5 Weeks On And Have Dead D**k

Generally speaking, what will happen when you clear test is is will "gradually" come down aver the course of 3-4 weeks. Depends on how high your dose was during cycle. A 300mg/week cycle for 10 weeks will not take near as long to fully clear as a 600mg/week cycle for 10 weeks. Understanding the suspension in which your testosterone sits in is crucial to this point.
Test - E ~ 10 - 10.5 day half-life
Test - C ~ 12 day half-life
Test - P ~ 3-4 day half-life
Test C, for instance. Let's say you have 800mg of active testosterone in your blood when you stop pinning. After 12 days, you'd have roughly 400mg of active test. After another 12 days, you'd have around 200mg..and so on and so forth. Get it?
The Cypionate suspension forces testosterone to clear very slowly. Due to it's esther, it cannot surge into your blood and it can't vamp out quickly either. Just look at EQ for instance, which has a 16 days half-life. It takes MONTHS to clear the EQ from your system. This is why doctors use Cypionate as their drug of choice. Less potent and less likely to cause hormonal swings.
What you want to do is let the test get low enough that your testicles will actually respond to PCT ancillaries like Clomid, DAA and Toco-8. Otherwise, you risk wasting PCT for nothing because as long as your serum T levels are sky high, your testicles will not see a need to produce more.
You need to look at your HPTA as a manufacturing environment. It takes forever to get a mill up and running at full speed from a dead standstill. However, the goal for a manufacturing supervisor is to never have "downtime" and to always be producing, even if at slower speeds with less output. Likewise, we try to accomplish the same thing with our HPTA by using a GnRH like hCG on cycle - to prevent total shutdown or "downtime", if you will. It is much easier to speed up an already active system rather than to kickstart a system that was previously shutdown. It takes much more time and power to get things going rather than to keep it going.
This translation is also congruent to basic physics as well. It takes more energy (and often, time) to get an object that is stationary to move again rather than to speed up and already moving object. You have less friction to deal with...
Does this help?

I react to steroids the same way, I have no libido no matter how much test is pumping thru me. I just stopped my cycle because I d**k would not work at all. It started to affect my relationship.
My muscles are pharmaceutically enhanced.

I didn't read all the way did you get the issue dealt with?
In my single days I might do a half- cialis or v-dog with new strange but being in a relationship it's less pressure, I guess. Sounds like these guys are steering you in the right direction though.

On top of all that her vagina is so friggin tight it was a struggle to get it in, she didnt seem like she enjoyed it, I know I must sound like a bitch right now complaining about tight vagina but really, sometimes you just want to slip it in and go to town. I cant do that with her. So goes the saying: 'Be careful what you wish for, you just might get it."
Anyway, we went to the Home Affairs to get the legal marriage but the paperwork was not in order but I have to say I was more scared to do that then when I went to the Gulf War. In fact, I d rather go back to the 1991 Gulf War then to get married again. I feel horrible saying this but I'm looking for an exit strategy.
As for my estrogen, i felt like it was creeping up again so I took a 1/2 letro on tuesday and another 1/2 on wed and then 1 full one on thursday. I dont know if I should continue. I started Clomid today and Forged PCT.

If you're not ready to get married again, don't. It's really that simple. You'll know when you're ready again and there will be no doubt.

I don't know man, I'd try to have her get an extended stay here and feel out how the two of you work together on a daily basis. A probationary period of sorts. Let her know that's what you want to try prior to marriage. On the flip side, broken hearts heal stronger in the long run.

If you are looking for an exit strategy - here is one. Be a man. Have some balls. Know that it's best for both of you in the long run.
There are ways to avoid pain like this altogether, but the technique must be incorporated at the inception of the relationship. You don't have that luxury my man. Sorry to hear this. I can only imagine.

It is a natural reaction (especially in men) to fear commitment. Heck I am having the coldsweats over the thought of committing to a new church, lol. People are naturally selfish. The idea of committing to something or someone unknown is scarey and often repels the common man, lol. No risk = no reward. This is business law. It also applies to other various things in life, too.
I am certain this community is the best choice for me yet I still fear this notion of being committed. I wont get into psychology and theology, lol, but I do think there are inherent issues that must be delt with on the inside in order to bravely and boldly commit to something or someone.
I was also a bit fearful to commit to my wife just 5 months ago yet at the same time I was 100% sure and I still am 100% sure that she is the best fit for me. To make things extra clear, you have to ask yourself the right question.
Too many men ask the wrong one --> like: "Is she the right woman for me? Is she attractive enough? Is she respectful enough? Is the sex good and often? etc etc. Don't get me wrong, those things are important but dont fool yourself into thinking that these are the things you will concern yourself with 30 years from now. These attributes of a relationship come and go, and often!
A good starting point is to ask yourself this question: "Am I ready to commit to someone (regardless of who) for the rest of my life?" Do you see how this steers your focus away from your potential spouse and toward yourself? You need to validate or nullify your character when considering marriage. Ask things like, "Do I value commitment more than passion?" Do I value commitment more than results? Do I have a character consistent with trustworthiness and gentleness? People always look at marriage as a test of how well their spouse does at being a spouse. The reality is, marriage is a test of your character - that's all.
Seriously man. There's a lot to think about before just backing out or moving forward.

In the meantime, the Thai girl broke up with me. She felt that I didnt text her enough when I was away. In a way it's good because it saved me having to break up with her; but now I miss her. But I think it's good since it will help me clear my head as to what I should do next.
I've been very sad since I have come back from South Africa. Also just found out that on the 4th we will find out if my company will be laying people off. Great time to look for a job in this Obama economy, 7.8% published unemployment rate and 15% REAL unemployment if you count those who have given up looking.
I think I learned a valuable lesson from all of this and that's 1-try to date only people near you and/or those that can see you as hard as that may be for me and 2-Be faithful, never cheat.

I think it's the title. The fear of dead d**k is a fear of any man; but then once you go in the thread and you see the topic ranges from sexual dysfunction to sexual encounters, to AAS to PCT to hormone imbalances and what to do to politics to personal relationship problems it attracts alot of opinions and people. That's my guess.

fueledpassion's advice above is stellar.

Don't make any decision either way until you're 6 months off of a cycle and your emotions are in check. You've out some many compounds into your body the last couple months or whatever it is I would suggest letting everything clear, return to homeostasis and then make a clear and unemotional decision. If it was meant to be then 6 moths won't make a difference in the long run bro.
