    If AndroMass increases Testosterone, why PCT?


    If AM increases test, why is there a need for PCT? Im totally new to PHs and just exploring, learning. I know all the regular PHs, just not the Andros and they seem less harmful
    shut up and squat!!!

    Anything that messes with your hormones needs PCT. AndroMass (along with other PH/AAS) will start to shutdown your natural testosterone production, though not as severe as normal PH/AAS's. In order to return your natural test levels as quickly as possible, PCT is required.

    no i understand that. i guess i have just been under the impression that compounds like Hrol, mdrol shut you down and then when i see that Andromass actually increases test levels, why would u need PCT ya know

    am doesnt raise test levels. at least according to current labs by testers. you can read about it in a thread over at pp home site. it does however shut down natty test
    Noob looking for alot of guidance
    I've got a hold of some omnadren 250(is sustanon better?) and I'm pretty much clueless about steroids. All i know about it is that it easily aromatizes and it holds alot of water

    Exogenous anabolic hormones lower, and sometimes completely shut down, your endogenous test production. AM is no exception to this hence the PCT.

    thats about 300mg test /wk
    generally it seems add a zero to what you are pinning....i.e. 500mg test usually results in levels around 5000+

    ah gotcha. im just trying to research and learn here. sorry for pissing any of you off lol i am not a complete newb with PH/AAS. i know they cause shut down and need a SERM....etc I just dont know ANYTHING but pinning with test or the logic behind why you need a PCT to bring back levels to normal if Test or AM increases your levels that high...i know with like Hdrol, it shuts you down and makes your test low, which is why you need PCT to bring them back up....

    As I said, when you take an exogenous (outside or foreign) source of testosterone, it tells you pituitary to stop producing testosterone. When you stop taking it, all you're left with is your natural production, which has been lowered by taking the exogenous source of test. ALL anabolic steroids are going to require a PCT. The only difference is the severity and aggression that you will need to return your levels back to normal.

    If you look at the Androstacker you can see that the Testosterone Equivalency that 6 caps per day would give someone is around 3200. That's just about the blasting zone. Even at 1 cap per day the Testosterone Equivalency would be around 950. For any regular human, that kind of androgenic/anabolic power is more than enough to cause suppression.

    i think the OP just doesnt understand how they work. I understand what he is trying to say. like, if PHs shut natty test off and you need PCT, why would you need PCT if andro's elevate test

    He is confusing artificial test from a ph with natural test from the body that is brought on from a test booster / pct. the andro series is not a test booster. It creates artifical (your body doesnt make it) test from the compound itself.

    At least that's what I think he is doing. I agree with ya.

    Hmm. It almost makes sense when you put it that way

    The "Exogenous Testosterone" can be substituted for any hormone you put in your body... superdrol, andromass, epistane, androhard... etc. etc.

    Some cause worse shutdown than others.

    IE, 4-8 wees of Androseries won't require a ridiculous PCT (TRS+TCF-1 will work here), whereas 8-12 weeks of test prop + kicker might require something much more to maintain gains and of course get the body's hormones working again... like TRS+SERM+Mod-grf/GHRP-2+IGF-1.
