    You could try drive, or drive + rpm. Drive is pretty crazy as far as libido raising

    You have no libido now that you're off them? Or you're off them because they killed your libido?

    drive is worth a shot, or could just go with icariin.

    no problem. you can get e-form on another retailer. nutraplanet sells bulk formestane and penetrate. Mix the two and viola. I personally think you wouldnt need that much formestane anyway. PM me if you want the link, I do believe there sold out right now however. Very popular/effective product.

    if you have it handy, its worth a shot. part of the question is whether caffeine affects your libido downwards. if it does, then rpm might not help. but since you have it there, its worth trying

    I personally have been affected by caffeine in the libido department. I think it depends on the person and the dosages used. When did you come off JW and IGF-2 btw just today?

    Since JW has a designer steroid in it a SERM will probably be useful, get some torm or nolva.

    Overkill probably but better safe than sorry.

    what was your dosage like btw? Im just a bit curious because my friend double dosed JW for a little less than a month. He ran 5 caps mon-fri with sat and sunday rest. He didnt see anything besides acne. No shutdown, no lethargy. He did report that it made him hungry as ever however.

    Ive never done anything like JW or PH's of any kind so it's hard to tell. Mnnn anyone chime in? Im thinking he's just suffering from low test, but I have no first hand experience so I can't really come up with a solution. E-Form is a very product to use to help bring up your test levels. Im pretty intrested in seeing if E-Form and JW run together would be a smart idea. Maybe E-Form/Formestane after a JW cycle if suppression does occur? Anyone? Im stumped

    it is a little odd, I don't recall seeing too many JW logs mention it, many did mention libido being high while on it. but it could just be my memory.

    What do you guys recommend to do. Im hoping, but not sure if it will go back to normal after taking some kind of libido booster.

    well, the libido boosting substance could help kickstart you, or alternatively give you something to work with till your normal libido comes back

    Easy, do you know how someone would know if they are low in test, or completely shut down? Im just wondering because in this case and sometimes in pulses such as epi, you could just relatively be low in test right? Also wouldnt something like a SERM be more harmful than helpful with low test?

    the only way to really know for sure is a blood or saliva test, and you are probably looking at $150 minimum. Really on this he shouldn't be low in test, not significantly lower than he started (maybe a little). If low testoserone is the culprit a SERM would help that, but there are better things to try first.

    do co pay's insurances cover for this? My parents own a company, Im covered under the copay insurance plan. Dont these blood test count as regular check up routines as well? In that case for me it would be 15 bucks for the blood test right? I gotta take advantage of that if I am covered for the blood test. Heck I could probably get a blood test every time around for a supplement. I know/think full coverage plans allow blood test in X amount of time but in my case it just depends on doctor visits. Gotta check to find out, It would be pretty easy to start "testing" supplements in values of blood to see what's cool and uncool.

    yeah, hard to say for sure. Some insurance only covers it once a year, and even then they likely won't test for testosterone levels at your age unless there are signs of a problem

    A SERM would be benificial for low test. http://harryfisch.com/docs/SERMS.pdf

    The whole point of taking a SERM after a cycle is to raise test. JW=designer steroid. What harm would it do exactly?

    I've seen people complaining of suppression after a JW cycle, this isn't unusual. Personally I felt slightly suppressed while on it. I'd definantly get a SERM, toremifene is great, what it costs like $50? Whats the ability to get an erection worth to you?

    A few funky herbs which have been shown to increase mount frequencies in castrated rats are going to cost around $50 too and will do jack ****. SERM's have been proven over and over again.

    Thanks for the link, Ive never done anything suppressive because im a youngin (18) All I know is to stay away from them but in this case, Im just too curious so I had to ask. Would something like E-Form after JW be useful? If I were to ever do a cycle Id do JW for 4 weeks then run E-Form/formestane tampering down for another 2-3 weeks. Ive heard of JW being suppresive but I havent heard many cases of complete shutdown on regular dosages. Maybe full blown double dosing dosages yes, but for the most part the end of a cycle just resulted in low test.

    Do you need PCT for IGF2? There's a pretty strong consensus that you don't need PCT for JW, but I'm not too versed in IGF2.

    Oh that's so sweet. I'm still researching and planning my cycle in December. I have my mind pretty much set on JW/Drive. The draw being that these two would make great stacks without PCT. I have done my homework on IGF2 "yet", but if you had to choose between JW/Drive or JW/IGF2, which would you pick?

    get Drive and JW. be sure to pick up 2-3 bottles though. It's not exactly cheaper than IGF but 2 bottles at 6 caps per day will show some promising pleasing results. ( I can say so from experience 10-15 pounds increase in all compound lifts) (just off Drive. Imagine JW in there!)

    Oh yeah, I'm in the 200+ category so I'll be taking 4 a day. From what I've dug up, a lot of people have recommended loading the first 10 days with 6 caps of Drive, then going back down to 4 for the remainder of the cycle, so it's not going to be cheap.

    IGF-2 has different activity, so it benefits in other ways. If I had to pick between drive + igf2 to go with JW, i'd also go with drive

    yeah. I personally like 6 caps better. I tried 4, I kept my strength and endurance but the other added benefits of Drive were better noticed on 6. The dosages are wrong btw. 6 caps should be for everyone. Here are some benefits I saw after 15 days of 6 caps

    Increased Libido
    Better Mood
    Increased strength (10-15 pounds on compound lifts. Threw in 2-3 caps RPM pre workout as well)
    Increased endurance
    Recomp effect

    I dropped the dosages a bit down to 4 and I didnt notice much on the mood department or recomp effect. I think 6 is the magic number for everyone.
