    First cycle - test only, do I need HCG?


    As I'm real talented at screwing things up, I'm gonna try to make my first cycle as idiot-proof as possible.

    -12 wks. of test-e 250x2/wk
    -Nolva starting 14 days after last shot, 3 weeks 40/30/20
    -Have some ralixofene handy as I'm a bit susceptable to gyno.
    -Also some some clomid, but from what I've read, not necessary w/ the Nolva around.

    My question is with HCG. Posts I've read here have either said HCG is mandatory for anything over 8 weeks or that HCG isn't necessary for moderate dose test only cycles. Which is it?

    Also is HCG really a research compound? I haven't seen it around the board sponsors sites. and it freaking expensive at the online pharmacies - >$50/1000u.

    Any comments & advice greatly appreciated. Thanks guys.

    Me: 33yo, 190lbs, ~14%bf (yeah, higher than I'd like - I had a little too much fun on my honeymoon last month). Lifting for over 10 yrs. Training for first powerlifting meet. Best raw (belt only) lifts 400/300/500 @ 203lbs.

    with that cycle it isn't mandatory; however, it would definately help recovery when PCT starts. keeps the nuts in check. i'm not sure on the legal aspect but that is a high price.

    Bump... Price is very high...


    and HCG is not available and will not be available as a research chem.. as I believe it's a schedule 3 drug. (I may be wrong).

    As far as I know its not scheduled, but don't quote me on that.

    I agree with Beelz, its not a must on that cycle. I don't think its not a must on any cycle really its just very beneficial. I like to use it on every cycle regardless of what I am running just because it helps avoid the crash in the beginning of PCT.

    And yeah thats a real high price. Try foreign pharmacies, just make sure they are reputable. Law allows you import up to 3 months worth of perscription drugs if you are worried about that.

    I would consider HCG a must in every cycle. That is just me though. As swale (HRT DR) put it, its better to keep the horse in the barn. I personally dont like to see my nuts shrink to nothingness on cycle, kinda a mental thing I guess. However, I used hcg throughout my test only cycle and pct was a breeze, only very minimal loss of libido (but i dont have a lady, so who cares?) and I was using test-e 1400mg/wk! Keep shopping around, the price you quoted is about what 10,000iu should cost.

    It IS a MAJOR crime in many states. You can read all about it in Legal Muscle.

    I believe you are mistaken that you have seen it for sale from ANY of the board sponsors.

    Yeah I'm digging my horsies in my barn. I'm following the 500iu/week protocol. It's got my ponies all riled up still.

    Anyhoo, on a side note.. 1.4g's a week and no lady? Bro your forearms must have worked overtime... LOL.. either that or you must have been hitting on anything with a skirt.

    I read in other threads, that using HCG while on cycle can make you go for a longer cycles when on test (i,e 16-18 weeks), any one heard that ??
