2011, 02:01 AM
01-25-2011, 08:23 PM
I will drop the guys at Sarms Search an email and see what they say.

this is how i understand it from anatomy
too much testosterone increases aromatase enzyme, which increases estrogen. this keeps the T:E levels somewhat constant. a rise in E is seen by the body as too much testosterone production and the body will produce less testosterone. therefore, estrogen is suppressive. this is also how AI's work. ur body doesnt sense any estrogen, so it makes more testosterone... no estrogen b/c its not being converted (or whatever) by aromatase, so it pumps out more testosterone (to a point).
i dont know all the specs about ostarine, but i probably should start looking into it as ive been on it over 2 weeks. 12.5mg FTW
